Hi! My name is Dennis and I am the founder of Upticktutor! I am a licensed educator in the state of Massachusetts. After years of teaching in both public and private-school settings, I became a tutor so I could better help students who are falling behind in various subjects. I have an extensive amount of experience helping ESL's (English-Language Learners) and students with various special needs! I am willing to do in-person or virtual lessons with any student at the elementary or middle school level. Price will vary depending on the length of the session or the distance traveled to meet with the student, but most classes will cost around 60$ an hour. The first introductory sessions will be at half-price so we can establish goals for the student. Once that is established I can begin to utilize my wealth of relevant resources and techniques to help your young-student succeed. Let me know if your student needs help in any academic subject, I look forward to working with you!

I strongly recommend working with Dennis, as I've had the pleasure of working with him for a few years in other positions. Throughout college we competed on a public speaking team and traveled around the US for various speech and debate tournaments. I had the opportunity to coach Dennis as an undergrad and saw how hard he worked. Dennis dedicates himself entirely to tasks, meets deadlines, accomplishes goals, and follows through. He is an excellent teacher! Dennis is friendly, compassionate, and relatable, and someone who will ensure success for your children and students. I would recommended him, and Upticktutors, again and again.
