Every student can learn whatever is needed, if we start where we are and move forward in manageable steps. Explanations should focus on making sense, especially in terms of concrete examples. Students can begin to take charge of their own learning experience if they are encouraged and supported. We can provide that support and those explanations as we explore the student’s current status and map a path from there to the learning goals.
I have a Bachelor’s in Math, including Pure Math, Applied Math and Statistics. I also have and a Master’s in Industrial Engineering/ Operations Research, with a Teaching Certificate for Texas and additional graduate math classes over the years.
I have been teaching since the 1980s and continue to do so in a variety of ways to the present day. I really enjoy working with my students, especially when I get to focus one-on-one for their specific needs.
I am a published writer and design and create my own crocheted hats and other garments. I also create recipes for cooking and baking, particularly for special diets. I make wedding cakes and fancy preserves and pickles.
