About Daniel

I hail from Stockton, CA and graduated from Swarthmore, often ranked as the nation's most selective liberal arts college. I was a nationally-ranked parliamentary debater before starting premed courses in college. I will be attending medical school this fall.

I scored in the top 2 percent of SAT scores, and have been an independent and institutionally-affiliated (Kaplan, Berkeley, Swarthmore) tutor for over ten years. I am patient and value solid fundamentals over the regurgitation of data.

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.

ADD/ADHD

In college, I tutored children suffering from ADD/ADHD in middle school and high-school math. For one year, I also worked as nanny for a nine year old boy dealing with severe ADD/ADHD. We worked on countless attention-focusing techniques and exercises.

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring math, from 3rd grade level to advanced collegiate calculus, for nearly eight years.

Aspergers

As a psychology graduate and current medical student, I have studied Aspergers from both a social and medical perspective. I have spent nearly ten years tutoring students who were placed along distinct points of this disorder spectrum. I performed fMRI research at UC Davis, which involved getting patients suffering Aspergers to lie motionless for 45 minutes at a time; this was no small feat.

Chemistry

I aced a full year each of general chemistry and organic chemistry in order to be accepted to medical school. In high school, I aced AP chemistry and received a 5 on the test for college credit.

Chess

I competed on the USCF circuit during high school, peaking at around 900. I was part of the Swarthmore Chess League and won the 2008 sophomore 20-min tournament.

College Counseling

I was awarded an academic scholarship to Swarthmore, of the most selective liberal arts colleges in the nation. I recently successfully finished the medical school application process, which was rigorous and comprehensive to say the least. I have coached students on collegiate and graduate admissions since early in college.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching elementary writing and mathematics for over eight years. I specifically taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade math as government-sponsored tutored for the No Child Left Behind Act. I studied a considerable amount of early child education as part of my psychology curriculum at Swarthmore.

MCAT

I scored in the top quartile of MCAT test takers. I received multiple medical school acceptance offers for this coming fall. I took a 3 month Kaplan course as well as each AAMC exam.

Organic Chemistry

I aced organic and inorganic chemistry semesters as part of my premedical curriculum. Also aced biochemistry which involved a considerable amount of background in organic chemistry.

Physics

I aced two semesters of physics (newtonian and electromagnetic) with laboratory in order to be accepted to medical school. I took an aced an additional semester of spacetime & quanta for personal interest.

SAT Math

Scored in the top percentile of high school SAT test takers.

Statistics

Aced AP stat in high school and an additional full year as part of my premedical collegiate curriculum.

Study Skills

I was a Student Academic Mentor for two years while at Swarthmore. I lived on-hall with incoming freshman to ease their collegiate transition. I led workshops on study-skills, course schedules, and specific subject study sessions (e.g. Organic chemistry, cognitive psychology).

TEAS

I have helped several aspiring nurses successfully pass the ATI TEAS exam. I have a strong background in both verbal and mathematical/scientific standardized tests. I find numerous similarities in test-taking strategies among general standardized exams such as the TEAS, SAT, or GRE and draw from multiple sources when teaching my students.
