About Dennis


Bio

I have taught math in both public and private high schools for over thirty years. I have taught all high school math subjects through precalculus and trigonometry. I have also worked as a math tutor for all those years. For 25 years I was a home instructor for the San Juan Unified School District in Sacramento, CA where I worked with high school students who could not attend school due to illness or injury.

I have taught math in both public and private high schools for over thirty years. I have taught all high school math subjects through precalculus and trigonometry. I have also worked as a math tutor for all those years. For 25 years I was a home instructor for the San Juan Unified School District in Sacramento, CA where I worked with high school students who could not attend school due to illness or injury.

Along with all the math teaching and tutoring I have also worked with students on test preparation for the following tests: SAT, ACT, GRE, SSAT, GMAT. I have presented workshops for elementary and middle school teachers on math instruction, particularly the use of mental arithmetic to build number sense, critical to success in all math throughout elementary, middle school and high school.

I believe my main attributes as a tutor are the ability to relate to students at any level and help them to grow in understanding and enjoyment of math. I present the material in a way that the student can understand and motivate them to improve through practice. My presentation is energetic and fun! For students before high school I emphasize learning number sense through the use of mental arithmetic training. I have created materials for practice and have helped students for many years improve their fundamental math skills and they enjoy it! For high school students, I can explain more complex math problems in a simple way that makes it easy for them to learn. To retain the math knowledge it is important to understand more and memorize less.

Please contact me to discuss your personal situation and learn how I can help you.
