Specialty area(s)

During the COVID-19 period, while classes are online, I will still be available to help you with any math questions that you may have.  You may email me directly at tbateman@uwlax.edu, or contact me through the Student Support Services website.  We can meet face-to-face through Microsoft Teams, I can create a video for you using the Educreations app, or we can come up with other ideas and option that work best for you.  My tutors will also be working during this time, so if you would like to talk to one of them, check out our website for how to do that.  Remember that we are all here to help you.

Brief biography

I am from New Glarus, a small town in Southern Wisconsin.  I have lived in the Onalaska/Holmen area for the last 23 years.  I am a first generation college student, and understand the struggles that go along with being one of the first to take on the challenge.

Math seems to be a topic that scares a lot of students.  The key is to stay ahead of the game.  Don't wait until you don't know what is going on in the class to ask for help.  Coming in for homework help, study tips, test prep, and overall guidance are the best way to do well in a class that you think you may struggle in.  Be proactive about the situation, not reactive.
