Math for Life and Work

with Vanessa Richards


If you don't use it, you lose it!  This is most notably true about math. Most of us read and write almost every day, but how many of us calculate percentages regularly enough to make it stick in our brains? 

Work with our math teacher to change your perspective on math, get rid of your negative feelings and anxiety, and get tutoring targeting your specific needs and goals. You can use technology and other learning resources to practice the skills you learn directly from your teacher and other learning resources.  You will learn how to study on your own and start habits to make you confident and successful in math and other subjects.  Learn free online tools and how to apply math in real life situations.  Vanessa Richards has 20 years of experience teaching all levels of math, and has been dubbed the “Math Therapist.”  

You will master concepts and computations in whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios and proportions, negative and positive numbers, powers and roots, order of operations, applying basic formulas, and/or intro statistics, algebra...all skills to help you reach your goals.  This is an in-person class with ongoing enrollment.

If you're interested in learning more about this offering, register here and we will call you to schedule a phone or in-person meeting with one of our advisors.

Vanessa loves working with adult learners. She is really easy to be around and makes people extremely comfortable; she even makes learning math and computers fun! She is committed to helping adults discover their strengths, build their confidence, and realize they can accomplish their goals. In her free time, she loves to travel and explore the outdoors. Vanessa teaches math, science, technology, and provides college and career advising.
