About Theresa Card

I am a non-traditional student, returning to school to pursue a career change.  To what?   . . .   That is the question on everyone’s mind.  ; )

I have a bachelor’s degree in English Literature, and as an undergraduate (the first time) I loved humanities and was really not attracted to math or science.    I wrote my senior thesis on 19th Century Women Travel Writers, and that was my obsession for a few years.  But in my late 20′s I decided that I wanted to overcome my phobia of math, and I started taking classes . . .

Now I tutor math in the Success Center in Dundalk, and have found that I love math and science.    I really like tutoring math because I know exactly what it’s like to struggle with numbers.  I also know that it’s totally possible to enjoy math, even if it  seems intimidating at first.

Professionally, I’ve done a lot of different things.  I’m a  dog trainer.  I was a consultant to several large not-for-profit organizations, I was a party planner  (weddings, ugh!), I worked as a waitress and bartender, which I liked a lot (I love to talk!) and I drove a yellow cab in New York City for a few months.  That was fun, too.

Basically, I love to learn new things, meet new people and collect interesting stories.  I hate repetition.  Boredom is death.

I look forward to sharing my experiences, and getting to know you!
