Northeastern University MA (Master's)
Hello! My name is Daniel. After gaining my Master's in Education through Northeastern University I worked as an English teacher in a therapeutic high school for students with social/emotional disabilities. Through helping educate these students who faced many challenges my understanding of how to help someone learn grew immensely. In other words, through tailoring educational materials to meet the needs of those who struggle the most, the overall quality of education is improved for all. This concept is known as Universal Design and I hold in central to my teaching practices. Furthermore I understand how there are a vast range of learning styles, and I am strength-based when it comes to helping the individual.
I also gained experience with one on one education through our daily guided-study period, and mentored several students each year, not only helping them with daily academic tasks, but also helping develop executive functioning skills and study habits for long term goals of improving as an overall student. I enjoy working one on one because it allows the opportunity to build on strengths, discover learning styles, and build a foundation of skills which will be beneficial across all the disciplines.
I have since moved on from working in high schools and now work for a family therapy
I am a long time appreciator of reading and writing, and have always enjoyed the process of unpacking the many elements contained within a piece of literature, and developing a well written composition, be it prose, expository, research based, or creative.
I believe writing is a process which while having essential foundational components, the process must be tailored to how the individual works. I believe writing is a one of the most important skills a student can develop because not only is it continually useful in education, employment, and social communication, but also it improves the way one thinks, problem solves, and develops ideas.
I have a wide range of strategies for all stages of the writing process for all types of writers, including pre-writing, drafting, and revision for well established writers and reluctant writers, and anywhere in between.
Please contact me if you are looking for any help with your ELA classes! I believe everyone is capable of being successful, and work not only to achieve grades, but also appreciation of the craft. I will meet you where you are at with your educational needs, and help you set goals and progress. I look forward to working with you! Hello! My name is Daniel.

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.
