Description

Class Experience

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 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.
Assignments will be given after each class to put in to practice concepts learned in each lesson. Assignments should take less than an hour and may need some assistance from parents or guardians. 
 5 files available upon enrollment
Learners will need a blank sheet of paper, a pencil, a calculator, and 1 die (either already on hand or printed from the file that will be sent). Optional (but highly suggested) is play money (either already on hand or printed from the file that will be sent).
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
During class, I will use Google Slides to present the information and will play a short video using YouTube. Each resource will only be used in screen-share.
