The first frustration that many students face with a difficult subject is answering a question like, “When will I ever use this?” or, “Will I ever be able to apply what I learn?” The student-teacher relationship, whether in a classroom setting or one-on-one, is to make the students’ learning processes less complicated by relating subjects to their experience and listening to questions from their perspective. Perhaps the student can move forward easily just by grasping basic concepts or they may need a different approach in their study habits. By participating interactively in each session, students will be encouraged to master new concepts and develop their logical reasoning process. Whatever their needs, it is my goal help my students build their confidence and appreciate their abilities.
My background includes a BA in mathematics from Dominican University and teaching pre-algebra, algebra and geometry at the high school level. As I moved on to new endeavors, I found that my math background complemented my career in marketing and sales. I have participated in analytical projects in various business sectors and conducted training sessions for adults in the financial industry which included Internet products, Excel, Word and PowerPoint.
