10 Eclectic lessons
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.

I tend to be awkward with technical stuff, but Jay guided me with patience and good humour -- even when my questions were a bit quirky. I feel Jay's broad, eclectic interests and abilities in Art, music, and technology plus his generosity of spirit give him a unique advantage as a teacher. Being a teacher myself (in completely different fields) I can confidently say that Jay is top notch in what he offers.
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
