"My son began to struggle a bit with math starting in the 3rd grade. We hired several tutors with absolutely no results. Then I found Christopher Denne. His approach to math was much like a sport, learn a concept and build from there. Within two weeks, everything turned completely around! My son not only found math easy, but it quickly became one of his favorite subjects! I cannot imagine what the school year would have been without his help!
