Sally Clark

Hello, Warhawks! My name is Sally Clark, and I am a former math professor, with 25+ years of teaching experience. My very first job, as an undergraduate at AUM, was tutoring in the Learning Center! It was such a positive experience, it led me to become a teacher. I earned a Master’s from UNC-Chapel Hill and a Ph.D. from Auburn University, and have taught at a number of colleges and universities, primarily in the Southeast. I love bringing math to life, especially through use of color, diagrams, humor, practical connections to other disciplines, and examples from life or imagination. My other loves are art and writing, which strongly influence how I teach. My hobbies include drawing, reading / writing fiction and poetry, watching science documentaries, traveling, and making well-intentioned attempts at gardening.

She tutors writing across all subjects and helps International students improve their English speaking, listening, and writing skills.
