Joe is a prolific writer of self-help and educational material and an award-winning teacher of both college and high school mathematics. Joe has worked with students from the kindergarten through university levels and has taught everything from basic reading strategies to complex mathematics. From the seminal collection of verse, Poems for the Mathematically Insecure, to the novel Wiz Kid Algebracadabra series, Joe has won from all over the world unsolicited testimonials to the effectiveness of his teaching methods. The diverse genre of his writings (novel, short story, essay, script, and poetry)—particularly in regard to its educational flavor— continues to captivate readers and to earn him recognition.
With a renaissance approach to learning and with over twenty-five years experience in the science and mathematical disciplines, Joe, through his novel and engaging style of teaching mathematics, has won success for students who attempt to learn this most difficult subject. One of Joe’s principal endeavors is to give individuals---children in particular---the tools and confidence to do basic mathematics. Once obtained, these tools steer students into gradually increasing levels of mathematical study. Ultimately these same students become effective problem solvers with access to many doors of opportunity.
Joe propagates his teaching philosophy through his articles and books and is dedicated to helping educate children living in impoverished countries. Recently, Joe’s material has been implemented by the math and science education foundation in Nairobi, Kenya, as part of a country-wide effort to spur learning incentives in mathematics. Joe makes himself available for speaking, consulting, teaching and inspiration.
