Retired University Math Lecturer in far western Chicago suburbs with 43 years experience

Methodology

Over the years of teaching I have fine tuned the way I approach concepts. I know exactly what examples I want to do and in what order they need to be done. I believe in starting off with a simple example and working from there so that by the end you are prepared for the more difficult problems.

Background

I have taught large lecture courses (200 students) as well as courses in a smaller class setting (32 students). After teaching for many years I had fun answering questions before they were asked. A hand would go up and I would say "The answer to your question is ........".
During office hours for these classes I have worked with students one on one. I especially liked teaching Algebra, and Precalculus. Many of the students in these courses had bad experiences in high school and lacked confidence. It was awesome to see them realize that they could be successful. I also especially enjoyed teaching our Probability course for business students.

Cal's resume

I have a B.S. degree (1969) in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater and a M.S. degree (1972) in Mathematics from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I was a TA at UIC from 1969-1972. I then taught there from 1973 until I retired in 2013 .
I have been the recipient of the "Silver Circle Award for Excellence in Teaching" five times. It is an award given at the commencement ceremony by vote of the students in the UIC graduating class.
I have also received the "Extra Mile Award" awarded by the Chancellor's Committee on the Status of Person's with Disabilities for going the extra mile in helping students with disabilities.
