About Gina Parcells

Nerdy Math Girl

 

Back in high school, my Dad didn’t need a shotgun…he had math. Every guy who came over was grilled by dad with that big math gun of his.

“Son, can you tell me what 21 x 19 is?”

“Yes, Sir, I just need a piece of paper.”  (Dad relished those moments…poor, oblivious boys.)

“Son, did you NOT learn that (a + b) times (a – b) = a squared minus b squared?”

“Yes, Sir, we learned that.”

“Then, Son, you also know that (20 + 1)(20 – 1) = (400 – 1). Son, are you telling me that you can’t do 400 – 1 in your head?”

I never had a second date in high school. Ever. THAT is the power of math!

Since I had no social life, I graduated Valedictorian from high school and then Summa Cum Laude from Clemson University. Fresh out of college I became a CPA, but accounting was a snoozer of a job. I switched to teaching at a Virginia Beach high school and found both a love for students and a passion for teaching them. I taught at that school for about a hundred years before I decided to tutor students at my house instead…algebra, geometry, trig, precalculus, calculus, and SAT prep…I love it all.  

Everyday, kids thank me for helping.  Everyday, they leave here with confidence.  Everyday, I know that I am exactly where I need to be.
