Our 5 year old son was enrolled in Kindergarten and needed additional tutoring in math, reading and writing. We encountered Denise's profile on WyzAnt and were immediately impressed by her consistent punctuality and her ability to effortlessly connect with our son. Our son responded well to her use of learning games, her constant encouragement, bottomless patience, and eclectic teaching materials (ie hands-on activities, work-books, use of marker boards, etc.). She kept our son engaged and avoided boredom during the weekly, one hour lessons. Denise had no problems visiting us in our home to conduct the lessons. Most of all, we were amazed that our son looked forward to Denise's visits, and were excited to see rapid improvements in all the areas mentioned above. With Denise's help, our son's confidence in his school work has increased exponentially! If you are looking for an exceptional tutor, look no further, Denise certainly made a difference in our son's education, and we recommend her without reservations!

Denise has been great with teaching my 4 year old how to read and write. She is also really teaching my daughter how to focus and concentrate. Denise has been wonderful at also teaching my daughter some simple math skills too. She is always on time and my daughter looks forward to seeing her every week!
- Michelle S. from Clarendon Hills, IL
Denise has tutored my daughter twice now and I can tell she has more confidence in the material they have worked on. I would recommend Denise, has patients with my daughter and will explain it to her in many different ways until she understands.

Denise is incredibly accommodating to the needs of my 6 year old son and from how he "clicked" with her she know how to engage kids to make learning fun!
- Theresa S. from Chicago, IL
Denise has been very patient with me and provides several different methods of learning. I was initially skeptical of using online for a tutor but it hasn't been difficult at all. I highly recommend Denise as a tutor and you will have fun.

This was our first tutoring session ever for our daughter who has been struggling with her Algebra 1 grade. Denise was on time and ready to dig into the material our daughter was learning without delay. She spent additional time beyond our scheduled session to help ensure the material was well understood before leaving. The icing on the cake was Denise texting us additional material later in the evening related to the material covered. Denise went above and beyond our expectations for our first session. Looking forward to working with her again next week. :)
- Bobbie and Steve L. from Chicago, IL
She identifies areas where my son needs help and explains it so that it makes sense to him. I would definitely recommend her!

Ms.Denise was amazing. I was not home but my son told me how happy he was and how he wished she was his school teacher. My mother said Ms. Denise was so helpful and tought him well. I'm very satisfied and can't wait to have more lessons for my son.

She's very good, my son likes how she teaches. She explained all the questions my son has and the communication is good.

Denise has already assisted my grand daughter by helping her prepare for her algebra lessons in class. This is just her second session with Denise and we are already seeing some improvement. We are prepared to continue with Denise as her tutor in math as well as other appropriate subjects.

My daughter said you did a great job of explaining how to get to the next step of a difficult math problem.

I am very pleased with how Denise works intensively with my son to help him to understand 8th grade math. She is flexible and my son enjoys the way she teaches him.

Ms. Denise was very patient and took her time with our energetic 5 year old. She made learning fun for him. He always enjoyed himself when she came around. We will most definitely be calling her for next summer. Thanks Ms. Denise!!

- Sabrina R. from Willow Springs, IL
A good teacher, involved and prepared I feel like I'm learning and hope to accomplish my goals. I feel that I will with her help.
- Patricia S. from Chicago, IL
Mrs. Denise is helping my 6 year old with her reading and math. Though they have only met for 2 lessons, I already see an improvement on the way my daughter deals with reading itself. Mrs. Denise helps her sound out all the syllables without my daughter feeling rushed. She is patient and goes over difficult words until my daughter is comfortable with them. Once they finish reading the story, Mrs. Denise goes back and reviews all the words she had difficulty with before. We could not have chosen a better tutor for our daughter. Thank you, Mrs. Denise.
