Duke University, University of North Carolina ( Mathematics)
Hi, my name is Dani. I tutor students in New York City and online for all sections of the SAT and ACT. I attended both Duke University and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I graduated with a degree in Mathematics in 2013.
For the past year, I have worked full-time as a test prep tutor for a highly-regarded, boutique tutoring company in Southport, Connecticut. In the process, I have accumulated over one thousand hours of invaluable tutoring experience. Show me a SAT or ACT problem that you're having trouble with -- I bet I have seen it before! Of course, there is much more to tutoring than "knowing your stuff." I have also learned highly effective ways to convey the knowledge and skills necessary for success on these standardized tests.
The tutoring that I offer is highly personalized. I form a test-prep plan based on the student's individual strengths and weaknesses. Progress is monitored through regular homework assignments. I also give students practice tests on a semi-regular basis in order to objectively measure progress and to gauge where instruction should be focused. The material I use consists of official ACT and SAT tests and that have been administered nationwide in the past.
Tutoring is not only my job; it is a passion. I take great joy in helping my students. My work, as I see it, goes beyond preparing them for standardized tests. It involves helping them to develop skills that will serve them not only on their tests, but also in their current high school classes, their future college classes, and their eventual lives beyond academia.
I recommend that sessions last for 1.5 hours, as this time length allows for the most effective tutoring. I meet with students in mutually convenient locations (i.e., coffee shops and libraries) in upper, middle, and downtown Manhattan. I also offer in-house tutoring in upper, middle, and downtown Manhattan. Finally, for students who live outside of Manhattan, I offer tutoring via Skype. Hi, my name is Dani.

Cancellations that occur less than 5 hours before the session, as well as no shows, will be charged $25.
Previously, Dani tutored our oldest son for the SAT. In 2 months, our son's score on the writing portion of the SAT increased 110 points.
Currently, Dani is tutoring our daughter for the ACT. He is very patient, dependable and can effectively tutor a wide range of subjects areas. We highly recommend Dani for SAT or ACT prep.
Dani has been a great help to my son and his ACT Science score.
He's started expanding into other areas as my son's score on the science section on the ACT has shot up. I highly recommend him!
I recently returned to school after many years and decided to hire a tutor in preparation for my math class. Working with Dani has been a delight. He is the perfect combination of patient and competent. He has helped me tremendously relearn math which has been my weakest link. Thank you, Dani. I hope you know how much I appreciate your time and effort!
Dani is a reliable & patient tutor! And of course I would love him to continue working with my nephew!
Very patient and calm. Reliable and easy to contact. Dani is an excellent tutor for our son. He goes that extra mile to help.
My son had his first lesson with Dani. It went great. He was efficient. We discussed our goals, he checked to see where my son was having problems and he started working from there. The two of them got along well. I was surprised how much they covered in an hour. Dani is well organized. He made recommendations on how we would effectively track and measure my son's progress. He followed up in a timely manner. My son and I are happy with the lesson and look forward to next week.
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 scored a 790 on the writing section of the SAT. In college, I took enough writing-intensive philosophy classes to qualify for a philosophy minor at Duke University.
I really enjoy helping students improve their writing. Over the years friends have come to me to proofread and edit their papers, and I've seen their writing improve a lot in the process.
