Grand Prix Tutoring understands the demanding schedule associated with the academic needs of junior equestrians. Founder Danielle Cooper grew up on the horse show circuit and faced the daily changes that many student-athletes face today. Danielle and the Grand Prix Tutoring tutors understand the sense of accomplishment that comes with performing at a high level in the ring and the classroom.
Grand Prix Tutoring tailors programs to the specific needs of our students. We provide structure and balance fostering strong study skills and organizational strategies to help our students achieve their goals. Our tutors customize each session to each student's particular needs. We take a unique approach to helping each student, depending on learning style and level of motivation.
We assist students who attend both traditional and online schools. Our experience allows us to guide our students and their families in making the best academic decisions for their student's future. We oversee course selection to help students reach their goals, such as making honor roll, obtaining an athletic scholarship, or improving test-taking skills and confidence. We also guide families through online school selection, enrollment, and the college application process.
Our tutors are carefully vetted, experienced professors, teachers, and educators with upbeat personalities and superior communication skills. Our tutors are dedicated to helping our students exceed their academic goals while simultaneously creating fun, memorable learning experiences for our students.

Danielle's ability to provide straightforward explanations of complex material leads her students to great academic achievements. Danielle successfully tutors students in all core subjects and helps students prepare for standardized tests.
Danielle Cooper has been privately tutoring year round since 2012. She manages the educations of equestrian athletes throughout the school year. Danielle is uniquely experienced to help equestrians as she successfully balanced her education at New York based schools, Portledge School and New York University (NYU), with participating in show jumping competitions nationally. She won the Amateur-Owner Hunter 18 to 35 Circuit Championship and competed in Grand Prix classes while attending college full time. Danielle graduated one semester early from New York University with a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics through the prestigious Courant Institute and with a minor in Business Studies through the Stern School of Business. At the age of 16, she received a perfect score of 800 on the math portion of the SAT I. Danielle completed this SAT on the same day that she competed at the USEF Showjumping Talent Search (USET) Finals, so she understands the pressures of balancing academics and horse showing. She relates to and bonds with her equestrian students over their shared experiences in the show ring.
In addition to tutoring students, Danielle ensures that parents are up to date on their child's progress. She personally communicates with each student's school administration and teachers. She manages the exchange of assignments and assessments between Grand Prix Tutoring and each student's school.
