Ball State University
Ball State University (Master's) (Master's)
I received my Bachelor of Science (cum laude) degree in 1977 from Ball State University.
My Masters in 1983, also from Ball State. My degree is in Elementary Education with a math endorsement. I taught mathematics exclusively for all of my thirty-eight years in a classroom.
My first five years I taught in a seventh and eighth grade setting where I was the only math teacher in the school. For the next twenty-nine years I worked in a much larger school and my classes were varied. I taught advanced level Algebra and Geometry and moved into a ninth grade setting. After retirement from the public schools I taught a remedial math course at a local university for three years.
I love math and my students have been infected with that love. I specialize in "decoding" math terminology. It's a foreign language until you learn to speak it! I also specialize in breaking down math story problems so that anyone can learn to do them. I received my Bachelor of Science (cum laude) degree in 1977 from Ball State University.

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 taught Algebra at all age/ability levels for the last thirty-five years. This includes high school and college level algebra. If you need a refresher course I can break the main ideas into "digestible chunks" to speed up the process.
For the past three years I have taught an algebra course at IUPUI. It incorporates some algebra first year and some algebra second year topics. I have also tutored a few students in this course privately.
Over the course of thirty-five years teaching math, I spent several years teaching seventh, eighth, and nine graders pre-algebra and general math. I am able to break the math down into "digestible chunks" making it easier for the student to understand.
