About Denise


Bio

For the last 10 years I've worked as a classroom teacher. I've taught my students to become intelligent, tolerant, empathic, well-rounded citizens in a safe, fun and meaningful environment. I use humor, stories, and examples the students can relate to so they understand what they "don't get." The part of my classroom teaching I really enjoy is the one-on-one experience I can provide in a small group setting or when I tutor an individual.

For the last 10 years I've worked as a classroom teacher. I've taught my students to become intelligent, tolerant, empathic, well-rounded citizens in a safe, fun and meaningful environment. I use humor, stories, and examples the students can relate to so they understand what they "don't get." The part of my classroom teaching I really enjoy is the one-on-one experience I can provide in a small group setting or when I tutor an individual. I'd love to help you or your child love learning as much as I do when they see they can attain their goal, mostly on their own, with my guidance. When tutoring in a home setting, my approach is very similar. However, since the student is more comfortable, has less distractions and has my full attention, learning takes place on a much faster pace. This is a good thing creating happiness for everyone involved!

Grammar,

Grammar

Grammar is speaking and writing using the correct part of speech, correct verb tense, past, present or future, and additional words to complete a thought to express meaning. Phonics, reading, comprehension, and listening are ways I teach correct use of grammar. Many of my elementary school students are English Language Learners. However, even my English as their first language students still struggle with grammar. Teaching for 10 years has given me many resources and experience to help anyone improve their grammar skills.

Reading, writing and speaking are all essential to learning the English language properly. I teach using both phonics to read the words and whole language for comprehension.

In my 10 years as a classroom teacher, I've had to be organized and systematic to incorporate not only the curriculum but skills and qualities that will help my students be successful in life and in school. I attended college at night while working full time, then after having my daughter, I worked part-time and went to school full time. Having mastered study habits in high school helped me handle all the academic rigors but also maintain balance in my home and family life.
