About Alan

Alan Walker has been an educator for over 30 years. He is currently the Technology and Data Systems Director for a school district in Washington State.

The book, Memorize in Minutes: The Times Tables, was based on a method Alan developed in his classroom over 10 years ago. Using pictures and stories, he was able to teach ALL of his students the times tables in a few weeks spending just 10 to 15 minutes a day. He shared his method with other teachers, and these teachers provided constructive feedback in return. The final book was a result of hundreds of hours of research and development.  His newest book, Multiplication in a Flash, uses "quick tricks" (mnemonic devices) to teach the twos, fives, and nines, and uses pictures, stories, and activities to teach the remaining facts.

Alan's honors include Washington State Teacher of the Year Nominee, Washington State Christa McAuliffe Award for Excellence in Education, and Washington State Technology Leader of the Year.
