Hello,

My name is Dennis. In 2012 I left a successful business career in order to enter the field of education, my true passion. I have spent much time during my last years in the business world recruiting, mentoring, and tutoring the next generation of business leaders. The personal satisfaction that I received from this inspired me to become a tutor.I have been tutoring on a regular basis since, both in person and in a virtual classroom.

I have an MBA with a Finance concentration from the University of Connecticut. I have been certified as a substitute teacher in Arizona. I have a naturally affinity for numbers and am highly educated in most areas of math. I enjoy teaching math at the elementary level as well as business and finance related courses to college students. I have had considerable success teaching Microsoft office, most notably Excel.

Additionally, for the past 2 years I have tutored math on behalf of the AZ Dept of Ed to high school students who could not graduate because they were unable to pass the AIMS test. I am proud of the fact that every student that I tutored passed their AIMS re-test on the first try, a 100% success rate.

I am much more collaborative than prescriptive in my teaching style. I will work with the student not only to identify needs, but also to personalize the path to learning.

Learning, as with most things, is facilitated when it is enjoyable.
