LeMoyne College (Biology)
I am a graduate of Le Moyne College (Syracuse, NY) where I majored in biology and minored in chemistry and philosophy. At Le Moyne College I tutored in the Academic Support Center and conducted one on one tutoring sessions in math and the natural sciences. In the years following my graduation I tutored for Le Moyne College's Liberty Partnership Program and Science and Technology Entry Program. These programs brought tutors into Syracuse City High Schools during the school day and provided tutoring for all subjects, SAT prep, and college counseling. I also had the opportunity to work with EOP students at Morrisville State College, also in NY, where I tutored math and taught a mini lecture series on the natural and social sciences. In the Spring of 2012 I taught Basic Chemistry Lab at Morrisville State College. My experiences in both teaching and tutoring situations have given me a unique perspective on the learning process. During the summer of 2012 I relocated to Dayton, OH and I continued to tutor students in math and chemistry.
Recently I relocated to Bellevue, WA and I am looking for opportunities to help students achieve their academic goals.

We have used Wyzant for numerous years with our two daughters in different parts of the country and Deanna is one of the most organized, professional tutors we have ever had. We have logged thousands of hours of tutoring time with Wyzant and can tell anyone, that Deanna is well worth the money spent. She is amazing!
Excellent first lesson for my daughter today. She felt she grasped things that she's struggled to understand in class. We intend to move forward with Deanna. My daughter felt it was a valuable hour well spent.
When I was in college I completed two botany classes, as well as completing four semesters of independent research in the field of botany. Two of my research projects were concerned with the effects of applied growth hormones and light patterns on the growth of plants. My Departmental Honors Thesis was focused on field identification of plants/trees and assessing their health. For both classes, as well as my independent research, I received "A"s. I was granted Departmental Honors after I defended my thesis to my committee.
I have learned many strategies to help students develop good study skills. Through my employment at Le Moyne College, as a high school tutor, I taught students how to better manage their time. I also taught students how to organize course material and study tips that helped students succeed, even when they were overwhelmed by a subject.
