My Thought for the Month, updated May 19th, 02004.
Anyone trying to get in touch with me should keep a watch on the page describing my plans.
If you have a graphical Web browser and a color monitor, you may notice that all pages in my Website devoted to my tutoring services are a specific color of gray, as opposed to the blue that you see on most of my pages. Also, my tutoring pages have my business logo at the top. I hope that this will aid visitors in finding their way around my Website.
Any tutoring clients of mine who are looking for more information on what I am doing should look here. Also, if you are a current or former client of mine, and you think that I may not have your E-mail address, drop me a note, so that I will.
Every summer since 1992 I have worked as a teacher at the Talented and Gifted Summer Enrichment Program held from late June to late July at the University of Oregon (my alma mater) in Eugene, Oregon. I have devoted a portion of this Website to my work there.
Susan Roth (a student that I had in one of my TAG classes in 1997) and two other Eugene students created Peace Process 2001 in the summer of 1995, with outside help, although the Peace Process 2001 team has changed since then. This site has much to interest students, children, and anyone who desires to make the world a more peaceful place.
This site has reports written by young children about mathematicians.
The section of my site devoted to politics is undergoing some slow renovations. I also recommend visiting Project Vote-Smart.

People asked me if I had any suggestions for where to start, so I made a small list. If you have any suggestions for additions or changes, please by all means write to me.
The folks at Global Exchange put on tours that show the underside of the place visited . . .
Looking for the current Thought for the Month? "Yes!" "Why not?" "What are you talking about?" "Absolutely!" "Hey! What happened to that great Thought for the Month that was here last time I looked!" I hear your cry. So go to the archive of old Thoughts.
Also, some of the visitors to this site may appreciate the art visible in Ophelia's Mirror.
