About Denise

I have taught Social Studies for over 23 years! I had a son who had learning disabilities, and really spent a lot of time finding ways to help him. Knowledge is something that is available at our finger tips with the internet. Education is learning how to analyze, communicate orally and written, time management, organization, and chunking! I am really good at teaching students how to write! It is really all about organization! You must organize your research, ideas, and thoughts into paragraphs. Once you have your ideas down on paper then the rest is easy! I have a master's degree in curriculum instruction technology. You can be yourself, and don't be embarrassed to ask for help! We all need a little extra hand sometimes....even me!

I think a good history teacher will show you the multiple perspectives of an event. For example, the Native Americans view the same battle as the American soldiers with different opinions and view points. Right! So a history student must analyze the situation from multiple view points and communicate their opinions of the event clearly! History should be a subject that allows you to make judgments and form opinions. You have the right to write about that as long as you use evidence to back up your thoughts! Primary Sources are important because you want to get the account from someone who was there!

I would like to meet in a public place such as a library! I am teaching during the day so I would need to schedule from 5:00 pm on. I go to church Sunday mornings!

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.

Religion

I have taught Bible at a Christian school for seven years. I have taken theology classes at Mid-America Nazarene College. I have also taught World History for at least 5 years, and world religions basic tenants were taught. I am well aware of how to teach Religion without teaching my opinion.

Social Studies

I have taught Social Studies for 23 years. I love to paint the big picture to give the student a better context of particular events. I know how to teach writing, and I have lots of resources at my finger tips. I am enthusiastic, and love to help others. I love to learn, and I have been told I am inspirational by many of my students. My master's degree is in Curriculum Instruction Technology, and can help students with projects that are dealing with technology.
