"Fantastic teacher with a passion for math and science!"

"Most irresponsible tutor!"

- George, Albany, CA on 1/3/14
Denise replied on 1/17/2014

I am not sure how our communication failed, as I did email George that I had a death in the family and would be gone for at least one week. I received one phone message, not several, and upon my return, I emailed him to set up another session with his daughter but never heard back from him (this was in October). On the day I was to leave for winter break (Dec. 17), I received a call from wyzant that George was checking on my well-being and upon my return from vacation (Jan. 7), I had a "Most irresponsible tutor!" review. I have many students that I have worked with for more than one academic year, and have never missed appointments unless for illness or other uncontrollable circumstances (death in family, once for traffic accident). I take pride in my work and value my student's time as much as I value my own.

Denise replied on 10/27/2011

Actually, I was quite horrified that Robin had not received my email about a family medical emergency that had me out of town. I accept full responsibility for the situation, as I learned earlier that there is a delay in the wyzant email system. I did not have Robin's phone number, so any communication was through the wyzant server. I should have had her contact number. I did offer to hold a skype session since I was not in town, but I completely understand her frustration with me. I did have a flat tire three weeks previously and she did not receive notice until later in the evening of the appointment. Again, I should have had her phone number available.
