I am a semi-retired logistics supervisor. My degree is in Mathematics, but I have wide interests and believe that life is about learning. When you understand something, it becomes much easier and more to do. Solomon said, "I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work." So it is with study. Finding reason to enjoy the subject is often the key to learning. Memorizing facts will pass a test, but understanding their importance is the first step to mastering the subject.

Teaching is second nature--to the point my wife comments on it. I have tutored Mathematics since high school, where I won statewide awards in Chemistry, Geometry and Trigonometry. I taught college level algebra using a self paced, bring-me-your-questions approach. When I was as stock broker, I would explain how classes of investments work. Many refer to the "W"s, who, what, where, when, why and their friend how. How many know they are from a child's story by Rudyard Kipling? If you know how something works, you can do it. If you know why it is done, it becomes easier to adjust to the new or unexpected.

My life has taken me many places, including war zones in Iraq and within sight of the top of the world, but home is still a modest house in Waco. If you want to share the journey, let me know.
