Dolores is tirelessly helping students all around the US and the world overcome the fear of math.
Dolores Spencer has been teaching math since 1954 and although she retired in 1991 from the school system, she has been tutoring in an after-school program for 20 years.
She says that it has kept her in touch with the way they are teaching nowadays and she has been teaching non-stop since she retired.
In April 2020, she started offering virtual learning because she wants students to get over the fear of math.
