About Denise

Hi everyone, my name is Denise. I am currently a stay at home mom looking for a way I can get back to doing what I love, while still be able to spend the majority of the day taking care of my one year old.

My first exposure to teaching was after my sophomore year in college (1999). I started substituting for K-12 in the districts near my home. I started teaching full-time the year after I graduated from Kean University with my Master's in American Studies (2001). My first class was 2nd grade; from there I went on to teach 6th, 5th for two years and then I became a stay home mom for 5 years with my first son.

Once my son began kindergarten I started working at a new school teaching Language Arts to children in Pre-k and K. Some of my students parents had asked if I would tutor their children on the weekends so I became an independent tutor also.

After a few years there, I moved on to start substituting again in hopes I'd get my foot in the door to a new school district. I spent two years substituting there when I found out I was pregnant with my second son; he is currently 16 months old. I am back to being a stay home mom, but looking to spend a few hours here and there helping other students achieve until I can get myself back into a classroom someday.

My greatest strength is making learning fun. If it's not fun then learning is boring for everyone.

Over 10 years of experience working in a variety of classrooms of varying ages.

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 have my NJ teachers certificate in K-5. Additionally, I have over 10 years experience working in many classrooms. I was also an independent tutor via parents of previous students.

Social Studies

When I received my B.A. they allowed a major and a Minor. I only had to get certified in one. I never had to take a test in History but that was what my minor was in and I went on to get my Masters in American Studies Focus American History. I presented my Thesis on Women who served in the Vietnam War and the role they played. Again I never had to take a test to get certified in History though. The students I taught Social Studies was 6th grade.
