"Congratulations, you're an adult! You have your own job, your own home, and make your own rules! You have your life all figured out, but how will you handle when unexpected life events happen?" In this class, learners will be learning without knowing it! Learners will use their math and critical thinking skills while playing a game I created called "Adulting". They will play the easy version of the game while I direct them and use opportunities that come up as teaching moments about money...
Learners will develop important financial literacy skills that they can use throughout their entire life: Calculating money, determining needs vs. wants, achieving goals, having a savings account, and properly using credit.
From 2001 to 2003, I attended DePaul University in Chicago, IL. My major was Finance in the School of Commerce. The courses I completed include Business Calculus, Accounting, and Economics. From 2013 to 2015, I was employed as a Certified Pre-Purchase Housing Counselor. Below are some of the certifications I received during that time: - Closing the Financial Literacy Gap through Student Loan Counseling - Delivering Effective Financial Education - Financial Management: Building Competency in Housing Counseling - FreddieMac Credit Smart - Homebuyer Education Methods: Training The Trainer - Homeownership Counseling Certification: Principles, Practices and Techniques - Mortgage Lending Fundamentals for Homeownership Professionals - Mortgage Math Made Simple for Homeownership Professionals - National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling Code of Ethics and Conduct - Understanding Credit Reports and Credit ScoringUnderstanding Credit Reports and Credit Scoring - eHome America Homebuyer Education Course The training I received taught me to review credit reports and focus on areas that needed improvement. I was also taught how to teach others effective ways to utilize a Spending Plan to review income vs. expenses. Through the use of a Spending Plan, I taught clients how to take control of their finances by removing unnecessary expenses to pay off debt and save for an emergency fund, maintenance fund, and down payment on a house. From the year 2015 to the present, I have been an active licensed Real Estate Agent. I have held a license in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Texas. The courses I have to take to get licensed include finance, specifically how to calculate principal mortgage payments, interest, taxes, and insurance. Every 2 years, I must take continuing education classes to renew my license. In those continuing education classes, I have taken courses in finance.

Some learners need additional assistance from parents to calculate money.

I primarily offer Financial Literacy and Spanish classes, but I teach others as well! I'm passionate about each subject I teach and always want learners to not only learn, but have have fun or be engaged as they are learning something...
