Biography of Joe Pagano
Joe is an award-winning former teacher of both college and high school mathematics. Writer, learning coach, consultant, and inspirational speaker and motivator, Joe endeavors to spread his teaching philosophy through his articles and books and is dedicated to helping educate children living in impoverished countries. Toward this end, he donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every ebook.
Joe is a prolific writer of self-help and educational material and has produced dozens of articles on various topics (he has achieved platinum status and is considered an expert author by one of the leading ezines on the world-wide web. His articles range broadly over a number of topics including but not limited to mathematics, faith, inspiration, self-help and motivation. Under the penname JC Page, Joe authored Arithmetic Magic, and as a result of this publication, Joe was invited to be a guest on the television show the Book Authority.
Joe is also author of several ebooks including Fractions for the Faint of Heart, which shows how to slay those dragons called fractions; the charmingly pithy and popular ebook, Making a Good Impression Every Time: The Secret to Instant Popularity, which reveals the seven keys to gaining instant popularity; the seminal collection of verse, Poems for the Mathematically Insecure, which teaches a number of valuable math lessons (often in a humorous way) and even demonstrates famous proofs in both free and formal verse; and the creator and scriptwriter of an upcoming DVD series that is both visionary and highly educational. The diverse genre of his writings (novel, short story, essay, script, and poetry) —particularly in regard to its educational flavor— continues to captivate readers and to earn him recognition.
Joe’s inspirational writings integrate the concepts of mathematics and faith and essentially show how one is inseparable from the other. Without getting too metaphysical, Joe’s writings help span the gorge of mathematical difficulty in many different areas of this field. His novel teaching methods and creative techniques help students understand mathematics on a personal and more intimate level. To this approach, Joe attributes his high level of success in working with students and learners from all levels. Moreover, by infusing fun into the learning process, Joe instills in his students a love for mathematics, and this ultimately leads to a higher appreciation of this most difficult subject.
Highly motivating educator who gets right to the 'meat' of the problem; in possession of various techniques to 'unglue' the student from his or her dilemma; guided by the philosophy of 'find the student's combination to his or her learning vault, then simply enter to explore its treasures; ' Joe continues to have unrivaled success at making students winners in mathematics.
With a renaissance approach to learning and with over twenty years experience in the science and mathematical disciplines, Joe, through his novel and engaging style of teaching mathematics, has won success for students who attempt to learn this most difficult subject. One of Joe’s principal endeavors is to give individuals- children in particular-the tools and confidence to do basic mathematics. Once obtained, these tools steer students into gradually increasing levels of mathematical study. Ultimately these same students become effective problem solvers with access to many doors of opportunity.
Joe makes himself available for speaking, consulting, teaching and inspiration.

Help, Please Help, Teacher!
Algebra, algebra—it doesn’t make sense, Numbers and variables combined in strange ways, With symbols and signs—parentheses too, My footing is lost, I feel stuck in glue,
How Can This Be?
Take charge young man and reckon your soul, With math it’s possible, so why contest? Why close the door to wonders untold? Dimensions unseen, or places blessed?
How Can This Be?
Take charge young man and reckon your soul,
With math it’s possible, so why contest?
Why close the door to wonders untold?
Dimensions unseen, or places blessed?
Did you ever wonder about the things you could do,
Simply with numbers? You can do miracles—it’s true!
The whole numbers, for example. They never end,
Yet contain an infinitude of primes, while seeming to blend,
