About Daniel

Just moved from Boston to San Diego, South Park! Many happy students left behind :( but I'm excited to rebuild my tutoring/coaching business here (and escape the winter!) ;P

My name is Daniel, and I love helping students to improve in Math and Science. I attended U.C. Santa Barbara, ranked 33rd in the World's Top 200 Universities, and graduated with a degree in Communication. I've been tutoring for the past 9 years and have worked with students at many different levels.

My unique approach to tutoring involves working with each student according to their learning style, while also introducing new mental methods when appropriate. My background in communication allows me to help students understand their course material in a way that makes sense to them as an individual. Study habits and even homework, can be provided to fine tune and expand any desired skills or understandings.

If you're a student struggling in a particular course, I'll help you identify the areas of improvement and strengthen those while also keeping up with your current course material. If you're a student who already does well in school but would still like to improve or get caught up, I'll support you to understand and integrate the material at a much faster rate, relative to the pace of the classroom.

UPDATE: I've acquired a special learning program that exponentially facilitates the learning process in any subject area, for any student. I'm having incredible results using it myself, and with several of my current students. It's especially helpful for learning new material and for kids with reading/attention disorders.

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 worked with several ADHD diagnosed students (ages 8-22) and successfully provided assistance to them. I work full time as an education technology consultant and part of my job has been doing adequate research of ADD/ADHD. I have a well established technique that helps these struggling students regain their focus for extended periods of time. By first developing a relationship of trust with each student, we can work together to also improve their overall attitude toward school, learning and homework.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is my favorite subject to teach. It's complex at times, but the simplicity is also there. So, I take great care to slowly cover each relevant concept, so my student really understands the the tools needed to solve any Algebra 2 problem, themselves...and not just once!

Dyslexia

Dyslexia as defined by our mainstream culture is not curable. I don't see this issue through that lens. There is a deeper understanding to be held. I have helped many kids slow down and retrain "problem words" to ultimately write and speak with the confidence they were meant to have.

Prealgebra

Foundational mathematic relationships is at the core of higher cognitive reasoning. We want to ensure that each component, every operation, is understood so that we can be at the cutting edge of processing information. nothing establishes more self-esteem than this in a peer filled, public classroom.

Study Skills

I have extensive experience with note taking and organization while attending a top tier university. Since then, I've helped several students develop methods to become organized and empowered to direct themselves effectively through school. Trying out various tools such as the Cornell note-taking method and the 2 week rule to create a relaxed study rhythm, will allow us to discover what makes the most sense for an individual student before we practice implementing and developing these remarkably effective habits for academic success.

Great tutor! Helpful at explaining concepts!

After just one session, my daughter was feeling more confident and happy about math. There were concepts and equations that she was not fully understanding, so having the opportunity to review them one on one with Dan was extremely helpful.
