I am currently a student at California State University, Long Beach majoring in Computer Science. Math has always been an interesting, comprehendible, and fascinating subject to me. Throughout my years in school I noticed my peers struggle with the subject, especially when I took AP Calculus. My friends were struggling and desperate to improve their grades. Given my ability to easily grasp the subject, they asked if I could help them and I accepted their request and genuinely wanted to help.
As I began my tutoring journey with my friends, what really inspired me was witnessing the moment any concept finally clicked for them. Witnessing those moments of relief for them was really satisfying. For this reason, I would like to help more students understand this subject.
In my experience, there are circumstances in which teachers tend to teach certain sections using different techniques and/or I may not remember a certain topic, therefore, I am willing to adapt and review the concepts in order to help the student in the most effective way possible.

I enjoy witnessing students have that moment of clarity. Math can be a very challenging subject, however, I enjoy the challenge and also find joy in helping others overcome the obstacles in their way.
I struggled a lot with AP Calculus, but with Denise’s help, I managed to understand and execute complex concepts and problems. Denise is a great listener, and she takes her time explaining in simpler terms for you to understand more easily.
Denise is a great Tutor! She’s very understanding. When you are confuse on problems, she goes through it with you thoroughly, so you can understand it better. And, even provides alternative ways on how you can solve it in a much easier way.
Definitely a great tutor. Denise was very patient and understanding with the people she tutored. Very nice and helpful at pinpointing areas and helping the student realize their problems/mistakes!
Best tutor I could ask for! She’s amazing, I had trouble with math and she explained it to me very clearly. Also best part is that she’s really patient and taught me at my pace!
