I am a graduate of Chadron State College. As a former U.S. Marine, I completed my BS in Mathematics and my MA in Math Education through the Hybrid program. I have taught new Marines how to fly on military helicopters. I have also taught Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 in High School, 6th grade math in Middle School, and preparatory and transfer courses in Community College.
I am a lover of all math courses and material. I especially enjoy Algebra, Geometry and Finite math. All of these courses really get our minds to bend and concentrate on the process, rather than the number crunching. I am very personable and approachable. Even though I have worked as a teacher, I am not a teacher. I prefer a more one-on-one environment; I believe that this is a place where students can be willing to make some mistakes and fumble with a problem without feeling embarrassed. I will do my best to use what my students know and are learning in school to draw out the solution; I do not believe in just giving away answers.
