Dan's Bio

An enthusiastic teacher with a great sense of humor, Dan has spent his life in education. After earning his BA in politics from Brandeis University, he spent four years teaching algebra and geometry before entering graduate school at Cornell University, where he earned a master's degree in public administration and a PhD in education. He subsequently became the director of research and planning at a community college, simultaneously teaching a math course designed for students afraid of math. Every student worked past their fears and successfully made it through the class. Dan eventually transitioned into the corporate world, where he planned, designed, and led training programs. He has now authored eight books on corporate learning and given workshops and keynotes on five continents. Since retiring several years ago, Dan has regularly taught and tutored SAT and ACT prep.

"My entire career has been focused on helping people succeed, whether in school or at work," Dan says. "I get great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their goals." Working with premiere tutoring companies, Dan has served over two hundred students. One of the key lessons Dan has found through his experiences is that not everyone learns the same way. While he was a "math whiz" in high school, not everyone is as fast a math learner as he was, so he has always focused on finding different ways of teaching a subject to fit the learning styles of different students.

"I take pride in adapting my teaching style to the student's needs and abilities," Dan says. "So, if a student can't seem to understand some topic in the first way I present it, I find alternative ways of teaching/tutoring until the student 'gets it.'" Dan's students have found him effective, caring, and funny as a teacher, helping them achieve their optimal scores.

In high school, Dan was a member of the debate team. He enjoys reading, cooking, movies, and theater. He's been fortunate in that his career has given him many opportunities for travel and he’s visited five continents (Africa and Antarctica still to come). Fun fact: Dan once came in second in the Northeast Monopoly Championship.
