About Dan

I have 12 years of experience tutoring students of all ages. I tutor students in math form 1st grade through pre-calculus. I am a great test prep tutor. I have helped students improve their Sat math scores by 60 to 80 points. I have helped students greatly improve their scores on the ACT, PSEO, OGT, and GED exams. I also have my MBA and tutor most business courses including college courses such as Accounting I and II Intermediate Accounting Corporate Finance and Statistics to name a few. I also tutor College Algebra. I am currently the Math and Business Tutor at a local college. I have previously ran a math learning center for children from 1st through 12th grades. My approach to tutoring is that everyone has a different learning style. It is part of my job to figure out the best tutoring methods that coincide with the student's learning style. The main thing I try to build in all my students is an understanding of the material at hand. Once they understand, a certain amount of confidence begins to swell within. Once a student feels confident in his/her studies, he/she is on the way to a lifetime of learning and exploring. I have 12 years of experience tutoring students of all ages.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra I to me is the most important component of mathematics.
All Elementary Math flows into Algebra, and, all Higher Math flows out of Algebra. A student who successfully learns Algebra will go forth with confidence into many other subjects even those outside the realm of math. I break Algebra 1 down into easy to understand terms that the student can use to tackle even the toughest problems.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 builds on many of the concepts learned in Algebra.
Algebra 2 expands upon the quadratic equation. It deals more with the quadratic formula and quadratic functions. It also goes more in depth with systems of linear inequalities. Algebra 2 also introduces Exponential growth and decay, Logarithmic functions, Financial Equations, and Sequence and Series problems. Other concepts may include Radical Functions, Matrix Math, and Linear Regression Analysis.

GED

The math portion of the General Education Development test (GED) is made up of two parts of 25 questions each. The test is made up of Basic math, Algebra, and Geometry. Some problems are straight calculation and some are word problems. You will need to know how to work with positive and negative integers, fractions, squares and square roots. You will be allowed to use a calculator for part of the test. I help students pass this exam by not only showing them how to tackle the math problems, but also how to implement successful test taking strategies.

Geometry

Geometry is math subject made up of points, lines, angles, planes, and shapes. There is a lot of Algebra in Geometry. Many problems involve solving for x. There also are a lot of proofs required in a Geometry class. Theorems, Postulates and Definitions are used to complete these proofs. These require a bit of memorization. I am able to show students how to quickly recall terms and methodology needed for solving for x as well as completing proofs.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is the stepping stone to Algebra. Prealgebra teaches the order of operations, and, reinforces the foundational math concepts already learned. The main purpose of Prealgebra is to serve as a preparatory course for Algebra and beyond.

PSAT

17 years tutoring experience.
I have worked with several PSAT students to significantly improve their exam scores.

QuickBooks

I have used QuickBooks to operate my business. I have prepared invoices, entered accounts payable data, prepared and printed checks, tracked expenses, prepared and processed payroll, prepared financial reports and statements. I also set up company data for multiple companies.
I have worked with both QuickBooks Pro and QuickBooks on line. I also have my MBA.

SAT Math

SAT math is made up of the following content: Computations, Algebra, Geometry, Probability and statistics and some Algebra II. The test is worth a total of 800 points. It is broken into three sections. Section one is made up of 20 multiple choice questions, The second section is made up of 8 multiple choice questions and 10 fill in the grid questions. The final section is made up of 16 multiple choice questions. I find that many students have not been exposed to enough Algebra II to do well on these questions. I try to solidify what knowledge a student already has and introduce some key concepts not yet covered in Algebra II. I assess a student's number sense and base our sessions on building on this number sense. I also give tips on test taking strategies. Lastly I have a goal to relieve a student's anxiety about the test by building confidence within them.

Great teacher!

Dan explains the lesson in easy to understand terms, which is helping my daughter understand the concepts that she previously was not grasping. He is very easy to contact and is flexible, working with my daughters busy schedule. Plan to continue studying with him!
