Jennifer Towler

Jennifer Towler

Jennifer Towler has taught mathematics professionally at the middle school and high school levels. She enjoys helping students become actively involved in mathematics by inviting students to ask questions, discuss ideas, and explain their reasoning. Jennifer has found beauty in mathematics and teaching. She agrees with Charles Caleb Colton, “The study of mathematics, like the Nile, begins in minuteness and ends in magnificence.”

Kristin Neill

Kristin Neill

Kristin Neill has taught math professionally from middle school through college levels, as well as teaching college education majors how to teach elementary math. Her teaching style includes asking leading questions that allow the students to work at their ability while encouraging development of their math and problem-solving skills. Math is one of her loves, as demonstrated in one of her favorite quotes by the philosopher and mathematician Bertrand Russell: “Mathematics, rightly viewed, not only possesses truth, but supreme beauty.” She has several years of experience with teaching online math classes and also currently homeschools her own children using the Math-U-See curriculum.

Lisa Shumate

Lisa Shumate

Lisa is not your typical math geek, although she has always appreciated the clear “black and whiteness” of math as opposed to subjective interpretations in the arts. Her career includes a degree in Legal Studies, over 20 years in the adult healthcare education industry, and homeschooling her own children (of varying challenges and aptitudes) for 19 years, using Math-U-See most of that time. She has been involved with Math-U-See customer support in official and unofficial capacities for over 15 years. Of teaching, she says, “My desire is not to be a teacher but rather a mentor — coming alongside the individual student and facilitating learning as he pursues his own education throughout life.”
