About Daniel


Bio

Through what I have seen in my educational years, I would not be where I am today without the concept of collaboration. Whether it was in high school, college, or in my internships, the human interaction of helping one another has never fallen short in getting me and others to their goals. When I teach others concepts that I am knowledgeable in, I present the learner with time-efficient methods and strategies to help them reach their educational goal(s).

Through what I have seen in my educational years, I would not be where I am today without the concept of collaboration. Whether it was in high school, college, or in my internships, the human interaction of helping one another has never fallen short in getting me and others to their goals. When I teach others concepts that I am knowledgeable in, I present the learner with time-efficient methods and strategies to help them reach their educational goal(s). Tutoring has helped a great deal for the next step in my professional career - I am of service to help with your educational needs.

I've had my share of tutoring for the ACT when I helped my colleagues in the entire Math Section. From my participation in Math Team competitions in 8th grade up to senior year high school (ICTM League), logical shortcuts for a majority of math subjects are within my caliber. Within my math and chemical engineering classes at UIUC, I've tutored juniors and seniors to help them achieve the grade they want. At the same time, it refined my knowledge in those topics to explain complex topics into simple ideas.

In Glenbard South High School, I participated in ICTM math team for 4 years. As Calculator Team Leader, my team won 2nd Place in 2015 during the state finals at UIUC.

In my educational history, I've taken math classes including Calculus I, II, and III, Vector Calculus, Differential Equations, Industrial Statistics, and Advanced Engineering Mathematics (MATH 487).

On my ACT, my math scores ranged from 35 to 36. The math section is my highest score section with consistency.

My goal is to not only get a point across but to help develop critical thinking skills to solve all types of mathematical and logical problems. I never liked the idea of knowing how to solve this problem type or that problem type - that won't get a person far. Any assistance in math courses or ACT/SAT, I can teach them all.

I graduated from UIUC in Fall 2019 with a Bachelor's in Chemical Engineering and used English, both in school and in the industry, in my projects. My work includes assisting in writing/editing research papers within the electrochemistry field and working in teams to write extensive papers on business problems solved by engineering solutions. My High School years consisted of taking AP-level English classes: AP Language and Composition and AP Literature and Composition.
