About Kent

I am a certified math teacher in the state of Tennessee and I have a BS Degree in Engineering. I have a Master's from Arkansas State University.

I believe the fundamental goal of teaching is to foster learning. Learning takes place in many different circumstances and contexts. Although everyone is capable of learning, a student's aspiration to learn is a vital pre-condition to effectively mastering new concepts and skills. As a learner you grow your knowledge base. People have multiple learning styles: some learn best in lecture atmospheres, some are inspired by discussion, and others absorb best when they read and reflect on what they have read. The classroom setting can encourage or inhibit learning depending on the foremost learning style of each student. Accommodating different learning styles creates an atmosphere that is conducive to learning. Students take many of their learning practices from the instructor. If the instructor doesn't show interest in the subject and a passion for learning, students are less likely to put forth the effort to learn in that class. As an instructor my goal is to convince students of his or her knowledge before they will show a willingness to learn.

I have developed documents, presentations and spreadsheets throughout my work as an engineer, marketing manager and as a teacher for the last 20 plus years.
