Patient, understanding, and knows what she's doing
Deanna has been the only tutor so far that has understood every one of my homework questions from my statistics class. My book for this class is strange but Deanna knew how to do every problem and walked me through step by step multiple times. Previous tutors have gotten annoyed with how slow I am, (I am severely slow and mathematically challenged), but Deanna did not once get upset or annoyed no matter how many times I asked her to go over a process. T scores and hypothesis testing can be difficult concepts to grasp but Deanna has helped me better understand how to work through each type of problem and also explained why certain things are done. If you are looking for a kind, patient, and knowledgeable tutor especially if you struggle with math, I cannot recommend Deanna enough.

Intelligent and patient
Deanna taught me Algebra 2. She was very helpful and used great examples and teaching methods to help me understand my difficulties in algebra. Deanna is knowledgeable, patient, and made easy for me to prepare for my upcoming test.

Very knowledgeable and caring.
I needed help with a statistics class that I could not grasp. Deanna helped me ground myself and gave much-needed insight and clarity on concepts to better attain my goal. Deanna is very caring, personable, and was able to answer "off the cuff" to all of my inquiries. I highly recommend Deanna.

My daughter rarely laughs or smiles during math, but does so with Deanna.
I was sitting in the living room listening to my daughter having a good time as she was covering algebra with Deanna. I know how important it is for her to have a good connection with her teachers and Deanna has managed to make a connection very quickly.

Very knowledgeable tutor
Deanna helped me with my pre-calculus studying and was able to give me easier techniques to solve the problem! She worked very patiently and helped me with questions which I had trouble with in class.
