The SAT and ACT are necessary evils. It is not right or fair that a student's potential should be measured by a pattern of dots on a page. However, these tests are the only valid means of comparing academic aptitude of students across high schools that differ by culture, rigor, and even GPA scale. For this reason, the SAT and ACT will continue to play a significant role in admission to the vast majority of universities in the United States.
I see it as my mission to help students maximize their freedom of choice - not only the choice of which college to attend but also the choice of how to live. Will you preserve your present attitude, or will you change it? Will your mind run the show, or will it serve your greater purpose? Will you stay comfortable, or will you stay hungry? The day you get accepted into the university of your choice is the day your SAT and ACT scores become irrelevant. That's why I strive to provide tools and techniques that will serve you not just in academia, but beyond it.
I've had the privilege of working with hundreds of students over the past 6 years to help them substantially increase grades and test scores, strengthen confidence in and out of the classroom, and get accepted into some of the most selective and prestigious universities in the country. I have degrees in Statistics and Marketing, which have given me an ideal balance of analytical and lingual expertise to master all content on the SAT and ACT.
Effective test prep goes well beyond math concepts and grammar rules, however. I'm grateful to have learned key methods and strategies while working for two of the top SAT / ACT prep companies in the country. I've taken the most successful components of each company's techniques and synthesized them into unique and proven methods for conquering each subject of these tests.
As someone who did SAT training with Danny for many months, I can tell you that he is truly an amazing teacher. At the beginning of our time studying together, I had an SAT score of 1220. By the end of my time studying with him, I had a practice SAT score of 1420. Danny is super friendly and I had a great time with him as my teacher.
10/10 recommend Danny. He has a calm and patient way that makes tutoring something my son doesn’t dread! He has a great ability to understand my son as a student, and target areas for development in concepts and test-taking strategies. And all with great results — my son took the SAT in December and after eight sessions with Danny, his score went up 140 points in March.
Danny has helped two of my children achieve incredible results on the SAT and ACT. He is patient and knowledgeable. He takes the time to get to know each student’s personality and needs. Danny tailors his tutoring approach to each student’s needs and continues working on these key areas until the student is well prepared to take the test. My daughter’s SAT score went up significantly the 2nd time she took the test after working with Danny on her weak sections. He is thoughtful and makes the tutoring sessions fun as well. Our family highly recommends Danny.
