Tina Dewey began her teaching career in 1991 at a public high school in Michigan. Over the course of a thirty-year education career, she also taught students at a community college, an alternative school, and virtual online schools. She retired from teaching Algebra and Geometry at a public high school in 2018. Now, Tina enjoys being home to educate her son, play with grandchildren, and teach students online from all over the world.
Tina is a graduate from Western Michigan University in 1992, where she earned a degree in Mathematics, History, and Education. In 2005, she earned her Master’s Degree in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College in Detroit. Tina is certified to teach mathematics in the state of Michigan.
Tina’s approach to instruction can be summed up as follows: “I believe that students learn by doing. My class is a safe place to try, make mistakes, and try again. I incorporate plenty of opportunities for practice in my classes, and I provide meaningful individualized feedback for students. During class I encourage active participation from each student, and provide ways for shy students to participate in ways that make them feel comfortable. I will work to support your students as they become successful and confident in their mathematical skills.”
