About Daniel

I am a licensed teacher with 4 years experience teaching HS Science (Biology, Physical Science, A & P, Health, Introductory Chemistry). I have 2 Summer Semesters experience teaching college-level General Biology. In Graduate school, I was a Teaching Assistant for two sections of Biology and one section of Entomology. I have over 10 years' experience as a private tutor.

Subjects I have tutored are as follows: Mathematics, Algebra, Geometry, Basic Trigonometry, some Algebra II, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Spelling, Grammar, Literature, some Writing, and ACT prep.

I have workplace experience in the following: Medical Research, Clinical Laboratory Science, and Scientific Research in Microbiology.

I absolutely love tutoring. It is the most rewarding of all my "jobs!"

I have a knack for seeing where the student is getting confused on a topic. Often, it is just a misinterpretation of the steps needed to solve a kind of problem.

I understand the strange and often confusing "language" of the sciences. I have developed a clear way to analyze mathematical science problems, and I was very lucky in high school by being forced to take 4 years of Latin! Plus, I have experience in researching how to look for answers.

I try to reduce Math & Science stress in students, give them the tools to solve problems on their own, and try to keep a wicked sense of humor.

Intelligent and Focused advisor! — Daniel and I reviewed some of the foundations of geometry, and he simplified the entire lesson (equation of a circle) in a way I could understand. I got the notes required to learn the lesson, and he helped me get a good start on the lesson activities so that I feel comfortable working at it on my own. Very happy with the Daniel and the overall lesson! ...
