I have always loved use math to solve problems. I have been able to use my math and problem solving skills for a long and rewarding career in software engineering. I am now helping my own kids learn these useful tools for understanding and solving simple and complex math problems. It is a real pleasure to see the "light bulb" go off when they finally realize how to understand and solve what was just recently an incomprehensible problem.

Patient and knowledgeable tutor

Danny did a great job of teaching concepts and explaining areas that were very complex. He was personable and encouraging! Highly recommended.

D'Anne, 1 lesson with Danny

I would highly recommend him for Algebra 2 tutoring.

Danny has been a huge help to my son on parabolas and general reviews. I've noticed a big difference after only 4 sessions. I would highly recommend him for Algebra 2 tutoring. Thanks!

Sonia, 10 lessons with Danny

Well Informed

Danny helped my son prep for his ACT test. He came very prepared and had a whole list of websites for online help that my son could use to continue to study at home. Very helpful!

Kerry, 2 lessons with Danny

Excellent Tutor

After three lessons with Danny, my daughter has made great improvement in her understanding of Algebra 2. Danny always responds promptly to my emails and is on time for every session. My daughter says he explains complicated problems clearly and breaks them down for her in a way she can understand. Her latest exam score was a 97%! By far the highest test score she's ever received. My only regret is that we didn't hire Danny sooner. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a tutor.

Kurt, 26 lessons with Danny

Great tutor!

My son was struggling with advanced algebra. Danny helped bring his grade up from an F to a B minus. Danny is highly skilled and professional. He is patient and explains things clearly.

Tami, 30 lessons with Danny

Understands more

My daughter thought it was a very good use of time and has a clearer understanding of what she is studying.

Nick, 26 lessons with Danny

Awesome tutor.

I took a few JAVA lessons with Mr. Danny D. and I have nothing but great things to say for Danny. His teaching style is very intriguing and he has been really patient with me (I am a newbie to programming). His knowledge and skills in JAVA are tremendous and I will definitely recommend him to everyone.

Faheem, 4 lessons with Danny

Knowledgeable and Interactive

Danny did a good job with my son who needed help with certain Java concepts that were sticking points for his class project. He made the most of the 2 hour session and definitely helped my son understand things better.

David, 1 lesson with Danny

Extremely flexible and insightful!

Danny was able to help me with very difficult programming problems. Even though the areas I needed help with are rarely seen anymore, he was able to go back and remaster these subjects and provide good insights. I highly recommend Danny to anyone struggling with programming issues.
