I remember having trouble myself with some prealgebra and algebra concepts in the 8th grade. With a little after school help from my teacher, I was back on track and did well. In high school, most of my classmates had to start with high school level algebra as freshmen. I tested out and was able to go straight to geometry.

Later in life, I was teaching these same skills to young and older adults who were studying to earn their GED. The math section of the GED is where most do poorly and I'm proud to say that over 50 of my GED prep students received their Maryland State High School Diplomas!

"Daniel tutored my teenage son in Algebra and Geometry for over one year. During that time, my son's grades increased and he became more confident with Math, in general. His time with Daniel set him up for success in Algebra 2 this year (11th grade). Daniel was always on time, very polite and courteous with my son! Highly recommend his tutoring service."

"My child started working with Lisa a few years ago. We felt at that time his school was not able to provide sufficient curriculum and support both for reading and writing. Lisa is very skilled in gaining trust with us and has been really flexible in tailoring the work based on the needs and providing excellent teaching and coaching for my child. He has thrived over the past couple of years in reading comprehension, and has made significant strides in becoming a more confident writer. With Lisa's help, my child was able to attain great results in standardized tests. Thank you, Lisa."

He puts a lot of CARE, time and energy behind the scenes to make the session more efficient and productive .He really listens to you and works with you to make the most of the time spent working together.That means the world to a struggling learner that wants to move past this obstacle and continue on the path ahead .
He is able to see the big picture and to correctly discern what you really need to achieve academic success .I am so glad I found him on TL and will definitely choose him again for other subjects that he teaches should the need arise
