Dan's passion for learning started at age eight when algebra replaced bedtime stories. A high school math champion and perfect ACT scorer, Dan graduated in three years (at the age of 20) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a bachelor's in finance.
He later traded bonds at the Chicago Board of Trade for five years before moving to New York to focus full-time on tutoring and co-found the company's first office, Pleasantville Prep.
In his free time, Dan continues to be an avid learner and hobbyist, with current favorites including photography, woodworking, and travel.
From catch-up to enrichment, we work with students from middle school through high school and beyond for just about every subject. See us in the office or work with our same team remotely from home, school, or vacation.
Diagnostics and customized tutoring plans for students preparing for the SAT & ACT, AP Exams, and private school admissions tests. Prepare face-to-face with our expert team in the office or through our online platform—our remote students can attend in-person weekend exams or join in digitally for live proctoring.
We find the unique threads that tie together each student’s personal story and help develop them into remarkably creative applications. From guidance and mentoring to deep-dive writing development, interview preparation, and meticulous detail management, we help turn our college advising students’ ambitious goals into reality.
We bring our same boutique style and skillset directly to the classroom. Partnering with high school administrations, we provide SAT & ACT instruction as an elective course for schools looking to raise the bar for their students.
