Intro to High School Writing
Brian has a Masters degree in Math Education and has taught all levels of Secondary mathematics from Pre-Algebra to Advanced Placement Calculus. He is state certified in mathematics (along with Art History, German, Speech, Health, and Economics). After having taught in the public schools for 29 years, however, he felt GOD leading him to use the window of time that he had to homeschool his own children. He has since pursued this calling these past 5 years while teaching at the FEAST Homeschool co-op as well. Having worked closely with both teenagers and homeschoolers, he strives to create a classroom atmosphere that fosters the ability for students to safely ask questions and to receive help in ways they can understand. Brian desires that every student be able to achieve success in math in order to pursue their own future opportunities. For this reason, he teaches and builds the courses so as to mirror the expectations of the college entrance exams (SAT and ACT). During the process of struggle and triumph, he hopes all his students can build godly character and perseverance and to see GOD in all areas along the way.
