About Denita


Bio

Hi! My name is Denita and I graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Environmental Science and a minor in Conservation Biology. I work in the environmental field but have always had a strong passion for education and working with students. I have been tutoring high school and college students for over 5 years at UCLA and through private tutoring companies.

Hi! My name is Denita and I graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Environmental Science and a minor in Conservation Biology. I work in the environmental field but have always had a strong passion for education and working with students. I have been tutoring high school and college students for over 5 years at UCLA and through private tutoring companies. In my time as a tutor, the main thing I've learned is to always cater each session to the needs of the individual student. Schools usually do not have the resources to personalize their lessons, which is why some students end up feeling lost and confused in their classes. But I strongly believe that every student can be successful if they are taught in ways that appeal to their abilities. I provide all of my students with creative, individualized lessons that allow them to learn at their own pace and study strategies that will help them reach their academic goals.

My tutoring experience includes 2 years working with the UCLA student-athletes in a variety of subjects including math, science, and writing. Since graduating, I have been tutoring high school students in AP Environmental Science, biology, chemistry, algebra, and geometry. I have also formally trained to tutor for the SAT and ACT in every subject and have taken both the AP and IB programs in high school.

I have evening and weekend availability for tutoring sessions and would love to work with all students. I live in Culver City but work in Torrance, so I am open to students in West and South LA. I am also very flexible in my teaching style and welcome suggestions from parents and students. Feel free to contact me any time with additional questions or if you would like to schedule a session. I look forward to helping you reach academic success!

Volleyball

I have played volleyball for over a decade including middle and high school teams, club volleyball in high school, and college club team at UCLA. I have been coaching for the past 3 years mainly through the US Youth Volleyball League. This is a national organization for all kids ages 7-16 which means I have experience with students of all ages and skill levels. My expertise is in teaching specific techniques on exactly how to move your body to control the ball. I would love to help any student aspiring to improve their volleyball skills.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

So great! Highly recommend. Her knowledge was just superb and she was able to translate difficult problems into understandable solutions. My son got an A on his test the following day.

Very smart and knowledgable

This is someone who really is passionate about her field of work and will show it in the way she teaches and helps with understanding the fundamentals of biology such as genetics, evolution etc.
