PhD Researcher for Tutoring in Math, Science, and more
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.
Knowledgeable, dependable, efficient and easy to understand.
Daniel really knows the subject matter and is able to communicate it well using clear, real-life, examples to help me understand the concepts. He is always on time, always patient, and always nice. Daniel has helped me with Honors Organic Chemistry and with AP Physics and I have a solid A in both classes.Mario, 56 lessons with Daniel
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.Naomi, 10 lessons with Daniel
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
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.Eleni , 9 lessons with Daniel
Excellent first lesson
Daniel arrived early, assessed my son’s needs and presented information in a clear concise manner. Kind and polite too. Looking forward to next time.Patricia, 7 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!Jan, 1 lesson with Daniel
Initial test prep breakdown very thorough ACT, SAT and GRE. Scheduling for future test. Test prior to see where we have struggle areasShatondrea, 4 lessons with Daniel
