My name is Mr. Stephen B. I am a middle school mathematics teacher in Gloucester County, New Jersey. I have been teaching Math for ten years now after many years in the business world. I spent the first 3 years of my career teaching high school math in my current district. I have taught grades 6, 7, and 8 for the past few years, and I just love to teach! My business background (20 years in the accounting and financial sector) has made me an expert problem solver.

I tell all of my students each and every year: It is wonderful to know how to do the math in terms of knowing all of the formulas, rules, etc. The real value is having the capability to take the knowledge of these skills and to apply them to solving problems in everyday life.

My inventory of resources is extensive. I often use iPads,laptops, and desktop computers to help my students build their Math skills. It's an ever-changing world for teachers, and I'm ready to rise to your challenge.

My pace is your pace. I move according to the progress you make after each lesson. I believe that students should have fun learning their math skills. Math was meant to be fun, and it really is!
