About Denise

I have been working with children now for over 10 years in church and in schools to help them to learn. I just finished my master's in education, and I am currently working in the public school system. I have a passion to see children learn and was gifted with patience to help seem them get there. My first experience as a tutor was with a family member who had problems with comprehension in early childhood. This gave me the patience to work with children as well as adults.

I believe that all students have the ability to learn and time, patience and consistency are the keys to getting them there. Some students may require creative instructional methods and others a good dose of patience. Either way I make sure students are on the right track to achieving their goals. I am available on some weekdays and on weekends and charge reasonable rates.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently have master's in Education. I have worked with public school children from Pre-k through 5th for the last year and have worked in the past as a substitute teacher. I started working with children 14 years ago and I found that this was my calling. I believe that every child can learn even if it means engaging them through creative methods. I set expectations but take them through the process step by step for them to achieve those expectations. I have also been blessed with patience and I gladly extend it to all children because I ultimately want to see them succeed.
