The textbooks I use are an older Holt Curriculum. While I use it as a resource, I have my own teaching style when it comes to explaining math. I agree with many of the methods that Mr. Demme uses in teaching Math-U-See; however, I use a great deal of review and more of a spiral approach when it comes to concepts. I have experience working with all types of students – advanced, ADHD, learning disabilities, autism, etc. Due to this, I am able to target students exactly where they are and build confidence in their ability to solve problems. My experience tutoring, teaching in both public and private school, and homeschooling my own children influences my view of students as individuals and their understanding of the material.
