Hi, my name is Daniel. I have a master's degree in education and have been a certified special education teacher working in the Chicagoland area for 12 years. As a distinguished special education teacher, I have worked with a wide range of students in a variety of settings. I have tutored students from 2nd grade to high school. I have a passion for teaching struggling students how to read. Based on overwhelming research, this requires use of an explicit, or synthetic, approach to phonics. I have many years of experience using the Wilson Phonics Program and the Orton-Gillingham approach and have seen tremendous student growth using this approach. These programs utilize a multi-sensory approach to reading, phonics and spelling. I provide all materials and, additionally, model for parents a daily reading routine. Most importantly, I value the relationships that I am able to build with students. I truly believe that positive relationships with students is instrumental to their academic growth! There is no better feeling than experiencing the transformation of struggling students as they learn to read! If your child is struggling with a comprehension and/or fluency issue, I will definitely address that as well.

I'm an excellent K-8 tutor because I have a large tool box, I understand key developmental milestones, have worked with a wide range of students and know, most importantly, how to keep students motivated! I cater the curriculum to student interests and develop positive relationships with every student and parent. My experience working in schools has given me an acute understanding of where students should be--relative to their age/grade level-- and what their goals should be in order to be successful in elementary school, middle school, high school, college, etc. I cater my tutoring to fit your needs!

I'm an excellent special needs tutor because I have over a decade of experience working with a wide range of special needs students. I make learning engaging by getting to really know students and t

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching K-6 in the Chicagoland area for 12 years. I have a master's degree in special education and a thorough understanding of the K-6 curriculum and how to meet the needs of students, especially those that are struggling. Whether it's language arts, math, science, social studies or executive functioning, I have a myriad of tools to enable students to feel successful and, most importantly, to grow in their academic achievement. I have an an in-depth understanding of reading strategies-both comprehension and phonics based. I am a big proponent of using the Wilson Program if phonics and/or dyslexia is an issue. If writing is difficult, we can break down the assignment into smaller chunks with graphic organizers and sentence starters. In this same way, we can break down multi-step math problems through visualization, highlighting and talking about what the problem is asking. Whatever the issue is, I will have research-based solution that ensures student growth.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Daniel is a very organized and patient tutor. He listened to our concerns about both of our boys and tailored their lessons to their unique needs.
