I knew at a very young age that I was interested in learning mathematics. I found and read Algebra at the age of nine. I found the world of math endlessly fascinating, and I could never get enough new information!

Now as a professional educator for over twelve years, my educational and professional endeavors has led me to being employed with Southwest Community College, Lemoyen-Owen College (Upward Bound Trio Program), A to Z Tutoring, Sylvan Learning Center, Saturday’s Scholar as well as private, public and rural schools. I grew up in New Orleans, LA, graduated as valedictorian of my class in 1989 and was awarded a full tuition academic scholarship to Dillard University.

While math has always been my favorite academic subject, my true passion is to teach those who wish to learn it. I live to help others learn math! I understand the frustration and difficulty of math concepts, but I also know how to make it simple so that it “clicks.” I can see the exact moment when that “click” occurs, and this is incredibly rewarding for me and the student. I really enjoy my professional teaching career, but I have found nothing more rewarding than working one on one with students and witnessing those wonderful a-ha moments!
