My name is Daniel and I have worked in SF public schools for about four years as a classroom para-professional. I have also taught academic summer programs in math. I truly enjoy teaching and sharing knowledge with people, especially students.
I studied music for most of my young life and attended a well known music college in my first higher education experience. I did not complete that degree, but moved into the field of education, and finally ended up with a BS in Physics from SFSU.
My most recent professional work is as a scientific programmer in a UCSF brain studies laboratory. Since my position has been consolidated, I decided to return to school myself, to continue further expand my skill set and hope to return to work next year.
My skill areas for tutoring are, introductory physics, trigonometry/geometry, calculus, algebra and computer programming. I am fluent with the industry standard scientific language MATLAB and currently using Python ( numpy ) and learning the R language ( statistical standard ).
Since I came into the sciences later in life, I feel that I can connect to students who are struggling to grasp the lexigraphic ideas as well as the real world meaning of the math. Physics is a great field to be exposed to, if one is required to study algebra, since it puts abstract concepts into physical settings.
