About Dianne

Hello!

I am a retired community college and university, as well as high school, math teacher who is looking to help individuals having difficulty in math or statistics.

During my ten years as a community college math instructor and twelve years at the university level I taught Developmental Math, Beginning Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, Business Math, Statistics, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus and Math for Elementary Education Teachers.

During my seven years teaching high school I taught Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB and BC. I also taught SAT Math Prep and Years I, II, III and IV of IMP (Interactive Math Program).

While at the community college I earned the "Excellence in Teaching" award. At the university I received "BG's Best" award. For high school teaching, I was named the December 2009 "Teachers Who Make A Difference" by WMDT TV 47.

I look very much forward to helping you with your math or statistics needs!

Ms. Dianne

It helps immensely to have as great a son as you do to maintain his focus towards this goal and to be willing to do whatever is needed. I have never seen such an amazingly positive attitude before in a young person! My best to him for an awesome Senior Year!

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.

Discrete Math

Discrete math is math with discrete variables (integers). While not having taught an actual discrete math course itself, I did teach the topics that are in it in other courses. I taught probability and combinatorics in statistics (college level) , logic operators in math for computer programming courses (college level), set theory in algebra courses (college and high school levels) and coding and graph theory as individual topics in Integrated math courses (high school level). I also had graph theory and coding as part of math coures that I took in my undergraduate math degree.

I have a master's degree in math and have 30 years of teaching math (22 college/university, 8 high school).

Finite Math

I have a master's degree in math and have done discrete/finite math throughout my math career. In my 30 years of teaching math (22 college/university, 8 high school), I have taught discrete math or finite math, both as part of statistics classes, business mathematics classes or math for computer programming courses. The probability and combinatorial mathematics is done in statistics, the logic operators are done in computer programming courses and the matrices and linear algebra are done in business mathematics.

Last year I tutored a local college student in finite mathematics and readily saw how business topics which used continuous variables (for example, matrices and linear programming) were included in the course in addition to discrete variables (logic operators, coding, graph theory, set theory, combinatorics).

Praxis

I took and passed the Praxis myself, both the first one (Pre-Professional) and then the Praxis II in Math. I am currently tutoring a student for the math portion of the Praxis Pre-Professional through another tutoring company. A few years ago I tutored a student for the Praxis II in Math through that same company.
