About Dan

Hello! My name is Dan, and I'm an engineer who would love to help you with your math, science, or engineering problems.

My background is in optical engineering, a branch of science related to lenses, telescopes, lasers, and other awesome engineering! I have been working in the industry for approximately ten years, and know this requires a lot of underpinning in the basics such as math and physics.

I have previously tutored many individuals, in subjects from English to Science, and have run elementary school outreach events, high school study groups, and associate taught college level classes.

I have always enjoyed dealing with math problems and working together with others to solve their problems. There is not just one way to work through most problems, and I will help you find a method of understanding that works for you.

I have worked in the engineering industry in aerospace, manufacturing, and lasers engineering for nearly a decade. All of this has taught me the value of understanding the physical reasons why the world around us behaves like it does. Physics can be a large, intimidating subject, but tying many problems to real world applications and sorting out what is and is not important can remove this intimidation. A little confidence can go a long way, and success is the best way to build confidence.

I have a very easygoing personality, and want to see people succeed. Success comes from belief that you CAN succeed, and that is best done in a comfortable and trusting environment. I'd love for you to contact me so I can see if we'd be a good fit. I am very flexible on times and frequency, so let me know how I can best help you.
