I am a certified teacher with 4 years experience teaching students having difficulty transitioning through the demands of moving from grade to grade through elementary and middle school. I love to see students demonstrate what they have learned in their natural setting. I know that all children can learn if we find the proper strategies and tools to teach them in the manner in which they learn best.
I have conducted tutoring programs for students at the high school, middle school and elementary school levels, some of which were volunteer programs and some that have been paid positions. I struggled in my early years of school and I have a high degree of empathy for struggling students. I am excited about the opportunity to continue this work.

I found Denny in WyzAnt. I am a professional and English is my second language. The fact that I am in a consulting position make critical the need to improve my English skills. I am very grateful to Denny to have pinpointed where I needed reinforcement.
Denny is very patient, knowledgeable, and generous. He spent a great amount of time preparing my classes and showing me where to find reference materials. In addition, Denny made me realize not only what I needed to learn, but also to improve my enunciation. I do not hesitate in recommending Denny as a tutor, not only for children, also for non-native adults.
Denny tutored my son over the summer for a retake of Language Arts that he had failed while in a different state. Denny was able to not only remediate the missed subject matter, but also helped my son to get organized in thoughts for writing, which was difficult for him; he now enjoys writing because he understands how to organize.
Denny's updates online allowed me to follow up on his progress without ever having to meet with him personally. It also helped in making sure my son followed through on areas covered and it kept his previous principal abreast of progress, which enabled my son to get promoted to high school within a short period. Denny was very flexible with scheduling as well and overall I had a wonderful experience using his tutoring services. I would recommend him to anyone seeking help for their child.
My son was falling behind grade level in reading and getting very discouraged with himself - feeling like he would never master reading and never be "as good as" his peers. We hired Denny over the summer and it made a world of difference. Denny is engaging and inventive in his lessons. He caters to the individual personality and needs of the student. He is able to motivate kids in a way that feels genuine to them. My son's reading level improved dramatically with Denny's help, but more importantly, my son developed a renewed sense of self-worth and is now willing to try new things with confidence, knowing that hard work is truly something to be admired. I credit Denny for helping my son see his own value.
We would have happily hired Denny to tutor for our family for the remainder of our school years if it had been possible. He would be a wonderful addition to any family's tutoring needs.
My daughter just started tutoring and already I can notice a change. I believe with Mr. D she can get the one on one that she needs.
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.
