I am a Harvard-Westlake and USC graduate with over 15 years of tutoring experience. I am well-versed in a variety of math and science subjects, including PreAlgebra, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, AP Calculus AB, SAT, SAT II Math Level 2, ACT, and Computer Science. I enjoy inspiring students in all walks of life, from Junior High to College students, as well as adults who want to excel and learn.

I am proud to say that I have had helped students get into top universities like Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, UCLA, USC and many more.

I am a hardworking, passionate and engaging tutor who believes in Truth and First Principles. I believe hard work, consistency and fur are all required to move beyond your limits. I truly believe that each and every one of us has a destiny of excellence, but sometimes we need some guidance. I live off of inspiring people to be greater and strive for that myself. Greatness is not some esoteric idea. Like Aristotle said, "Excellence is not an act, but a habit." Expecting excellence from my students is how they succeed and in turn, they expect excellence from me. We all can synergistically allow ourselves to push the human condition forward.

Through tutoring, I have learned how to cater to the individual. There are many ways to come to the same conclusion, and I know that every single person is different. Therefore I adapt to my students to discover what is best for the individual. I don't believe in a specific "method" to teach but I believe in results. For example, I give my students customized quizzes to help them prepare for exams. Not everyone learns the same way, so how can everyone be taught the same way? I am adamant about students realizing not only their academic potential, but their life potential as well.

I am confident that my passion and experience are the qualities you are looking for in a tutor. I look forward to achieving greatness with all of you .

Knowledgeable, brilliant, pleasant. Our daughter Elle refers to Daniel as a math genius! There is virtually nothing that Daniel does not know about algebra!

Extremely helpful!

Daniel is a patient tutor who has really been of great assistance to my son in understanding the concepts of Algebra 2. My son has gained more confidence in his test-taking and overall comprehension -- this tutoring has been a great investment for us in helping our son finish his 11th grade year and we will definitely need his services in his senior year.
