Danny does a good job of breaking things down so my daughter can understand them. My daughter gets more out of AP World now and has dramatically improved her grades since she has been working with Danny. He always comes prepared and helps us with additional resources like timelines, etc. I am glad we hired him!
Not only does he know his material, he is very well prepared, has excellent organization and follow up skills and has improved my daughter’s AP World History grade from a C+ to an A- with just one session.
Danny is a wonderful tutor. My son has enjoyed his sessions and Danny is truly very flexible with all the needs presented. Danny is an engaging teacher and tutor! His expertise and ability to capture my sons level of understanding and how to best assist his exam preparation was outstanding.
The way he presents his ideas in a form of slide- show and maps are great
We review about the native American and studied the Colonial Times in North of America
Danny helped me with AP NSL, which is basically AP government. The focus was on an upcoming test. I sent him my test review guide the night before and he came prepared with typed up explanations of every term. He was organized, punctual, kind, and best of all efficient and great at explaining concepts so that I learned a lot in a short amount of time. He also sent me the notes he made so that I could have them and they were really helpful. Danny helped me understand the concepts instead of just trying to help me memorize terms and made the lesson interesting.
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 coached a U-14 soccer team with the Soccer Organization of Charlottesville-Albermale during my first semester at the University of Virginia (Fall 2007). Our team record for the season was 3-5-2, but we were able to win the Championship for our U-14 Division at the end of the season.
My coaching style stresses the possession aspect of soccer, emulating the practices and tactics used by some of the best clubs in the world. I am an avid soccer fan, so I am constantly watching games from all over the world to learn more from the game. Most importantly, my coaching will stress to the players to love and enjoy the game, because only then will the players can strive to achieve "joga bonito."
