Congratulations on your decision to understand a subject that isn’t easy. When I was in my first years of college I found the professors were talking way over my head. In tutors I found people who weren’t as intimidating as a professor, spoke in plain English and were far more accessible.

Congratulations on your decision to understand a subject that isn’t easy. When I was in my first years of college I found the professors were talking way over my head. In tutors I found people who weren’t as intimidating as a professor, spoke in plain English and were far more accessible.
Your education in the various branches of mathematics and the sciences can be a wonderful experience. You will learn some rules and get some results but the most important thing you will learn is the technique to find the answer.

We develop an understanding of a problem. What is it we’re looking for? What are some techniques that could give us the answer? Then we solve the problem. Using the techniques we just learned we solve another similar problem. You will find that the more problems you solve, the better you will get in a math or science course.

Most importantly, don’t be afraid of making mistakes. From every mistake take the lesson from it and the next time a similar problem comes up you won’t make it again.

I was a math major at Victorville Community college. I tutored there for 2 semesters in physics. From there I went on to Cal Poly Pomona as an Aerospace Engineering major. Often I found that the root of a problem of understanding a mathematical or physics concept lay in having nothing in the students prior life experience to relate the concept to. I have an ability to cut through the confusion and clutter and explain by analogy concepts that at first appear both daunting and challenging.

Statistics

Statistics

A classical definition of statistics says that we are using an analysis and interpretation of numerical data in terms of samples and population. This implies we can predict the future and has a many practical applications. You’ll study topics like normal distribution, confidence intervals and hypothesis testing and learn how to make predictions based on your analysis of the data. It’s a fun course.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

In Algebra 1 you will move on to begin to make mathematical statements to describe the relationships between things that vary over time. The mathematical statements are called equations with symbols lie an x or a y that stand for some unknown number. Solving the equation means you found out what the number should be to make the equation true
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

In Algebra II you will work with equations involving exponents and radicals, solve more equations, make graphs of functions and begin to work with logarithmic and exponential functions. You will solve problems of systems of equations, imaginary numbers and inequalities. Sequences and series may be a part of your course as well. Don’t worry about what all the terms mean. By working with them you will become familiar with what they do.
Calculus,

Calculus

There are two main divisions in calculus. First we will study differentiation or taking the limit and later integration which is essentially an adding up. One is said to be the inverse of the other. Your studies in calculus will require skills in trigonometry, algebra and geometry. It requires more than one semester to gain insight into its workings. So what’s it good for? Well without it we have no way of figuring a lot of things out to make predictions. There are applications of calculus in virtually every description of every natural phenomenon in the universe.
Geometry,

Geometry

You’ll use and understand concepts such as symmetry, congruency, similarity, scale, perspective, and angles to describe and analyze two- and three-dimensional shapes found in practical applications. You’ll study the properties and relationships of points, lines,angles, curves, surfaces and solids. Also you'll begin to acquire some insight into postulates and proofs.
Physics,

Physics

I tutored college level Physics while in college myself so I have a feel for the pitfalls students encounter taking the course.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

In Pre-algebra you will cover several broad subjects. We will review natural numbers, integers, fractions, negative numbers and the properties of operations. You will learn about variables, exponentiation and the basic rules of equations.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Pre-Calculus will prepare you for your first calculus course. Using the algebra, trigonometry and geometry you learned in other courses you begin to solve problems involving vector, parametric equations, polar coordinates and matrices just to name a few. The concept of the limit is introduced.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

For SAT math we work on skills with basic math, exponential and scientific notation and identification of rules describing numerical patterns in a sequence. We also work on skills involving probability, Statistics and some basic Algebra

Astronomy

In your study of astronomy you will use a blend of Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics to try to make sense of and come to an understanding of the universe. You will learn that the visible light spectrum is only a small part of the information. The infrared, ultraviolet and x-ray views give a more complete story.

A Great Tutor

Daniel S. helped me understand all of the problems on my homework and explained all of questions I had to come. He made sure I understood what he was reteaching me. Overall he was a great tutor and I would definitely have him tutor me again.

April, 2 lessons with Daniel

Great Tutor

We worked on Stats. We went through homework that I was struggling with and walked through the problems. I was very helpful to talk about the solution out loud. Daniel was very nice and easy to work with. I left feeling much more confident about my class.

Kristie, 1 lesson with Daniel

Positive and Encouraging Tutor

Lessons were prepared ahead of time making the actual teaching time efficient. Work that was presented was reviewed and then the remaining problems became homework . This method ensured that my daughter could do the work independently and without frustration as the problems reviewed and completed earlier in the day were there for her to refer to. Dan was positive and encouraging with my daughter.

Lauren, 12 lessons with Daniel

Very skilled tutor!

Daniel made it really comfortable and easy to learn. He has a way of teaching that is so simple to catch on quick! He comes prepared and ready to teach. He explains in a way that is not too deep, but simply so you can understand.

Tamika, 4 lessons with Daniel

Patient

He taught me statistics, he was always punctual, flexible and patient. We did it via phone and he was very clear and helpful in his instructions. I give him five stars!!

Jenae, 10 lessons with Daniel

Knowledgeable and very patient

I was in a panic when Daniel began tutoring me. He came to my home and really listened to my frustrations about Statistics. Trust me, I was ready to quit. In feelimg much better and capable after only 2 sessions with Dan. I highly recommend Dan.

Terri, 5 lessons with Daniel

After only a few sessions, we feel confident that Daniel's help is going to increase our son's SAT scores! What a great guy!

Daniel has spent a lot of time reviewing our son's first not so good SAT results and his time with my son going over his mistakes has already helped! The best!

Diana, 5 lessons with Daniel

Great tutor

Very patient and very knowledgeable. Made me understand in 2 hours what I couldn't understand in four weeks of class. He makes everything so simple and easy, very good tutor.

Otis , 3 lessons with Daniel

Great Attitude

I found Daniel to be very personable with good tutoring skills. He has successfully been teaching my daughter the skills needed to solve her college math problems. Daniel is a great tutor and has made this whole tutoring experience pleasant. Thanks Daniel for your patience and good work!
