I don't want to clutter you with so many subjects that I CAN teach.
My main business is in the test prep world of the SAT and ACT. I help high school students increase their scores so they can get into their schools of choice and get top scholarship money, which saves their parents potentially thousands on the cost of college.
I've worked with one of the top sought after companies in NYC who would charge $400/50 minute session. I learned a lot from that experience and want to bring that to you at a much more affordable rate.
My scores are
(My scores helped me get into Duke University, earn a full tuition scholarship to Colgate U and a Full-Ride (Tuition and Room&Board + free laptop) to The College of New Jersey)
I've also received 800's on the Math IIc and Physics subject tests, and 11 perfect scores on Advanced Placement Exams, so I'm a test taking pro.
In addition to this, I integrate valuable life lessons rarely taught or even mentioned in primary school and college that help students become more successful and balanced people in the real world. My students continually come back to me and thank me for showing them these quick and simple tools in stress management and productivity.
I call it the Holistic Approach or Whole-Person Centered Tutoring.
Try me RISK-FREE, too! If the student doesn't learn anything or doesn't feel I'm a good fit, you don't have to pay me!
You can rest easy knowing I'm available by text, email, or phone to answer you or your child's questions that may arise while doing homework.
If you're interested in booking an ACT or SAT lesson with me, please let me know if your child has specific weaknesses you want addressed or if you're looking for a complete and comprehensive program. Once booked, I will call you to introduce myself and learn more about your specific situation and goals.
***Help Your Friends***
The SAT & ACT are not just for juniors! Parents of sophomores and even freshmen would be highly encouraged to learn more about the importance of these tests. My consultation will start you off on the right track and save you time, frustration, and possibly a lot of money.
I tutor locally in Rochester, NY but with Skype have been tutoring online for the past year without a hitch.
***Advantages of Online tutoring***
--- CONVENIENT. Hop on skype right before the appointment and you're ready to go. No need to worry about transportation, weather, or your personal appearances. Hop on a call in your comfortable jammies.
--- TIME-SAVER. You don't waste time commuting. That time could be used to study!
--- MORE AFFORDABLE. Tutoring in big cities can be expensive because much of the cost is paying for either the office space or for a person's higher standard of living. Since I tutor from home not in a major city and don't need to rent an office space, those savings are passed to you.

"Danh successfully tutored our daughter Katie for the ACT, raising her score from a 28 to a 32 (max 36)...Danh presented the material in a clear, concise fashion conveying both facts and testing techniques. His cheerful upbeat demeanor made the lessons enjoyable as well as instructional. We wholeheartedly endorse Danh !" - Sharon M, mother
thanks for looking!
Danh did a fabulous job with our daughter! Like many kids, she wasn't so excited about spending significant time prepping for standardized exams when there are so many other fun things for high schoolers to do. But Danh was flexible, efficient and fun (or as fun as someone could be on this stuff) in helping her achieve her objectives.
I should also note that Danh's focus is much broader and comprehensive than most, helping with skills that will be important long after the ACT or SAT is behind them.
Danh recently provided tutoring to my daughter in preparation for the ACT test. Not only is Danh a gifted teacher with a remarkable repertoire of techniques and experience, he is genuinely invested in her success. His organization and pacing kept her on track which boosted her motivation to do well and helped her gain confidence as the test date approached. Since working with Danh, my daughter's test score increased by an amazing 5 points! This is a tremendous increase, beyond my daughter's initial goal! I am highly recommending Danh to any parent who wants their child to have the absolute best college testing preparation.+ Read More
Danh is an organized, knowledgeable tutor. He motivated my son, gave him clear instruction, and taught him great test taking strategies. In a short time, my son increased his ACT score by five points. The small investment in tutoring pays off big dividends in scholarships!! Danh's help gave my son multiple college options!+ Read More
I have taken the ACT once and SAT three times, but I did not see too much of an increase in my scores, so I decided to try out tutoring to boost my scores for college. Luckily, I found Dahn, who has been very helpful! After talking to him for the first time I was convinced that his help would allow me to increase my scores. I really enjoy how he breaks things down to tackle topics that I am personally struggling with. He is also very flexible when it comes to scheduling, which is great for any student who is balancing school work or other extracurricular activities.+ Read More
Although I've just started taking lessons with Danh and I'm extremely impressed with how organized he is and how he took time to personalize a plan just for me to help increase my ACT and SAT scores. I have faith that if i follow his plan, I'll get the results I want.+ Read More
Awesome help on the ACT
I've been out of high school for 7 years and found myself needing to re-take the ACT for nursing school entrance. I did really well on the test in high school with the exception of the math section on which I scored lower than 20. I have a mild learning disability and tried really hard to practice on my own, but found that my score was still not improving. I decided to go with a tutor and wound up choosing Danh since he mainly focused on standardized tests and I liked the idea of doing sessions online. THANK GOODNESS is all I can say. He has seriously opened up my eyes to how the ACT actually works and how many ways there are to easily solve problems that otherwise look like gibberish. He is very good at breaking things down and is always willing to revisit concepts that I don't have a total grasp on yet. He is very nice, always on time, and very flexible with scheduling. I am very confident that my score will go up now that I have worked with Danh and would highly recommend him.
