About Dan

I have been tutoring since 1997 in Montgomery County Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II and Pre-Calculus and know the Montgomery County 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. Please reach out to me and I'll do my very best to have your child reach his potential. I have been tutoring since 1997 in Montgomery County Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II and Read more

Approved subjects

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.

Wonderful tutor!

Knowledgeable, patient tutor who is very perceptive in figuring out students' learning styles and identifying what exactly is holding a student back. He figured out an underlying deficiency in my daughters math skills that really helped unlock the reason she hadn't been "getting it!"
