Who Offers the Services?
Deborah Banks, Math Specialist
In my role as Math Specialist here at Student Support Services (TriO), I am here to help you be successful in your math classes. You may have found math to be difficult in the past, but this semester will be different! “People begin to become successful the minute they decide to be.” –Harvey Mackay. Schedule a tutoring session and begin your journey to success in math.
I graduated in 1998 from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and have been teaching or tutoring math ever since. I earned an MBA from Oklahoma Wesleyan University, located in Bartlesville. Originally a native of Michigan, I have lived in Oklahoma since 1979, and Oklahoma has become my “adopted” home state.
Linda Jordon, English Specialist
I am the English Specialist in Student Support Services, and, as you can probable guess from my title, I tutor writing. I can also help you solve logic puzzles and chemical equations, and, in a pinch, grill you for your biology exam. I have taught everything from International Composition to Languages of the World to Composition I and II to World Lit.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs. I spent four years studying Linguistic Anthropology as a Master’s student at the University of Oklahoma, and I received an Interdisciplinary Master’s in Native American Linguistics, Native American History, and Native American Literature. I have done Ph.D. coursework in Applied Linguistics and ESL/TESL at Oklahoma State University, and might even go back someday to finish the degree.
