Dan has been a wonderful tutor for my 16 year old son who was struggling and very frustrated in in his pre calculus/trig class. My son was skeptical of getting tutored on line instead of in person, but has found that the online method that Dan uses works exceptionally well and has been very effective and efficient. He enjoys Dan's sense of humor and passion for math, and most importantly, he is feeling like he finally understands!

Dan was very clear and patient. He started with the groundwork of the math problems and then helped me work through my problems. Was my first time with the online tutor experience and would definitely recommend Dan!

So, I picked up Dan last minute for tutoring our Senior in high school in Calculus 2. What we thought would take 2 hours only took 1 hour and our son was so excited about his work with Dan. We can't be more happy!

Dan is, without a doubt, the best tutor I've had. At first, I was very skeptical of doing a tutor session over a phone call using an app as a blackboard. After trying this method, though, I've found that I now much prefer it over face to face sessions. It is far more convenient, and I actually found the Jot app to be much better than an actual dry erase board (Due to functions such as drag-and-drop, quick erase, etc...) I've now used Dan for over a semester, and I've never understood a subject as well as I do calculus.

Dan is a wonderful tutor. He has brought so much confidence to my son. His communication online has been excellent. So grateful for his help! :)

Dan has done an excellent job tutoring my daughter in precalculus. While vacationing out of country she was able to arrange two tutoring sessions to help her with her online test. She passed her exam with flying colors.

My daughter had her first lesson with Dan last night...afterwards she came to me in tears of excitement...."I understand, I understand".!!

Dan is an amazing tutor! He helped me with problems that I alone would probably not be able to grasp. He explained things well and I also really liked his tutoring method. I definitely recommend him as a tutor!

His online technique is similar to a live version of Kahn academy which is amazing and helps me absorb the information so more throughly.

Laine was struggling with about four concepts on an upcoming calculus test. Her teacher had been out of town, and her usual resources for help weren't working out. We scheduled this session with Dan, and had a good experience. After her session, Laine checked her understanding by doing some problems, and found she had a better grasp of the material than when she had started. We'll know more after the test!

My son who is a freshman in UT Dallas took "Differential Calculus" lessons from Dan and was very impressed. He ranked him as the best mathematics teacher he has ever come across. Dan was very well prepared and has a unique skill to make it interesting by giving real life example. Dan made my son realize the importance and utility of these concepts in solving real life problems. I know my son and he is very difficult to be motivated to like mathematics. We have decided to have Dan as our "Go-to" tutor for all the years my son stays in college. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone who would not only like to learn but also enjoy the concepts in mathematics.

After one hour with Dan I felt so much better about an up coming exam. He is patient and was able to teach at my level. I actually found calculus fun after just one session.

Dan is very smart person. He teach me discrete mathematics and he was helpful to answer my questions and explain them very well. I really recommend him. Thank you Dan

Very knowledgeable and is willing to work with your schedule. I studied for 6 hours with him before my mid-term test and and went from feeling hopeless to confident.

Initially skeptical about online tutoring, Dan changed my mind during one session. The technology he utilizes made things a lot easier to collaborate on and helped me to learn the concepts in a more organized fashion. Dan was patient, informative and extremely pleasant to deal with. Strongly recommend him for math students of ANY course to give him a shot. He won't disappoint.

Dan was very flexible and easy to work with. He took an interest in how to best approach my sons learning style and meet his needs.

Dan is very easy to communicate with and is good at talking on my level. He knows what he is doing and has a good attitude.

Dan has helped me with the ACT Math guide and with Math 1050. He is excellent and I love the online format.

Math:

ACT Math,
Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I love teaching students to prepare for exams. The ACT is as much about test-taking skills as it is knowledge. I have helped many students increase their score dramatically.

My methods focus more on understanding the material than memorizing a few abstract steps to get to the desired end, what I call Monkey Math.

I can create the lessons entirely, or help answer questions from your study booklet.

I have 11+ years of teaching all types of math courses. As a math major, I understand the material much better than most college graduates.

I pride myself on methodologies that help students excel in tests, and general problem solving. I teach strategies that give confidence to work through any math problem, and to understand the material.

Algebra explains the general rules of mathematics. We are able to use variables to understand different possible values for functions.

I enjoy teaching the material in this course, but also filling in the gaps that may have been missing or forgotten from previous classes.

Calculus is my favorite subject. This is the capstone of basic math principles. With this class you are able to run calculations in just about any mathematical realm.

I have taught this class for over 10 years. I'm not sure why, but it seems that math teachers are set on confusing students by teaching them so much extra information that isn't needed in this class.

I can clear away all the extra confusion, and help you focus on the 3 basic principles of calculus: limits, derivatives, and integrals.

Differential Equations is a natural successor to the calculus series. In my university, it is now taught together with linear algebra. I have tutored this course, as well as ODEs alone several times, with all students passing. The wording in DEs can confuse some people. I like to explain it in simpler, made-up, reverse-calculus words. Of course, it's a playful way to explain nerdy, technical concepts.

Discrete Math was my favorite math course in my entire math degree. I loved how it dealt with the mathematics of integers, the kind of numbers that everyone uses every day. I enjoy teaching this subject. I have tutored this course start to finish several times, with all students passing with grades above their expectations. Of course, some things need to be looked up quickly during a session, but that's true of most upper level math courses.

For most of us geometry is the first time that math takes shape, literally. It can be quite confusing for those who have felt confident previously, and can require a new way of thinking.

I teach a method of thinking that helps students create the information needed, rather than trying to remember several pages of formulas.

I love to use the online drawing programs with this class. They make it so much easier to understand, and manipulate shapes.

Linear Algebra was a hard class for me at the time. It took more effort than any of my other math classes during my degree (mathematics). I have since wanted to conquer the subject. In reviewing the class several times, and through tutoring it alone and coupled with Differential Equations, I understand how to simply explain the very abstract ideas presented in linear algebra and show how it relates in today's computer and gaming worlds.

Prealgebra is the first real introduction into serious mathematics. We learn concepts of how to manipulate and "move" equations around to understand numbers.

I believe it is very important at this point to learn correct principles, and I love filling in the holes that have accumulated over the years.

I can also explain clearly why each principle is important in your academic future, and in life in general.

I enjoy using analogies and examples to help explain the upcoming principles in Precalculus, which is preparing you to understand infinitely large numbers and also infinitely small numbers.

As we understand these principles, we can do so much in our real world. Students who take Precalculus with me have a giant head-start for Calculus the next semester. You will also be able to understand the reason behind the math.

Probability is a lot of fun. It really helps us form a solid understanding of the world around us, and the likelihood of certain things happening. It is a skill we all try to use in our daily lives, but general "winging it" is often terribly inaccurate. It's fun to be able to understand the details of chance.

I like to take the time to use real examples, and to understand methods of checking your gut to decide if your answer makes sense. Probability is the branch of mathematics that we all can feel, and I like to apply that feeling to solidify the material.

The SAT is such an important test in our lives. Every bit of preparation for this exam can have massive influence on the rest of your life.

I love helping students prepare for exams. My methodologies help you to confidently approach, assess, and work through each problem, even when you don't fully understand the material.

I can help you study your own booklets, filling in gaps that you may have, or create the lessons completely on my own and take you to a point that you need to be to score well on the SAT Math section.

Statistics is a lot more about understanding terminology than difficult or new calculations. It can be quite difficult to keep them all straight.

I like to create a solid, defining list of the statistical terms. Understanding each of them in this specific way makes it easy to think through the questions and understand the seemingly foreign language of stats.

Also, as a math major, I understand the professional uses of statistics, which, if you understand, is almost a guarantee for a high-paying job in any market. Learning to like statistics will come in handy with any business, political, or serious buying decision.

Trigonometry feeds so much into math classes in the future. I like teaching this subject, because it allows us to run calculations about the physical world around us, reducing all directions into 2 dimensions.

There is a lot to learn, but my systems will teach you to generate the information needed, rather than trying to memorize several pages of formulas.
