One of my students wrote, "Deanna has helped me throughout my entire student career. We have had a lot of talks about achieving my dreams to become a nurse. She is very easy to talk to and when I think things are totally impossible she helps me to see how things can work out. And things did work out: I graduated from the LPN program on May 11th of this year. I owe a large part of that to her for helping me along the way; what an awesome person she is! I believe anyone that has a problem with school or otherwise would benefit from talking to her. She helps you see that the impossible is possible."
Reading these kind words is humbling and inspiring. Tutoring is an enormous responsibility as well as an honor. Learning is a two-way street. I learn as much from listening to my students and helping them find their own paths to success as they gain from my experience and passion for teaching.
