#### Get to know Jolene and his family better

##### Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.

I am a 28 year old mother of three. Two of my children have autism and one is non-verbal at age 4. The other was non-verbal until last year, age 5. He is not 6 and can speak a little. My daughter is 7. I am in college for 17 credit hours while also studying for my PCAT exam. I am exhausted, but determined. I love to sing, although that doesn't help me much in my math courses. I am hoping to begin my doctorate in Pharmacy soon.

##### What are your greatest hopes for your student?

I want to understand the basic concepts of math and to be able to understand Calculus so I can maintain my GPA while I apply to Pharmacy Doctorate programs. I'd like to be able to help my kids when they get older, as well.

##### What are you most grateful for?

My beautiful children, my fiance and their physical health. My boys have special needs, but they are loving and they are healthy.

##### Please describe specifically what your student needs help with.

I am struggling in Calculus. I learn quickly, but I have not had a math class in 6 years. I do not remember the basics of simplification as well as other basic concepts, so I am struggling with functions, difference quotients and other Calculus topics. My current calculus topics include: functions, simplifying functions, difference quotients, limits, graphing, derivatives, sin and cos, g o f and f o g and similar items. I have a midterm in 5 days so I really need as much help as I can get to remember basic math rules involving simplification of functions, simplifying fractions, etc...I would like to have at least one session per day for the next 3-4 days if possible. 30-60 minutes per session. My homework is completed online via Cengage Learning website and the book is Calculus by James Stewart. The two chapters we have covered and I need help with are titled Chapter 1: Functions and Limits and Chapter 2: Derivatives. I am very clueless but if you teach very specifically step by step, I am an A student and I learn very fast. Our functions have fractions within fractions and square roots within fractions, etc

##### According to the student, how can we make the world a better place?

Treat people as if they have limitless potential and they may surprise you.

##### What is the student's favorite book?

Harry Potter Series

##### What does the student want to 'learn to be' when they grow up?
