About Alvin

Born and bred in Cape Town, South Africa, I taught high school students for 18 years in the area of math. The areas covered were Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry. My classes ranged from grades 8 to 12. I believe that I'm usually pretty patient with my students. I love when students are able to navigate their own way through problems after coaching. I do expect effort and a willingness to not give up. There is no performance anxiety and I believe that perfect practice makes perfect.

I did some curriculum development for the Education Department, after I resigned from teaching in 2007. When I got to the USA, I prepared and moderated College Math papers for an online college, Intec, based in South Africa: in the areas of Algebra 1,2; geometry; trigonometry; pre algebra. I did that over a two year period. I have also presented a modified Math 100 program on behalf of the Disabilities Services department at UWSP. I am currently presenting Math 90 and Math 100 courses on campus as an adjunct faculty member. I prefer face - to - face presentations, the chalk and talk method, with lots of application and exercises, works for me and I am open to coaching online.
