I try to ask questions that will get students to think and understand concepts on their own, but will reexplain ideas and concepts in different ways if the material is confusing.
...In my career I often use Calculus skills and hope to teach others. One of my favorite aspects of Calculus is applying the concepts to real life situations and where each portion of the course can be used. Pre-Algebra has always been one of my favorite subjects.
