About Dennette

Taking a student from wherever they are academically and getting them to where they need to be, around whatever disabilities or struggles they have, is my goal. I am patient and kind and enjoy my work, which makes all the difference in the presentation and acceptance of the process. I have over 25 years of experience from preschool to adults. Test prep in GED, PCAT, LSAT, SAT, ACT, Praxis, Regents Reading and Writing tests at the college level, to elementary students who need basic phonetics, reading strategies, and writing or writing, is my forte. I was an elementary teacher for many years, but presently I am teaching GED preparation classes in Reading, Science, Social Studies, Math and Writing. I have private tutoring students, and work for the local county school district in which I live in the Homeless Education program and the home-based program 4 days a week, and on the 5th day and Wednesday evenings, I work for Lanier Technical College in the GED Dept. in Gainesville. I am active in all I do and love being busy. I can work around my schedules a bit to fill in students from WyzAnt though.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

I am strong in English skills and have assisted in proctoring and administering this exam at Georgia Gwinnett College. I also taught it at the GED center were I worked for 3 years.

ACT Reading

I have had a recent student improve in the English areas of the ACT sections recently from a 16 to a 24 after just a few sessions.


I have worked with many students with ADD/ADHD, both diagnosed and undiagnosed, medicated and not medicated. It is about organization, short spans of learning with frequent changes of activity or subjects in order to keep them engaged. Finding their interests and applying it to whatever they must learn is a must. If they don't find it necessary, they lose interest or find no purpose in what they are doing or learning.


The ASVAB is very similar to the GED exam of general knowledge and I am very familiar with the basic material. I would be able to assist you in studying for this test with a current manual and/or book.

Bible Studies

I have a major in Bible (30 credit hours) from Free Will Baptist Bible College.

Career Development

I am a transition advisor in my GED center, advising students on colleges, careers, helping with applications to colleges, FAFSA information, Hope grant and Hope scholarship information. I have interest inventories that can be given to search interests, talents, and abilities with aptitude to determine career paths that will be suitable.

Common Core

I have been tutoring students in the Gwinnett County school system in private, through home-based, and through the homeless education program using the Common Core standards. I have been doing that for 2 years now.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught Kindergarten for 2 years, 2nd grade for two years, and 4th grade, and have tutored all grade levels.

Elementary Science

I have worked with all elementary ages, middle school, and GED students, and adults in all subject areas, including those of diverse backgrounds and academic challenges. Science and math are pretty easy for me. I can do algebra or geometry, but the higher level maths, like trig or calculus, I am not comfortable teaching. So, it depends on the needs of each student.


I have worked in an English writing lab, taught English to second language learners, and written curriculum specific to reading, writing, and language usage, grammar, and punctuation.
I have written a master's level thesis, and am currently writing a book that is a creative non fiction true crime.


I have taught ESL advanced level students through the Continuing Education Dept. at Gwinnett Technical College and Level 2 & 3 in the Adult Education Dept. there also. Plus, I taught advanced level ESL at Lanier Technical College's Office of Adult Education program in Cumming, GA.


I have started a GED center from the ground up and ran it for 3 years.I presently work at a local college GED center and love doing it. I have been teaching GED test preparation courses now for over 5 years.The new test poses different challenges and I am up to date on what you need to be successful on this exam.


I have taught handwriting in K-2nd grade in private school with the Abeka curriculum. I have 3-5 years experience.


I have worked in an English tutoring lab at the college level and have taught ESL and GED students/adults. I ran a GED center in Alpharetta for 3 years and have been working recently with Gwinnett County Public Schools tutoring in the homeless education program and love it.


I have taught basic Phonics when teaching reading in grades Kindergarten in a private advanced Abeka program and in Abeka 2nd grade program. I have also used various other phonics programs and techniques. I actually LOVE to teach a child or person to read.


I have proof-read many college papers as and English tutor for Georgia Perimeter College. I did this for over a year. I, also, have proof-read and edited many GED 5 paragraph essays for the GED exam and for college entrance essays.


I have taught the A Beka reading in private schools, many other programs in public schools, worked with adult readers, and love to read myself.


I have administered and proctored reading and writing tests. I teach the 5 paragraph essay needed in this test or the GED exam. Reading is mainly comprehension and knowing how to know exactly what the question is looking for and then locating the information in the reading, as well as, knowing basics, of main idea, sequence of events, characters, plots, settings, etc.

SAT Reading

I have proctored and even administered the SAT exam at Georgia Gwinnett College. I am qualified to teach Sat test preparation sessions. I am especially strong with the reading, writing, and language skills, but can assist with all categories.

SAT Writing

I love writing and have a simple and concise way to make it virtually painless. I have taught GED writing for the exam and never had a student fail the writing portion using this method. I am certified to teach SAT writing through Wyzant. Let me make this easy for you.


I can sew basic items, such as, pillows, curtains, hems, simple tops, pants, etc.

Study Skills

I can teach where to study, how to study, being organized with material, eliminating unnecessary material, skimming and scanning for important information. I'll explain having a plan of how long to study for each subject, how to take breaks, how to stay focused to complete major projects by planning ahead to do small increments of the work prior to deadline date, and then putting it all together in a clear and concise manner.


I have taught elementary gym and we did volleyball. I did play volleyball in high school on a team. I have a Master's degree and am very much into sports and know I can handle this. I took a PE course that was just volleyball in my undergraduate courses.


I have written poems, short articles, and now am writing a book to be published. I have a clear logical way of writing a 5 paragraph essay and from there it is just practice, editing, and me adding comments to better improve your work. I will make it as painless as possible for you.

Very good with kids — Dennette provided just what I needed, a basic sewing lesson for a teenager. She seemed to understand kids. She went slow enough but without talking down to my granddaughter. She covered all I had hoped for. She was very likable and a really nice person. My granddaughter said she enjoyed the lessons. After Christmas, if my granddaughter wants to continue with her sewing, I will definitely call Denn ...
