About Dean

For over 12 years I have worked in education as a teacher's assistant, a tutor, and also as a sub.

During my 7 years at a Suburban Middle School I worked as a teacher's assistant teaching math, science, social studies study skills and test taking. I taught in class room settings, small groups and one-on-one sessions. Additionally my duties included working with students in elementary math, Pre-Algebra and Algebra I, science concepts, history and social studies, note taking, and providing extra help when needed.

I tutored students for over 6 years for the school district and over 8 year independently in math, science, social studies, note taking and study skills. I am available for home visits, meeting at libraries or other public buildings.

For five years on Tuesday's and Thursday's I supervised an after school Homework Club where students received help in all subjects.

An important part of learning is to believe in your self, not be afraid to make a mistake and have effective study skills. These are traits that I work on with students to improve their learning skills.

I bring a positive attitude, a sense of humor, and the ability to make learning interesting.
