Mr. Jay Hill

I have taught in many places and in many capacities, including teaching English in China, high school math in rural South Carolina, college math courses at various colleges, universities, and community colleges (Purdue University North Central, Clark College, Hillsborough Community College, and Tri-C), and even college math classes within the Indiana State Prison System (as a teacher, not an inmate).  In each of these settings, throughout many curricula and subject matter, my driving motivation is to take students where they are and help them move to where they need to be in a meaningful and relevant way. My goal is to not only help them understand the mathematical procedures and concepts, but to become lifelong learners, seeking to relate the logical processes learned and refined in the math classroom to their daily lives and future careers.
This year, I have the pleasure of teaching Honors Geometry and Geometric Design (with Mr. Stonestreet).  I look forward to the honor of working with these incredible young adults.
I also enjoy working with the Model United Nations Club, the Asian Culture Club, and managing the After School Tutoring program (3:00-4:30 on Thursdays in Room A110).  
Help Sessions: Explorer Periods are every Tuesday 10:35-11:05am.  You are welcome to stop by for help during these times. 
The Math Lab is also open throughout the school day.  Just walk in and ask your questions (no appointments necessary). 
Every Thursday 3-4:30, the After School Tutoring Lab is held in my room (A110).  During that time, you can receive free tutoring from NHS students in ANY subject. 
I am also frequently available before and after school (virtually everyday except Tuesdays).  If you want to just swing by and ask a question or two, feel free.
Please come to help sessions with specific questions, so we can most effectively assist you.
