About Denise


Bio

I am an experienced teacher and learning specialist. I enjoy working with students who need a little extra help to understand concepts that seemingly come easy to others. In fact, this is what I do all day at the school where I work. I am actually excited about math and science. My hope is to ignite that same excitement in my students, and moreover to build a level of confidence that allows each one to reach his or her potential. I am especially qualified to work with middle and high school...

I am an experienced teacher and learning specialist. I enjoy working with students who need a little extra help to understand concepts that seemingly come easy to others. In fact, this is what I do all day at the school where I work. I am actually excited about math and science. My hope is to ignite that same excitement in my students, and moreover to build a level of confidence that allows each one to reach his or her potential. I am especially qualified to work with middle and high school students. My daily experience working in a very competitive, college preparatory school has allowed me to hone my academic skills across the board. I can tutor all math courses (up to pre-calculus), all the sciences (but not APs), and analytic writing. I also do much SAT and ACT math tutoring. My experience with students having ADHD and other organizational deficits means I have much to offer in the way of study skills and strategies, planning, and other executive functions.
