Teaching since:

I have been teaching mathematics at all levels since earning my Bachelor of Science Degree from Bucknell University in 1987. I am a lover of mathematics and I bring mathematics to life in a way which is understandable and enjoyable for you (or your child). I make mathematics applicable to everyday life and I utilize techniques that promote learning and skill development. I specialize in Algebra, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus, Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra and Numerical Analysis and my expertise extends into graduate level courses.

Dr. Dawn is amazing. She is everything you want in a tutor.
She helped my daughter study for an Honors Pre calculus exam. We started with a 45 minute session and now signing up with Dr. Dawn for year round tutoring.
