-BA in Math from UCSD, magna cum laude
-OVER 2150 successful hours of tutoring in the last 3 years
-You will not only learn the subject, you will learn to improve your ability TO study
-Can debug even the most bogged student
-Excellent reviews from clients attending major colleges to K-6th
-I've even had students discover they CAN study, and decide to come OFF drugs
So, if study is a constant source of problems for you, or you feel like you're just not good in a subject, be assured that as you understand certain basics, that all smooths out. I once had a student who just couldn't get through algebra. The parents were at their wit's end. I did a couple sessions and made this startling discovery - she was seeing minus signs as equal signs - she needed glasses! In 16 years, nobody had ever picked this up, not even the student! So that's how basic, basic can be.
My name is Dan, and the subjects I tutor include all levels of math through calculus, economics, statistics, physics, and accounting and investing basics. I can also tutor test prep, English vocabulary and composition. And as noted, I'm quite expert in rapidly debugging a student, clearing up the missed areas, and getting the student winning and moving again successfully through the material. I think a large part of my success is that I have over 30 years experience applying math and computer science to engineer systems in the real world, so I'm focused on rapidly getting the result wanted by the client.
As I do this essentially around the clock, I can always work out my schedule to the client's satisfaction, including nights and weekends. I also have worked all over Los Angeles County, from West LA to East LA all the way to Pasadena and Alhambra, and from Hollywood to Pacoima. I also successfully tutor using shared desktop software when convenient or in emergencies.
But I believe it's best to hear what my clients have to say, so I've included a reference below.
It would be great to hear from you.
"Dan and I started working together in mid October 2012. I came to him a week before a midterm with no knowledge of what was going to be on the test. Dan and I worked tirelessly that next week to try to get up to speed and at least earn a passing grade on the exam. Dan was not only concerned about me getting a good grade but he was also very concerned that I conceptualized the information. Dan truly cares about the well being of his students. There were numerous sessions throughout the semester where Dan worked with me until 2 or 3 AM. He is more concerned about the well being of his students than he is his own health or well being. Dan not only taught me the information for my class but he also taught me how to study. Prior to Dan, I had been cramming for midterms the week before they occurred hoping to pull off an A or B. Dan taught me how to teach myself the information by using the resources that were at my disposal, aka my book. Prior to Dan, I really did not know how to study and it showed in the material that I actually conceptualized and could repeat from past classes, which was not too much. Dan would be my first option for any kind of math/number based class. He reads the material ahead of time so your are not wasting your time during the session trying to figure out what is important and what is not. Using Dan makes sure that every dollar that you spend on him is well spent." Jason F.
