About Dennis

Living my entire life in a teaching capacity stems from growing up with a brother who has complex physical and cognitive challenges. Spending a considerable amount of time teaching him things he can benefit from, to help better enrich his life, has been extraordinary. As a student in junior high and high school I was always eager to help other classmates with difficulties in their studies. Throughout my 16 year career I taught people with developmental disabilities many different subject matters. For 8 years I was a certified instructor; teaching, training, certifying, and recertifying staff in CPR/AED and First Aid and Safety. The most gratifying element of tutoring is being a part of making a difference and helping others expand their knowledge.

I worked directly with professional psychiatric and psychology clinicians and people with psychological challenges for more than 15 years. I have recently completed my studies for the requirements of an associates degrees in both Human Services and Psychology. I continue to broaden my knowledge in the psychology field through current free professional resources.

I have done numerous self help studies to better my English skills. I have completed college level English 101 and English 102.

I began my computer knowledge at the start of the computer era, consistently updating my knowledge with the constant evolution of computer advancements. Throughout my career I was required to utilize computer based programs on a continuous basis. I have completed college level courses in Introduction to Personal Computers and Principles of Computer Security.

I am currently co guardian of my brother who has intricate physical and cognitive disabilities that I have been comprehensively involved throughout my life. I worked with Individuals with developmental disabilities and special needs for 16 years. For many years throughout my career, I was an assistant weightlifting coach and volunteer to people with special needs involved in the Special Olympics.

I began swimming at a very young age. I have had a swimming pool since age 6. I was on the swimming and diving team in high school. I swim regularly in pools, lakes and the ocean.

I am an enthusiastic and energetic individual. I have an earnest desire to help others advance in their personal, educational and professional lives. Learning helps to achieve your goals and dreams, I aspire to help students obtain the necessary knowledge and tools to accomplish them.
