My favorite part of math is sharing a breakthrough with someone. I know lots of different ways to approach math and I can find one that helps you move forward and have fun. I especially enjoy building on a student's intuition in geometry or physics to demystify algebra, precalculus and calculus. All parts of math are connected and I help students develop skills and improve their outlook by leveraging those connections.

Wonderful and very knowledgable precalculus tutor

Dr. Hobson helps me continue to enjoy challenging precalculus problems. We worked on sigma notation and infinite geometric series in our session this week.

multi variable calculus

Dana has been working with my daughter and we can’t say enough. He has been able to successfully teach her each lesson. Dana is also very patient and accommodating. Thank you!

Knowledgeable and awesome tutor.

Dana teaches trigonometry for my Junior daughter. We are really happy and appreciative of the fact that Dana is very knowledgeable and gives my daughter clues which helps her immensely when she has to do test. She finds Trig to be more of a favorite subject now. Thanks you Dana

Judy, 23 lessons with Dana

Great math teacher who is great at explaining concepts.

He covered Matrix multiplication and inverses of Matrices in Linear Algebra. He was very good at making concepts understandable and helped my son a great deal. Will be signing up again. Great teacher!

Dana deserves more than five stars

Dana has expertly taken the lead on my homeschooled child's math curriculum throughout high school. They are currently working on Calculus. My son truly enjoys learning from Dana - whose passion for math is contagious. He is an extremely intelligent, patient, personable, and skilled teacher. He is also a really nice person who has always been so kind, positive, helpful, adaptable, and a pleasure to work with.

Absolutely the best

COVID-19 hits and I have no option but to take a Applied Differential Equations class online, which is composed of a series of links to Khan Academy videos. Not going well, but then I found Dana! Dana worked with me throughout the class and he changed my experience. Dana is methodical and will show different approaches to a given problem. He is well-versed in various disciplines and often makes relevant connections. His pace keeps you engaged but not overwhelmed. Dana is consistently very pleasant, kind, and respectful. Not only is Dana thorough and reliable, but also very accommodating. As I am nearing the end of this class, I can say that it is because of Dana that I feel confident with the material and that confidence will carry over into future classes that also utilize this content. And yes, my grade (A) in the class reflects my progress. I am so grateful to have found Dana and that he had the time to work with me. A great teacher can make all the difference and Dana is exactly that.

Experienced and patient tutor - an amazing find

My daughter was struggling with her online multivariable calc course as the recorded lectures did not always match up to the assignments. It is a daily class and if you don't understand something then you quickly can get behind and lost. Dana is really flexible with his scheduling and immediately found the textbook she was using to pinpoint the topics that she needs to master. His communications are excellent so that they don't waste any time. She has gotten back up to speed in the class and has been confident in her work and quizzes!

Knowledgeable And very patient

Dana went over college level linear algebra with me. He was very patient and knowledgeable. I would recommend. But for advanced course I recommend sending over the material ahead of time.
