I developed www.NumberBender.com with the intention of sharing my math presentations to the world. As a high school math teacher, I have created numerous slideshow presentations for my math classes, allowing me to give the students my full attention. This has saved me tremendous amount of time and has helped students when they are taking notes. Instead of having to hurry and copy their notes before I erase it from the board, at the end of the presentation I can go back and show the slides for those students who have difficulty writing their notes quickly.
Prior to coming to the United States, I have taught in several schools in China and the Philippines. I have been teaching math since 2005 in Barstow High School and have taught almost every subject since. I have taught strategic math, algebra1, algebra2, precalculus, geometry, and AP statistics.
Teaching was never my first choice of career. I used to be a project manager in an IT firm but the teaching bug bit me. As the saying goes, “Many are called, but few are chosen”, and I believe I am one of those chosen few who truly enjoy the job of being a teacher. Teaching has broaden my horizons and taken me to so many amazing places where I met so many wonderful people.

I helped build Sophia and the team of talented people working together to create new ways to approach education. Sophia is a place where everyone can participate in teaching and learning, and where the traditional boundaries of schools and classrooms will fade into history. I joined Sophia in 2009 to help answer a question: “If we could create an online learning experience today, in the world of Facebook, YouTube and Wikipedia … what would it be like?” What a great way to start a company! I am proud of what the Sophia team has created. Join Sophia. Help someone learn. It makes for a better world.
I am just an average Midwestern guy spreading some knowledge about the human body. I received my B.A. from the University of Wisconsin Superior and my M.A. from the College of St Scholastica. Right now. The classes I teach are: anatomy & physiology, pathophysiology, medical terminology, medical law & ethics, kinesiology. I started making these videos as supplements to the classroom a few months ago and have many more to make. In my spare time I play table tennis for the St Adalberts Table Tennis Club (SATTC) and also for the Duluth Table Tennis Club (DTTC). I also like to run, bike, swim, cook and read Stephen King novels when I get a chance.
Hi and thanks for checking out my profile! My name is Rachel and I've been a high school mathematics teacher for 7 years, specializing in Geometry and Statistic. I have been a state qualifying cross country coach, freshman mentor, tutor, ACT Prep instructor, and Junior/Senior class sponsor. My undergraduate degree (BS in Chemistry) is from the University of Tampa, and my graduate degree is from National-Louis University (MAT - specializing in secondary math and science education with a middle school endorsement). I worked as a cosmetic chemist for TreSemme prior to earning my teaching certificate. It didn't take long to learn that students are a lot more interesting and fun to work with than swatches of hair and batches of shampoo :) Not only do I love to teach, but I love to run, cook (and eat!), and I'm an avid scuba diver who loves to dive with sharks!
I am a digital business analyst here at Sophia. I have a B.S. in Computer Science from Mankato State University. I am also the mother of 3 teenagers, all with very different learning styles. Therefore, when I am not working on Sophia, I am helping with homework, studying for tests and supplying all the materials necessary for countless projects. Working with my children has given me a new appreciation for how many different ways there are to learn things. It has become very clear to me that what works for one child does not always work for another. I am inspired by the potential of Sophia to teach people in a way that makes sense to them, as well as provide a platform for people to share their knowledge.
Hey I am Pooja. I work as Online Marketing Executive in Prismic Reflections a Web App UI Design Agency in Mumbai. My role is to get quality traffic for our clients. Usually I spend time on creating strategies.
This is my 3rd year teaching math, but my first year of teaching AP Stats. I am a little nervous since I am creating the course from nothing (nothing left from the previous teacher). I am open to any and all suggestions about calendars, tests, review sessions, and anything else you would like to share with me!

My name is Poonam Roy from India. I’ve been around the web development industry long enough to have actually used a NeXT computer. Since I know that in order to succeed specialization is key. That’s why I’ve stayed where I’m good at. And today I still keep my job at an offshore CodeIgniter development company India.
