An experienced, knowledgeable, creative tutor can guide students to new levels of accomplishment. I can help you improve scores, raise grades, and expand options. I'm bright, funny, friendly, and firm.

I do this work because there is nothing quite as satisfying to me as facilitating someone's growth and success. I look forward to learning about what will help YOU.

I was dreading my English class in Elizabethan Literature, but Dan brought Shakespeare to life for me. Dan gave me a completely new understanding of the characters and plot, but best of all, he helped me finally get Shakespeare's language. For my final, Dan helped me learn a sonnet by heart. I practiced with my family and it made my Mom cry. Thanks Dan!a year ago
I had a major paper to write on medieval Armenian political history and I had no idea where to begin. Dan calmed me down and, after we figured out what the assignment was really about, Dan guided me through the process of producing a paper that earned me an "A". Five stars, Mr. K.2 years ago
I was accepted into an accelerated transfer program, but I had registered for too many classes. The workload was killing me. My grades were starting to slide. Dan, you taught me new ways to study that showed me I could get better grades by working smarter. My whole attitude about studying is different now. Now I'm a junior at a prestige university, and I approach all my classes with more confidence. I know I can do it and I have a method that I can apply to ANY academic situation. THANKS Dan, you ARE the best!2 years ago
Everytime I looked at the prompts for my college applications, I freaked out! Dan helped me understand what the application essays were all about. He taught me what I needed to communicate. He interviewed me and helped me calm down enough to write out my thoughts. Then we explored the possibilities together. Our process made a huge difference. I don't know whether I could have done it without his calm and friendly help. Thanks Dan, really.2 years ago
