About Daniel

I went to UC Berkeley for a B.A. in Sociology. I'm currently applying for graduate programs in computer science. I've tutored in various subjects for years, including test-based tutoring (such as the SAT and GRE) as well as general tutoring - help through the course of a year or semester in Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, etc. I've worked with students of all ages, from teaching elementary and middle school students basic math to working with local high school students on geometry and calculus courses and SATs to helping local college students on their math curricula.

In addition to my tutoring experience, I received formal tutor training in effective tutoring methods at the San Diego Miramar College. I received 800's on both my SAT I and SAT II Math, and scored in the 90th percentile on the GRE Quantitative section. Although I am proficient in various subjects, mathematics is my favorite subject to tutor.

I love teaching because helping students improve and achieve their academic goals is very rewarding. I strive to help students become independent learners through building their confidence in mastering the material. I engage and motivate students to master the material through providing positive feedback. I actively seek feedback to tailor my teaching approach to the student's unique learning preference. I encourage strong study habits and foster confidence that the students will retain throughout their academic careers and beyond.

I look forward to speaking with you more about your learning and studying needs!

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

Algebra 1 lays the foundation for the majority of math and science classes students will take in high school and college. I help students understand the principles involved and build confidence in their skills an abilities. I observe the students' problem solving process and provide constructive feedback. My goal is to make learning the material easy and enjoyable.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 builds on the foundation of Algebra 1 and covers more complex topics such as trigonometry, advanced function analysis, and provides the foundation for calculus. I help students understand the principles involved and build confidence in their skills an abilities. I observe the students' problem solving process and provide constructive feedback. My goal is to make learning the material easy and enjoyable.

ASVAB

I have extensive experience tutoring the SATs, which is similar to the ASVAB, as well as tutoring a marine specifically in the ASVAB. In teaching the ASVAB, I rely heavily on taking actual practice tests from the numerous study materials available for the test.

Calculus

I've tutored Calculus and Precalculus for many years to high school and college students, including topics such as derivatives, integrals, limits, and graphing. I took five years of Calculus, including Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations.

College Counseling

I have experience providing college counseling to many middle- and high school students. Having gone through the process of applying to many private and UC schools--and being accepted to UC Berkeley--I have a lot of knowledge of the insides and outs of getting into the best college.

Common Core

I have extensive experience tutoring high school students based on the Common Core curricula, including mathematics and science.

Differential Equations

I took AP Calculus AB and BC at Westview high with all A's and 5's on the AP exam, as well as third semester calculus (Multivariable Calculus) at UC Berkeley. I have extensive experience tutoring high school and college students, and I tutored Calculus at the PLACE in Miramar college.

Discrete Math

I completed Discreet Mathematics with a grade of "A", and I am very familiar with the topics related to the subject.

ESL/ESOL

As an immigrant, I was in ESL myself in middle school. I learned English in just over a year and was accepted to UC Berkeley, where I majored in Sociology, an English-intensive subject. I have experience teaching English and ESL to elementary and middle school children for many years.

GED

I have tutored the GED many times to students of all ages, and helped them pass the test and the sections for which they needed help, including refreshing their knowledge on the writing, social studies, mathematics, and science sections.

Geometry

I have experience teaching geometry concepts to many children and older students. I present the material in an easy-to-understand fashion, and make sure to make the process enjoyable. I make sure that students understand how to translate word problems into equations, definitions of geometric terms, proofs, and theorems.

GRE

I have scored in the 90th percentile on the Quantitative section of the GRE, and have helped many students improve their scores on the GRE.

Physics

I took regular and Advanced Placement Physics in high school with all A's. I also took the SAT II Physics Subject Test.

Precalculus

I've tutored Calculus and Precalculus for many years to high school and college students, including topics such as derivatives, integrals, limits, conics, and graphing. I took five years of Calculus, including Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations.

Russian

I am a native Russian speaker who came to the United States over ten years ago. I learned English in one year and was accepted to UC Berkeley two years later. I have six months experience translating between Russian and English in the business sector, as well as over a year of experience tutoring Russian to K-12 and college students.

SAT Math

I received 800 on both the SAT I Math and SAT II Math sections, and I tutored high school students in SAT Math for many year.

SAT Writing

My score was in the 93rd percentile for SAT I Writing.

Sociology

I received a B.A. in Sociology from UC Berkeley.

Statistics

I have tutored statistics many times to both high school and college students.

Trigonometry

I have tutored trigonometry many times and helped students see different approaches and real life applications of trigonometry and understand the subject easier.

Writing

I majored from UC Berkeley in Sociology and have written numerous school papers and articles of various nature. I have also taught writing to many students from middle school to college.
