- I said yes right away. It sounded so exciting with such a young student. It goes well with Gabriel and we learn from each other, says Anders Skoog.
He remembers once when Gabriel solved a carpet number before him.
- He saw the solution in just a few seconds. It was very impressive, I actually got goose bumps, ”says Anders Skoog.
Difficult to capture specially gifted
Anders has on his own initiative read courses in teaching for specially gifted and also teaching for people who have difficulties. He believes that despite his experience, it is not easy to capture specially gifted students.
- A teacher who does not have that education or experience may well think that it is a student who has problems with math even though it does not really have it. It is difficult to find students and education in teaching for specially gifted people may be compulsory, in any case, says Anders Skoog.
Hear Anders tell us more in the clip above about what it is like to teach Gabriel.
