Math Is For Everyone

October 8th, 2014

Hi everyone, It’s Ted here. It’s been a while hasn’t it? Math was always my favorite subject in school. I loved teaching and talking about it. Every one of you has been wondering what I have been up to. Well for starters I packed all my things and put them in a uhaul truck. I then booked a flight to America and moved to the big apple. I could see the statue of Liberty. She’s a beauty up close.

Anyways, so now I live in America and started teaching at an American school. It’s so different how everything operates in this school from my home country school. Most of the American kids here don’t understand math on some level. Thankfully I am here to make math easier and explain better than a lot of teachers who teach math. Most students admit to me they struggle with Math because the teachers here teach in a fast pace and don’t engage with students to help them. I assure them I am not like that and happily give out session tutoring. Once they have tutor sessions the kids improve in math so much. Even ones who felt they just couldn’t get math easily done.

Math isn’t really that hard, even if you believe it is. Math has a set of rules and steps you have to follow. Once you get the hang of it you’ll easily be able to do it. It’s kind of like when you get your first job. At first you have no idea what to do but after a while of doing it you just instantly get it. That’s what math is like. It just takes a lot of patience and practice.

Math isn’t one of those subjects where you will get off right the back especially if you haven’t studied or practice it for awhile. Most people who seem to get math are the ones who studied hard and practice until they finally got it. It’s ok if you don’t know how to do math at first. No one can just pick it up. Math is full of equations that we won’t understand unless we are taught. Even professional math teachers like myself had to start somewhere.

One useful application of math is cost analysis. When I moved, for example, I had to weigh and calculate all the expenses to determine the most efficient way of spending my money. It can be a pretty big hit on your wallet when uprooting and traveling across the world. I determined that the best course of action was to do it myself via truck, and by reducing expenses with a Uhaul coupon. In the end, I reduced my costs by over sixty percent. Talk about a life hack!

There was a point in my life when I was really young and had no clue on how to do math. It was such a struggling subject. One of my teachers kindly offered tutored lessons and helped me understand all the math formulas and math equations. Math takes time to understand and eventually you will get it. That was something my father told me. I never forgot that and I make sure my new American students understand that. Math isn’t going to be an easy subject to learn but once you get the hang of it, there will be no problem.

So whether it be Algebra or word problems, geometry, or calculus, Don’t panic, It all has multiple steps to follow and as long as you follow the simple steps you will be able to manage math just fine.
