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

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

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.

Science

Anatomy,

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

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.

Special Needs

Dyslexia

Dyslexia

I personally have tested over 1400 students with dyslexia, prepared intervention plans, taught and tutored reading, spelling, writing, math, science, and study skills. I developed curriculum for our program and directed our learning center. I am a member of the International Dyslexia Association and have presented at state and national conferences.

Test Preparation

Accuplacer,

Accuplacer

During my 14 years as an independent School Director, I helped to prepare our high school seniors and recent graduates students for Accuplacer Testing. There are several different versions of the Accuplacer. Along with overall test preparation, I have used my graduate degree in math to specialize in teaching and tutoring the more challenging arithmetic, quantitative reasoning skills, algebra, and statistics content that can be asked during the math portions.
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.

Very detailed

She is just great! She’s been helping me and provides lots of examples throughout one hour! She explains all of the questions and answers all questions without hesitating.

Deljit, 6 lessons with Denise

Great tutor

She is very patient and explains thing very well for someone that has been out of school for a long time she makes me very comfortable. I am very happy I chose her as my tutor.

LeVar, 10 lessons with Denise

Great choice!

This was my first time working with Denise. I learned more from her in one hour than I’ve been able to learn from a book on my own. Her explanations and examples were clear and have already helped me retain the information as I continue studying on my own. Can’t wait for our next session!

Ashante, 2 lessons with Denise

Erudite And Patient

Denise is a well informed tutor. She is patient, eloquent, understanding and dedicated. Her skill and method made me interested in science. I can't wait to start Mathematics with her.

Best Tutor!!

Denise helped me to prepare for the ATI TEAS test and her lessons were great. I needed help, especially with math, but we went over all the areas that the test covers. She explained and showed me the easiest way to approach math problems. She sent me practice questions that were very helpful and we went over them together. When I had a question she was always ready to explain it over and over until I understood. Her knowledge about nursing entrace exams is incredible, and I am sure that with her help, any student can obtain amazing results. Thank you, Denise!

Margarita, 5 lessons with Denise

Knowledgeable, patient, compassionate & insightful/wise.

She has taught me how to think beyond the minutiae of a subject/topic to a much bigger picture while I’m study for a national exam. It's helped me see how things are tied together. Also has demonstrated how to tackle 'mundane' subjects/topics resulting in more motivation to stay the course . . . even when it gets really hard!
