Course: 8th Grade Math Satisfactory Performance

For those of you who have seen The Blind Side , Daniel was essentially our Miss Sue. We could not have helped our daughter in school the way he did. Daniel was prompt, professional, organized and effective. He touched base with us every week regarding progress, challenges, and the next week's schedule. He was flexible and very easy to work with. Our daughter who had been getting C's and D's ended her semester with A's and B's! Thank you, Daniel!!

Course: Precalculus For Engineers (APPM 1235) Satisfactory Performance

Daniel was always on time and super attentive. He was great with rescheduling also. He was patient in teaching me things I didn't understand the first time. He even would email me help if I needed a quick answer. He was very knowledgeable in everything I asked.

Morgan L , January 2016

Course: General Chemistry 2 (CHEM 1133) Satisfactory Performance

Daniel made the information make sense to me, personally. He is so knowledgeable but never patronizing while relaying information.

Maddie H , January 2016

Course: Quantitative methods (MBAC 6031) Satisfactory Performance

Dan was a great tutor. He was always willing to make time to meet and was very helpful when we did meet. Dan knew the material very well and was great at explaining the material.

Ronny B , December 2015

Course: Chemistry For Energy And Material Science (MCEN 1024) Satisfactory Performance

Daniel was very good at explaining and simplifying complex things in Chemistry. I definitely recommend him to anyone who is struggling with a Chem course.

Mansour A , December 2015

Course: Statistical Methods (EMEN 5005 / APPPM 4570) Satisfactory Performance

Daniel is an excellent tutor - he always came well prepared for sessions and offered additional explanations to go beyond the basic material. Highly recommended!

Alexander G , December 2015

Course: General Chemistry 1 Lab (CHEM 1114) Satisfactory Performance

Daniel was very help in dumbing down the subject of chemistry for me and making it easier for me to comprehend it.

Jim S , December 2015

Course: General Chemistry 1 (CHEM 1113) Satisfactory Performance

My tutor was always on time. He was patient with me and was very knowledgable about Chemistry. He always knew the answer, and if on the rare occasion he wasn't positive about something, he texted me later to help me on his own time. He was always willing to reschedule, and was very flexible and was willing to work with my schedule. He was very professional, never waisted time, and was very focused. I couldn't have gotten the grade that I did in Chemistry without him.

Jordan Z , May 2015

Course: General Chemistry 1 (CHEM 1113) Satisfactory Performance

Daniel is a great tutor. He is always well prepared, and always on time. He is very well versed in chemistry, and always knew how to help me.

Course: High School Advanced Algebra 1 Satisfactory Performance

Kenzie really like Daniel and said he was a great tutor who helped her understand the material she was having issues with.

Makenzie H , May 2014

Course: General Chemistry 1 (CHEM 1113) Satisfactory Performance

I have been meeting with tutors since middle school and Daniel is by far the greatest tutor I have encountered. He is incredibly patient and knowledgable. He knows all chemistry concepts off the top of his head and is able to provide incredibly good explanations to a student with little chemistry background. Daniel is incredibly professional. I met with him 3+ times a week since the second week of the semester and not once was Daniel late nor did he ever cancel a session. I would highly recommend Daniel as a tutor.

Chelsey W , December 2013

Course: College Algebra (MATH 1011) Satisfactory Performance

Daniel is an awesome tutor, he is very timely and organized.
