I was referred to WyzAnt by my professor since I was placed in a situation where I had to take Latin not by choice but needed it to successfully graduate. At the time, I was a Senior in GMU and severely struggling in the course. I started meeting Denise in March where she tutored me in Latin 101. Foreign language is not a strong point for me in anyway whatsoever, but with the help of Denise by session 2, I was already starting to completely have a different outlook on the subject.
Denise was truly amazing and patient with me during each session we met. She accommodated my needs by being patient, respectful, and worked with me in a way that made me understand the material. When I enrolled in Latin 101, I knew I would need a tutor as I was completely lost in the course. The first exam we had I received a 95% and only got 3 questions wrong. I worked with her up until May until I completed the course successfully. If it wasn't for Denise, I would not only have not passed the course, but I wouldn't have graduated from GMU. She was an exceptional tutor and I recommend her to anyone!!
