Sandy DeSousa, Mathematics

Sandy is currently a mathematics lecturer at San Jose State University. She has taught for over seven years in the Evergreen schools as a substitute teacher.

  One of the greatest math teachers. Very entertaining and fun to be in class. This professor teaches with skill and is easy to understand. Shortcuts to a lot of math problems you will not find in the book.
