Teaching since:
1972

The one-word definition of Nathan is PERSISTENT. My life's experience is a testimony to the fact that I do not give up on myself or others once I pursue a mission or course of action. I overcame poverty and childhood injury to complete high school and college. While attending Hampton University, I joined the Tutorial Council whereby I assisted my fellow students in understanding math assignments. After earning my master's degree, I taught mathematics for six years at my alma mater. Later, I was employed by the US government as a computer systems analyst. My taskings included teaching computer applications to military personnel. Joining Peace Corps, I taught math in the junior and senior high schools in Liberia, West Africa. Most recently, I returned to Liberia as a professor of mathematics at Cuttington University. Through my unusual and varied teaching experience, I have developed empathic teaching techniques for realizing exactly where the student "is." From there I patiently guide the student to success in mathematics.
