Dennis Owrutsky

Dennis, who grew up in Baltimore, is a natural teacher: he has been tutoring since 8th grade. This experience pushed him intellectually and resulted in broad, diverse intellectual interests. Perhaps, as a result, Dennis had trouble deciding on a major when he started at Cornell University; he ended up graduating with three majors (history, government and philosophy) and a 3.99 GPA. He later attended Yale Law School, where he focused on business and corporate law, and completed coursework at the Yale School of Management. Dennis prides himself on his patience, his understanding that everyone learns differently, and his ability to explain complex topics in a variety of simple, easy-to-understand ways.
