I've been tutoring students in Algebra I for over 10 years, both privately and in a learning center. At first, I always identify strengths and areas which require remedial attention. From there, I utilize textbooks and worksheets to hone in on weaknesses and turn them into strengths. I leave no stone unturned, as Algebra I is the foundation for all future math courses encountered in high school.

Hi! My name is Dan, and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons to students from pre-K through college for over 15 years. I have loved seeing my students excel in all levels of math, reading comprehension, writing, and a variety of other subjects. Equally important has been

Dan is an exceptional tutor. He tutored my son in 10th grade American Literature English. Dan actually went out and bought the books my son was assigned and read along with him to prepare for their lessons. He also edited all my son's essays, taught him some writing tricks, and dramatically improved his writing. I can't recommend enough.
Leona
Daniel is a fantastic teacher. He is patient, explains the information really well, and makes sure to tailor each lesson to my strengths and weaknesses. He is also really good at explaining complex concepts in super easy-to-understand terms. If you are looking for an amazing tutor who will help you understand and learn quickly, while boosting confidence, then Daniel’s the best tutor out there.
Kim
Dan is an exceptional tutor. My daughter is studying to become a teacher, and she struggled with the math section of the Praxis exam, which tests an overview of high school math. Dan worked extraordinarily hard, tutoring her twice per week. He rented practice books from the library, developed his own materials, and broke everything down for my daughter in simple terms so that she could understand. He was very patient and he worked through every problem she encountered. I can't thank him enough. Because of Dan, my daughter passed the exam, and she is on her way to becoming a teacher.

Kelli is great with our son - he always looks forward to his lessons. She is a pleasure to work with.
KimberlyB
Awesome teacher for our child and then teen. Kelli also became a trusted adult friend and mentor. Our daughter had been frustrated by lessons before we found Kelli who helped our daughter explore music joyfully and with discipline and become a technically proficient musician who composes and performs with confidence. She also taught her singing and composition. Irene released her 3rd album of original songs at the age of 21!
Melissa
Kelli has been amazing with my quiet, shy teen. She connected with him immediately, pushes him just the right amount to keep him learning and growing as a musician, but never so much that she pushes him away. She is very gentle and kind and encouraging. I love that she always does a little freestyle with him at the end of every lesson and his learning is not exclusively from books. On top of being a great teacher, she is a lovely human.

"Colin is a fabulous teacher. He worked with my children as they prepared for their AP Calculus exam a few years back, and we enlisted his tutorage as my son prepared for his Calculus 3 exam this year.
Colin knows his material. He is patient and ensures the student is keeping pace with him as he explains the methodology. He takes the time necessary to ensure the student knows the material and is able to follow the explanations. As anyone who has studied math knows, you can't rush the process. Each step is a crucial foundation for the next.
Thank you Colin!"

"I can't say enough about Aalok. His wealth of tutoring experience is certainly a major advantage, however his dedication and work ethic was what impressed us the most. What started out as just a few tutoring sessions for physics evolved into a wonderful relationship, guiding my son through his SATs and ACTs. Unlike many tutors' rigid availability schedules, Aalok went out of his way to work with my son's demanding high school schedule. He established a sincere rapport with my son and continues to touch base with him even now that he's at college. I am happy to recommend Aalok -- he is an exceptional young man and an excellent tutor."

"Arlys was absolutely wonderful. Not only did she help with with speech delivery, tone, speed, pitch, etc but she took time out to get to know me personally to get an idea of my personal goals as a public speaker.

She took my information and helped me formulate a plan according to my needs. She took my old presentation and helped me to change it to make it far more powerful and compelling. My presentation went from mediocre at best, to a solid well accepted presentation. In fact, when my presentation was done, I had two separate decision makers ask me to present with their companies."

"Knowing Akib has been a pleasure, not only as a teacher but as a person. As a student, the aim of our lessons was to increase my ability to present my work in Statistics. She also helped me to "warm up" with my Statistics, providing pleasant and interesting conversations. I consider that my objective has been achieved. Akib is truly committed to her work. She is able to convey enthusiasm for the subject, each class was an interesting time and not an obligation. I can not imagine more attentive and enthusiastic person to teach. It has been an excellent choice."
