About Dan

I am a teacher with over twenty years of experience in the high school classroom. Every year but one of these has been working with gifted populations and I have instructed IB English at the 11th and 12th grades having taught both the AP Language and Literature and AP Language and Composition tests. During that time I have consistently had an AP passing rate (3 or higher) of over 75% and a credit earning rate (4 or 5) of nearly 50%. This is while teaching an open application AP classroom (there is not entrance exam for my class) and testing over 60% of my students every year. I have attended numerous AP and IB workshops and am currently in the process of applying to be an AP grader. In addition to this I have instructed students in strategies for the AIMS test, as well as ACT and SAT reading and writing tests.

My experience is much more than testing however. I have extensive knowledge of American Literature (For my Masters’ Degree I wrote a thesis on the fiction of John Steinbeck) as well as experience teaching English and some African literature as well. I have designed grading rubrics for both narrative and evidence-based writing currently used throughout my school’s English department and have been behind the implementation of other strategies and initiatives in our writing curriculum. All of this comes from working with students from all levels of 10th through 12th grades while always maintain enthusiasm for both subject matter and student learning. I hope that I have the opportunity to demonstrate to you, first hand, my knowledge and expertise.

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.

Public Speaking

I instructed speech and debate at a local high school for five years. We participated in numerous speaking and debate events at competitions throughout the state. Two of my students during this time qualified for the national competition. I judged an assortment of events, gaining exposure to a range of speaking tasks and situations.
