About Denise


Bio

Each person learns differently. Reading from a text works great for some people. But in my experience, most students understand a subject better when they learn through using real examples, sketches, and visual materials. I have enjoyed helping students "get it" for over 20 years as a teacher, university faculty member, tutor, and director of a nonprofit school and learning center. Now I want to use that experience to help you succeed.

Each person learns differently. Reading from a text works great for some people. But in my experience, most students understand a subject better when they learn through using real examples, sketches, and visual materials. I have enjoyed helping students "get it" for over 20 years as a teacher, university faculty member, tutor, and director of a nonprofit school and learning center. Now I want to use that experience to help you succeed.

I majored in science as an undergrad, and always loved science and math. I enjoy helping students realize that, with the right approach, they can (at least) 'get through' finite math, calculus, or physics even if it's the last class they will take in that area. I'll share hints and tips so your work - whether it's doing a math example, editing a research paper, or getting ready to take the Praxis, TEAS, Hesi, ACT, ASVAB or other test - makes sense to you.

My doctorate in education focused on how people can learn best using books, materials, and 'stuff' (I ran the education departments at zoos and museums). I have an extensive background helping students with dyslexia and other learning challenges realize their potential. I've been told that my patience and a sense of humor make learning more fun too!

Need a math tutor? I can help students see the patterns in Finite Math, Algebra, Precalc, and Calculus that make it easier to complete an assignment or take a test. The steps that we go through make sense. You can learn this stuff even if you have not taken a math class in years!

Science was always one of my favorite subjects -- As a kid, I was always taking things apart or looking at something under the microscope. Too many students get stuck in all the vocabulary and miss how topics connect. That's a lousy way to learn, I can help you work through problems so they make sense on your homework or when it's time for the next exam!

Don't struggle -- please contact me to see how I can work with you to get the most out of your classes or get a better score on that important entranc

SAT Math,

SAT Math

Being successful on the SAT requires a mix of test-taking strategies and practice with the content. But you really especially need to be able to decide how to approach each problem the best way. Along with teaching college, I have over 20 years of experience working with high school and college students at a learning center to develop math, reading, and writing skills. I am patient and work with my students to build on each person's strengths, while developing problem solving skills.

Finite Math,

Finite Math

I have successfully tutored Finite Math for students at IU and Ivy Tech for the past 7 years. There are several variations of the course, with most including set theory, probability, basic statistics, Markov transformations, matrices, and graphing core economic concepts. I have developed materials to teach each of these components.

Nursing

The world needs more good nurses! Let me help you reach your goal. I have the experience and education background (BS in Chem, Doctorate in Science Education & Physiology) to help you with your TEAS, Hesi, NLN Pax or other entrance exams. I can help you during your program with classes including Physiology, Chemistry, Physics, Math, Pathophysiology, Psychology and more. And when you are ready to prepare for you NCLEX, count me in as part of your team.

Anatomy

Experienced tutor for Anatomy & Physiology. I enjoy helping students see how the different systems in the body all work together and share many of the same "big ideas" like the many roles of proteins or maximizing surface area in the lungs and intestines.

Physiology

I have a doctorate in Science Education from Indiana University in Bloomington, with a minor concentration in physiology and biology. As a college instructor and Director of a Learning Center for the past 14 years, I have tutored Anatomy and Physiology, as well as a number of other math and science courses, to help students find success. I believe it is important to use visuals, examples, and models to help make the concepts easier to learn and remember.

Praxis,

Praxis

Preservice teachers are required to show their subject and pedagogy expertise. I have taught courses in Teacher Education at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, and served as the Assistant Director of the Student Teaching department where I supervised field experience students. My experience as a college instructor, as well as the lead administrator for a K-12 school, allows me to use real-life examples to help those preparing for the Praxis exams.

TEAS,

TEAS

The TEAS is an important test that requires candidates to demonstrate their proficiency in a range of disciplines, including several sciences, math, and language skills. I have a Doctorate from Indiana University with 7 years of experience as a college instructor and 14 as the Director of a tutoring Center. I have helped hundreds of premed and allied health undergraduate and graduate students study successfully for the TEAS and similar tests. I have a degree in chemistry, extensive physics coursework, and graduate minors in math, statistics, and in biology/physiology. This helps me demonstrate relevant connections. I teach for understanding and content connections, not just memorization.

amazing

She is the absolute best Tutor I have ever had. She has helped me in all ranges of science and math and explains things in a way my brain can understand. She helps you based on how she sees you understand content. I won’t ever use anyone else.
