Kenneth Tilton On Tilton's Algebra

Kenneth TiltonThe story of Tilton's Algebra begins with me teaching and privately tutoring Algebra for seven years before turning to a career in computer science. After climbing to the top of the NYC corporate software game I decided to combine my two crafts and give more kids the chance to learn Algebra alongside a private tutor.

I retreated to a cave near the Jersey shore and spent five years teaching a computer how to do Algebra and how to teach effectively. As a teacher myself I used a Socratic approach, leading students close to a new concept by reminding them of things they already knew, then letting them make the final leap. I had the software do the same, never telling the student an answer.

How did it turn out? Macworld said it was "in a class by itself", and years after I moved on to other projects, schools and teachers tracked me down to ask if Algebra I HomeworkTutor was still available.

Now I am happy to reply, "Yes, at".
