Knowledgeable Tutor

Daniel helped me through out my graduate application process. I definitely could not have done it this fast and in high quality without him. He was flexible with my schedule and was patient despite my hectic demands and deadlines. He offers realistic advice to improve my overall applications and essays. Daniel is definitely worth the investment.

Excellent tutor for MBA application

I spent so much time and effort on my deferred MBA applications. Daniel really held my hands and helped me to get through the essay editing, resume review, rec letter stuff, & solved my miscellaneous nitty-gritty questions. His advice and suggestions are very candid. His past experience in reading MBA applications helps me to differentiate my application from others. I could not recommend more to work with him on your MBA applications!

Thoughtful, Insightful and Knowledgeable Tutor

I have worked with Daniel on multiple business school applications and Daniel has been a tremendous help every step of the way; from writing/correcting essays to mock interviews. Daniel helped me in my applications to 4 top 12 programs, and with his assistance, I have been accepted by 2 of the 4, am interviewing for another. Through every step of the application process Daniel is able to give firsthand knowledge and insights that allow you to make the best decisions possible. Regardless of the school that you are applying to, Daniel is a tremendous help that I would recommend to any potential student applying to grad school.

Excellent Instructor

He was very good. I would recommend him to a friend or colleague. He was knowledgeable and thorough. Seemed to know what he was talking about. I recommend using him if you have financial questions and desire help.

Knowledgeable and personable tutor

Daniel was a fantastic tutor! His edits on my graduate school additions papers were spot on and helped me develop my ideas further. He was smart and always made it a point to communicate directly and quickly to me, which I appreciate. The one day I cancelled on him twice due to an illness, he was patient and understanding regardless. We met the next day and a productive session!
