"Dan tutored my 7th grader in writing for several months. My son immediately felt comfortable with Dan, and looked forward to his weekly sessions. Dan's approach is practical and the results were obvious and relatively quick to see - his teacher commented how much his writing had improved, and we as parents could easily tell how much more 'juicy' his writing had become - Dan's mantra of 'show, don't tell' stuck! Dan was always on time, his communication with us was clear and timely, and he was always very professional. He even put up with our dog, who adored him and wouldn't get off his lap during the sessions."
