About Rusty


Bio

First of all, I don’t like math…I have a passion for it. I spend free time doing math problems the way others do cross-word puzzles, or watch soap operas. And, ironically, I wasn’t always a good math student. Until my second year of junior high I was just average in my math classes, and wasn’t recommended into advanced math. Then, in 8th grade, something remarkable happened…I got a GREAT math teacher. Mr. Lunsford made all the difference in opening a new world of understanding. A light...

First of all, I don’t like math…I have a passion for it. I spend free time doing math problems the way others do cross-word puzzles, or watch soap operas. And, ironically, I wasn’t always a good math student. Until my second year of junior high I was just average in my math classes, and wasn’t recommended into advanced math. Then, in 8th grade, something remarkable happened…I got a GREAT math teacher. Mr. Lunsford made all the difference in opening a new world of understanding. A light switch went on, and I actually understood the concepts.

That’s my goal as a tutor. I don’t want to just get my student to pass the test, or even the class. Rather, I strive for them to grasp the concepts, to understand. When that happens you not only learn mathematics, but you will know it for always. Seeing that proverbial light switch go on in their eyes when it suddenly makes sense is a most rewarding event.

I studied math and science at Ball State University, but took the path less traveled by…that of an entertainer. When I was on tour I frequently took correspondence courses (math) as a means of mental gymnastics to pass the time in my hotel rooms. The lowest grade I’ve ever received in a college level math class is 100%. Then, when I was off the road I filled my time by substitute teaching for middle and high schools in Fayette and Hancock counties in Indiana. Almost always math. I was a natural. Usually, when a teacher is absent, he assigns worksheets for the sub. In my case, however, teachers specifically asked for me because they knew I could handle the lecture and instruct the lesson. And, with a background as a performer, I naturally bring an enthusiastic and humorous approach that encourages fun and eliminates stress.

I still take occasional math classes at IVY Tech. Why? For FUN, that’s why.
