About the Host, Denise
Since you’re thinking about staying with me, let me introduce myself! My name is Dee and I’ve been living in the Chicago Area all my life. And I live quite a happy life. Here’s a bit more about me.
I love the outdoors and I love to exercise. So daily you’ll find me riding the beautiful bike path near my house all over the area. If not biking, you can also often find me running my dogs on the local paths and parks.
--Why I Do AirBnB--
I do AirBnB hosting because it enriches my life. When people come together from all over the US and the world, long lasting friendships form. Also Chicago is one of the most beautiful American cities, and I love showing people things about this city and it’s surrounding suburbs that they would not otherwise see. And because of this I really do my best to create a fun, and warm environment for every student that stays.
Simply stated, I am an entrepreneur, and have been for 20+ years. During that time I have started and ran 4 businesses, including my current one, A+ master tutoring center. I am also an educator. I became interested in education over 7 years ago and became a teacher in American public schools until I decided to start my tutoring center.
And I do love running my tutoring center because I have been able to help countless children learn essential skills that prepare them to take charge of their lives when they leave school.
