Daniel helped me reinstall core Algebra 2 concepts that I learned the past year within a couple of hours. He helped thoroughly explain concepts that I might have had trouble with, and tried to find different approaches to the problem, so that I could derive the answer. He truly is a caring tutor and person.

Daniel is a fantastic voice teacher and coach. My style of choice is mostly rock/blues, as I've been playing guitar forever, but only this year began to sing. He has taught me the correct way, recommended teaching material, and now that I'm recording, is helping me find my own voice. I think he could help anybody in most any other style too. He's the best.

I'm 25 and had never learned singing in my life, but wanted to surprise my girlfriend (a singer herself) as part of a proposal. Mr. G was an extremely experienced, knowledgeable, and supportive teacher who carefully considered my strengths and weaknesses to deliver a personalized training plan. In a few months after being a total beginner, I was ready and the proposal was extremely successful. I cannot thank him enough for this wonderful gift, and I continued lessons since because I enjoyed his exceptional teaching. 10/10 would recommend.

Steve did a great job, was thorough and patient. He knows the program well and is equally adept at explaining the concepts behind what he's doing. That's a difficult thing for a teacher and Steve did an excellent job of it. Highly recommend!
