About Dan

I will help my students learn how to solve problems, not just memorize facts and figures. Starting with an assessment of your current strengths and areas for improvement, I will put together a plan to improve your academic performance in the physical sciences or mathematics. My goal is to see you reach a personal "Aha! moment" during each session.

I have spent eleven years teaching Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics (including Calculus-based AP Physics) to high school students. I have also spent six summers teaching enrichment courses in Algebra, Calculus, Chemistry, and Physics. I hold MA teaching licenses in Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry. I also teach Android APP Development and Robotics.

My undergraduate degree from MIT is in Physics, and I have my M. Ed. from AIC.

Excellent tutor

Dan has helped our son a great deal. This was especially true with the end of term review ahead of the exam. He has really helped get the foundations of physics right.
