About Dan

Hello, my name is Dan. Pleased to e-meet you! I am a graduate of Northwestern University and currently reside in Silver Lake. I have interned with the not-for-profit tutoring organization 826LA, worked for 5 years tutoring the ACT, SAT and SAT II's with Revolution Prep and ArborBridge, and belong to an organization called Story Pirates which goes into elementary schools to teach writing and encourage creativity in kids. In addition, I have worked as a private tutor in subjects as diverse as second grade math, adult ESL and college counseling.

I know how to get results. When I worked for test prep companies, I routinely was in the top 1% company-wide in score increases. I am very good at figuring out quickly and effortlessly a student's preferred mode of learning and adapting my lessons accordingly. If a student is a 8th grade girl who is a high-achieving visual learner, she should not be taught the same way as a 10th grade boy who's a kinesthetic learner and has ADHD, even if they're both learning algebra.

I find students learn best when they genuinely like who they're learning from, when they're fully engaged and interested, and when the lessons can be entertaining. In that regard, I am very well-suited, as I am an actor and improviser in addition to my tutoring pursuits. I am good at keeping attentions high as I have been formally trained how to do so!

I also have a large well of patience, which I've found to be the most important quality of all.

Let me know if you have any further questions, otherwise, I can't wait to get to work with you!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary school students in creative writing for the last three years. In addition, I have provided homework help and study skills assistance for elementary school students with 826LA in both Venice and Echo Park.
