Mr. Nick Benes To All Instructors

Upper Elementary Math in Action

Nick Benes is a mathematician, web developer, and Officer in the Navy Reserve. He grew up Lincoln, NE, and met his wife, Maureen, on the first day of college. He has an BS from the University of Dallas, a PhD from Boston University, and has taught in many different settings.

Mr. Benes believes that most students who “hate” math have never had it presented in a way that makes sense to them. He approaches teaching as a collaborative project between student and teacher, emphasizing number sense and concept mastery over memorization. He has found that this approach works well for remedial and advanced students.
