About Daniel

I am a junior undergraduate student at Baylor University majoring in BS Biology with a minor in Business Administration. I am part of the Baylor 2 Baylor medical program, a guaranteed medical track through which I will matriculate to Baylor College of Medicine in 2018, where I plan to obtain MD and MBA degrees. I have been tutoring for four years, working both for a company as well as privately for the high school I graduated from, helping students prepare for exams and holding preparatory lessons during the summer for their upcoming courses. My experience lies primarily in the science and mathematics courses, predominantly teaching biology and chemistry. I have taught multiple courses in preparation of standardized tests, including the ACT, SAT, and ISEE examinations. Recently, I taught an aquatic biology course through Baylor University. I also have experience teaching students with ADHD, Asperger's, and other disorders as I volunteered with the Variety Children's Club of St. Louis.

My extracurricular interests lie in sports and music - I played soccer and swam competitively for most of my life and have played piano for 13 years and continue to do so. I truly enjoy teaching students and believe that I learn as much from the students as they do from my lessons. I strive to help students achieve their academic goals by providing a new and exciting approach to their classes outside of their textbook that will entice a passion for their subject material. I believe that obtaining a good relationship with the student is vital to helping them succeed academically, and aim to teach students productive study methods that will be beneficial to them not only in the course under examination, but also to develop study habits that will assist them in their future academic endeavors as well.

My academic experience primarily lies in the science and math courses, as well as standardized test preparation. I have excelled in general biology and chemistry courses as well as organic chemistry, genetics, and physics. In mathematics, I primarily teach geometry, algebra, and pre calculus, and have taken multiple courses in calculus and statistics. I have tutored many students for the SAT, ACT, and ISEE exams. I scored a 35 on the ACT, 2220 on the SAT, and achieved national merit on the PSAT. I believe that success in these tests lies primarily in test taking strategy and time allocation rather than mere ability to find the answers.

My availability varies greatly depending on my own academic schedule, but I have never had any issues accommodating lessons for students. Contact me to set up a lesson plan!
