UPDATE as of 01/07/2018 - My injury recovery is going well and I'm getting back to my regular schedule in time for the new school semester to start. I'll have availability primarily in the evenings and all day weekends, but feel free to contact me to ask about other times not listed in my main availability, as I do have some flexibility. I'm now able to hold sessions online and in-person again.

UPDATE as of 10/24/2017 - Just prior to Hurricane Irma hitting my area, I was in a severe accident and badly broke my ankle. As such, I'm currently unable to travel to meet students, but my schedule is very flexible for performing online tutoring through the Wyzant platform, as I'm telecommuting to work. If you're unsure about online tutoring, please don't hesitate to message me and I'd be happy to give you a free demo of the system so you can see the features and functionality at a time convenient to everyone involved.

I recently completed graduate school with a PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology. I have published work in several scientific journals and presented my work at many conferences. During both undergrad and grad school, I held numerous tutoring and teaching jobs. Among them, I worked for a physics professor as a researcher and a lab teaching assistant from February 2008 to July 2009. I was a science tutor for the on-campus tutoring service from October 2007 to July 2009; I tutored biology, genetics, general/organic/biochemistry, physics I and II, cell/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 really enjoy helping people from all walks of life, in all different subjects. I see it as a way for me to give back to the local community. Currently I'm still tutoring in one-on-one 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.

Algebra 1

I initially took algebra I in 7th grade, moving up consistently and taking calculus BC in high school my senior year, getting A's and B's all throughout. During my years of undergraduate work ('05-'09) I tutored in numerous levels of math, including sticking with the basic algebra assistance.
Biology,

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.

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, 26 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.

Geometry

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!

Jan, 1 lesson with Daniel

Knowledgeable

Initial test prep breakdown very thorough ACT, SAT and GRE. Scheduling for future test. Test prior to see where we have struggle areas

Shatondrea, 4 lessons with Daniel

Knowledgeable & patient tutor

Very knowledgeable of statistics and biology. Patient & willing to go the extra mile! Look forward to next tutoring session. Daniel is very good! He know his material. Tutor sessions very helpful!

Christine, 6 lessons with Daniel

Very knowledgeable and very helpful

As a young PhD student it is hard to get through papers and identify weakness in the study. Daniel was able to help explain the experiments in the manuscripts in a way that was easy to understand. While identifying the limitations of the study.

Mairyn, 3 lessons with Daniel

Great help

Great tutor, helped my son with chemistry, we will use him again soon on a regular basis..... He was knowledgeable and got to connect easy with my 15 year old son
