# Who am I?

**Who am I, and how can I help you?**

My name is Brian Foley (a.k.a. Professor Homunculus). I was a horrible math student. I got awful grades in math my whole life (except in geometry, which seemed to make intuitive sense to me because it didn’t involve too many numbers). I know the frustration of not being able to “get” what the math teacher is saying.

Being a professional magician most of my life, I’ve been constantly looking for ways to do things that “can’t be done.” Eventually I wanted to tackle my problems with math this way. That’s when I began researching and developing methods to make basic math easier and more accessible to people who feel they aren’t good at math.

I’ve dedicated a good part of my adult life to finding and streamlining ways to make basic math more meaningful and effective for children and adults. I have tried my methods out in many schools across the United States and Europe.* Without exception, the success rate of the methods I teach in this booklet have blown away the standard school success rates.*

Prove it to yourself. Try them out. Order * Numbers Juggling – Times without the Tables*.

Remember – there is a no hassles guarantee.

Let me not give you the impression that I am one of the “world’s greatest” or whatever. I am not interested in impressing you with what I can do – I’m interested in you impressing yourself with *what you will be able to do* after learning these methods.

I want to stress that, while I got decent grades through elementary and high school, I barely passed math, except for geometry (I had a great teacher! Thank you, Mr. Golden). I was one of the worst, most disinterested students in my classes. I don’t want you to think, “Well, of course this stuff is easy for this guy, he is a ‘math guy'”.

**I have never been a “math guy.****“** I hated math. It wasn’t until I was deep into my thirties that I even got interested in simple arithmetic. I am still not a “math genius.” I am not a mathematician, I don’t have a degree in math (I went to school for languages and computer art.) I am a typical case of “right brain” dependency. The left side of my brain (typically associated with math) was never sufficiently engaged – until I learned some math-magic tricks and started developing ** Numbers Juggling**.

When I returned to the U.S. after having missed it so much, I was dissappointed to see the sorry state of elementary school math education here.

We have smart students and dedicated teachers, and still the math grades go down. We put more and more emphasis on testing, and less and less on teaching. We demand that people prove they can accomplish that which we haven’t enabled them to learn how to do very well. Math becomes a punishment, not the great pleasure that it can be for each and every student. That’s right. Math itself has no “mean” components. Math as a school subject, on the other hand, is usually used to show what kids don’t understand, rather than what they do understand. That is very mean.

Get in touch with the enjoyable side of math. Use * “Numbers Juggling – Times without the Tables”* to get the results you want, and learn the ease and joy of working with numbers in an effective way.
