About Dennis

I am Dennis. I have taught and tutored an array of students. My specialties include Grades 1-8 (all subjects). My experience include: teaching elementary, Learning Disabled, Educable Mentally Challenged, Title 1, Secondary Social Studies, Autistic Children. I have also tutored adults who wish to earn their GED and others who are going for varied licensures in South Carolina. I have a South Carolina teaching certificate with multiple endorsements. I am a Notary and have served on a town council and the Anderson County Library Board. I am familiar with several types of assessments, and am qualified to give and interpret assessments. I have been an active member of the South Carolina Parents and Advocacy (SCPA). Have developed hundreds of Individual Education Plans (IEPs). I am knowledgeable of the three ways that a parent can legally home school children and alternative ways for a person to receive a high school diploma. I am retired, thus I have a flexible schedule. I believe in the "whole child" approach to education. Most children have a learning style that is different from others, hence, teaching to their style may not be conducive to the regular classroom setting. I am Dennis.

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.
