Jeffrey Wakefield

My name is Jeff Wakefield.  I started teaching math in 1996, at Cal State Long Beach.  I also taught a few years at Cypress College prior to arriving at Mt. SAC in 2000.  I earned my bachelor’s degree at UCLA, and my master’s degree at Cal State Long Beach.  I am married, with a daughter and a son.  My activities include baseball, basketball, working on my house, and serving at my church.  I enjoy teaching because I like seeing people learn, as the understanding of mathematics better equips you to solve problems in the real world.
