About Denise

I am a licensed, experienced teacher with a Master’s Degree in Education. I have also tutored for 8+ years independently and with Club Z tutoring, working with adults and children.

During my years as a professional teacher, I have worked with adults and children who are visually impaired or require sensory learning. Making the world accessible for individuals has always been a personal endeavor. Teaching those skills and seeing students making new achievements has been my passion in life!

Along with teaching, I also privately tutor study skills, test preparation, writing, and reading with teens and adults. My learners range from those working to advance their careers to strengthening essential skills in English. Improving everyday vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, spelling, and reading comprehension are just some of the focal points learners may need support to strengthen. I am willing, regardless of the student’s English proficiency, to help prepare lessons that help get results.

With every learner, I collaboratively establish goals and create plans to help my students become active participants in their learning.



I hold a B.A. in English and Master's in Education. I have a great deal of experience tutoring English to English Language Learners and those looking for advancement or just beginning.

As a certified, experienced teacher, I understand how having solid set of study skills help to promote advancement in every learner.

I engage students by setting goals, organizing materials, maintaining daily assignments and formulating study methods to stay confident and prepared for the next challenge.

I currently work with the visually impaired or blind of all ages.

I am a patient person by nature and I have over 10 years working with infant to 22 year-old students who have special needs.

But no matter the need, I can create a learning environment to help the student grasp materials through various sensory methods or strategies.

I’m learner centered; flexible in availability and willing to assist anyone who is interested in advancing. Our lessons are sure to be fun and engaging and will support a stress free learning environment.

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.

Proofreading

My first Masters degree is in Publishing where editing and checking ones work is very crucial. Coupled with my experience as a special needs teacher and tutor, I have worked diligently to help others to gain a trained eye for correct grammar, punctuation, structure and more. I enjoy helping others find a method that works for them as they produce work that is clear and concise.

Reading

I am currently a teacher of students with special needs, and I primarily focus my attention to learners with reading deficits. I focus on reading comprehension, vocabulary and coping with the stress of reading a variety of texts. My experience as a private tutor for 10 years and as a seasoned teacher have helped me to gain a very personalized method and patience to help any learner.

Special Needs

I have been a teacher of the visually impaired for over three years, and a a teacher of students with special needs for over seven years. With both titles, I have worked with students from birth to 22-years of of age. I currently hold a Master's degree in education with a specialized certification for both special needs.

Study Skills

For over 10 years I have assisted students from 5-years-old to 35-years-old achieve their study goals. I have worked through private organizations, and Club Z tutoring. I focus on helping the student’s with their goals, organization and personal challenges while collaborating with the learner's respective teachers and other support staff. Utilizing sensory organization techniques and offering various learning methodology is my strong suit.

Writing

I have over eight years experience in tutoring learners of all ages in writing. I focus on utilizing the students strengths, to help them hone in on their areas of difficulty. My aim is to help students to produce a personalized basic English standard which is modeled from the Common Core Curriculum to communicate the written word .
