About Daniel

I have been living in Tiverton since I retired from the Air Force years ago. Counting my time now as an ROTC instructor, I have a total of 26 years' military service and for the last fifteen years or so, I have been employed as a teacher/instructor, first in Massachusetts and now in Rhode Island and I am a certified History teacher in both states as well. I am also a published writer, having had my first novel published last year.
The fields I have most experience with are:
Public Speaking
Writinng Essentials
History
Military History
Communications
Management
Life After School
Public Service
I also have experience in the fields of World History, European History, Resume Writing, Survival, and a few more. I've been able to work with children from all different backgrounds, and my greatest joy is when they return to offer thanks for the information I was able to pass on to them.
Feel free to contact me for your children and I will set up an appointment to meet with you and your child. Thanks

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.

AFOQT

I have been helping my students prepare for and take the GED exam for many years. The GED exam is not easy to pass and I have found that with the help of GED exam prep books and a little encouragement from an educator, that students do better. I have been teaching a variety of subjects within my school district and have filled in as a substitute teacher in a majority of fields. I believe that I can help students succeed.

ASVAB

JROTC instructor for 14 years
30 year member of the Air Force
Successfully assisted over a dozen people pass the ASVAB
I am a certified teacher and have used the knowledge I have learned to assist students in passing not only the ASVAB, but other exams as well.
Spent 9 years as an instructor.
Assisted in administering the ASVAB more than two dozen times

Career Development

Currently I teach a required course for the Air Force dealing with career paths. I have developed lessons and tests for my students, covering things such as resume writing, college preparation, career searching, and basic needs. In my lessons, I have created specific topics, such as how to find and lease or buy a car, how to find an apartment within ones budget, and how to accomplish day to day tasks, such as check writing, or how to open a savings account. At the present time, I am teaching twenty students about what they can expect after they graduate from school. I have also talked at great length about military service and what life is like in this career choice.

Public Speaking

I am currently teaching a course for a JROTC unit involving Public Speaking in a public high school in Rhode Island. One of the ways I have found to be successful in this subject is to have my students face their fears by teaching an entire period, allowing them to develop a lesson that puts them at ease, while delivering the main points of the lesson.

Social Studies

I graduated from Stonehill College in Social Studies, and am currently employed as a teacher in a Rhode Island public high school. Though I am not currently employed in that field, I graduated with honors and feel that I can assist a student in this field.

Study Skills

I have been a certified History teacher for over fifteen years and have helped students study and prepare for exams, mostly on a secondary level and feel that I would have the qualifications to assist older students who are looking to brush up on previous subjects before taking an exam.
