Educational Support.    Academic Tutoring.    Test Preparation.

Nancy Silverton

My son had been struggling with his writing in school. Daniel was able to connect with him and improve his skills tremendously. His confidence grew as a writer, student, and person. The quality I valued most in Dan was his ability to make the tutoring sessions enjoyable as well as productive. My son took the lessons to heart and became a journalism major at NYU.

Daniel has helped my son raise his grade in English, but he has also helped him in other ways. I may be able to mentor my son in most areas of life from finance to fishing, but the current school environment has some pitfalls and hurdles that I’m just beginning to understand. Daniel has been there to guide my son through the school process, and I’m glad to turn that part of mentoring over to him.

In my role as an author, I had the privilege of working with Mr. Witz in his classroom. Together, we taught the basics of writing and journalism. I am deeply impressed with Mr. Witz. He is an outstanding, dynamic teacher, who inspires children to think critically. He is innovative, exhibiting great leadership skills, and his enthusiasm for teaching is evident in every interaction with his students.

My son is a student at New Trier and has worked with Daniel on various papers or to help prepare for tests. What stands out for me is the high level of engagement and enthusiasm that I hear coming from the study area. As a parent it always seems like a battle when asking my son to go that extra mile with proofreading or studying, but when he works with Daniel the process seems almost effortless. It takes talent to get my tech-obsessed kid to say that writing a paper was the coolest thing he did all night.

My son worked with Daniel to prepare for the reading and English portion of the ACT, and the improvement was remarkable. Another impressive moment occurred when my daughter had neglected a 200 pt. portfolio requiring four papers, rough drafts, peer edits, and reflections. Daniel jump started the process and had the foresight to schedule another student simultaneously to assist with the peer edits. Somehow she finished before the deadline and earned a 95%.

For all the school related work Daniel has done with both my son and daughter, what I value most is his belief in them. Like all teenagers they make their share of mistakes, but Daniel never dwells on them. Instead, he helps them take action to correct the situation and successfully move forward to the next challenge. I am especially grateful for how Daniel supported my son’s application to a private high school. Not only did he write an amazing recommendation, he also went the extra mile by personally calling the director of admissions. I believe this was a major factor in my son’s acceptance.
