Hello! My name is Daniel, and I am currently a student at UCLA (Go Bruins!) pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Some interesting facts about myself:
My parents were born in Korea and moved to Argentina when they were kids, and that's where I was born and grew up until the middle of 6th grade. Thus, I grew up speaking 3 different languages and continue to speak them today!
I like playing musical instruments. I began playing drums when I was 10, picked up an electric guitar at the age of 14, and now I mostly play acoustic guitar and sing. I am very comfortable playing and teaching how to play all three instruments.
I like playing sports. Because I grew up in Argentina, soccer has always been my favorite sport. I also like to play basketball and golf.
I love serving at my local church. I have been attending LA Open Door Church for about 8 years now, and it is my second home. I am grateful to God for having led me there, and I truly believe that I would not be the man I am today had it not been for my brothers and sisters there.
Now, regarding my teaching:
I have officially been tutoring for 3 years (since around junior year in high school). However, I believe that I have many more years of experience in helping fellow peers learn. I have always been an outstanding student in the math and science areas, which has allowed me to extend a helping hand to those around me who did not understand the subjects as well as I did. High school is where I found my passion for math and physics. People thought it was boring and meaningless, but I found it so fascinating and reasonable! My friends would hate the idea of talking about a math problem, but I could not help being intrigued by math problems and trying to find their solutions. That's the first thing that I think any teacher or tutor should have: a love for the subject. And I can assure you that I possess it. Otherwise, why on earth would I be studying mechanical engineering, right? :] The second quality that I believe a teacher should have is honesty. I remember being sent to an afterschool tutoring place during my 6th grade. Honestly, all I can remember from that place is playing handball and computer games all day. And this was supposed to be a tutoring place! And they were charging for that service! At the time, I was too young to realize it. But as I look back, I am outraged at the lack of honesty in their work. How can they take advantage of parents and steal money like that? It was unbelievable. I told myself that if I became a tutor, I would have utmost honesty and respect towards those requesting my service. So why should I tutor your kids (or you, if you are a self-motivated student looking for a tutor)? Because I will make sure that they learn. And if they do not, then I will not waste your time, their time, and your money. I will teach them what I know. If they want to learn and are willing to listen, there will be results. If they are unwilling, I will not simply sit there and pretend to teach them, while stealing away all your hard earned money. I will tell you that your kid is unwilling to learn and that you should probably not waste your money on me. Honesty.
I truly hope that you will consider me and give me an opportunity to help you or your children out.
Thank you for taking your time to read all this :]
