About Jane


Bio

My first time through college at the University of Idaho, I studied Computer Science with a business emphasis. Although I did not achieve a degree in CS, I had a computer consulting business. My second time through, I got a degree in Psychology with a minor in Communication at Boise State University and then did graduate work in Communication at BSU and taught in the Communication Department there for ten years.

My first time through college at the University of Idaho, I studied Computer Science with a business emphasis. Although I did not achieve a degree in CS, I had a computer consulting business. My second time through, I got a degree in Psychology with a minor in Communication at Boise State University and then did graduate work in Communication at BSU and taught in the Communication Department there for ten years.

My communication training gives me the unique perspective of helping students overcome math anxiety as the root cause is often negative self-talk. In terms of my math education, I have loved math since I was a child and was an Idaho State Champion Mathlete in both Simultaneous Equations and Quadratic Equations. Now, I am an author, speaker and book coach with 17 published books to my credit.

I have the capacity to take complicated information and explain it in understandable terms. If one method of explanation doesn't work, I try another. For example, one first grader I worked with couldn't understand carry subtraction. After I tried converting dimes to pennies and a couple of other methods, I figured out she thinks in number lines. That concept stuck and she is now in second grade and doing third grade math.

In addition, I get to the negative self-talk issues which are often missed as a cause of a student's poor performance in nearly any subject.

Whether the student is in kindergarten, kollege* or somewhere in between or beyond, I am eager to help improve their performance and confidence level. Please contact me and let's get started.

*Yes I know I spelled "college" incorrectly. I have a quirky sense of humor which helps relax people as I'm tutoring them.
