About Daniel

I have a B.A. from UC Berkeley and a M.S. from Ohio state University. Both are in Mathematics. I am pretty thorough in solving problems and will provide anything necessary to help you succeed in Math. This is my 4th year tutoring. If possible, the first hour charge can be waived for students to see if they like my teaching and if they learn from my teaching. I have a B.A. from UC Berkeley and a M.S. from Ohio state University.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have degree in math from UC Berkeley.

Calculus

I have been a Calculus teacher in Ohio State University when I was in the math Master Degree Program. I have years of experience in teaching Calculus.

Chinese

I am a native speaker of Mandarine Chinese. I finished High School in Taiwan and then after 2 years in obligatory military service I came to US to study for college. I am an immigrant. I attended UC Berkeley and got a bachelor degree in Math. I speak fluently in Mandarine Chinese and well versed in written Chinese too.

Differential Equations

I have an M.S. in Mathematics from Ohio State University. I have had experiences teaching Differential Equations to college students when I taught Differential Equations recitation classes to Engineer and Science majors as a TA at OSU. I know all the methods of Differential Equations plus tricks. I have also taken Differential Equations courses at undergraduate and graduate levels at UC Berkeley, where I got my bachelor's degree. In all the courses I took in the area of Differential Equations at Berkeley and OSU, I earned A's and B's. I can help students with difficulties in D.E., once I get the student's textbook and do some review.

Discrete Math

I took Discrete Math in graduate school for 3 quarters. I know most of the material in Discrete Math well. I got As and Bs in class.

Geometry

I have tutored about 10 students in the past and know the material.

Linear Algebra

I took Linear Algebra in my BA degree in math and I took the theoretical section. That is, it is intended for math majors. I got "A" in that course. My instructor was a visiting scholar and taught more theorems than other Linear Algebra sections.
They are many methods in this course. Something like triangulization of matrices requires one to understand the math underlined. There are also definitions in this course which are hard to grasped and applied. I forget some of the hard stuff, but I am confident after I review I am able to do the specific questions.

Precalculus

I have BA and MS degrees in math. I have known various precalculus functions and their applications well.

Patient and generous with knowledge — Daniel is a knowledgeable and patient tutor. I am taking an Algebra 1 class and I am struggling. Daniel helped me to understand slopes and graphing and equations. It is no easy task to teach someone who hasn't taken a math class in a very long time. I look forward to our continued work together and know that I will be a better student as a result of his skills and support. ...
