    Math teacher expert guy for an hour! (Plus or minus...) don't get why they are teaching multiplication that way? Looking forward to long division? Just want some support in your back pocket or wish you knew a cool challenge to work on with your kid? TADA!!! Expert on call. If you're already a friend of mine you can get this for free, but what if you don't have a math person in your social group? For a limitied time this one is for rent.

    You or you child in a one of a kind, hand drawn version of of one of the pages from the book. We can't stick you in the book, but we can pretend. Will you see the terrible multiplication table in its natural habitat or will your kid chat obliviously while doom approaches?

    Math expert guy for a day. If you are more than 200 miles from Seattle you'll have to figure out how to get me to you. I may only have my small odd area of expertise but I do rock that small world. I can speak to a faculty or a sub group on ways to do math. Or you can have me virtually! Have a class project you wish had more math in it? Want a math filled class project tied to your curriculum? Ideas for a homeschool group? Even better, think of it as an entertaining long shot. If you had J.K Rowling or Dr. Suess as a speaker for your school or parent group how cool would that be! Well I'm not either of those people, but what if there's a time when people go, "You got the Times Table guy to for 500 bucks?!?!?!" It could happen.

    You or your child will appear in the next book! It's not finished and there's room for a visiting professor or confused passerby. Maybe even room for kid to say thier favorite thing about the times tables.
