About Daniel

I am a PhD in Psychology, with 10 years of experience tutoring. I have tutored many children of all ages in English, Math and the Sciences. I am a very friendly, responsible teacher, who is able to establish a great rapport with my students. Because of my background in psychology, I am very sensitive to emotional/physical/ or psychological factors that might interfere with the learning process. I am particularly strong in teaching ESL. I have taught at several local language schools, and I've also been the director of education for a language school. I have designed the curriculum for such a school. I am very sensitive to individuals from other cultures, and I am also a "host family" for international language students and a local organizer for an international language school.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have a Ph.D. in psychology, and practiced as a clinical psychologist for almost 20 years. I had extensive training in the causes and treatments for ADD/ADHD, and in fact, trained many interns and assistants in this. I have treated approximately 20 ADD and ADHD students over the past 20 years.

Biostatistics

I have a Ph.D. in psychology from Auburn University. I have taught statistics and probability and California State University, Los Angeles. I have advised and assisted numerous students in the analysis of data.

College Counseling

I have a doctorate degree in psychology and ten years of experience working as a psychologist. For the past ten years, I have advised many, many students on college placements and coursework. I have been approved in the SAT and ACT and have had to become very involved with the writing of admission essays, the selection of majors and assistance in the coursework. I am therefore, eminently qualified to advise students in college counseling. Thank you.

Dyslexia

As part of my training to obtain my doctorate degree in psychology, I took courses in learning disabilities, in IQ testing, in achievement testing and in the dynamics of helping learning disabled students. I also had similar courses during my training to receive my master's degree in psychology (course in learning disabilities), and as part of my undergraduate training at U.C.L.a. I was a psychologist for twenty years and treated effectively dozens of patients with learning disabilities who also had psychologically related problems.

Pharmacology

I have helped three previous students prepare for and pass the PCAT (Pharmacy College Admissions Test). I have a doctorate degree in psychology. The sub-tests of the PCAT are verbal ability, biology, chemistry, quantitative problems and two writing tests. On this site, I have passed each of these already, and so believe I am very qualified to tutor individuals wishing to prepare for their career as a pharmacist, and should be approved in your category of Pharmacology.

Special Needs

As a psychologist, I evaluated and treated literally hundreds of special need children and adults. I provided psychotherapy, set up study programs, and assisted the parents in providing good and consistent care. I did this for 20 years, both in private practice, and also I was Director of Emergency Services for the Las Vegas Mental Health Center. My training and experience in special need children make me the ideal tutor.

Study Skills

As a psychologist, I used my training to develop a program to assist in improving study skills. This involved the following parameters: time, place, reward system for success and practice strategies. This program worked extremely well not only in improving study skills, but also in increasing motivation and confidence. I have applied this program to innumerable students who lack discipline, and the knowledge to independently develop a study plan.

TEAS

I have a Ph.D. in psychology, and for the past ten years I have tutored students in all academic subjects. These include reading, math, science, English and language usage. I have designed the curriculum at the language school in Las Vegas. I am a teacher and local organizer for an international language school: HLI. My background in psychology, and strong training in medicine also make me an ideal teacher for the TEAS.

I would also like to add that I have tutored three other nursing candidates in the TEAS. I am competent to tutor students in English, math, science, reading and language usage.
