About Daniel

I am a chemical engineer who just graduated this last June 2015. I took courses for two years at Palomar Community College where I worked for a time as a math tutor, then I finished my undergraduate studies at UCSD. During this time, I have tutored students privately and via UCSD's AIChE (American Institute of Chemical Engineers) chapter with a good amount of success.

As a recent college graduate, I understand what students go through to obtain a deep understanding of the course material and to get a high grade in the course. Whatever the motive is, I want to share the knowledge I have in the matter with others and help them to succeed in the class as well as help them remember these skills to be successful later in life.

I have tutored all math subjects at Palomar College and conducted private sessions for calculus and algebra, and I believe it is crucial to understand math to succeed in many walks of life.

Chemical engineering is my passion, so I am more than ready to share what I know about engineering and the sciences. I have also helped fellow students grasp the material with great success.

If you want a recent college graduate with a good amount of tutoring experience, I'm your man! Please contact me if you have questions and/or would like to schedule a lesson with me. Thanks a bunch and best of luck to you in your studies!

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.

Algebra 2

Algebra II is one of several subjects I tutored in at Palomar College, and I tutored in the subject for high school and college students with great success. As Algebra II is a precursor to many courses in mathematics and the sciences, I believe it is crucial to have a solid understanding in the subject.

Calculus

I tutored in math for Palomar College for a year, then I tutored privately up until now in math. During this period I have had many calculus students at Palomar and several students as a private tutor, all of whom were pleased with my services.

Chemical Engineering

I have received my bachelor's degree in chemical engineering this year from UCSD with a major GPA of 3.555. I am also a certified Engineer in Training in chemical engineering and seeking to obtain my Professional Engineering license in the next two to four years. I have tutored in several chemical engineering topics such as fluid mechanics and engineering thermodynamics, and I have assisted my classmates in understanding the current material with great success.

Chemistry

I have tutored several people in chemistry prior to joining Wyzant, and I have informally assisted peers in understanding general chemistry at the San Diego colleges. As a chemical engineer, I highly value chemistry as an important subject and will help you understand it better.

MATLAB

The chemical engineering department at UCSD requires one course in MATLAB and highly recommends using the language throughout the program. As such, I am comfortable with MATLAB and Simulink, its dynamics simulation counterpart. I have also helped my classmates understand how to use MATLAB to their advantage in chemical engineering coursework as well as math and numerical methods coursework.

Physics

I took AP Physics B (algebra based) in high school, and I also took the college physics courses, including the topics of kinetics, electricity & magnetism, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and optics. I especially rely on thermodynamics and fluid mechanics as a chemical engineer, but I believe all of these are important for everyone to understand.

Precalculus

I have tutored in precalculus since Palomar College. Since this is a precursor to the calculus series as well as many science and engineering applications, I believe it is crucial to understand this subject well. As such, I will use my knowledge and experience to ensure that the student understands and exceeds in precalculus.

Trigonometry

I have tutored in trigonometry extensively in Palomar College and as a private tutor. This subject must be well understood to succeed in calculus and physics, in which I have demonstrated proficiency. As such, while tutoring in calculus, I seek to ensure the student's understanding of trigonometry is correct.
