Daniel is a great tutor. His ability to listen to what the student needs and then proceed to help the student is brilliant!

Nick, 3 lessons with Daniel

Amazing Experience

Daniel did an amazing job helping me understand not only my strengths, but the area's in which I was weak. He also was a big help in giving me little tips on better ways to study and take in information. Daniel was very clear, concise and made sure to listen to what I was saying so that he could know how to give me the best information to help me work through a problem.

Durand, 1 lesson with Daniel

An Excellent & Experienced Tutor

He is an excellent, experienced, sharp and patient tutor w/ incredible writing skills. I couldn't asked for a better tutor and teacher, and was very thankful for his immediate and kind help and time. Many thanks to Daniel!

Incredible Help for both General Knowledge and Specific Examination Techniques

First things first, I gotta say, Daniel G is an awesome tutor. I had the pleasure of being tutored by him in 2 subjects: AP World History and AP English Language and Composition. For both, I didn't need someone to teach me the content or instruct me on the details of the exam, as I had self-studied a sufficient amount beforehand; rather, I required a tutor that could enrich my pre-existing subject knowledge while giving me meaningful feedback regarding my essays, which I particularly struggled with (given my homeschooled circumstance). And deep and profound discourse in the required fields was exactly what Daniel G was able to provide: not only did he supply me with a multitude of exam tips and strategies during our sessions, but he also provided numerous in-depth comments and suggestions for further reading in regards to my essay writing. He was not only amazingly helpful in outlining various points of interest/importance that I further delved into to develop a stronger foundation of historical knowledge, but also in being the architect of a clear and concise structure that I successfully applied to my essays in both subjects, facillitating my composition of a deep, comprehensive essay in a relatively short amount of time To conclude, I highly recommend Daniel G for students who desire an instructive but also warm and friendly tutoring experience; I am confident that he will be of assistance to any student who is need of someone to provide a multifaceted tutoring experience. Thank you,

Knowledgeable and first class tutoring service

Was in need of some immediate, late night help on completing a college level essay. Daniel was a late night rescue and improved my essay beyond what I thought what I could accomplish. Turned out great and overall extremely satisfied. Will definitely recommend him for AP/college-level writers.

Devon, 2 lessons with Daniel

Thank you, Dr. G!

Dr. G. was very helpful for me. I needed help applying for pre-collegiate programs at competitive universities and Dr. G. made the lesson very interesting and fun. He was very fun to work with while also teaching me new things and making myself ask deep, insightful questions to better understand the material. Thank you!
