Responding to the COVID-19 crisis, many closed schools are providing online group lessons. Some schools create their own lessons, but other schools refer students to Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) such as KhanAcademy. Regardless, most of these lessons are impersonal - they are not tailored to your student?s particular strengths and weaknesses. My tutoring (online or in-person, as you wish) provides a PERSONALIZED follow-up to such generic online lessons.

Daniel is a top-tier testing advisor, tutor and coach. My son saw a meaningful increase in his performance due to these three very different roles that Daniel seems to embody effortlessly. As an advisor, his strategic guidance brought efficiencies to the way my son approached the test. As a tutor, Daniel's command of the subject matter was superlative. As a coach, his emotional support was like that of a professional sports coach helping a star athlete improve their 'psychological' game. My son is a more confident test-taker for having learned Daniel's methods.

Daniel is the AP physics tutor for my daughter which is a Junior in High school. She was going to drop the class as many of her honor students class mates did, but after starting tutoring with Daniel she is getting top grades. Daniel is an outstanding academic in this field, but what sets him apart from the rest of tutors is his teaching methodology: -Dan makes sure that the student masters the basic key concepts of the subject, which builds a strong understanding of the material. -He teaches her how to approach studying and problem solving, which enables her not only in AP physics but all subjects areas as well. -Daniel is available with online consults, for any last minute before test questions and follows up with in person sessions, with great flexibility. -He personally follows up almost on daily basis about the student's progress and grades, by keeping a continuous communication with the parents. I can't wish for a better tutor and highly, highly recommend him.

Daniel covers test taking strategies not previously learned in other SAT preparation courses. He has a good rapport with his students and good follow-up with parents. He is reliable in scheduling sessions and communicates in a timely fashion.

We have been through a lot of tutors both between my 17 year old who Daniel is tutoring for the SAT's (mainly math which is not her strong point) and with my older daughter. I have to say, as a mother, that Daniel has been amazing. He consistently reaches out beyond actual tutoring sessions to make sure my daughter is on track. He literally was on a biking marathon and stopped every break to check in on her during a sample test. Daniel has a light and airy way about him that relaxes my daughter and allows difficult obstacles to transform to simpler ways of her to view them. In addition, he is always available via email/text/or zoom when extra help is needed. While our main goal is to help my daughter prepare for the SAT's, Daniel is also helping her with her math moving forward into her senior year of high school and beyond. We highly recommend Daniel as a tutor!!

Daniel has been my tutor for both AP Physics and AP Chemistry. He is a patient and knowledgeable tutor who is focused on how to study, through the recursive method, rather than just course material. He is also very responsive to messages online and flexible with his time. He sincerely cares about how his students do and always gives feedback to his students and their parents. He also followed up with my on my AP scores, showing that even months after I last saw him he still thought about my progress. It is with his help that I got a 5 and an A in AP Chemistry, a course I struggled in, this year.

We thank Dan, he helped our son to increase his ACT score from 26 to 30 and he is accepted to all the colleges he applied. Dan always know how to analyze the needs our son and how he can teach him.

Daniel helped me understand what problems I need to fix in tutoring and I hope we can do more tutoring.

Dan is preparing my 17 years old son for the SAT2 subjects tests in math/physics. Their sessions seem very productive and helpful. Danny gets the explanation provided and seem to.undetstand the materials.
- Ronit J. from Staten Island, NY
my son understands everything and clear your doubts I help for your exam I thank you for your help thanks
- Jose N. from New Providence, NJ
Daniel systematically plugged holes in my son's knowledge in math and science. He does not teach you how to do tests; he teaches you the fundamentals of the subject. You will do better in the tests as a result, but more importantly you will have a better understanding of how the world works.
- Ying F. from Cranbury, NJ
I failed chemistry three times before getting this tutor. With Daniel's help, this time I passed! He sets you up with a more effective way to study and is available to you when you need more help
- Courtney G. from New Brunswick, NJ
Dan is very understanding of the problems my son has with Math. He is very patient his teaching methodologies are very unique and are helping my son improve his math skills.
- Sujani M. from Piscataway, NJ
Daniel is a my son's chemistry tutor and he is great! He explains everything really well and my son has a much deeper understanding of the concepts he was not able to grasp in his class at school. My son feels a lot more confident and his grade improved in just a few lessons.
- Danielle M. from Berkeley Heights, NJ
Daniel is tutoring my son for AP physics exam using "hybrid tutoring (ie, in-person 1-to-1 sessions at first, followed by efficient online 1-to-1 sessions, with in-person 1-to-1 sessions still available)". Originally, I had made arrangement through Princeton review private tutor for unbelievable high price. I am very happy that I made right choice by choosing Daniel over Princeton review . Our 90% saving on tuition price was bonus on top of five star tutoring. I will continue to set up lesson with Daniel in future. Best tutor and will be glad to recommend him to students.

I needed help on the SAT math section and wasn't sure where to start. Daniel worked with me by watching me do questions in an SAT book. By observing my method of doing questions he got an idea of how I go about doing things and helped me understand where exactly did I mess up on questions I got wrong and also how I could improve and do things faster. On the questions I got wrong, he reviewed the concept with me and then had me do questions similar to that of the question. He revealed to me my weaknesses and the concepts that I was not familiar with so I could tackle those and focus on improving my skills. He helped me realize my flaws and was very helpful!

Dan is a Thorough, patient and well prepared tutor. He is very knowledgeable in calculus and we will continue to work with him. He asks strategic questions to ensure his students truly understands. He is a very reliable and organized tutor. My kids look forward to more sessions with him.
- Donna D. from Cranford, NJ
I would like to very highly recommend Daniel! My son is currently taking Honors Physics and was having a tough time grasping the material despite studying very hard and communicating with his teacher. Feel so fortunate that I connected with Daniel and he has an amazing way of explaining the material to the students and more importantly teach them techniques that helps them in studying independently. My son's grade in the test jumped from 69 to 96 after only one session! Hope he can continue this winning streak for the rest of the year and he now actually looks forward to studying Physics :) Thanks Daniel!

I have made an attempt throughout high school to select the most rigorous advanced placement course schedule. This caused me to place the college test preparation in the back seat: huge mistake. I am currently about a month away from The final ACT test. My current science ACT score is low considering what reach colleges and Ivy leagues expect. In just a few sessions, Daniel's teaching methods have brought me up to speed in the Science portion. He is now planning to tutor me in Math. Daniel is gifted and his approach removes the fear barriers and clarifies concepts in testing. I highly recommend Daniel for college test preparation. But please, please as a student invest yourself and train generously.
- Natalie C. from Scotch Plains, NJ
Dan provided tutoring to my son Zachary in AP Bio. He helped Zachary significantly improve his grade. Dan helped him think through the complex subject matter in a easy to understand way. I would definitely recommend Dan for assistance in AP Bio.
- Sabrina M. from Westfield, NJ
Daniel makes every topic understandable by giving very relatable examples. He makes sure you thoroughly understand the topic, and not just understand the specific example. Very good tutor.
