About Dennis

I am a graduate from East Carolina University. I studied biology and I minored in math. I have great experience when it comes to people in general as I have worked in library for two years. I did a two month summer internship with the American Red Cross. I also worked at the biology department at East Carolina University as an office assistant. I tutored math during my leisure hours when I was at Fayetteville Technical Community College. I volunteered as an organic tutor for one and half years at East Carolina University (ECU) and I also tutored math part time during my leisure hours. At ECU I earned level 1 and level 2 certificates in tutoring. I love math and I love to teach it. I plan to go to medical school, which is why I majored in biology. One thing I love about tutoring is that it helps me impact the knowledge I have learned into others and it also put smiles on my face to see people learning from what I know. Communication is one of the major keys for a tutor to be successful.

Throughout my experience working as a tutor with students and supervisors. I have learned to listen to the needs of my tutees as often as possible. I pay close attention and I make direct eye contact to the student. I have learned to throw in explanations, suggestions or some kind of approval to whatever the student is saying. A mutual exchange of ideas is the most effective way to communicate with one another and break down barriers of misunderstanding when tutoring students.

As a tutor, I am also responsible for providing tutorial support and guidance to students throughout the section. Students want to do well in their classes therefore they have high expectations from me as a tutor to help manage their expectation for the course they are taking. Tutees expect to be treated with respect and they expect you to have empathy for them. More so, as a tutor I have to be careful with the comments I make by constructing and detailing it in a way that they will learn from the comments and improve their performance now and the future. As a tutor some of my responsibilities are to assist students to become independent and collaborative learners. I am also responsible to help students to comprehend and apply the material they are learning well. This makes me a very unique tutor. I encourage you to contact me for just one hour section and if you like the section we will continue from there. Students, you will not regret it. You will learn and be to use the knowledge you are going to gain from me in your future endeavors.
