About Dan

I don't want to clutter you with the many subjects that I CAN teach. I want to tell you about the subject I'm an expert at: SAT and ACT. I help high school students increase their scores so they can get into their schools of choice and get top scholarship money, which saves their parents potentially thousands on the cost of college.

I've worked with one of the top tutoring companies in NYC who would charge $400/50 minute session. I learned a lot from that experience and want to bring that to you at a much more affordable rate.

My scores are
ACT: 34/36
SAT: 2400/2400 superscore
(My scores helped me get into Duke University, earn a full tuition scholarship to Colgate U and a Full-Ride (Tuition and Room & Board + free laptop) to The College of New Jersey)

I've also received 800's on the Math IIc and Physics subject tests, and 11 perfect scores on Advanced Placement Exams, so I'm a test taking pro.

In addition to this, I integrate valuable life lessons rarely taught or even mentioned in primary school and college that help students become more successful and balanced people in the real world. My students continually come back to me and thank me for showing them these quick and simple tools in stress management and productivity.

I call it the Holistic Approach or Whole-Person Centered Tutoring.

--Rescheduling means you will rebook your lesson sometime that week. Cancellation means you don't want to see me at all for that week. I won't be a meanie about it and will let it probably slide once or twice. I just ask you to respect my time and I will respect yours.

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.

SAT Reading

I consistently score above a 700 on this section and have achieved the coveted 800 before. I've worked with one of the top companies in NYC who would charge $400/50 minute session. I learned a lot from that experience and want to bring that to you at a much more affordable rate. My approach breaks down questions by difficulty level so you gradually progress to harder problems. There's many ways to study vocabulary. I've sorted the various approaches and picked out the best resources for each approach.

Wholistic Approach — He really tries hard to learn about the student and teaches them everything they need to know to be successful on the ACT. This includes goal setting, exercises to maintain focus, tips on how to approach each section, etc. He has initiative and is taking charge of my daughter's test prep. So far we are pleased. ...
