To my prospective students and parents, I'm an educator with a few college degrees in science and health science. I enjoy tutoring children K-12. For the last five years, I've been a volunteer-tutor in community organizations. I am fluent in Portuguese and Cantonese, seconded by Spanish.

I'd like to share with you my goal as your tutor. I am attentive to your needs while working with you. I am resourceful, creative, and tireless to help you learn the objectives of your daily lessons and homework. I hope to foster your motivation to learn. My biggest accomplishment as a tutor was helping a child with ADHD to organize a given reading assignment. He maintained focused at the task. He also wanted to do more using the applied method which he liked. Learning is a self-fulfillment process. I wish for my student to feel it upon finishing their assignments.

Good Tutor!!

Ms. Denise C understand both the parent and students needs. This is my daughter first English lesson. She is 4th Grade. Ms. Denise can spot out her issues and help her correct right away. My daughter likes Ms. Denise. I believe that Ms. Denise can inspire to my child.

Knowledgeable, punctual and quick to connect!

Our 5 year old son was enrolled in Kindergarten and needed additional tutoring in math, reading and writing. We encountered Denise's profile on WyzAnt and were immediately impressed by her consistent punctuality and her ability to effortlessly connect with our son. Our son responded well to her use of learning games, her constant encouragement, bottomless patience, and eclectic teaching materials (ie hands-on activities, work-books, use of marker boards, etc.). She kept our son engaged and avoided boredom during the weekly, one hour lessons. Denise had no problems visiting us in our home to conduct the lessons. Most of all, we were amazed that our son looked forward to Denise's visits, and were excited to see rapid improvements in all the areas mentioned above. With Denise's help, our son's confidence in his school work has increased exponentially! If you are looking for an exceptional tutor, look no further, Denise certainly made a difference in our son's education, and we recommend her without reservations!

Helping my daughter focus!

Denise has been great with teaching my 4 year old how to read and write. She is also really teaching my daughter how to focus and concentrate. Denise has been wonderful at also teaching my daughter some simple math skills too. She is always on time and my daughter looks forward to seeing her every week!

Great tutor

Denise has tutored my daughter twice now and I can tell she has more confidence in the material they have worked on. I would recommend Denise, has patients with my daughter and will explain it to her in many different ways until she understands.

Great tutor that I have online

Denise has been very patient with me and provides several different methods of learning. I was initially skeptical of using online for a tutor but it hasn't been difficult at all. I highly recommend Denise as a tutor and you will have fun.
