About Denise

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.

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.

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring Algebra to students ranging from elementary to high school levels for two years now. They have improved their understanding to the concepts and processing; and, their grades are at goals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a certified bilingual teacher of the CPS. I taught elementary school and high school students. I also volunteer as a tutor for kids in two local non-profit organizations. My input is to be supportive to their efforts.

Prealgebra

I've been helping my students to understand and to meet goals in Mathematics on their own with great results.

Reading

I've been helping my students to improve their reading skills and better their interest in reading with great results. Most importantly, I help your child to gain confidence on reading.
