About Daniel

I graduated from Pittsburgh Central Catholic H.S. in 2002 and earned my B.S. in Psychology in 2008 from the University of Pittsburgh along with related fields in Neuroscience and Administrative Justice. I have worked in special education settings with children with mental and behavioral disorders such as autism, aspergers, ADHD, ODD, PDD, Schizophrenia and Tourettes. I have also worked for an agency where I traveled to homes and implemented treatment plans set forth by a Psychiatrist and Behavioral Specialist as well as aided in school work. I currently work with Juvenile Delinquents for a Non-Profit organization.

I have also worked for an Independent Software Company where I worked in testing, manufacturing and installations. I gained invaluable experience working side by side with esteemed software developers and engineers.

My tutoring methods are on an individual basis. I would need a session to evaluate the most effective direction to proceed to recognize where strengths and weaknesses lie. I am extremely dedicated to education and conforming my tutoring to each students unique abilities.

I do understand that I may not be the right fit for everyone and will take no offense if anyone chooses a different direction because let's face it... the most important issue here is the education of you or your loved one.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you!

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 BS in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh. I have worked in a special education classroom setting and assisted children with ADHD, Autism, tourettes, Aspergers and other developmental disorders. I have also worked for an agency in Pittsburgh where I would go to the school or home of a child and assist him with his school work. These children also had diagnoses of the disorders listed above. In particular I worked in a classroom 1:1 with a child with ADHD and aided him with his school work, helped him study and kept him on track.

Autism

I have worked in a special education setting in Pittsburgh 1:1 as a PCA with a child diagnosed with Autism and psychosis and as a TSS with early intervention within the Wraparound Program. I have worked at Skills of Central PA as a Program Specialist in vocational training. I also was involved with PPL services where I worked in the community with a 24 year old male diagnosed with Autism and Bipolar disorder. I am trained in mental health first aid and crisis intervention.

I graduated from The University of Pittsburgh in 2008 with a B.S. in Psychology. I currently am employed at a company servicing seniors in Altoona, PA.

Psychology

I earned a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh. I have worked in the Mental Health field for 3 years. My education was more science-oriented. I had a related field in neuroscience and a minor in Administrative Justice. My tutoring methods involve getting to know the student and developing an individualized way of tutoring, since we all learn differently. In a one on one setting this works well and my complete focus can be that student.
