About Daniel

Thank you for your interest and reading about my tutoring capabilities and background!

I worked in the international student exchange field in San Francisco counseling foreign and American exchange students. While counseling students, I also developed training, marketing and policy and procedure materials for a new study abroad program. In order to be closer to my family, I moved to Chico in 1995 and opened a restaurant that I owned and operated for nine years. I sold this business in 2005 and became an insurance agent and continue to work in this industry. I am also a musician, musical instrument hardware designer and avid car restoration enthusiast.

Throughout my educational and business experiences, I have always excelled in the area of English and writing whether it be business, creative or essay. I strive to teach students to write in sentences that are well constructed and flow smoothly. I also believe in minimizing "word fat" so the reader develops a clear understanding of the subject as efficiently as possible.

I do not expect students to share my opinion on subject matter but I do expect students to support their assertions and to write with deliberation and soul. My personality/tutoring style is easy-going. I try to encourage students by highlighting their writing strengths and building upon them. Writing can be a very personal thing and care must be taken not to teach by negative reinforcement.

Thanks again for reading my profile. Good luck with your learning endeavors!
