Bio

If you are looking for help with Math problems on a 1-on-1 basis, I’m your person. I have tutored a number of students, coached many young athletes and have given a number of presentations professionally. Bottom line – my teaching style gets through to people!

If you are looking for help with Math problems on a 1-on-1 basis, I’m your person. I have tutored a number of students, coached many young athletes and have given a number of presentations professionally. Bottom line – my teaching style gets through to people!

Yes, Math can be frustrating! But with the right person’s assistance (such as me), your Math problems will be solved. I can make life easier for you (the parent) and your son/daughter by providing personal attention to their Math needs. It’s easy – just contact me and I will work with you ASAP. I love helping people learn!

As for me, I was my high school class valedictorian, and have a bachelor's degree in Math and a master’s degree in Math Statistics (both with honors from Ball State). Math was my favorite subject in school and still is today. I am a numbers guy who can explain numbers to my audience. I love Math and have used Math modeling and problem-solving my whole professional career as an actuary, analyst, consultant and manager. I can work with Math students at all levels – from Junior High to High School to College – from Pre Algebra, Algebra 1 and 2, SAT Math, Pre-Calculus, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, Probability, Statistics.

You let me know what level of Math you would like me to help your son/daughter. My goal is to help the student have a much better understanding of their Math subject and become more proficient. Where the teacher didn’t have time to explain the section in the Math book, I will provide the needed time and attention. You can count on it!

My related interests and hobbies include golf, basketball, football, baseball, coaching young adults, reading, family endeavors with my wife and two high school children, traveling, and all Indianapolis professional teams – Pacers, Colts, Indians and Fever. As you can see, many of my interests involve numbers with strategies.

Math – Yes, you can do it. I can help.

Fantastic Tutor!

Our high school Freshman is normally a strong advanced math student, but struggled with a couple of quizzes on polynomial material. We lined up Dan to help, and our son loved him! Super nice, patient and a great teacher - our son felt very confident after a single session and was so happy with the experience that we lined up another session to further prep for the upcoming exam over this material. Could not have been happier- highly recommend Dan.

Math Tutor

First lesson for my daughter was very important. Dan showed real interest in making my daughter feel comfortable. After first lesson my daughter was thrilled with her tutor.

Informative, Patient, and Confidence-boosting

Dan is an incredible tutor. Our two hours flew by and I actually understood algebra for the first time in my life. He gave me confidence, was patient and explained things well when I didn't understand, and was overall a great guy.

Greg, 44 lessons with Dan

Lifesaver

Dan is extremely professional and I would not have been able to complete my Masters Stats class without his help. Still waiting on my final grade to come in but it looks like it should be an A. Thank you Dan. I would recommend him to anyone needing help with their statistics homework.

Josh, 1 lesson with Dan

The best tutor we have had!

Dan is a very good math tutor and a really nice person. We recommend him as the best tutor we have ever had

Explained rationale

Dan helped me understand the rationale for choosing between different stat tests. He helped me manage my time with homework and review. He helped me avoid procrastination! Thanks Dan!

Carolyn, 18 lessons with Dan

Great high school math tutor!

Dan has been a great math tutor. He explains things well and is very patient. His experience gives him the depth of knowledge necessary to be able to offer different approaches to solve math problems. His availability for tutoring is great -- time slots from after school until the public library closes. He's made a huge difference in my understanding of Finite Math this year. Glad we found him!

Patrick, 16 lessons with Dan

Excellent tutor that gives confidence

Dan is an excellent trig/precalc tutor that guided my daughter and gave her confidence to patiently apply skills she already had rather than be overwhelmed and frustrated to the degree that she could not think clearly. After working with Dan for one session, she had the confidence and motivation to come home and try working through problems on her own using the tips that he had given her. He was very quick to respond and work us into his schedule. I am looking forward to seeing what she does after some more sessions with Dan.

Kim, 4 lessons with Dan

Patient

We worked on Chapter 1 Pre-Calculus and Dan has been great helping us get off to a great start this year. He continues to be a great asset and critical to our success.
