...I try to show students how the subject matter connects with their interests and how it is useful in everyday life. I have found that this greatly increases my students' motivation and ability to learn. There is nothing gimmicky about the way I teach - I use textbooks and require that students complete homework.

...Mathematics is a very complex subject to teach, so it must be taught with precision, and I explain it to students at their learning capacity. Mathematics cannot be taught at a fast pace, because, if you do, you've lost your students in the first five minutes. If there's something that students do not understand, reteach it; there's nothing wrong with going over certain parts of the lesson.
