Algebra is probably the most important math course that a person ever takes. Why is this? Because all subsequent math courses build upon the basic skills and concepts of algebra. Having a good foundation is important. I have been helping students with algebra for many years, and it is one of my favorite things to teach. I have studied mathematics education at the University of Cincinnati and online at Western Governor's University. I have been a member of the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics, and participated in national conferences. I am committed to helping my students see the beauty of mathematics, relating it to their everyday lives, and experiencing success.
I have a masters degree in psychology, and teach undergraduate courses at a community college. I have completed 18 hours in advanced psychological statistics.

I have a degree in elementary education from Texas Wesleyan University, as well as a grade 1 - 8 Texas teaching certificate. I have more than 10 years of public school teaching experience, a master's degree in gifted education, and I am completing my dissertation for my PhD in educational psychology.
I have completed coursework for a PhD in cognition and instruction. I have done research in the fields of problem solving and the testing effect, and have extensive knowledge of learning and memory. I use my knowledge of human memory research to help students improve their learning by teaching them specific memory techniques, increasing their processing speed, and making the most efficient use of their study time by providing topic-specific learning strategies.
I have completed all coursework for a PhD in educational psychology, which requires advanced coursework in learning, memory, attention, instructional practices, and special needs. I have past teaching experience with gifted students who have learning disabilities such as ADHD and dyslexia. I also raised two children who were both diagnosed with ADHD, so I understand the challenges of parenting these students.
