About Daniel

Hello!

My name is Dan, and I am a 23-year-old writer living in Berkeley, CA.

I recently graduated from Northeastern University in Boston, MA with a BA degree in English Literature and Philosophy. I also spent a semester studying comparative literature in Paris at the American University of Paris.

While stories and language fascinate me, it is ultimately the desire to discover new modes of experience and knowledge that led me first to study literature, and now to become a tutor. A dynamic understanding of language, whether it is the language of fiction, music, or mathematics, allows an individual to simultaneously explore and manage his or her surrounding world. Therefore, I am interested in working with students to 'learn' material through creative and challenging approaches, asking them to consider the meaning of what they are learning just as much as the numbers and words themselves. What good is knowledge if it is not a means for discovering life and the world that surrounds us?

I am also an active jazz and rock drummer, performing in several bay-area bands and projects. I am disciplined in both formal approaches to percussion, such as reading music, and in methods of improvisation. I am happy to share any of my skills
