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.

Math suck! I get it. But like a coin, there's another side to it. It can be fun or at least tolerable. I'll teach you not to overthink it and just do math. It's simple, really. All my students, from ages 8 to 20 all end up saying, "Oh, that wasn't so hard!"

I like to + some fun and humor in my tutor sessions so it should be more tolerable for you. Also, it makes it stick longer!

About Lillian

I've been tutoring elementary student in Common Core math this past year. It is definitely different than what we were taught when I was young. But I firmly believe that having more tools in your toolbelt is more advantageous than not. While I only listed I tutor Biology and Algebra on here, I know

I am currently a second year PhD student and research adjunct in Chemical Engineering at The City College of New York. I have 4 years of experience as a teaching assistant, 2 years of which overlapped with experience as a private tutor. While in high school, I was enrolled in advanced placement courses, all of which remain virtually the same in content except for the offerings of Physics I completed in 2016. As an instructor, I bring a creative, patient, and interdisciplinary attitude to the table. In addition to being highly skilled in the areas of math, science, coding, and engineering, I am also happy to mentor students through the college admissions process (both undergraduate and graduate) by providing help with personal statements, standardized exam preparation, and interview skills.

"Colin is an instructor for whom tutoring is a genuine passion for the education of others. He patiently ensures that I thoroughly comprehend the subject matter and that I do not just memorize the content of the lesson for testing-related purposes (as I have in the past.) His style of teaching assures that I meaningfully retain the information to ensure that it is applicable to my immediate education as well as real-world future endeavors."

"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!"

"My daughter has been working with Colin in Biology and Algebra for this school year and he has done an absolutely wonderful job with her. What makes Colin such a great teacher and leader is his ability to be very patient and really take the time that is necessary to ensure my daughter truly understands the topics she is being taught in school. Additionally, he has provided her with study techniques on how she can improve on understanding what she is learning and prepare for exams; it has made a tremendous difference in her performance. I highly recommend Colin; he is one of the very best teachers."

"Colin is a great math tutor. My daughter, who is very shy, made an instant connection with Colin after her very first lesson with him. He is extremely thorough and takes the time to ensure she understands the math concepts. He has not only built her confidence but has made math more enjoyable for her to learn. He is very patient and it is obvious that he loves to teach. If you are looking for a great teacher - I highly recommend Colin."

"We are very fortunate to have found Colin to tutor our son, who is 14, in algebra. He was struggling in his class and with his confidence in math, but after his first few sessions with Colin his quiz and test scores in algebra came up. Not only that, but he even teaches his classmates the techniques he has learned with Colin. Very impressed with our son’s progress. Thank you Colin!"
