About Betty

I love learning and having FUN. I think of challenges as puzzles and enjoy breaking things down step-by-step in order to understand. This is the philosophy I apply to teaching others.

I completed my B.S. at the University of Minnesota and my M.S. at Penn State. My area of study was Agricultural Economics, which heavily focused on business, economics, and mathematics. I survived and succeeded in these areas by applying them to real-world situations, rather than think of them as big and scary.

I enjoy teaching and mentoring. I have been a mentor at the University of Minnesota for the past six years. This has required me to spend time with a young person helping him/her with career exploration, resume writing, interview skills, and networking. This experience has been rewarding, as it's allowed me to coach and develop others.

I've also volunteered in my religious community. My responsibilities have included Sunday School teacher, international trip chaperon, and group leader. Most of my time in this area has been spent with junior high and high school students. I think I get just as much out of this as the students!

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.

Business

My bachelor's degree is in Agricultural Business. I completed 3000-level courses in Marketing, Management, and Finance. I have worked as a loan officer and for the past six years I have worked for a Fortune 100 company.

Econometrics

I have a Master's degree in Applied Economics. I took one year of doctoral-level econometrics. In addition, I completed undergraduate statistics.

Linear Algebra

I have a Master's of Science in Applied Economics. This degree required me to use panel data (matrices). Principles of linear algebra abound as a result of matrixed data. While in graduate school, I completed a "math camp" course where we studied the theory of linear algebra. In addition, I completed an upper-level linear programming class which required linear algebra as a prerequisite. I received an A in this course.
