Awesome tutor!

Dan clearly understood and could explain material. He was very responsive and helpful through email when I had complicated technical questions while working on my own. He was great!

Thanks Dan!

Dan tutored me for 2 courses this quarter. He was very knowledgeable/helpful and led me to the correct answer without giving it to me. He was a great tutor.

Excellent Tutor

Dan tutored me in statistics for one of my college courses. I found him to be patient, thorough, and helpful. He broke down complicated subjects and helped me solve a lot of difficult practice problems.
