I began my coaching career tutoring and mentoring college level math and science. After getting my B.S. degree in Physics from the University of Southern California, I left tutoring to try my hand at banking and finance. Well, now I'm back to tutoring and happily so! I have tutored almost every math course from middle school on up. I love tutoring because it gives me a chance to help someone one on one. Every student I have is important to me and I always give my best effort. My focus is expert, patient, private, high quality, in-home coaching in mathematics at all levels for middle school on up to college level students. I show up prepared, on time, and ready to lead you through your lesson. I specialize in math chickens! We will always start at the level you feel most comfortable. Math doesn't have to be a mystery...so let's just get you past that dreaded class in a relaxed, no pressure, one on one atmosphere! I am local to the Sherman Oaks area and I do travel. If you are looking for an on-line, Skype, or email mentoring experience we can work that out as well.

I look forward to meeting and working with you! And, hey, check out my blog!


Cancellation Policy:
I recognize that sickness, family events or other unexpected occurrences may arise which make it difficult to keep your reserved time slot. With 12 hours advance notice I'm happy to reschedule your tutoring session at no additional cost. However, since it is nearly impossible for me to fill a tutoring session without advance warning, I do require 12 hours notice for cancellations in order to avoid a charge for the cancelled session. If you know you need to cancel a session, please contact me as soon as possible and I will work with you!

Awesome Tutor!!! — Deanna is so wonderful!!! My daughter and I couldn't be more pleased with Deanna!! She has amazing energy and we picked up on that from the first lesson. Pre-Calculus isn't easy. It can be quite frustrating and easy to want to give up on, but Deanna has brought back an eagerness to learn and conquer this subject. Thanks Deanna!!! ...
