Stats for decision making
Understanding statistics
I currently teach in three different schools: At the University of St. Thomas, I teach a Quanitative Review Series to MBA candidates, which includes statistics for decision making and financial skills.  I also teach Geometry, AP Statistics, and Survey of Math at the Academy of Holy Angels, for which I have been very lucky to be a part of this community for 7 years.

At the University of Phoenix, I have taught two different levels of Research classes, which include examining hypotheses and answering the question "What is good research?" as well as "How does one produce a report that is clear, can be supported by statistics, and remains ethical?" I am scheduled to teach Ethics for Health Care, and have taught Statistics for Decision Making, as well as Managerial Decision Making. This should be an exciting year, where we will explore how we can make better choices in the areas of business, science, the arts, architecture, history, and religion.

I have been working extensively in the area of how people learn their best, and how they can improve how they acquire information and apply it in a variety of subject areas including: languages, literature, history, reading comprehension, and mathematics.
In my capacity as adjunct instructor at St. Thomas, for 14 years, I have been fortunate to teach in the areas of Statistics for Decision Making and Finance, for which I have been richly rewarded by the discussions and comaraderie which develop among students in various cohort groups.
What's your personality style?
Dr. Math.....
Teaching is a passion, and making a connection with students is one of my goals in life. One of my favorite quotes is "Too many people overvalue what they are not, and undervalue who they truly are."
I enjoy learning new ideas, including how we can learn from history, how people think, observing people change, and seeing them grow. I love listening to music, and always enjoy a good story.

One of my favorite sports is Table Tennis. In the Summer Olympics,  the U.S. is trying to compete successfully with the rest of the world! For more info on this exciting sport, visit
