My 9 y.o. is taking acting lessons online with Matt and he is AWESOME. Not everyone is gifted in both their craft AND the way they engage with kids, but Matt is, and my daughter already adores him. He is highly skilled, personable, creative in his approach, and fun. Highly recommended, Matt is a delight!

My background as a teaching-artist has provided the opportunity to work with numerous arts-education programs as a playwriting instructor and to develop a curriculum that can support various writing objectives. The focus of my online classes will introduce the importance of choosing a clear THEME, supported by a well structured PREMISE. Using skills and techniques borrowed from playwriting concepts, our ongoing classes will explore the importance of developing a clear narrative that communicates well-defined [character] objectives. These basic disciplines can be adapted to serve a range of writing needs: from essays to proposal presentations.

I feel lucky we found Dave! My son who is 11 yo was having a hard time with his other piano teacher. Dave is patient, friendly and encouraging. What I really love is that Dave notices where my son is having a problem and comes up with exercises to work on that issue!

Dave is a great teacher and has helped me for 2 years whenever I have a problem he takes time out of the lesson to help me on a specific instruction. He pushes me to do better but we still go at a place we’re I am comfortable.

I'm a Ph. D chemist trained in a prestigious US university and extensive experience in teaching and tutoring in high school sciences, freshman General Chemistry, sophomore Organic Chemistry, and advanced chemistry courses.

Through one-on-one and group tutoring, the subjects will be presented in a way that caught interest, clarified difficult topics and led student(s) through complex areas, and put knowledge into context so that its relevance was apparent.

As a chemistry educator, especially one who is tutoring at the high school and undergraduate levels, I will bring a lot of energy to my student(s). If I can't get excited about my subject, why should my student(s)? Another important element of my tutoring is encouraging reasoned thinking and rational problem solving, especially in developing logical arguments.

It was an honor to be part of her class because when I didn't understand something she came down to my level of understanding to help me understand what I did not understand. She's very caring, outgoing, amazing personality and she's a person that love to encourage people. I've never encounter such a loving teacher, meeting her triggers me to become a teacher myself."

"I hired Daniel to help my daughter prepare for an assessment test. They only had 2 months to prepare and many of the subjects were being introduced to her for the first time. He had his work cut out for him. But he did a phenomenal job. He methodically organized each subject and proceeded to cover it thoroughly before moving on to the next. He had the right balance of persistence and understanding to keep my daughter stay focused and, at the same time, build up her confidence. I'm happy to report that she ended up passing the exam and she credits him for this result."
