About Daniel

I was educated in Scotland and received Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Italy.

I was involved in counseling, education and social work for a number of years in Scotland before teaching English as a Foreign Language in France, in a private College (Ecole Superieure d'Informatique, Montreuil), and in the University of Raspail, Paris).

I have taught High School in Hawaii, where I was employed by the State of Hawaii Department of Education, as well as the University of Hawaii-Hilo to provide counseling and education to minority and at-risk adolescents. I also counseled adults there including many whose primary language was other than English.

I have always established a good relationship with individuals from a variety of cultures, and my teaching style is informal but structured: I begin the relationship with the student at the point they are currently at in their understanding and competence, building towards increasing their knowledge and comprehension. My international education and experience has helped me to be very open to individuals from other cultures and background. My English language skills are excellent.

I am currently a tutor at an international language college in Los Angeles, where I teach students from numerous countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle East.

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.

ADHD

I have more than 15 years experience of working with both adults and adolescents with ADD/ADHD, and have worked under the supervision of a Board-certified psychiatrist and psychologist throughout that time.

My professional experience has also included working with individuals who are dually-diagnosed (co-morbidity), normally dealing with chemical dependency and other diagnoses, including both ADD and ADHD.

English

I have tutored and taught English to Intermediate and High School students, as well as to university and business clients and managers in both Europe and the USA.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught English as a Foreign Language and English as a Second Language at University level in Paris, France.

Special Needs

For over 20 years, I have counseled and worked with both adolescents and adults who have been dualy-diagnosed (co-morbidity). I have worked under the direct supervision of a Board-Certified psychiatrist who is qualified to make such diagnoses.

I have a Master's degree in divinity (including psychology), and I am a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) which certification assesses the ability to work with individuals who have one or more disabilities.

I have completed classes and training in all of the above disciplines.
