"Hello Sewing and Math Lovers! Here is a little about myself:

I graduated from Baldwin Wallace University with a B.S. Degree in Mathematics. I have also been teaching Sewing, Quilting and Embroidery/Digitizing for well over 20 years. Math and Sewing just seem to go together.

For Sewing Lessons, we can start with getting to know your machine, and then go on to sew a simple project of your choice. I will be using my cell phone on a small tripod so you can view my sewing machine stitching. So, you will be getting a very clear picture of the Lesson.

For Math Lessons, I use pictures and graphs, or examples pertaining to their own lives. For example, when teaching a student about "interest", I have used the example of them buying a car, and then building an excel spreadsheet with them for each month's payment, and balance....basically a simplified amortization schedule. Or, I would create 2 Car Buying equations as in Systems of equations. We would then find the intersection of the 2 equations, to see which Payment Plan they should select according to their needs as a Buyer. I have an awesome unit circle that explains trig in a nutshell, although I use the interactive Unit Circle that Desmos offers as well. I also love using proportions to solve many mathematical estimates in business and in everyday life.

*I taught Basic Math, Geometry, Algebra, Trig, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus to high school students.

*I tutored Basic Math online at TTM to 3rd - 8th graders.

*I taught Algebra 1 and 2 to high school students.

*I tutored college level students with InstaEDU.

I derive great satisfaction in helping young people to fulfill their dreams and find their voice. I have a sincere and patient style and can work with all types of personalities, especially teenagers. I have found that there is usually an underlying issue when a student fails, and through teamwork and communication, many of those students can be saved.

Feel free to contact me anytime to set up your first Lesson. Have a Happy Math Day!" less...
