About Deanne


Bio

Teaching is my passion and my life's work. For more than 20 years I've had the thrill of helping young people master difficult subjects from HS science and math to college-level organic and medicinal chemistry. Seventeen of those years were spent teaching science (chemistry, AP Chemistry, biology, oceanography, and forensic science) at Gilmour Academy. I am now tutoring full time in the subject I love - Organic Chemistry!

Teaching is my passion and my life's work. For more than 20 years I've had the thrill of helping young people master difficult subjects from HS science and math to college-level organic and medicinal chemistry. Seventeen of those years were spent teaching science (chemistry, AP Chemistry, biology, oceanography, and forensic science) at Gilmour Academy. I am now tutoring full time in the subject I love - Organic Chemistry!

Working with students one-on-one allows me to tailor my approach to the unique needs and interests of the student. My job is to guide, motivate, and encourage students as we build important skills leading to success now and throughout their lives. Ironically, my goal is for my students to no longer need my help.

I work hard to make our time together as effective and efficient as possible. It helps if students send me materials in advance so that I can look them over and prepare supplemental materials to be used in the lesson.

Organic chemistry is a very challenging course, so it is very common for students to seek help. Working with students from across the country has exposed me to many different O. Chem courses and teaching styles. I have several electronic textbooks each with strengths and weaknesses - so I can cull the best of all for my students.

I have a Ph.D. in organic chemistry, a master's in education, and a license to teach 7-12 life and physical science. I've taken 16 credit hours of college math - through differential equations - and have been teaching for the past 23 years. Background check - FBI and BCI - performed 8/16 and is available upon request.

very productive

Covered a lot of material in just one hour, and the use of white board was really helpful for going back and studying later.

Tutor responded:

I appreciate your feedback Deenah - thank you for taking the time to write!

Deanne was very thorough, and is an an exceptional organic chemistry tutor!!

Deanne and I reviewed my first organic chemistry exam and shared some helpful tips. We reviewed Lewis versus Bronsted-Lowry acid and bases, hybridization states, molecular geometry, resonance structures, isomers, nomenclature, Newman projections, IR spectra, functional groups, and chair conformations. I felt comfortable enough with Deanne to ask her to clarify certain points during our review, and she was very patient and understanding. She helped me redirect my focus to areas that need to be reinforced.

Thanks for the feedback Josh - you pick up on things very quickly and ask great questions. I look forward to our next session!

Great tutor

My son enjoys working with Deanne. She knows the material and explains it in a way that’s easy for him to understand.

Tutor responded:

Thank you Denise; I appreciate the feedback. Zack is a great kid who is able to verbalize his thought process making it easy to work with him.

Extremely intelligent, patient, and understanding

Looking at organic chemistry II, one would easily give up, like myself. I got to the point where I thought organic was an impossible course and that only the brainiacs would attain the level of success and understanding from this demanding course. Initially meeting with Deanne, I was extremely skeptical because I thought how could anyone make organic make sense to me. Nope, I was very much wrong. She, even better than my professor, made me actually begin to grasp beginning concepts that would turn into mastering of a concept. Long story short, she is great and I would highly recommend her!!

Samantha, 8 lessons with Deanne

Extremely knowledgeable and patient

Today was my first lesson and we reviewed some topics for my exam she was extremely knowledgable and helpful. I look forward to having sessions with her for the rest of my semester in organic chem

Knowledgeable tutor

Deanne worked with me on Organic chemistry. She was knowledgeable on every question and topic I brought to her and greatly aided me in understanding my class's coursework. A great tutor!

Griff, 31 lessons with Deanne
Tutor responded:

Griff, thank you for the kind words. I am enjoying working with you too!

Knowledgeable and patient

Extremely knowledgeable and patient, she actually knew way more than my professor and very punctual. Deanne went in detail in a short time with me but explained the material very well.

Thank you Nevice - I enjoyed working with you!

She is very knowledgeable and patient

Deanne helped me to fully understand and enjoy organic chemistry. She goes through problems step by step to help you fully understand how to answer the problem. She's a great tutor and you cannot go wrong by choosing her!

Taylor, 28 lessons with Deanne
Tutor responded:

Thank you Taylor, I appreciate the feedback. It was really great working with you. You are a serious student and a wonderful young man. I wish you all the best on your exam tomorrow, and in your future career as a physician - you will make a great one!

Very patient and enjoyable teacher

My first session with Deanne went fantastically! She was very patient with me when I couldn't quite understand the material, and helped me through it. She was very thorough and helped me learn a lot.
