Barry Gelston, M.Ed.
Math Education is performed by the beloved Mr Gelston who has a Masters Degree in Mathematics Education and 15 years experience in teaching and tutoring Mathematics.
Mr. Gelston is a college instructor who has taught Elementary School Teachers how to teach math, supported teaching candidates to pass their certification exam, and currently works with primarily Home School students who are ready to learn elementary math on a conceptual basis so that they can comfortably grow into math learners well beyond Algebra.
Mr. Gelston's approach is based on developing a deep conceptual understanding of the structures of elementary math leaving algorithms and procedures as the final stage of learning math.
Math Education from a Licensed Math Teacher who Specializes in Elementary and Middle School Math
"I specialize in one thing and one thing only, the transition from Elementary to Advanced Mathematics Education," said Barry Gelston, M.Ed. "I have helped math learners from ages 6-70 build a deep conceptual understanding of basic math. The two biggest challenges that I face are un-teaching misperceptions delivered by procedure only math education and the student anxiety that method produces. Once Elementary Math is relearned, the rest flows much easier. Teaching math is pure joy!"
