Background Check Status for Daniel S.

Daniel S. passed a background check on 12/4/12. The check was ordered by Daniel through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.

After sending a message to Daniel, you will be able to order a new background check for \$7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.

I've been tutoring math for the last 20 years. My style of tutoring depends on your goals. If you need to prepare for a specific exam, need help with a homework assignment or want some support and clarification for an entire semester, I'm your man. I graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a Bachelor's Degree in mathematics applied to statistics. I am currently an adjunct instructor at Gateway Community College. Give me a call because I would love to help. I'll simplify the math for you and maybe even make it fun. (Getting an A is always fun,...right?)

Elementary Math

Elementary mathematics includes addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; performing order of operations working with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, integers and rational numbers; estimating and rounding; evaluate arithmetic expressions involving exponents and square roots; convert between decimals, fractions and percents; construct and interpret line, bar and circle graphs; determine and interpret mean, median and mode for a set of data; read and interpret measurement scales; identify and interpret geometric figures and calculate perimeters and areas for each figure; model and solve application/real world problems; convert within and between U.S. and metric measurement systems.

Geometry

Geometry includes an in-depth analysis of plane, solid, and coordinate geometry as they relate to both abstract mathematical concepts as well as real-world problem situations. Topics include logic and proof, parallel lines and polygons, perimeter and area analysis, volume and surface area analysis, similarity and congruence, trigonometry, and analytic geometry. Emphasis will be placed on developing critical thinking skills as they relate to logical reasoning and argument. Students will be required to use different technological tools and manipulatives to discover and explain much of the course content.

SAT Math

The math sections of the SAT measure a student’s ability to reason quantitatively, solve mathematical problems, and interpret data presented in graphical form. These sections focus on four areas of mathematics that are typically covered in the first three years of American high school education: Arithmetic, Algebra and Functions, Geometry, and Data Analysis. The Algebra section was recently expanded to include basic College Algebra. To test these skills, the SAT employs two different question types:
•Multiple-Choice
•Grid-Ins

The multiple-choice questions carry a .25-point penalty for incorrect answers. The grid-in questions carry no penalty for wrong answers, because the likelihood of guessing the correct answer is negligible.

The format of the three sections is:
•25 minutes: 20 Multiple-Choice questions
•25 minutes: 8 Multiple-Choice questions followed by 10 Grid-ins.
•20 minutes: 16 Multiple-Choice questions

Fantastic Tutor! I've only had one session so far, but felt very comfortable and encouraged. Sometimes, I wouldn't know where to start on a problem and he helped me through every step without making me feel stupid. I even hurt my arm the night before our first session and was in a sling. He wrote everything for me as I asked him to - he literally was my right hand! Talk about going above and beyond. I'll continue ...
