About Lloyd

My teaching career began more than 50+ years ago. Since the beginning, I knew my life would be dedicated to education. I have had the opportunity to teach all grade levels from 5th through college. Also, teach every math subject on the high school and the majority of courses offered on the college level. After a few years of teaching at a junior high school in Ind., I was asked to participate in a national math training program offered by the Univ. of Ill. Thirty teachers from all over were to become a part of a special project called UICSM. In the years that followed, my total outlook and success in my field increased to where I knew I would continue teaching as long as possible. Now, I was not only emphasizing fundamental math ideas, but the learning styles of my students and ways to make math fun and exciting.

I continued my journey of teaching in 3 states, 5 different school systems, and 3 colleges/universities. About mid-way through my career, I became involved with programs dealing with LD students. Now I was dealing with other aspects of learning and trying to meet the challenge. Eventually I started working with the BUILD program at the Univ. of Indianapolis and teaching classes totally made up with LD students. The rewards were doubled.

Tutoring came along with the teaching early on, but with the help of friends, I opened my own tutoring service in the late 1980s. For three years, I offered math help and test prep help for a community in central Ind. That followed with tutoring for the BUILD program, and then taking on the job as coordinator of the Learning Center at a community college in central Fl. I spend half my time teaching college classes, and the other half tutoring students in math. Working with the person one-on-one at this stage of my life was great. I had many personal resources at hand and lots of teaching experience.

I attended Grinnell College in Iowa, Purdue Univ. in Ind. (BS and MS degrees), and the Univ. of Ill. (UICSM project). My hope is to continue helping others in the field of mathematics, and making math a item of success and fun.
