Teaching high school is my second career. After working in industry for almost 20 years, I decided to change careers and help young people get as excited as I am over science. I have been teaching for 10 years now. I almost have enough credits for a second Masters degree!

Teaching high school is my second career. After working in industry for almost 20 years, I decided to change careers and help young people get as excited as I am over science. I have been teaching for 10 years now. I almost have enough credits for a second Masters degree!

My teaching experience includes working with students that have IEPs and learning disabilities all the way through to AP biology students. I love Biology and have taught that class ever year since starting teaching. I have also taught Comparative Anatomy, Geophysical Science (general chemistry/physics), Earth and Space Science, and Human Anatomy/Physiology. All high school level.

I am a firm believer in teaching students to the way they learn. I try to include oral, visual, and hands-on exercises so that the student can learn in the way they best understand.

Lastly, I have been to several conferences regarding the NJ End of Course Biology Competency Test. This standardized test was supposed be used to determine if a student has learned enough in Biology to graduate high school. I have proctored the test several times and my immediate supervisor was heavily involved in the test's make up. She traveled to Trenton frequently and updated her staff as necessary so that our students could excel on the test. This test is no longer administered in New Jersey. However, I wanted to note my experience with this kind of assessment as standardized tests are pretty much the same, no matter what the name is or who is administering it!

Biology

Biology

Biology is the study of life, and a core course in your high school curriculum. It focuses on basic to complex concepts which include: matter; energy and organization in living systems; diversity and biological evolution; reproduction and heredity; natural systems and interactions; and human interactions/impact. These concepts will be integrated with the content standards that highlight: Scientific Processes, Science and Society, Mathematical Applications, and the Nature/Process of Technology. High school biology classes are intended to prepare you for the NJBCT Biology Exam which is given in May of each school year. To date, this exam does not "count" - meaning students do not have to pass the test to graduate high school. It is the State of NJ's intention to make the test count eventually.

Biology 101

Denise met with my daughter twice so far and she is already understanding bio better. My daughter said that she has a better grasp on the lessons that were previously taught in school. Denise is prepared with lesson plans and always gives detailed reviews and suggestions for the next session. I would highly recommend.

Thank you Rob for the positive shout out and I look forward to next tutoring session. Kieron is a great kid!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Denise did a good job teaching biology to my son. He was having trouble understanding the concepts in depth and she got him to delve deeper into the material.

Robert, 2 lessons with Denise

Great tutor.

My son was very happy to work with Denise, she made him feel comfortable, went over several concepts and answered many of his questions in one hour. She helped him not only to understand concepts better but offered some tips to memorize the most important facts. He feels much more confident and capable of independent study.

Great tutor

Have now used Denise for several biology sessions for my teenage son. Her clarity and patience are impeccable. She instantly made my son feel at ease with her teaching style. We are very pleased.
