Dana is a very effective teacher, helped me alot
Dana is a sharp tutor, he did a fine job of helping through some Linear Algebra topics. He has a good feel for how much help his students need. During our session he did a good job of pacing the lesson with my with my understanding, if I was having trouble understanding a certain concept, he would keep breaking it down until I really understood it. In order for a teacher to be truly effective, they must explain a topic they know very well, in a way which makes sense to students, Dana did this well, top notch. Thanks Dana!

Great instructor
Dana helps with Calculus. I like his teaching style. He poses a problem and asks me what I need to do first. When he sees me stuck then he explains. I learn a lot from him. I highly recommend him.

Great Tutor
Dana definitely helped me understand several of the concepts I didn’t understand in class. Now, I feel more prepared to tackle on this problem set.

Amazing tutor
Dana went over the material for my exam with me and gave me a much better understanding of it all. He is very patient and definitely very smart. I would highly recommend him for anyone who is either struggling in Calculus or just wants to refine their knowledge to get a better grade in the class

Dana is a very patient tutor.
We worked mostly on scatter plots but also reviewed previously gone over work we have done. I have problems remembering things because I had a stroke and he patiently goes over things with me when needed.

Great first experience for student and hesitant parent
I looked into Wyzant for my son specifically for AP Calculus. We found Dana, and although I was very hesitant to try online tutoring, I am glad we did. Dana was patient and informative, very knowledgeable on the subject, and seemed to really focus on what was needed and ensuring his lesson was "clicking" with my son. We debated on the star rating only because a 4 seemed too low, but we weren't comfortable enough with online tutoring to provide a full 5 star...more like a 4.5. However, if you need immediate tutoring and are comfortable with this platform, then Wyzant is a great product, and Dana offers a comprehensive and thorough experience from the moment of contact through the follow-up after the lesson. THANK YOU!

Thorough and knowledgeable!
Dana helped my son prepare for his upcoming Pre-Calc class test. My son joined the class halfway into the semester, and was feeling very lost. My son felt much more prepared for the test than when he started, so I am very thankful for that!

Patient and helpful tutor
Dana helped me review for my high school physics test. I felt confused after my last class at school but Dana helped me go over the material and I understand it much better now.

Great Calc Tutor
Went over some homework problems I was confused on to prepare for a quiz I have. Overall really helpful! He goes over questions at your own pace and makes you think about them yourself and about the overall process involved.
