Teacher qualifications are the ‘Most Significant Factor’ in improving student achievement. Experienced, well-credentialed teachers have a positive impact on achievement for all students.

Teaching Philosophy: Setting a good example; helping and encouraging students to ask any question to help them grow, creating an environment to engage, motivate, and make them more competitive, implementing a learning focus state where and how the mathematics apply in decision making, engineering, and any real-life situation by guiding them to construct their way of creating and solving any problem without breaking any math rule. It is all about learning focus and having fun with math like playing a computer game. Our game is all about solving puzzles and answering math questions. First, we learn and understand the question and then try to solve it. If we find the right solution, we win. If not, keep playing, challenging ourselves until we solve it. It is not always easy; most of the fun is learning new things, mastering new methods, and solving new puzzles.

Instructor Bio: Ayanaw F Hagos is the founder of Utopia Math Academy and instructor/mentor/advisor. He is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Motlow State Community College and at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide Campus.

Ayanaw holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Mathematics from Chapman University (Cum Laude), a Master of Information Technology in Network Architecture from Capella University, and also holds an M.S. in Applied Mathematics from the University of West Florida.

He has multiple Associates and Certificates of Military, Network Engineer, and Leadership/Management training from the US Air Force during his 20 years of active military service. He was a handpicked Mathematics Instructor across the Air Force to teach at the US Air Force Academy Prep School, Colorado Springs, CO for four years.

He was a military Mathematics instructor, course director, and course lead of Mathematics instructor at the US Air Force Academy Prep School in Colorado Springs, CO. As a US Air Force Cadet Candidate Instructor, alongside teaching Mathematics, molding future Air Force leaders was his main responsibility. He taught College Algebra, Pre-calculus (Trigonometry), Calculus I, and Introduction to Mechanical Engineering.

Currently retired from the military, he joined the US Air Force for only one reason, education; however, after completing some of his education, he continued to serve. He said, “At first, it was very difficult to accept serving another country, the USA, but not for Ethiopia, his originality. He continued to serve knowing that serving for the U.S. is serving for the Whole World.”
