While working with Mr. D, I learned how easy intricate problems and concepts can be,” said Nate Reynolds, SAT Prep class student. “I can honestly say that no other math curriculum has made it this clear for me and given me this much confidence in myself. He showed me many techniques that allow me to work a problem in half the time.”
