Jason Elsinger, Ph.D.
“My teaching methods are focused on the students. All my techniques are research based and involve engaged learning. I use interactive lectures, active breaks, and emphasize how we learn mathematics including study habits.”
I have always been fascinated with mathematics and how it can describe the world around us. I greatly enjoy explaining the concepts to help others also see this beauty. As an undergraduate I double majored in mathematics and physics, was on the dance ensemble, and the choir as a bass. I received my Ph.D. in pure mathematics at North Carolina State University, and was previously an assistant professor at Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL. As an educator I enjoy using teaching strategies that emphasize interaction in the classroom. Besides math, I enjoy bowling, disc golf, and going out for a beer.
