Bio

Hi! I am a Full-Stack Developer with years of experience teaching and tutoring. I currently work at a start up, where I work with Ruby on Rails and ReactJS. I have a B.A. from Wesleyan University in Mathematics and Philosophy and a completed the Web Development Immersive course at General Assembly, where I am currently a TA.

Hi! I am a Full-Stack Developer with years of experience teaching and tutoring. I currently work at a start up, where I work with Ruby on Rails and ReactJS. I have a B.A. from Wesleyan University in Mathematics and Philosophy and a completed the Web Development Immersive course at General Assembly, where I am currently a TA.

For over a decade, I've been teaching in many different contexts; I've conducted one-on-one sessions, worked at a learning center, taught in-classroom, taught online courses, etc, etc. It's something I've always loved doing, and I'm willing to humbly aver that I've gotten pretty good at it. I am a highly focused, hard working, analytical thinker. I love the challenge of articulating difficult concepts in clear, concise language and of pinpointing and untangling other's conceptual misunderstandings. These qualities make me both highly effective as a tutor and probably kind of insufferable at parties.

Here are some of my specialties:

Computer Programming:
Ultimately, programming is a lot of fun; it's about solving puzzles and building cool things. I try to get my students to see this, while giving them the foundational conceptual knowledge they need to move forward. I've taught students in college level Computer Science courses, programming Bootcamps, and students learning independently. I've taught JavaScript, Python, and Ruby, as well as related Web-Development technologies like Ruby on Rails, Node-Express, HTML/CSS, Sinatra, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, and more.

Mathematics:
Once a Math geek, always a Math geek. I tend to focus on College/ Late High School level subjects, like Calculus, Linear Algebra, and Set Theory, though I also tutor younger students in more fundamental subjects, like Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, or just about anything else you can mention.

Test Prep:
I've worked for several test-prep companies and have ample experience prepping students for various exams, particularly the SAT.

Writing:
Did I mention I also write? Well I do, and I've been published in several literary magazines. I've taught creative writing, literature, and standard expository essay writing.

Excellent teacher

It was really a great experience having Daniel as my sons tutor. He really knows the subject, he is patient and kind. We are now on summer time but I would like to continue with him.

Good start

Daniel helped my son review a chapter on geometry for a test the next day and he ended up getting a B, an improvement over his past few grades. He was very patient, helpful and knowledgeable about the subject.
