About Deanna

Hello Students!

My name is Deanna and I am a passionate teacher. I specialize in ESL, but I have also taught English, public speaking, and communications. I have tutored ESL grades K-12 and also adults, but I prefer middle, high, and adults. Currently, I am a phone ESL teacher where I call South Koreans and teach them ESL over the phone and computer. I have taught public speaking and career strategies with a local technical college and Bible College and I am working on a fourth degree in Theology.

I am a graduate of Christopher Newport University and Regent University and hold an online ESL certification from American TESOL Institute. I like making learning fun and exciting and my students say that I am fun-loving and compassionate and that they have learned a lot under my teaching. I vary my teaching style to accommodate every student knowing each student is different and unique. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, Toastmasters, and playing with my niece.

My subjects include ESL, Bible, English, Grammar, and Public Speaking. I enjoy seeing the light bulb click in a student's head when he has finally mastered a difficult concept. What makes me a special teacher/tutor is that I don't just teach the subject material, but I also help students by counseling them and giving them advice in other areas that they need help in or just being a sounding board if they a listening ear. I teach to the "whole" student and make learning fun and enjoyable at the same time.

I encourage you to contact me if you want to find out more about my services and how I can assist you through Wyzant. I am available in the evenings Mon-Wed and Saturday evenings as well. I hope to hear from you soon.

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.

Bible Studies

I am currently about to graduate on October 30, 2016 as second in my class with a BA in Theology. I am in the ministry. I have taught at my church several Bible studies and am a leader at my church. While in undergraduate at Christopher Newport, I was president of the Baptist Student Union and Intervarsity Christian Fellowship. I also took several courses in Bible at CNU and Regent University. Regent University is a Christian school.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Masters in Education with TESOL certification. I have over 15 years of ESL experience in Chesapeake Public Schools, private tutoring, and online teaching.

Public Speaking

I have a BA in Communications from Christopher Newport University where I majored primarily in public speaking. I have taught public speaking at Calvary Bible College and Everest College and Atlantic Christian Shores School. I have been a member of Toastmasters International Public Speaking Club since 2001.
