Overall, Marie is an amazing tutor and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with SAT Math or any math topics!

My current science ACT score is low considering what reach colleges and Ivy leagues expect. In just a few sessions, Daniel's teaching methods have brought me up to speed in the Science portion. He is now planning to tutor me in Math. Daniel is gifted and his approach removes the fear barriers and clarifies concepts in testing. I highly recommend Daniel for college test preparation. But please, please as a student invest yourself and train generously.
