About Denfield

Hello everyone. I have taught students in Grades 2-5 over the past 11 years, and cherish the opportunities afforded me to engage students in the process of learning. Prior to teaching, I served in the Navy for 24 years being driven by honor, courage, and commitment. I bring those same values to the teaching profession. Since retiring from the Navy, I have achieved a Doctorate in Education and am committed to using my experiences and knowledge to help students succeed.

I believe that student success is directly linked to their hard work and persevering effort, while supported by teachers who understand the multiple challenges facing students and offer strategies to help alleviate those challenges. I understand that each student is unique and some may require assistance outside the classroom to help them achieve their fullest potential. I am committed to offering students in need of extra assistance, the support required to help them excel.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
