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.
I am a Full Professor of Applied Mathematics at Delaware State University. I held the position of Associate Professor from January 2004 until August 2011 at which time I was promoted to Professor. I held the position of Honors Program Director from July 2009 until January 2019.
Prior to coming to Delaware State University, I taught at the New Jersey Institute for Technology, the University of Maryland and Northwestern University.
In the summer of 2019, I worked as a visiting researcher at the Army Research Laboratory in Adelphi, Maryland. The research performed during this time is ongoing.
In the summer of 2016, I taught two sections of Calculus III in Changchun, China for Summer session I. It was an amazing experience.

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.
Dr. Dawn is fantastic! My daughter looks forward to her lesson each week!
My daughter Really loved Dr. Dawn's style of teaching. Looking forward to have more lessons with her.
