About Dan

I specialize in GRE tutoring and firmly believe that anyone can improve their score on the verbal section. I am an etymology enthusiast and I received a perfect score on the GRE Verbal section in 2012 (it wasn't my first try). If you can pay better attention to quirky bits of history than to rote memorization of definitions, then you can improve your score too.

Another specialty of mine is psychology, especially clinical/abnormal. My background is in psychiatric epidemiology research, and I have interviewed over 400 individuals with psychotic and mood disorders. I have also trained many interviewers in psychopathology, phenomenology, and diagnosis, which often leads to discussions on epistemology (theory of knowledge). Look no further if you need help with the GRE subject test for Psychology.

I have also written many hundreds of pages of professional narrative, and have edited an equivalent amount written by coworkers. I provide diligent editing services focused on improving organization and flow, and strengthening arguments.

My strength as a tutor lies in my dynamic approach. Everyone learns differently, and I make a point of understanding how each person learns. While I set out to help people get the test scores they want, I try to help them develop a network of knowledge that improves retention and the ability to use information when it counts. Above all, my goal is to encourage curiosity and a belief in self improvement.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

GRE

I am experienced with the version of the GRE that came out in 2012, and I have taken it myself. I scored 170/170 on the verbal section and 160/170 on the quantitative section (78th percentile, or 760/800 on the old test). I am experienced with tutoring for both sections, and I can teach you how to speak the language of the GRE to improve your score on both.

Excellent! — Dan was my tutor for the GRE. I mainly wanted to focus on the writing, but he made sure I was paying attention to all the sections. Dan is very attentive to my strengths and weaknesses. We met weekly for about 2 months. Overall, I feel very confident in doing well on this exam, thanks to Dan being very supportive of me. I highly recommend him!! :) ...
