I'm a retired Chief Financial Officer for a Midwest insurance company. I love to learn and have earned several specialized insurance designations through my studies over the course of my career. I have Bachelor's degrees in Accounting and Business Administration from Mount St. Clare College, a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Iowa, am a Certified Public Accountant (inactive), and a Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU).
My passion for learning has turned into a passion for teaching! I teach a Principles of Insurance & Risk Management class at the University of Iowa, serve as a classroom consultant for Junior Achievement in our local school system, and have led several study groups for my colleagues seeking to earn insurance designations.
I consider myself a "collaborative" instructor. I want to work WITH a motivated learner and offer tools and techniques to supplement what they're already doing and to help them through a challenging concept. I want to build a strong relationship so the student feels supported and has someone they trust will be there for them when they're struggling.
I tutor a wide range of subjects and levels, elementary to adult-learners. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!
