I am 28 years old. That means I am not so far removed from the time when I was a student getting tutored. I was always pretty smart, quick, bright, or whatever you want to call it, but when I got to college things got really hard and it happened so fast I needed some extra help. As it turns out, I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a BS in Physics. I have very strong math skills, but it was the field theory that I needed help with. Learning from different teaching styles and working in groups of 2 or more got me through the program.
I would describe my style as goal-oriented and hands on. I believe that "but I'm never going to use this" is always wrong and I can prove it. Once, when a calculus student of mine said that about derivatives, I took them out to her car and explained how acceleration, velocity, and distance are all calculus terms we think about in the car while she drove us around.
Poker is a game of skill and chance popularized on ESPN over the last 10 or so years with the rise of Texas Holdem and internet gaming. Players makes bets based upon their strength in the hand and the perceived strength of their opponents. Advanced players will go to a third level making bets based upon what the player thinks their opponents think the player has. Successful players will have patience, discipline, and a solid understanding of math and statistics.
I have played poker in "home games" and at casinos for 10 years.
