UC Berkeley (B.S. Mathematics)
University of Michigan (J.D.)
I've been tutoring math for the last 20 years. My style of tutoring depends on your goals. If you need to prepare for a specific exam, need help with a homework assignment or want some support and clarification for an entire semester, I'm your man. I graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a Bachelor's Degree in mathematics applied to statistics. I am currently an adjunct instructor at Gateway Community College. Give me a call because I would love to help. I'll simplify the math for you and maybe even make it fun. (Getting an A is always fun,...right?)

I've only had one session so far, but felt very comfortable and encouraged. Sometimes, I wouldn't know where to start on a problem and he helped me through every step without making me feel stupid. I even hurt my arm the night before our first session and was in a sling. He wrote everything for me as I asked him to - he literally was my right hand! Talk about going above and beyond. I'll continue to work with him through the end of this course.
Daniel was very helpful in helping me understand some concepts in my algebra II class that I was struggling to understand. He was very patient and took his time helping me.
By the time he left, I definitely felt like I understood the material and I am ready to take my test in school. Will definitely call him back if I find myself needing more help! Thanks Daniel!
Dan is a great tutor and very friendly. I've enjoyed working with him and look forward to passing my ACT in the spring with his help!
Daniel does a wonderful job helping my son grasp math concepts and processes. We entered 7th grade with apprehension that he would not be ready and fall behind. With Daniels tutoring sessions it helps my som cruise through his math week with confidence. It is nice to see him successful and excited instead of stressed about math! Thank you Daniel for being such a wonderful resource for my son! He really enjoys your time together!
Daniel did such a great job with our son. He turned him around in just a short time and really connected with him. Our son commented, wow - he is really smart and makes math a lot more fun that I thought. His grades immediately reflected the efforts of Daniel. He had a great sense of humor, was patient and tried to make it easy to understand. We cannot thank him enough.
I didn't contact Daniel until about a week and a half before my algebra final. I still had a chapter test to get through on top of it all. I had my reservations about him understanding the material because of a prior bad experience (with a different tutor) but he completely understood the material. I had failed 3 tests before meeting with him but even in the insane crunch of finals, he was easy to get a hold of and helped me to pass both my chapter test and my final when I was literally hanging on by a thread. He's EXTREMELY knowledgeable, easy to work with, and has a great sense of humor which I feel makes math a little more enjoyable! I would recommend Daniel to any of my friends and family!!
Daniel is a great Math teacher for both A and B students. I have been spending a long time to locate a good math teacher in the east valley for my daughter. After working with Daniel, her knowledge of math and skill of calculation both improved significantly. If your child is looking for ways to excel in math. I suggest you to write to Daniel. He will develop a customized plan for her/him. It works!
Daniel is very kind and very patient. He used different strategies in order to help me improved my math skills. I can say that learning math used to be tricky and frustrating for me ,but right now I am having fun with it and enjoy learning it because of him.
I had three sessions with Dan and my test score improved dramatically. Before meeting with Dan I scored a 63 out of 120 on my test. After only 3 sessions I scored a 111 out of 120. It was well worth it and I am very pleased. Dan was very easy to work with, quickly understood my strengths and weaknesses, and obviously helped me improve my score. I will use him again in the future if I need I need a tutor again.
Danny has been working with my son a little over a week now in math and we have already seen improvements. Danny is able to explain problems in terms to help my son understand the concept. My son is gaining more confidence and his math grade is improving. Thank you Danny!
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.
Topics covered include: Linear behavior; linear equations and inequalities in one and two variables; graphs; systems of equations in two variables; function notation, graphs, and data tables; operations on polynomials; properties of exponents; and applications.
Algebra 2 covers all of the following topics:
1. Solve linear equations for specified variables. (I)
2. Model and solve real-world problems using linear equations. (I)
3. Find the slope of a line and the equation of a line. (I)
4. Factor polynomial expressions. (II)
5. Solve real-world problems involving parabolas, exponential and logarithmic functions. (II, VIII)
6. Graph lines, parabolas, exponential, and logarithmic functions. (I, VIII)
7. Use the eleven field properties of the set of real numbers. (II, IV)
8. Solve quadratic equations by factoring, completing the square, and the quadratic formula. (II)
9. Solve quadratic and absolute value inequalities. (II, III)
10. Solve radical equations and equations quadratic in form. (II, V)
11. Add, subtract, multiply, and divide complex numbers. (IV)

Elementary mathematics includes addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; performing order of operations working with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, integers and rational numbers; estimating and rounding; evaluate arithmetic expressions involving exponents and square roots; convert between decimals, fractions and percents; construct and interpret line, bar and circle graphs; determine and interpret mean, median and mode for a set of data; read and interpret measurement scales; identify and interpret geometric figures and calculate perimeters and areas for each figure; model and solve application/real world problems; convert within and between U.S. and metric measurement systems.
Geometry includes an in-depth analysis of plane, solid, and coordinate geometry as they relate to both abstract mathematical concepts as well as real-world problem situations. Topics include logic and proof, parallel lines and polygons, perimeter and area analysis, volume and surface area analysis, similarity and congruence, trigonometry, and analytic geometry. Emphasis will be placed on developing critical thinking skills as they relate to logical reasoning and argument. Students will be required to use different technological tools and manipulatives to discover and explain much of the course content.
The math sections of the SAT measure a student’s ability to reason quantitatively, solve mathematical problems, and interpret data presented in graphical form. These sections focus on four areas of mathematics that are typically covered in the first three years of American high school education: Arithmetic, Algebra and Functions, Geometry, and Data Analysis. The Algebra section was recently expanded to include basic College Algebra. To test these skills, the SAT employs two different question types:
The multiple-choice questions carry a .25-point penalty for incorrect answers. The grid-in questions carry no penalty for wrong answers, because the likelihood of guessing the correct answer is negligible.
The format of the three sections is:
•25 minutes: 20 Multiple-Choice questions
•25 minutes: 8 Multiple-Choice questions followed by 10 Grid-ins.
•20 minutes: 16 Multiple-Choice questions
