speakerWhat People Are Saying

At the beginning of each lesson, I make sure the students know what we are learning and why we are learning the concept. I have learned that if the students understand how this concept applies to real life, they are much more likely to pay attention as they see the real life application. -- Makenzie Stroup

Whether it’s high-interest reading materials, interesting example problems, or catchy ways the information is presented, Makenzie finds a way to pique student interest and quickly engage them in the material covered. -- University Supervisor
