Bio

After getting my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Toronto I spent 42 year in IBM research, with brief sabbaticals in Switzerland, China and Japan. I feel I can teach high school and college level math, high school physics, and general computer science.

After getting my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Toronto I spent 42 year in IBM research, with brief sabbaticals in Switzerland, China and Japan. I feel I can teach high school and college level math, high school physics, and general computer science.

I do not have a teaching certificate; my teaching experience includes a course on computability at the University of Toronto as a graduate student, teaching a semester of computer science in Beijing, China, and mentoring a Columbia PhD student. For a couple years I also taught a Chinese language class. Right now I am tutoring one high school student, and I find that so rewarding that I would like to teach more students.

My approach to teaching math is to let the student solve a couple easier problems, which then leads to a solution of his harder one.

My approach to teaching physics is to get the laws relevant to a given problem, and then see what relevant quantities they can contribute.

I teach Computer Science by representing its problems as math problems.

I like teaching students motivated to learn, and they seem to like me.

The bulk of my experience is in software and hardware correctness. Further I worked on hardware and communication protocol synthesis, on optimization, and on neural networks. I have programmed in C++, Java, CUDA and several less common languages.

Best tutor!

Made my impossible graduate level class seem possible. He is very dedicated and committed to teaching any hard topic. I wish I started sessions with him sooner!

Awesome Computer Science tutor!

Daniel is an awesome teacher, I'm so pleased to have found him on Wyzant. He's teaching my son Java, to help prepare for the AP Computer science course. He's very organized and sends out files to upload a few days in advance. My son enjoys his lessons and looks forward to them. I highly recommend him to anyone needing lessons in programming.

A+++

Daniel is super knowledge and is outstanding in making complicated subject very understandable…Daniel explains my CS material much much better than my teacher …excellent A++++ thank you

Oscar, 13 lessons with Daniel

Very patient

Daniel was very patient in helping me work through my math problems. My last math class was many years ago so you can imagine how tedious this must have been for him. He was still supportive and explained problems completely before moving on to the next.

Fanstic Teacher!

He was able to help me out with my DFS Algorithm and took the time to demonstrate to me how the methods worked on a whiteboard! Would highly recommend anyone trying to get tutoring from this site to check him out!
