RJ Toftness math presentation a hit!

RJ Toftness croppedRJ unlocks the mystery to math!

RJ Toftness came to the new CLC building to do a math presentation last week (August 13th) and he was fantastic! He presented his book, Unlock the Mystery to Math, and his unique math instruction methods to our tutors, staff and families.

RJ has been an educator and tutor for over 30 years. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Education from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls. For decades, he has been tutoring children and adults and he has witnessed the frustrations his students were having in math. He wanted to find the REAL reasons for his students’ frustrations.

After searching old math textbooks, encyclopedias and dictionaries, RJ discovered the missing pieces to the puzzle:  the basic knowledge of math had been gradually removed since the mid-1960s. While teaching the basics, he found students gained a greater respect and appreciation for mathematics.
