Absolutely amazing! I was struggling with Calculus but Daniel helped me get through it. Thanks to him I now know if there is a problem I’m stuck on or need help I can confidently ask him for math help.
Erin
Helped me with Introductory Physics 1 and 2! Really helped me understand the material rather than just doing the problems for me! Great tutoring!
Angela
Daniel tutored my teenage son in Algebra and Geometry for over one year. During that time, my son's grades increased and he became more confident with Math, in general. His time with Daniel set him up for success in Algebra 2 this year (11th grade). Daniel was always on time, very polite and courteous with my son! Highly recommend his tutoring service.

First lesson. Too soon to tell. Not what I was expecting, but I had nothing on which to base any expectation. I will trust the process.

I have been teaching math for several years now and understand the need for a good foundation. I work with students to find any concepts they have missed or do not fully understand. My goal in teaching math is always comprehension not grades. After laying a good foundation, it is amazing to see the improvement and success my students have had!

Algebra was my first true love in math, and is one of my favorite subjects to teach due to its fundamental importance and real-life application in the wonderful world of mathematics.

I have won the lifetime impact award twice at my previous school, and pride myself on engaging my students through humor, technology, and making learning fun! I play guitar and piano during certain lessons to engage my students while learning mathematical formulas and other concepts. One thing that sets me apart from other tutors is my humor.

There were plenty of times she spent her lunch periods with me to give extra one on one time when need after graduating from being her student, she has always kept in touch with me. In college, I can email her any material that I do not understand, and she finds the most amazing way to show me over video chat. She had gave me better clarification sometimes then my own professors/teachers."

She learned in 15 minutes from Julissa, what she couldn't learn for many many classes with her regular teacher. After only her first session she went and googled some of the math problems they discussed to go practice, on her own! And asked that I bump her session with Julissa to twice a week instead of only once! Thank you SO MUCH!"

"My 3 daughters looked forward to Tutoring Nights with Colin!

I have 3 girls in High school (10th, 10th, and 9th) . they had been struggling in math since I can remember. I didn't think I could afford tutoring. They each had an 'F' in math.

I found Colin, and what a blessing! In just THREE short weeks Colin had my girls understanding HIS lessons, their CLASSROOM lessons and PASSING their exams! They brought their grades up too!

The best thing I can compare his tutoring to is: an adult teaching a kid to ride a bike...
He didn't expect them to just ride a bike. he took the proper steps and taught my girls about the bike parts, the way the bike functions, how they all work together, how to properly sit and pedal, and he even held them up until they understood it completely and eventually were able to ride the bike on their own.

Thank you Colin! for putting my girls back on track with math!"
