Thank you to all my students, for continually allowing me to enhance your mathematics experience, and for rating me 5 out of 5 stars every time!

I've had many math professors throughout undergrad and graduate school and I've found that, although they all know what they're talking about and are all very intelligent, what makes a math teacher great is understanding that not everyone understands things the same way he/she does. Throughout my years tutoring all levels of mathematics, I have developed the ability to readily explore several different viewpoints and methods to help students fully grasp the subject matter. I can present the material in many different ways until we find an approach that works and he/she really starts to understand. Nothing gives me a greater thrill than the look of relief on a student's face when he/she actually starts to get it and realizes that it isn't as difficult as was previously believed.

I have a Master of Science degree in mathematics (analytic number theory), over ten years' experience as a math tutor and over three years' experience as an actuary, and am a member of MENSA. I am highly committed to students' performances and to improve their comprehension of all areas of mathematics.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Actuarial Science

I worked for close to three years as a pension actuary and have passed the first three exams given by the Society of Actuaries, which rigorously cover such topics as calculus, probability, interest theory, modeling, and financial derivatives.

Differential Equations

I have excelled in courses in Ordinary Differential Equations in both undergraduate and graduate school, as well as partial differential equations at the graduate level. Also, I have tutored students in ODE's for over ten years.

Linear Algebra

I have passed the University of Pittsburgh's PhD preliminary exam in linear algebra, and my Master's thesis investigated a recent approach to the Riemann Hypothesis involving convergence in an infinite-dimensional linear space. Also, I have tutored all levels of linear algebra for over ten years.

By the Binomial Theorem, [2x-(1/2x)]^6 can be expanded to the sum as k goes from zero to 6 of (6 choose k)×(2x)k×(-1/2x)6-k.   The only time we will be left with an x2 term is when k=4, since we'll have some coefficient multiplied by x4/x2.  So, we'll have (6 choose 4) × (2x)4×(-1/2x)2,...

Great Math Tutor — We found Daniel's first tutoring session with our son to be excellent. The two of them quickly became comfortable with each other and launched into multiple math topics. In one session, Daniel worked with our son on algebraic equations, introduced logarithms, briefly touched on the idea that there are different types of infinity, and engaged in a great discussion about modular math (our son's curr ...
