If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I will help my students learn how to solve problems, not just memorize facts and figures. Starting with an assessment of your current strengths and areas for improvement, I will put together a plan to improve your academic performance in the physical sciences or mathematics. My goal is to see you reach a personal "Aha! moment" during each session.

I have spent the past nine years teaching Chemistry and Physics (including Calculus-based AP Physics) to high school students, as well as six summers teaching enrichment courses in Chemistry and Physics. I hold MA licenses in Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry.

My undergraduate degree from MIT is in Physics, and I am completing my M. Ed. from AIC.

Excellent Tutor, Highly Recommend — We really enjoyed Dan as a tutor for my son. My son goes to a prep school and is in Honors Chemistry. We used Dan for 6 hours in prep for his year end final, which we understood to be a killer exam. Dan laid out a well organized plan and went through the topics in great detail. Even though my son was not struggling in the class, the additional insight and help was well worth the investment. In fac ...
