About Deanna


Bio

My experiences have given me a unique perspective on the learning process. I believe that education can and should be individualized. When I work with students, I target their weaknesses and skill gaps. Often I provide extra resources to help students succeed because learning is a not a “one size fits all” situation; sometimes providing students a different perspective helps them to connect better with the concepts.

My experiences have given me a unique perspective on the learning process. I believe that education can and should be individualized. When I work with students, I target their weaknesses and skill gaps. Often I provide extra resources to help students succeed because learning is a not a “one size fits all” situation; sometimes providing students a different perspective helps them to connect better with the concepts. Also, I guide students to good study skills and habits that are suited to their learning style. My goal for all of my students is that they become independent learners.

For over 10 years I have been working with students to achieve their academic goals. I started tutoring when I was in high school, helping my classmates. At Le Moyne College, where I earned my BS in biology with minors in chemistry and philosophy, I had the opportunity to work in the academic support center tutoring other college students in biology, statistics, and chemistry. After graduation I worked with at-risk and disadvantaged youth in the Syracuse City Schools: I provided tutoring for all subjects, SAT prep, and college counseling. I also worked at Morrisville State College teaching Basic Chemistry Lab and tutoring math, science, and study skills.

Science

Botany,

Botany

When I was in college I completed two botany classes, as well as completing four semesters of independent research in the field of botany. Two of my research projects were concerned with the effects of applied growth hormones and light patterns on the growth of plants. My Departmental Honors Thesis was focused on field identification of plants/trees and assessing their health. For both classes, as well as my independent research, I received "A"s. I was granted Departmental Honors after I defended my thesis to my committee.

Fantastic Tutor!

Deanna is unbelievably prepared, helpful and thoughtful. She does a great job with explaining class materials (Algebra and Geometry) as well as finding additional resources that are helpful for development and success. She is very kind and flexible and I have no doubt that she could help any student succeed.

Very detailed and informative on her technique on tutoring

Deanna is very patient and not only helps students with biology she also helps suggest proper study techniques. I like how she gives an information session prior to first lesson. This gives you an idea of what to expect.
