Over the past two decades he has trained or mentored hundreds of tutors and worked with thousands of students.

When it comes to students, Dan is a great diagnostician. He will determine each student’s particular needs and adapt his approach and strategy accordingly. Dan takes particular delight in connecting with high scoring students who need someone with true proficiency to wring the last few points out of a test, be it the SAT, the ACT, a Subject Test or an academic program. Dan is also fluent in Italian, German, French, and Spanish languages.

He also loves helping strong students with weak test-taking skills understand how tests are structured and how to best approach them in order to reach the student’s goal score. Finally, Dan has an extensive background in art and literature, and greatly enjoys working with students who have a passion for more creative pursuits.
