About Dennis

Hello there-

As far as education goes, my background is a blend of education mixed with reality. My college education is a combination of business and criminal justice, which led me to a career in law enforcement, and then a radical change to become a financial adviser and portfolio manager. (It's not as big a leap as you might think it is...)

Some students may not like this, but I believe in showing students their way simply by telling them what they need to know. The trouble is, that means I expect them to commit to actually learning material they need to know. For example, if you have a math test on your multiplication tables, don't expect me to read the tables to you. However, I WILL show you how to learn them.

I also believe that most everyone is smart deep down, and can learn very well if shown the material the right way. I've heard students say, "I'm bad at math" or "I don't get history", when what they really mean is "I don't feel I can do this well enough." My job is to fix that and to help a student succeed. All you need to do is WANT to succeed.

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.

Business

I have an MBA in Finance and Business Administration, and have worked in Finance for 13 years.

Public Speaking

In today's business world, skill is public speaking is critical. This does not mean that one has to deliver speeches like Martin Luther King; it means that one has to be capable of standing in front of a room and conveying an idea effectively.

My experience in public speaking began with competitive debate and speaking in high school, then moved on to training rookie police officers, and finally to delivering investment and business planning presentations to professional clients.

Training in public speaking focuses on developing the knowledge of what is actually going to happen when the student is asked to speak, so that the student can forget fear and just say what they have to say.
