My daughter is a visual mathematician, in that she sees answers and functions rather than necessarily follows the methods put forward in books. Ken has been doing a great job of helping her connect the two so that she can do well in her Calculus class. He also helps her understand how the mathematics apply to her chosen major of Physics, which is bonus.
