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.

Great Organized Tutor for Algebra II and Chemistry
We have used Wyzant for numerous years with our two daughters in different parts of the country and Deanna is one of the most organized, professional tutors we have ever had. We have logged thousands of hours of tutoring time with Wyzant and can tell anyone that Deanna is well worth the money spent. She is amazing!Annette, 118 lessons with Deanna

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.Amy, 2 lessons with Deanna

Excellent first lesson for my daughter today. She felt she grasped things that she's struggled to understand in class. We intend to move forward with Deanna. My daughter felt it was a valuable hour well spent.Maggie, 3 lessons with Deanna
