Hi, I'm Dan. I would love to offer my tutoring services to you or your child. I have been tutoring for many years in Montgomery County Pre-algebra, algebra I, and algebra II and Pre-calculus and know the curriculum very well. I also taught algebra I, II, and Pre-calculus at the Jewish Day School in the 1990s. In terms of my education, I have a BA in Geophysical Sciences with a minor in Math (University of Chicago) and a Masters in Education (Johns Hopkins University). I also have a BS in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Maryland (2015) and am a meteorologist by education. As I have matured in my tutoring style over the years, I learned that guiding the student to the answer rather than lecture is the most useful and effective approach because I am thereby able to keep the student focused. I think learning should be a process of discovery, and when kids make mistakes, they need to discover that themselves, so that when they do work on their own, they can identify mistakes without the aid of a tutor. I'm great at explaining concepts and helping kids avoid careless errors. I am easy-going, laid back, not intimidating, and patient. I live in Bethesda and can tutor at my place or at your place in southern Montgomery County including Potomac, Bethesda, Rockville, Gaithersburg, Kensington, Silver Spring, and Chevy Chase. Looking forward to hearing from you. Hi, I'm Dan. I would love to offer my tutoring services to you or your child.

I give a substantial discount for tutoring at my place in northern Bethesda.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have 13 years of tutoring experience in algebra II. I know the Montgomery County curriculum.
