As a non-mathematically inclined individual, my mathematical accomplishments can be likened to successfully running a marathon in an ill-fitting pair of ice skates on scorching asphalt. Because of my personal history with math, I can relate to the feelings of imbalance, confusion, awkwardness, insecurity, and frustration that other mathematically challenged individuals experience. I can envision the stumbling blocks they will likely encounter and can illuminate the path before anyone lands face down in the gutter in front of a jeering un-empathetic crowd. I can relate to the experiences of the “keep up or get out” classrooms that perpetuate academic anxiety. I know what questions my students have before the query bubbles up from the depths of the unconscious. I understand the obstacles to overcome ... I’ve been there.
My education includes an Associate of Science in Mathematics from Columbus State Community College where I was an Honors Graduate; I also obtained my Bachelor's of Arts degree in Mathematics from Capital University where I graduated Magna Cum Laude; finally, I attended The Ohio State University where I studied Graduate Statistics as a University Fellow.
Professionally, I have over 8 years of tutoring experience with Columbus State and Capital University as a peer tutor, and at Ohio State in both the Student Athlete Support Program and the Statistics Department. I also taught with Columbus State in the Work Force Development Department for over 2 years teaching GED Mathematics, and I am currently employed at Columbus State as a Learning Support Specialist in the Mathematics Department.
