About Deresa


Bio

Parents & Students,
Hello, My name is Deresa and I have been teaching as an adjunct since 2006 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.

Parents & Students,
Hello, My name is Deresa and I have been teaching as an adjunct since 2006 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 start with something funny with my students to help them with the stress of our first meeting. I even talk to them about stress and how it can be a factor. Once we have addressed that topic, I like to move on to Learning styles. I like to use something visual like a PowerPoint presentation or article/comic strip to review the topic before we get started. I know some of my students are visual. I then use a video on the subject that I am teaching that has audio so I can reach my auditory learners. 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 typical 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 every now and then. I understand that.

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

Precise, knowledgeable, quick

She was able to help me use my CPT book to code. She has lots of references in coding books, as well as files and notes that she'll use to help you. She seems to be used to students with more medical coding experience (test prep, for example), but even if you're a complete beginner in medical coding, she'll be able to help with with everything you need (terminology and procedure explanations).
