I am a Certified Secondary Math Teacher with an M.Ed.

I have had teaching experience spanning 10 years of combined teaching and tutoring in science, technology and math.

My tutoring experience includes having trained with and tutored standardized test prep for both Princeton Review and Kaplan.

Most students struggling in mathematics tend to have holes in their fundamental understanding of concepts taught earlier in the year or in prior years. Given my experience teaching math at all levels, I focus on finding these holes and making sure they are filled with the requisite understanding.

Standardized test preparation is an area of expertise. I teach a variety of test-taking strategies that help students increase their scores. I can work with students struggling in a specific section. I have also worked with students that have good scores and helped them get better scores. Wherever you are on the percentile chart, coaching and tutoring can help.

Great Tutor

Daren is a great tutor and a very nice person. He tutored my son for about two academic years. He was willing to work with our schedule to meet for tutoring. Daren is very knowledgeable and he was able to help with multiple subject areas. I would gladly use Daren again. I highly recommend Daren.

Top notch math tutor!

I can't say enough about how happy we have been with Daren. He first worked with my daughter near the end of a tough semester in physics and helped her get an A. Because he did such a great job with her before, we contacted him this year for help in calculus 2. He has really come through for her a second time. Finding help in high level math and science classes is difficult, however, Daren has been a life saver. It is too bad there aren't more math teachers like him!!

Daren Krause - God's gift to struggling math students

Daren is one of those rare few with the gift of teaching. He is quiet, informed and insightful. He leads our student, while allowing the student to have a sense of empowerment. He is quiet but insistent. A West Point grad with a passion for teaching. No dissembling, just gets the job done. I sincerely hope that no one else hires him so that we can monopolize his free time. He has given our son knowledge and confidence as well as pragmatic testing advice. Creme de la creme.

"Phenomenal tutor that adapts to your learning style!"

I was skeptical about using a tutor because I have had bad experiences in the past but Daren's ability to adapt his teaching style to my learning style was amazing! I despise statistics and most all math but he was able to explain it to me in a way that allowed me to grasp the formulas and concepts. If you are looking for a tutor with good prices who isn't looking to nickel and dime you and knowledgeable then choose Daren!
