Hi! My name is Dan, and I love helping students to improve in Math and Science. I attended U.C. Santa Barbara, ranked 33rd in the World's Top 200 Universities (2013), and graduated with a degree in Communication. I've been tutoring for the past 9 years and have worked with students at many different levels.
My unique approach to tutoring involves working with each student according to their individual learning style. My background in communication allows me to help students understand their course material in a way that makes sense to them as an individual.
If you're a student struggling in a particular course, I'll help you identify the areas of improvement and strengthen those while also keeping up with your current course material. If you're a student who is already doing well but would still like to improve, I'll work with you to fine tune your understanding of the material so you can excel.
I have worked with several ADHD diagnosed students (ages 8-22) and successfully provided assistance to them. I work full time as an education technology consultant and part of my job has been doing adequate research of ADD/ADHD. I have a well established technique that helps these struggling students regain their focus for extended periods of time. By first developing a relationship of trust with each student, we can work together to also improve their overall attitude toward school, learning and homework.
I have extensive experience with note taking and organization while attending a top tier university. Since then, I've helped several students develop methods to become organized and empowered to direct themselves effectively through school. Trying out various tools such as the Cornell note-taking method and the 2 week rule to create a relaxed study rhythm, will allow us to discover what makes the most sense for an individual student before we practice implementing and developing these remarkably effective habits for academic success.
Great tutor! Helpful at explaining concepts! — After just one session, my daughter was feeling more confident and happy about math. There were concepts and equations that she was not fully understanding, so having the opportunity to review them one on one with Dan was extremely helpful. ...
