About Dan


Bio

I am a 38-year-old male with a BS in Electrical Engineering and a MEd in Math Education - Curriculum and Instruction. I used to teach high school math from 2008 - 2016, and also used to coach XC / track for 6 years. I feel very confident in my ability to help students as a math tutor because my experience as a high school teacher has taught me how to differentiate my teaching style to accommodate to different learning styles.

I am a 38-year-old male with a BS in Electrical Engineering and a MEd in Math Education - Curriculum and Instruction. I used to teach high school math from 2008 - 2016, and also used to coach XC / track for 6 years. I feel very confident in my ability to help students as a math tutor because my experience as a high school teacher has taught me how to differentiate my teaching style to accommodate to different learning styles.

As a high school teacher, I taught the following classes over the years: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Precalculus / Trigonometry, and AP Calculus. In addition to those subjects, I tutor SAT Math, ACT Math, and GRE Math. I also used to teach at a special education school for 3 years, so have significant experience working with students with learning disabilities.

As a standardized test tutor, I believe that students learn to master the content through assessment, instruction, and repetition. My students that have seen the most improvement take a new practice test between each tutoring session, and then each tutoring session is spent going over any problems that the student gets incorrect. In general, they make less mistakes as they take more tests. Of course, the lesson can be structured in other ways if your preference differs.

Credentials:
-Perfect 800 Math SAT score.
-Perfect 800 Math GRE score (old scoring scale was 200 to 800). I would be happy to verify my SAT and GRE scores. Just ask, and I can email a copy of my scores.
-I didn't take the ACT in high school, but I did recently take an ACT practice test, and received a perfect score on the Math section.
-8 years experience teaching all levels of high school math.
-As a high school AP Calculus teacher, the percentage of my students that scored a 5 on the AP test was 21% higher than the national average, and the percentage of my students that passed the AP test (with a score of 3 or better) was 24% higher than the national average.

GRE

I was a high school math teacher for 8 years, teaching every class from Algebra 1 through AP Calculus and AP Statistics. When I took the GRE exam back in 2005, I scored a perfect 800 on the Math GRE (old scoring scale was 200-800). I also scored a perfect 800 on the Math SAT. I do not tutor for the Verbal or Writing sections. I am happy verifying my standardized test scores, and am also happy to share my teacher evaluations. Just ask, and I am happy to send a copy of these documents by email.

I actually never taught Pre Algebra (in a paid setting) because I taught high school, but taught almost every math class above Pre Algebra, including Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Pre Calculus / Trigonomety, AP Calculus AB, and AP Statistics. Although I never taught Pre Algebra as an employee during my 8 years as a high school teacher, I did teach Pre Algebra for one semester when I was a student teacher. My student teaching was for 7th graders.

great teacher

Dan help my son with several assignments. He understands so much more. He is very helpful and understanding. He is a great teacher.

Kristi, 4 lessons with Dan

Great at technology and explaining. So smart

Dan is an incredible teacher. He is so smart, so fast, and is great at technology. This is very helpful because he can draw out diagrams, screenshot problems and write on them, and his camera is always working and he's always on time. He has helped me so much in calculus AB.

great tutor

Thank you thank you so much helped my daughter With algebra 1. Easy to understand making her smile cause she understands now thank you !

Stephanie, 1 lesson with Dan

Very Helpful

Dan has been tutoring my son in math for the SAT. My son takes a practice test each week and Dan reviews and explains the questions which were answered incorrectly. Dan is an excellent tutor and is very patient. My son tells me he is getting a lot out of the lessons. I compare this to a private local SAT tutor on whom I spent a small fortune. She had no patience whatsoever, and was not a good teacher. I only wish I had started with Dan to begin with, as the difference is night and day. I highly recommend Dan.

Allison, 8 lessons with Dan

Highly recommended

We were nervous about finding a tutor that would just be able to explain the reasoning and not just "do the math.". However, Dan was great with trying to prompt my son instead of just solving the problems. Quick communication to set up the lesson and responsive to needs within the lesson itself.

Cindy, 3 lessons with Dan

Review

We worked on Algebra two which isn’t an exciting topic by Dan explain everything and made it understandable. I now better understand my homework and would call Dan to help me again. He was helpful.

Angela, 3 lessons with Dan

Great work!

Very knowledgeable and personable. Flexible scheduling and adjustment - Through conversation, found a tutor that can meet our needs. Looking forward to continuing tutoring and improving as we move along.

Jermaine, 1 lesson with Dan

great and responsible tutor

Dan O has tutored my child for about 4 months, and he has been very helpful and responsible. He is always available to discuss with me my child's progress and comes with a plan to meet my child's personal needs in AP Calculus.

Jijun, 29 lessons with Dan

Very helpful and flexible

My son has had several lessons with Dan for PreCalc and he finds him very helpful. We have also found him to be very accommodating in terms of scheduling, etc. Highly recommend....
