## Great help so far!

Mary, 22 lessons with DanielDaniel is a great tutor and he’s helping clarify concepts in Honors Chem! He’s friendly and easy to work with.

Hi, I'm Daniel and I graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Biochemistry. Throughout college I volunteered as a tutor for the AVID program at a local high school. It was this experience that ignited my passion for coaching students academically. I currently work with students of all ages, from elementary grades to college. I tutor honors and AP students as much as remedial students.

What can students expect from me at a lesson?

I take pride in providing the highest quality teaching. I only...

I am a bit of a grammarian. I used to edit ad copy for newspaper print advertisement. I have a keen eye for subject-verb agreement, run-on sentences, the various tenses, and punctuation.

Study Skills,

Educate. Encourage. Empower. My goal is to supply students with the tools they need to become self-sufficient and better independent learners. Good study skills start with having a plan and strong organization. I show students how to keep organized binders so that they maintain their homework, notes, and quizzes for each class. I show how to maintain a record of homework assignments and exam dates. I'll check that students are using their planners on a regular basis. For an upcoming exam, I help students plan their study time so that they are prepared well before test day. I can provide training sessions for students to learn techniques of good note-taking, both for learning at home and in the classroom. Additionally, I can recommend students ways to maximize their study time by considering their environment, time, and extracurricular commitments. With repeated practice, students find these techniques become second nature and their studying becomes more efficient.

I combine a combination of test taking technique with subject-specific content to help you score your highest on the English section of the ACT. Together, we will visit topics in English language that school courses rarely address. You will learn something meaningful that will help you beyond just this test and will use the knowledge for the rest of your life.

Active reading is a useful skill for life. I had to overcome my own test anxiety and discovered some techniques that improved my reading. These are things that anyone can employ and they will help you in any critical reading situation. My reading techniques are easy but require practice.

SAT Reading,
#### SAT Reading

My approach starts with teaching students how to accurately interpret questions. Often the wording makes an objective question sound more open-ended than it actually is, and I teach students how to look through these tricks. Additionally, I focus on practical strategies and teach how to approach specific questions that commonly appear on the test. These test-taking skills and techniques can help improve time and accuracy.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

This course is a foundation to all future math and natural sciences courses. I won an award in middle school for academic achievement in this subject. I help several students in this course on a regular basis. My lessons include demonstration and then letting the student test his or her own mastery. Together we'll master foundational concepts, such as solving for variables, interpreting and manipulating equations (standard form, point-slope form, slope-intercept form), factoring, and more.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

This class builds upon previous study in manipulating variables and is often taught in conjunction with trigonometry. I distill some of the tougher concepts (e.g. conic sections, systems of equations, polynomials, rational expressions) to simple steps and processes. Then I progress to working slightly more challenging examples.

Biology,
#### Biology

Having studied biochemistry at the university, I completed several life sciences classes. At UCLA I completed biology courses in cells & tissues, genetics, molecular biology, and microbiology.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

I completed two years of calculus at UCLA, including multivariable calculus. I scored a 5, the highest score possible, on the AP Calculus exam in high school. Whether you are just beginning or you already have some knowledge in calculus, I will help you develop the thinking and skills you'll need for this advanced subject. I also offer lessons to bridge the gap for students who have completed precalculus and want to get ahead so they are fully prepared for their first course in calculus.

Chemistry,
#### Chemistry

I completed general and organic chemistry for my undergraduate degree, as well as some specialized courses in physical chemistry and inorganic chemistry. I am very familiar with the concepts that high school and college classes cover. Where necessary, I break down the lessons into two areas of focus: conceptual study and calculations. Usually students struggle to do both at the same time, but when I show each concept on its own the material becomes easier to digest. I teach this subject on a regular basis, including AP chemistry and college levels.

Geometry,
#### Geometry

I have tutored many high school students in geometry. Geometry tests students' spatial skills and logic. There are a number of theorems and postulates to understand and learn. I emphasize learning over memorizing in order to encourage critical thinking and problem solving sills.

Physics,
#### Physics

Physics is a tricky subject for any student. At first, equations and problems may seem daunting. I find that students understand better when they break down a problem into components. My approach is to help students THINK, to translate words into mathematical equations, and to show other applications of the concepts.

Piano,
#### Piano

I studied piano with a private teacher for over 10 years. I am an avid performer and teacher. I also took college-level music classes in theory, musicianship, and performance.

Prealgebra,
#### Prealgebra

Middle school students and adult students will benefit from receiving tutoring in prealgebra. It's the culmination of all arithmetic. A strong background in prealgebra will set up students for success in algebra I.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

Some schools call this course Math Analysis. A big part of this class is to master concepts of polynomials and trigonometry. I like to relate this subject material to real world applications so that students see the importance of learning the content. I also offer perspective of what comes next for the students planning to proceed to calculus. The content will prepare students for future coursework in statistics and calculus.

ACT Math,
#### ACT Math

I recommend students to wait until 2nd semester of Algebra 2 before taking the ACT. If you have to take the exam before then, I will teach you the content that you would have missed from not completing the class in school. This is not impossible, but will require the student to be attentive to learning something new. Luckily, I divide the teaching into understandable sections. If you have already taking Algebra 2 in school, I offer tutoring to fill in the gaps of subjects you might have forgotten or need to brush up on.

Trigonometry,
#### Trigonometry

This subject is often combined with Algebra 2. Some students will have an early introduction when they study geometry, but the material goes beyond that. Understanding proofs and identities will be critical. I have a novel way of teaching students to understand radian measures and the unit circle. A strong foundation is trigonometry is essential for future studies in precalculus and calculus.

ACT Science,
#### ACT Science

The science section of the ACT has nothing to do with your knowledge of the sciences. It does contain technical reading and you will be required to think scientifically, that is, interpret data and make conclusions. I will show you how to interpret charts and data. I will point out common patterns and favorite questions that always appear in this section of the ACT.

Anatomy,
#### Anatomy

I completed anatomy and physiology classes at the college level. Human biology is one of the most fascinating subjects in the life sciences. Students find this class is very fun once they understand how it applies directly to their own lives. There is much to memorize, but I have study tools to help with that. Additionally, my goal in teaching is to first present course material in a way that's easily understood, then demonstrate how the information applies to everyday life and modern research.
