What our clients say about Daniel
I am thrilled with the results of Dan Bloss’ ACT tutoring and wholeheartedly recommend him to any college bound student who wants to significantly increase his or her scores!— Kevin Gardner, Washington, DC
Our experience with the tutoring services and Dan in particular has been nothing but positive. Dan established an excellent rapport with our son and helped him stay on task, study regularly and stay engaged in his standardized test prep. Our son did very well on both the Subject Tests and the ACT, and I’m sure Dan’s assistance was integral to his success.— Jennifer Kaplan, Washington, DC
Throughout my tutoring experience, Dan has been consistently effective and kind. He not only worked with me on improving my ACT and SAT Subject Test scores, but he also made himself available when I needed assistance with my schoolwork. Dan prepared me for all aspects of the test, especially strategy, content and even tips for the day of the test. He related to me at my level, believed in me, and gave me the confidence to excel. It was a pleasure working with him!— Katherine Hamilton, Bethesda, MD
