I received my B.S. in mathematics from Western Illinois University, my first M.S. in computer science at University of Illinois at Springfield, and I am currently working on my MBA at Northern Illinois. I have a strong background in education: from teaching remedial geometry at the high school level to intermediate algebra at the college level. I have been tutoring for over 8 years in all levels of mathematics, high school physics, and ACT prep. I am very patient with people. By using technology, dry erase boards, memory tricks, and even a good old fashion pencil and paper, math can be taught and the experience can be fun. Any person can learn and understand math with the right help and encouragement. Let's get your student on the road to enjoying math.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Microsoft Outlook

Both my universities have used Outlook. Therefore, I have been working with it for 7 years. I have actually had to write a program that helps better sort spam.

Microsoft Windows

I grew up in the era of computers. I am biased towards Windows over Mac, Unix and Linux. I have a lot of experience and patience teaching Windows, especially to elderly women. I am a computer science major, so if I can't navigate through Windows, I should pick a new study.

Softball

I have played travel softball throughout my life. From the time I was 5, I have played softball. I was on several travel teams for 8 years. I love the game and it is very easy to learn.
