About Daniel

Having earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in engineering from the University of Michigan, I have a strong foundation in mathematics and physics. While I was an engineer at IBM, I engaged in assignments that required the use of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus and physics. Part of my work experience includes preparation and presentation of lectures for short courses. In addition, I was able to consult, mentor and tutor coworkers on the topics of math and related disciplines. Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint and Word were tools that I used extensively to carry out and present the results of my work. For years, I have tutored my sons with their school work. This includes middle school and high school math and science. I continue to tutor them today.

My style is to teach with patience, and my approach is to teach using methods consistent with the student’s primary teacher and text book. This is intended to avoid confusion. However, I am flexible so that alternative methods can be taught when necessary. By nature, I am very detail oriented which enables me take the student step by step through solutions to complex problems. My goal is to teach fundamentals in addition to advanced methods so that the student will successfully master the subject matter.

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.

Microsoft Excel

Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet application that can be used to organize and process data and / or subject matter. As an engineering professional, I have experience using Excel to accomplish various and numerous tasks. This includes building simple tables and complex matrices, executing basic arithmetic as well as solving problems that require advanced mathematics. Excel is a very capable tool that can be used for a wide range of applications. You can use it to organize and document your child's soccer schedule. Or you can develop Excel spreadsheets to solve complex problems involving many math disciplines such as Geometry, Trigonometry, Probability, Statistics, even Calculus. Excel also has the ability to execute logical "IF, THEN" statements and other computer programming functions. I would like to help you learn, understand and utilize Excel to solve problems whether they are simple or complex.
