Thank you so much for your support. My daughter loves working with you. She looks forward to her SAT Prep sessions every week. You've taken her scores from 1240 to 1520, placing her in the 99th percentile. We can't thank you enough.
Hey Dan, I just got my scores back on the ACT. It's a 34 Composite, which is the 99th Percentile. Perfect 36 on the English and Reading Sections, and scored in the 97th and 98th Percentiles for Math and Science respectively. Thank you so much for all of your help!

I literally cried after opening my son's test scores. Then I called my husband who cried in a Board of Directors meeting. Thank you so much for guiding our son through this phase. You really were the ideal person to do it and he was so lucky to have you, as were we. You did such an amazing thing here. Not just for this test, but for our son as a person.
You are changing our son's life. His grades have gone from C's and D's to straight A's. He has never been this motivated, his vocabulary is maturing, his math skills are at an honors level. He's using the calendar you recommended and starting to stay organized and focused on his own initiative. Thank you for all the help!

Dan has been an amazing teacher. I don't know what I would have done without him. I'm so thankful we connected. I find our sessions incredibly helpful and studying for the CFA with him means so much to me and my career. This is literally changing my life. THANK YOU SO MUCH for everything!!!
Thank you for all the hard work you invested in our son. We appreciate your flexibility given all the challenges of 2020. It was a long year, but you took his scores from 1300 to 1480, and inspired him in ways beyond the test. Thank you for making every step worthwhile.

You never told me we would need Kleenex for your post-session emails! It is amazing to hear all this. Between his motivation and your encouragement, I'm optimistic. You're right - he is more capable than he realizes.
Dan was incredibly organized, focused, and his teaching approach was amazing. He encouraged my daughter embrace her strengths and trust her instincts. He inspired her to work harder, read more, and explore beyond her current knowledge and comfort zone. It's amazing how much was done in this time.
"This is one of the top five college admissions essays I have ever seen. You should be admitted to any school in the nation based on this personal statement alone. A truly evocative, moving, and gorgeously written narrative. It is a perfect essay.
I don't know exactly how to express it, but we were so fortunate to have Dan as my daughter's tutor. They really 'clicked', but I can't believe that anyone would not. Dan is one of the most intelligent and gracious people I've met, with very broad and deep knowledge of math and literature, not to mention a pedagogical gift.

I am so thrilled for my daughter and amazed at how this all happened. Thanks to your guidance, she has gone from an Executive Assistant with a degree in Design to a Junior Portfolio Manager at a Wall Street Hedge Fund. I am so sure that a big part of her success is your tireless commitment to your students, your good humor, support, and sociability.
Hedge Fund Portfolio Manager
Just got a GREAT call from his Science teacher. She was just checking in to say she was super happy with his work - "informative and very entertaining!" Also, his 8th Grade math teacher said he's doing proper Honors Level High School Algebra. Thank you thank you thank you!

Wow, such comprehensive notes and what a great report. Thank you!! Our son has enormous strengths and I'm so glad you see them. Academics come harder for him, but he really wants to succeed. This is an awesome beginning. I'm thrilled things are coming along so productively and positively.
Thank you so much for your comments. Once again, they are extremely helpful. I hope to continue thinking and learning about the political and philosophical aspects of Economics. Your guidance has furthered my passion for such topics, and I plan on reading the books you recommend. Thanks again for all your help. I really appreciate it.
Dan is the best tutor I have ever met in my life. He tutors all three of my children in subjects ranging from Chemistry and Calculus to Finance and Economics. It's so wonderful to hear them laugh while they are learning.
WOW!!! You are an amazing teacher!! Thank you tons!! Our son loves the Finance tutorials. When he finishes this summer, can I book sessions with you for myself??
