About Daniel


Bio

In 2015 I completed a major life goal and earned my PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology. I currently work as a post-doctoral associate in Miami working in data curation and integration, and previously worked on a spinal cord injury project focusing on expanding cell growth and transplants. During both undergrad and grad school, I held numerous tutoring and teaching positions, both with the schools and privately.

In 2015 I completed a major life goal and earned my PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology. I currently work as a post-doctoral associate in Miami working in data curation and integration, and previously worked on a spinal cord injury project focusing on expanding cell growth and transplants. During both undergrad and grad school, I held numerous tutoring and teaching positions, both with the schools and privately. Among them, I worked for a physics professor as a researcher and a lab teaching assistant from February 2008 to July 2009 and was a science tutor for the on-campus tutoring service from October 2007 to July 2009 where I tutored biology, genetics, general/organic/biochemistry, physics I and II, and cell and molecular biology. I tutored disabled students through the school, as well as through the Texas Department of Rehabilitative and Assistive Services from January 2009 to July 2009. I tutored students privately one-on-one in numerous science and early college math courses from January 2007 to July 2009. Throughout my graduate career I worked as a Teaching Assistant for the school, primarily in Biology, while continuing work as a regular one-on-one private tutor. I genuinely enjoy helping people from all walks of life, in all different subjects, and I see it as a way for me to give back to the local community. Currently I'm still tutoring in one-on-one and group sessions from elementary school children to adults in my spare time.

I prefer to tutor using the Socratic method. I don't simply give out answers to students, I facilitate the students to let them find the answers based on what they already know by asking questions to lead them in the right direction. It does tend to take longer, but my students always remember the material better than from simply being given the answers. While I've mostly tutored upper-level students (high school and college), I love working with children and have lots of experience helping my younger relatives and friends' children with their studies in many subjects.

General Computer

I have formal training in programming (C++, Mathematica, and some HTML and python) and have worked with computers since I had the hand-eye coordination needed. I worked on a project for the ONR (Office of Naval Research) as an assistant to the IT manager setting up new computers, keeping track of updates, antivirus, and other general computer duties during my Undergraduate career. In addition, I built my own computer from purchased parts in Undergrad and have helped friends, family members, and clients with numerous computer issues from hardware installation/upgrading, viral removal, hard drive formatting and re-set up to functionalities such as WiFi set up, usage assistance, software installation, and peripheral (printers, scanners, etc.) set up.

Biology

I graduated with a BS in Biomedical Sciences degree and a minor in Chemistry in 2009 and a PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology in 2015. During my schooling in both college and graduate school I tutored extensively for biology, genetics, microbiology, physiology, and cell and molecular biologies.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

During my undergraduate training, I took advanced courses in chemistry including organic, biochem, instrumental analysis, and physical chemistry. In addition, I worked as a research assistant during organic chemistry to perform chiral separations of a new drug. I graduated with a minor in chemistry (majored in biomedical sciences). I continue to perform a great deal of chemistry-centric work, focusing on drug discovery and modifications.

Genetics

I have a PhD in molecular biology which focused on DNA mutagenesis. I was trained in a lab that studied spermatogenesis and, by extension, was heavily genetics-centric. In addition, I've taken graduate level courses in genetics and taught the class at a college level, as well as having tutored the class in one-on-one sessions.
Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

As an undergraduate, I minored in chemistry. This included, amongst other classes, taking organic chemistry I and II, in both of which I received A's. In addition, I worked with my organic chemistry professors on a pharmaceutical separation project, heavily involving determination of reagent and product structures, chiral separation by NMR, and more.

I am in a master program and needed some serious help with Molecular Biology. Daniel is my favorite tutor I have ever had. Patient, funny, knowledgeable in basically all the sciences specifically molecular. We had set up a weekly meeting that we went over the information I needed help with. However, outside of that, he was swift at answering messages and was informative. Since I am under a lot of stress with the grad program, he was clam, patient, and supportive with all my studies. I always told him that he should teach at my university. I truly appreciate his help this semester. Well worth the time and money! Thank you Daniel from the bottom of my grades and heart.

Great lesson

First time user. Did a great job teaching concepts for a more visual learner. Daughter stated she gets more from this type of learning than in class. Will book again.

Angela, 1 lesson with Daniel

Fantastic tutor!

I am a master's student struggling with a molecular biology class. Daniel is extremely patient with my many questions. He is able to clearly explain the topics I am struggling with and has very helpful analogies. Highly recommend!!

Danielle, 4 lessons with Daniel

Knowledgeable and Experienced tutor

Daniel helped me with 10th grade Chemistry Honors. He is great in explaining and communicating so I can understand and learn what I need to do well in my chemistry class. He helped me in just 2 hours to gain comfort and ability to handle my material.

Rotations, translations, reflections and lines of symmetry Daniel was very patient and careful in his teachings, I understood quickly and did great in my test. I look forward to review my math problems w Daniel again

Juliana, 5 lessons with Daniel

Patient, understanding, and extremely knowledgeable!

Daniel helped my daughter understand concepts in Honors Chemistry that have been very difficult for her to grasp. He is extremely positive and encouraging, and actually held her attention for the entire hour long session!
