I taught 3 years at Evergreen Christian school, teaching 2nd through 10th grade math and algebra, bible, reading, and art. I love children's outlook on life.

I graduated in 1998 with a BS in Elementary Education with a math minor. I have a teaching certification 1st through 8th grade by the state of Texas. I have taught 4 years in the public school system, teaching 4th through 8th grade math, 4th grade art, and 4th through 6th grade technology. I taught 3 years at Evergreen Christian school, teaching 2nd through 10th grade math and algebra, bible, reading, and art. I love children's outlook on life. I also taught in low socioeconomic schools so I understand some of the hardships of slower learning styles, problems with testing by the state and struggles with teachers and peers. I maintain my education through workshops given by the education center and I substitute in Texas public schools, specifically Loraine Elementary, Albany Elementary, and Uvalde Elementary.

Elementary (K-6th)

Texas Certification for first through eighth grade elementary with a math specialization. Taught 12 years, 4 years full time public (4th-8th grade Math, art, technology, 4 years private Christian School (all subjects taught, Reading, Math, Bible, Algebra, Science, Language Arts). When not teaching full time I have substituted for public school and done private tutoring. I have a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education and Math specialization. I have also maintained education at the Region 14 Center.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

My degree is in elementary math, all the way up to 8th grade. I have taught math in a public school for 4 years and in a private school for 4 years from 2nd grade to 12th. I substituted in the public school and have kept up with the majority of ways they teach, but I believe that if you have the foundation, then all problems can be solved.
Phonics,

Phonics

Phonics is a program that is developed by using sounds of letters to create words. By putting these sounds together or using them to stand on their own, a person can learn to read and spell words in our English language. I have used these and have been in workshops at Region 14, which helped me understand and work with phonics for students, in my college and since my BS degree in 1998.
Study Skills,

Study Skills

I graduated in 1998 with a BS in Elementary Education. Study Skill, I believe, is the most underdeveloped skill in education. The majority of students will not pass a test or grade level if they do not develop study habits that will help them to retain what they have to be prepared for in testing or other areas. Each student has to develop his/her own way to study but there are techniques that can help find which way is best for each person. I would like to be able to help initiate the concept of studying for those students that are struggling in this area. Either by helping to study on a regular basis or by simply showing different techniques to prepare them.

Bible Studies

I am a Christian and have taught three years at Evergreen Christian School, where I developed lesson plans and taught the class for 4th - 6th grade bible. I have claimed my salvation since asking Jesus to come into my heart since I was thirteen. I am an active member of a church here in Abilene and study the gospel on a regular basis.
Religion,

Religion

My belief system is the Bible and I have believed for 39 years. In my high school and college each, I took a class on Theology. I have taken many classes throughout my church life to help me understand the concept of Christianity and Religion. I also taught the Bible at Evergreen Christian School for two years. I have a relationship with my God and feel I could adequately teach this subject if someone needed help studying it.

Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I took algebra in college and I had a very wonderful teacher who understood the concept of the returning student and how not understanding or having learning difficulties made it extremely hard to pass this subject. He was patient, went step by step and repeated a lot, but it worked. It made me stronger and like the subject so much more. That is what I want for anyone I tutor in the area of algebra.

Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

When a student is struggling from ADD/ADHD it is because of something that is different in his/her genetics not because he/she is choosing to be defiant. I have taught several children in my 16 years of education and understand that as a teacher you have to develop a different style of teaching for them. Separating, yelling or ignoring is not the approach but patience and a way that they can focus in shorter interval is the way that these children can best be taught. Also repetition as with any other child but to a bigger degree is what I feel is best.

Found a way for my child to learn and have fun at the same time!

Denise is always prompt and always has a smile on her face. My son loves their time together because he is learning while having fun. She is helping him with reading and after meeting with her he is enjoying reading more than he did before.
