About Dan

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.

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. ...
