About Deanne

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 love coaching one-on-one because it 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 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.

"When you break down your limits and barriers, you stop holding yourself back and do more than you thought possible." Let me help you identify the barriers and eliminate them. Contact me to learn more and schedule your first coaching session.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Science

With a PhD in organic chemistry, I have a very strong background in science. I can help with this aspect of the ACT exam.

Algebra 1

In college I studied math through differential equations, and use math continually in the practice of chemistry, including Algebra 1.

Biology

I am licensed in Ohio to teach biology for grades 7-12.

Chemistry

I have a Ph.D. in organic chemistry, more than 20 years teaching experience, and am licensed to teach chemistry for grades 7-12.

Geometry

Geometry was my favorite math course in HS and I had an excellent instructor.

Organic Chemistry

I have a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry.
