About Daniel

I wrote my own SAT prep book at age 24 and regularly help students gain hundreds of points. I teach all SAT/ACT sections, both strategies and content, for students at all levels. After graduating Cornell University, I wrote my own SAT book and started an SAT/PSAT/ACT prep company in Miami, FL.

I then completed medical school and am currently doing my psychiatry residency at Harvard. I tutor evenings and weekends. I have a good sense of humor and am easy to work with. I am also a great motivator and coach.

I start Math Lesson 1 by teaching strategies. Then, over the next four Math lessons, students practice these strategies as they cover only the content tested on the Math SAT. In this way you get a review of the content, while mastering strategies that unlock the difficult questions.

I can raise Reading scores just as effectively by teaching you to find the answer in the passage. This removes the guessing, reasoning, deducing, and inferring and makes the right answer stand out from the wrong ones. I can also save you time with a special technique of answering certain questions as you read the passage. For writing, we will cover the grammar you need to know for the multiple choice questions and the structure of a simple high scoring essay. Feel free to contact me so we can chat and schedule our first session.

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.

I am a Harvard Psychiatry resident. I scored a 37 on my MCAT, taught MCAT for Kaplan for 4 years, and have been doing test prep in general for over 15 years.
