My experience:

I am a graduate of WGU (Western Governors University) with a BA in Education. I have experience in tutoring and teaching all grades and adults. I have 20+ years of experience tutoring K-12 students in all subjects, with a concentration in science and math. My experience also extends to tutoring reading, writing, grammar, art, and numerous vocational skills as well. I have worked with adults and students who need help obtaining their GED and preparing for the ASVAB.

When the opportunity arises, I try to integrate reading and writing into the subject area being tutored. I believe this gives the student strategies to improve self-sufficiency, increase understanding of curriculum, and build academic confidence.

I have had the opportunity to work both in the public school and private and also as an educational volunteer and mentor. I look forward to helping you with your academic needs.

The following is my philosophy of teaching and learning:

Teaching is helping learners acquire knowledge. Helping them to understand the context in which it is acquired, how it was acquired it, and what we do with it afterwards. Teaching is more than just what happens in the classroom; it is the effective, humane management of complex human interaction.

As a teacher and tutor I strive to create a personal learning environment for each student that is motivating, supportive, and engaging. In addition, I want to make it challenging and inspiring. It is my responsibility to guide and nurture students and help them take ownership of their learning with pride and without hesitation.

I believe a hands on approach, whenever possible, enables the student to create a link between theory and experience allowing them to become more involved in the learning process as well as increased efficacy in personal accomplishments. Hands on learning takes additional work on the teacher’s part, but the engagement with the student can create an excellent teacher-student relationship. In addition, hands-on learning is an exceptional

Math

Denise taught ratios and presented the material clearly. She was friendly and patient. My daughter left asking when her next session is. This is a big deal because she struggles in math.

Has been a great help for the ASVAB

Working on both math and reading comprehension throughout a 2-3 month span to prepare for the ASVAB, Denise has been a great support. She is patient with challenging scenarios. She also provided homework and worksheets to reinforce the material and help practice. ~Tim B
