Devry University Keller Graduate School of Management (MBA)
I am a currently a high school math teacher in the Chicago Public School system. I did my certification coursework at Northwestern University. Prior to that, I worked as an actuary for over 30 years. I believe my combination of industry work experience and now in the classroom gives me a unique view of the needs and expectations of students and their potential employers.
My teaching method is to create a student who is a critical thinker, a problem solver. I try to use real world examples whenever possible, and what I wanted in a prospective employee when I was responsible for hiring actuaries at my company.
I use positive reinforcement and engage my students in the learning process by using the inquiry method of learning as much as possible.

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.
I have the ASA designation and am a member of the SOA and American Academy of Actuaries. I worked as an actuary from 1974 through 2008.
