About Denina

I am a graduate of Grand Valley State University with a degree in English and History and a concentration in Secondary Education. After graduating, I spent a year as a full-time English, Math, and Writing tutor. I have worked for the last 2.5 years at a school for students with severe and multiple disabilities in Rochester, NY. I am also in my second year of a Master's Program through Michigan State University in Special Education with specialization in Autism Spectrum Disorder.
My teaching and tutoring style is relationship oriented and holistic; I build relationships with my students and work to find the best teaching method for them as an individual. I believe that challenge and academic rigor, combined with a relaxed and safe environment, provide the optimal conditions for learning. Teaching is my passion and I work hard to ensure that I am doing everything in my power to help my students learn. In my free time, I like to read novels, watch TV, run with my dog, and cook. Above all, I love to teach and to learn.
