This was the first lesson for my son. He was actually surprised and thought that it was a great first lesson. He said that Daniel reviewed the concepts with him which allowed him to solve the problems. He is motivated and is looking forward to his next lesson.

This was my first lesson with Daniel. It was very informational and fun. I am so glad Daniel has patience because he has a very long way to go with me. I am looking forward to several more lessons at least 18 months or so.

Awesome teacher!. He was patient with my son to explain a complicated part again and again. He has the resources to teach and is very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to obtain his assistance with Algebra 2. Respectful and humble.

I was not sure what to expect for my first online class, but I was surprise it was a great overall experience. I will recommend you to try online lessons if you have not done it before. You will enjoy the experience!

I had many doubts before getting tutor by Daniel. He gave me the confidence I need it to have to solve the problems on my own. You won't regret having him as your tutor.

Daniel is a great teacher, his explanations are clear and simple. I tried a couple of tutors before but no one managed to help me as good as Daniel did.

First time user on Take Lessons. He couldn't provide all the study material as first initiated and seldom sat in a quiet area to provide lessons so the lesson would be distracted by noises in his background. Dissatisfactory service. Highly disappointing.

My oldest has struggled for the first time in a math class this past year. At the beginning of the year I accepted he just didn't mesh with his teacher's style but as his grades continued to plummet and everything we tried at home wasn't working I finally reached out for a tutor. I wasn't sure how well Algebra 1 tutoring would work this far into the school year (Q4) . I'm not a stickler for grades, I just need to know my children understand the concepts they are supposed to be learning. And I needed someone who could really evaluate Tommy based on where he is now, what he's missed in the classroom and how to give him that solid foundation in Algebra 1 so he can be more successful next year as he goes into Geometry and eventually into Algebra 2. It was a very frustrating year for both Tommy and myself to have him struggle in it despite all the support he had from his step-dad and I and virtually none from his teacher. I was watching my son who every previous year LOVED math start to just hate it.

So I turned to Daniel M. as a bit of a last resort. I wasn't sure if he would be able to evaluate where Tommy was struggling, shore up the missed/misunderstood concepts and teach in such a way that Algebra made as much sense to Tommy as all his previous maths did.

I have to say, Tommy and I are both very impressed with Daniel after just the first lesson! Tommy came away excited with how easily it was for him to absorb the information Daniel laid out for him and how it's 100% a better fit for Tommy to understand the equations after just the one lesson! I wish I had the money to just hire Daniel for tutoring much more often, but thankfully he is so good at breaking down where the confusion lies on Tommy's end and explaining it in such an easy to comprehend way that I am fully confident Tommy will end this year on a high note in both his confidence and his grades. I can't wait to see where we go from here!
