Hi, my name is Dani. I tutor students in New York City and online for high school math, as well as for the SAT, ACT, SSAT, ISEE, and Algebra Regents exams. I attended both Duke University and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I graduated with a degree in Mathematics in 2013.

For the past year, I have worked full-time as a test prep tutor for a highly-regarded, boutique tutoring company in Southport, Connecticut. In the process, I have accumulated over one thousand hours of invaluable tutoring experience. Show me a SAT or ACT problem that you're having trouble with -- I bet I have seen it before! Of course, there is much more to tutoring than "knowing your stuff." I have also learned highly effective ways to convey the knowledge and skills necessary for success on these standardized tests.

The tutoring that I offer is highly personalized. I form a test-prep plan based on the student's individual strengths and weaknesses. Progress is monitored through regular homework assignments. I also give students practice tests on a semi-regular basis in order to objectively measure progress and to gauge where instruction should be focused. The material I use consists of official ACT and SAT tests and that have been administered nationwide in the past.

Tutoring is not only my job; it is a passion. I take great joy in helping my students. My work, as I see it, goes beyond preparing them for standardized tests. It involves helping them to develop skills that will serve them not only on their tests, but also in their current high school classes, their future college classes, and their eventual lives beyond academia.

I recommend that sessions last for 1.5 hours, as this time length allows for the most effective tutoring. I meet with students in mutually convenient locations (i.e., coffee shops and libraries) in mid- or downtown Manhattan. I also offer in-house tutoring in mid- and downtown Manhattan. Finally, for students who live outside of Manhattan, I offer tutoring via Skype.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I was a math major in college, and almost all of my classes required a thorough understanding of algebra 1 and 2.

Although it can seem daunting at first, I like to show students how algebra is actually a very neat subject. For example, did you know that the Rubik's cube can be studied as an algebraic object? And that using algebra, mathematicians have found that any Rubik's cube can be solved in 20 moves or less? And that is just one of many, many examples of how algebra underlies much of what is around us in day-to-day life.

Algebra 2

I was a math major in college, and almost all of my classes required a thorough understanding of Algebra 1 and 2.

I also have tutored both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 as a full-time tutor over the past year at a boutique educational firm in Southport, Connecticut.

SAT Math

I scored a 710 on the math section of the SAT. I also went on to be a math major in college, and enjoy teaching math and making it understandable.

SAT Reading

I scored a 780 on the Critical Reading section of the SAT, and have taught this section for several test prep companies.

SAT Writing

I scored a 790 on the writing section of the SAT. In college, I took enough writing-intensive philosophy classes to qualify for a philosophy minor at Duke University.

I really enjoy helping students improve their writing. Over the years friends have come to me to proofread and edit their papers, and I've seen their writing improve a lot in the process.

Great 1st Lesson — My son had his first lesson with Dani. It went great. He was efficient. We discussed our goals, he checked to see where my son was having problems and he started working from there. The two of them got along well. I was surprised how much they covered in an hour. Dani is well organized. He made recommendations on how we would effectively track and measure my son's progress. He followed up in a tim ...
