Maurice is a blessing to my life and an answer to my prayers. If you are serious about learning Hebrew this man is the man to see. He is on time, good natured, and patient. His teaching method gives quick results.

I am in my second year of homeschooling and had prayed specifically for a male teacher to come alongside us and assist in our homeschooling adventure. Although my son, who is six, is not having any difficulties at the moment, homeschooling is still new to me and I was hoping I could find someone who would keep us accountable and help fill in any gaps in my son's schooling. We have found Maurice to be just what we needed. He is engaging and encouraging and has been helpful in sharing strategies and teaching techniques that foster comprehensive learning and not merely memorization.

My son has had tutors in the past, and they simply read with him, which is not what he needed. Maurice actually is teaching him in a way he can understand, and is very patient. My son is no longer on his IEP and is grade-level, thanks to Maurice.

My son was failing in statistics. I was not very happy because this is his first year in college. We discussed his options and I began to search for a tutor. Many came to my attention and yet one to me stood out, Ouray. Reading the reviews helped and purchasing one session then speaking with him gave me the assurance he could help. We made the correct decision. Ouray helped my son go from a failing grade to a B in statistics. Upon asking my son about Ouray's performance he said, he helped me to understand what I was doing thus giving me the confidence. I would recommend Ouray as a tutor in statistics. He definitely made the difference for my son. Thank you.

I was disappointed that the instructors page stated she would be able to meet in my home and she is not. Trang was flexible with her schedule for us to meet at her home, but that does not suit our needs at this time. Otherwise, she was kind and accommodating with her willingness to help teach.

About Daniel
Daniel B. is available for home, public, and online lessons worldwide to prepare for the GMAT, GRE, LSAT, SAT/ACT college entrance exams, and or otherwise study general math and persuasive writing topics.

Daniel has been helping students develop their skills and improve their test scores for almost 10 years. One student even improved from 40th to 80th percentile and got into his dream school of MIT. Another student said his relationship with his significant other improved as he learned how to listen carefully and critically to what other people were saying before responding. Daniel teaches
students from high school, to college, to several years of professional experience. All students are guaranteed to improve their academic/career performance by at least 10% within 90 days or their money back.

Daniel was trained in standard teaching methods, but has since developed his own methods to make sure students are positively engaged in the content. Knowing is not enough, we must do. And it's a lot easier to do things that are fun and relevant than things that are boring and don't seem to matter! Daniel's goal as as an educator is specifically to help people realize their personal and professional goals.

Daniel attended Carnegie Mellon University, and holds an MS in Civil Engineering. He is constantly continuing his own education as a professional researcher working to improve our critical infrastructure systems. Daniel regularly writes complex reports for engineering, business, and public policy.

Another nice feature that you might enjoy from one-on-one sessions with Daniel is learning techniques to refine your own long-term professional vision for yourself. It's a lot easier to run through the obstacle course when you have a clear visions for your future self on the other side.

Lessons are scheduled to best fit to the student'€™s availability when possible.

Students receive complimentary goal-setting worksheets upon their first or second session. Daniel is a very patient instructor and understands that different students have different strengths and different obstacles to overcome. Everyone has a unique story, and everyone is highly capable to create their own future!
