"Very Special Instructor"
Anita from North Hollywood, CA on 2/19/13
Danelle is not a tutor - she is a brilliant and creative Educator. She is working with my teenage son, who has rendered every previous tutor powerless to unlocking his potential. Danelle already has taught him how to minimize the distractions that habitually get in the way of his completing his work in a timely fashion. More important, the transformation in his attitude and willingness to work on his study skills is simply profound. He is less defensive and more proactive in managing his work load. Danelle is tough but gentle, serious but with a great sense of humor, and direct and focused but patient, never harsh. Her commitment to my son's success is such that she has created a strategy that requires ongoing follow up with each of my son's teachers - way beyond the scope of a tutor but a method designed to ensure success. My son is working harder than ever and, under Danelle, is seeing the fruits of his labor. I am so pleased with Danelle and recommend her with the highest degree of confidence.

My son has had French tutors occasionally in the past and always left the lesson more confused than before he started. With Danelle, my son told me immediately upon her leaving (we booked a two hour session) that she helped him immensely! Had we known Danelle earlier, we would have had her all year long. We are looking forward to our next lesson and hope to have her for the next school year when he takes French V. On a personal level, her personality is fabulous! I am thrilled we found her! I recommend her highly!!
"One of the Greatest!"

It was the week before finals, and an AP European History test that was worth 15% of my final grade was less than days away. Having been taught over 650 years of history, my mind happen to forget a thing or two. Danelle was so quick and eager to respond. Having informed me of her past of not only living, but taking the course, in FRANCE, I couldn't have gone wrong! She didn't teach me from notes or past quizzes; all I had to give her was a packet of dates and she lead my mind to, somehow, connect all events from Columbus 1492 to today's economic struggles. Having a tutor that lived in Europe, who understood the mindset of a struggling teenager, and who was so funny about it was perfect! The best part was that, also being experienced in English and other courses, she was able to tie in some ideas that would be useful for future classes and the AP exam. I had asked for her services on a Tuesday, and by Wednesday she was at my house ready to teach me what my teacher had been doing for two semesters. Overall a wonderful tutor, an experienced historian, an awesome woman. She will definitely be called next year for help with AP US History!
"Great tutor very engaging"

Danelle has been working with my granddaughter for a couple of months and has been a tremendous help to her. I would describe her tutoring method as very integrated and she brings many subjects together, making things like math and reading come to life!
She's extremely patient and kind in her teaching style, which is so important for children. Their sessions together have been very productive and my granddaughter looks forward to working with Danelle.

She really knows how to get you to learn quickly. I did not even realize how much I have learned so far until she had me speaking to her in French simulating different situations such as going to a restaurant.

Danelle worked with our daughter in preparation for a school monologue. Danelle immediately identified our daughter's strengths, weaknesses, and energy and tailored the lesson accordingly. Danelle has such a versatile background and provided advice in related areas such as acting, singing and other performing arts. She has an incredibly broad knowledge base! Furthermore, Danelle and our daughter instantly developed a bond and provided a learning environment with the perfect balance of discipline and fun. I would highly recommend enlisting her services. Danelle has so much wisdom to share!
"Great tutor!! "

"Great Tutor and Great Person!"
Irina from Burbank, CA on 1/17/13
I am happy I met Danelle yesterday at local Starbucks in Burbank. We had a nice lesson-conversation, which is what I really needed. She is a great tutor, great person, and she encouraged me so much. After our meeting I was feeling relaxed and more confident. If I need help in future, I will definitely contact her again.

As an ESL teacher, fluent in Spanish, and a lover of languages and etymology, I found Danelle a teacher who not only could refresh my French language skills, but also explain the reason behind French grammar and vocabulary. I like to dig into languages, but that's just me so I know Danelle can teach on the level in which I want to learn. She's also very patient and did a thorough analysis, through conversation, to determine the level at which I should review my French skills.
"Preparing for TOEFL"
Ftoon from Los Angeles, CA on 1/14/13
I applied for the TOEFL exam, so I needed a tutor to prepare for my exam. Today I took a lesson with Danelle H, for two hours, I understood what is the TOEFL about after she explained it to me. She was quite good, she taught me grammar, oral, and the written parts, how it's going to be in the TOEFL exam. She made me feel good about my English and that I'm going to do well in the exam, and I feel relaxed when she teaches me. I'm looking forward to take another lesson with her.
Danelle replied on 1/22/2013:
Hi Ftoon, thank you so much for the review. I really appreciate it. I enjoyed working with you also. Let me know when you want to set up the next lesson. All the best.
