Bio

Hello, My name is Deresa and I have been teaching as an adjunct professor since 2007 at a local college. I enjoy watching my students grow throughout the semester. I like to assist my students with the tools that they need to learn. I do this by sharing valuable resources with them through websites, research pieces that I have found, and sharing some common sense methods that work.

Hello, My name is Deresa and I have been teaching as an adjunct professor since 2007 at a local college. I enjoy watching my students grow throughout the semester. I like to assist my students with the tools that they need to learn. I do this by sharing valuable resources with them through websites, research pieces that I have found, and sharing some common sense methods that work. I try to get to know my students and assess where they are at in the medical coding process. Once we have addressed that topic, I like to move on to Learning styles. I like to use something visual like a word document to conduct an assessment. I know some of my students are auditory and visual. I think it is important to get a sense of how each of my students learns. I also suggest something for those like to have that hands-on experience.

My background has been typically with adult college students but I do have experience working with those in high school. I have a Bachelor's degree in Human Resources and a Master's degree in Management. I also have an Associate's degree in Health Information Management. I am an RHIT and a CPC-I My focus for my own career has been in health care but I have found that most of the things that I have learned in business will transfer across most career fields.

I have tutored those that have difficulties with the subjects that I have taught by slowing down, engaging with the student, and sharing with the student exactly what is expected of them and by showing them a new approach to the material. Let's face it, some of us just need a little extra help every now and then. I understand that.

I would love to work with you. Feel free to contact me and schedule a session.

Deresa was very knowledgable and helpful

Deresa was great at asking questions so that she could figure out how much I knew, how much I had prepared and what I may still need to do. She was great. She followed up with some notes she thought would be helpful to me - and they were. I felt comfortable asking questions and seeking guidance from her.

BEST TUTOR EVER !!!

OK am not into writing any reviews on any website, but I had to write a review on Wyzant for my new favorite person Deresa. Deresa she is one of the best tutors I ever met so far, I only had three lessons with Deresa so far, but I learned so much from her it is unbelievable! She is very understanding; she is very thorough when she is teaching you. While teaching you Deresa also teaches you all the tricks in the book which will help you pass the CPC Exam. She is one of the best tutors and she knows her stuff. I learn so much in my 1 hr. session with Deresa I am embarrassed to say it. Deresa used every minute to help me between practicing and or explaining to me how to go about finding the answers. She’s the best!! and I really appreciate you and your time!! Thank you again, Deresa!! and for Everyone that is looking for a good tutor so you can pass the CPC exam Deresa is your person.

Knowledgeable, patient and pleasant.

My online session with Deresa was very informative. She showed a very pleasant disposition and a high level of professionalism. One of the attributes I appreciated from Deresa was that she was more than willing to go outside the box to help me accomplish my goals. By the end of the session I had a clearer idea of what I needed to move forward with my task. I highly recommend Deresa.
