About Daniel

I am a retired developmental optometrist whose practice was limited to examinations and vision therapy to cure learning-related vision problems. I started tutoring in 2011 and shortly thereafter became certified in tutoring and academic coaching by the National Tutoring Association.
I love watching my students experience the "aha" moment when, through my guidance, they finally understand a concept that has been difficult for them. I enjoy incorporating humor during the tutoring session to make it more enjoyable.

I have always loved math and I used it daily in my profession.

Please contact me if you have any further questions or concerns.

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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored algebra 1 since 2011. I am certified as a tutor and an academic coach by the National Tutoring Association. I enrolled in math courses through differential and integral calculus. I used algebra in my previous profession as an optometrist. For example, refraction equations involve algebra. I encourage my students to not be intimidated by variables such as "X" and to substitute real numbers if they get confused about how to solve a problem.

Elementary Math

During tutoring lessons, I incorporate visualization activities that I used when I practiced developmental optometry. Visualization is important in understanding elementary math concepts. I achieved certification from the National Tutoring Association as a tutor and academic coach after retiring from optometry in 2011. I enjoy working with children and we have fun during our lessons.

Prealgebra

The National Tutoring Association has certified me as a tutor and academic coach. I enjoy teaching pre-algebra with a multi-sensory approach. For example, fractions are taught not only by writing examples and explanations but also by having my student hold a sheet of paper and cutting it into different parts. We may also use coins to demonstrate their relationship to fractions... how a quarter is really a quarter of a dollar and four of them equal one dollar.

SAT Math

When I tutor for the SAT, I ask my students to first take a practice test so that I can determine the math topics which we need to work on. Then we can concentrate on improving their expertise in those areas. I am certified in tutoring and academic coaching by the National Tutoring Association. I try to incorporate humor and fun during my tutoring sessions.

Trigonometry

I retired from developmental optometry in 2011 and I started tutoring shortly thereafter. When my student asks, "Why is trigonometry important?" I can answer that trigonometry is used to calculate the path of a light ray as it is refracted. Trigonometry explains why the bottom of a swimming pool appears closer than it really is. I am certified as a tutor and an academic coach by the National Tutoring Association. I can patiently explain trigonometric concepts to my students, using humor to lighten up the tutoring session.
