I started my college education at Tennessee Technological University. I finished as a graduate from Memphis State University, now known as the University of Memphis, where I earned a Bachelor's of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. My favorite subject has always been Mathematics, so I've made myself available over the years to help those who struggle in this area. I've tutored numerous adults in College Algebra, including my husband and several of his classmates, when they went back to college later in life. In addition, I have taught High School Algebra I, 7th grade Math and Kindergarten. After school, I tutored elementary students struggling in the area of Mathematics. I also home-schooled my own child for two years, turning her least favorite subject of Math into a confident favorite subject, simply by going back to the basics. I have found that most students struggling in Math and Reading, have somewhere along the line, not confidently mastered one concept. Identifying and honing in on those basic skills, while providing varying opportunities for practice, assure my student's success. Math simply teaches one how to analyze, sort, and think. With those skills, you are equipped to achieve success in life. In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors, gardening and crafts.
