Hello! My name is Daniel, but feel free to call me Danny. I'm a PhD student in English literature at Yale University.

My expertise is in reading, editing, writing, and college admissions. I have a special passion for language, and provide tutoring on all aspects of the written word, whether it involve reading comprehension, grammar, punctuation, critical thinking, or English literature. In the three years that I've been tutoring, one of the things I find most stimulating is the variety of students I get to work with. I tutor students from diverse educational backgrounds, helping them to achieve their particular goals. During tutoring sessions, I aim to bring the material to life and keep students engaged. It is my belief that students learn best when they are excited about the material they are working on.

I tutor ONLINE mainly, through forums like Skype, so don't worry if you're located far away.

I believe that every student is different and has a unique way of learning; therefore, I strive to teach students in the manner that suits them best. Tutoring sessions are laid-back yet focused. In them, students and I work to identify problems and possible solutions. Often times, it can even be a lot of fun.

Like many goal-oriented tutors, at the end of the day, I aim for results. I work closely with students to develop strategic plans to improve their writing and reading skills. Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any inquires, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to accomplish your academic goals!

Excellent

Daniel helped me understand what the CollegeBoard looks for in the new SAT Essay with very thorough analysis of a passage. Highly recommended.

Couldn't have been better!

Daniel is very patient and knowledgeable about what he teaches. In a short hour I learned a lot more than I expected. Can't wait to continue our classes and see the final score I get on the GRE!

Great Experience

I contacted Daniel to have him proofread my daughter's college essay. Daniel quickly responded to my email and within hours had reviewed and revised her essay. Overall my experience with Daniel was excellent and I would definitely use him again in the future.

Great Essay Writing Tutor

I chose Danny as my son's essay writing tutor because of his qualifications. Prior to the tutoring session, Danny requested a copy of my son's essay so that he could get a sense of his writing and decide on how to best proceed. That worked out very well because he was able to jump right into the essay. Not only is Danny is a great writer, but he is able to teach well. My son's essay lacked focus so Danny helped him stay on topic and gave him guidance for future writings. He also encouraged my son by pointing out the strengths in the essay. In addition, I am impressed by his work ethic; he responds quickly to email, arrives on time, and is very professional.
