I am a recent PhD from UCLA in Comparative Literature, and a BA from Cornell University. I have taught for over seven years at the university level at UCLA as a primary instructor, and presently am a professor in World Literature at Long Beach State University, as well as a professor in Philosophy at The New Center for Research and Practice. I have full bilingual proficiency in Spanish and English, with years of experience tutoring at the high school and university level in writing, language, classics, literature, political science, and philosophy.

I believe that a good teacher must not only be knowledgeable, but capable of effectively communicating with their students. This requires patience and clarity of expression, so students don't feel intimidated by encountering new ideas or acquiring new skills. Learning should be an inviting, rewarding experience, but I know writing can be a daunting task for young students, who are in the process of developing critical thinking skills. I am more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

I was born in Virginia, and raised in Lima, Peru. I am a very approachable person, so don't hesitate to drop a word!

Very knowledgeable and helpful

I was very intimidated by the ideas of Noam Chomsky and thought I would never comprehend them. However, Daniel explained Chomsky’s political philosophy to me in a way that I understood! I am a much more enriched person for having met Daniel. Daniel is very knowledgeable yet was able to come down to my level and effectively teach!
