Hi there! I am Danny. And a I am passionate about teaching! I have spent the past twenty years teaching Math and Physics courses at a public high school in Virginia. As these courses are the bedrock of so many fields of expertise and further study at the collegiate level, I know that it is essential for students to be well-grounded in these subjects. Therefore, I have dedicated my career to developing methods that are effective at training students how to "think" like a mathematician or physicist. It is such a joy for me to watch academic frustration melt away!
After minoring in Mathematics in college, I spent the next twenty years teaching high school Algebra and Geometry courses. Over the years, I have taught over 1,000 students. I have witnessed many kids transform from "math-fearers" to "math-fans"! Year after year, my students have been highly successful on the End-Of-Course tests administered by the state. It is a thrill for me to teach students how to think mathematically so that math actually makes sense and is not simply a method of "getting the right answers."
As for physics, I fell in the love with "the granddaddy of all science" when I was a high school student. I attended James Madison University on a physics scholarship and graduated with a B.S. in Physics four years later, having been awarded the "Outstanding Junior Physics Major" and "Outstanding Senior Physics Major" awards by the Physics Department. Although I had the knowledge base and skillset to continue my study of physics at the graduate level, I realized that my passion and joy was sharing physics with others. This is what drove me into teaching full-time, eventually obtaining my Masters in Physics Education along the way. I am fully aware that physics can be an intimidating and confusing subject. Therefore, I make it my goal to teach students how to think like a physicist, changing "intimidation" into fascination and "confusion" into wonder!

Patient and Friendly Tutor
Danny was amazing! He helped my daughter go from knowing absolutely nothing about physics to being able to understand how to solve and workout problems like he showed her. He is very patient with her and after each tutoring session she is more confident in what she’s doing. Thank you for doing what you do Danny!Emily, 24 lessons with DannyTutor responded:

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.
Danny's method of teaching physics makes it easy to understand.My daughter who is in 11th grade now understands the concepts well and is able to take her unit tests with confidence. Excellent tutor!Rachel, 3 lessons with Danny
Danny’s personal care and academic competence have enriched our 16yr old twins in Geometry and Algebra 2. He goes beyond the lesson and reaches the heart of the students and family! Danny is a phenomenal person and educator!! He is patient, uses strategies towards clarity and follows up to ensure the quiz or test reflects the time spent! What a jewel of a find is he!!LaTerra, 9 lessons with Danny
Danny was attentive and helpful and followed up with genuine interest after the tutor session. Our son found him to be very knowledgeable and "cool". We recommend him!Carson, 4 lessons with Danny
Danny is a very knowledgeable and patient
Danny provided physics tutoring for my kids. His style of teaching was very helpful. He made sure my kids understood what is being taught before proceeding to the next lesson. We will be retaining his serviceSunday, 9 lessons with Danny
Patient and Responsive
Danny has been a tremendous help in my redemption to do better in my Physics 2 course. He patiently guided me in reviewing topics from prior physics needed to answer practice problems for the current semester. I wish I have met him earlier and highly recommend him to anyone struggling with problem-solving details.Timothy, 5 lessons with Danny
I had to do two labs but because it was a summer course, I forgot almost everything that I learned. Danny was understanding and went over the equations and formulas without over complicating them. I was able to remember and we were able to get through the labs quickly and efficiently. Would definitely use them again as a tutor.Nate, 1 lesson with Danny
I tried 3 other physics tutors before giving Danny a try. I loved his tutoring style so much that I stuck with him for the rest of my college level physics II class. He keeps a really good pace and gives you just the right amount of time to try and think about/solve the problems before stepping in. His notes were very clear and colorful whether it was typed notes, written notes or notes with diagrams. Danny was also very adaptable. He helped with labs, written assignments, online assignments, exam reviews and understanding difficult concepts from lectures. Overall Danny is very patient, kind and knowledgable. I would highly recommend Danny for your physics or math classes. I enjoyed all of our tutoring sessions together which is really saying a lot because physics was such a struggle for me.Kayla, 31 lessons with Danny
Fast and supportive
Danny jumps right in to assist my daughter with review of her high school Honors Physics and put her at ease, made her feel she could understand the topics quickly and confidently.Priscilla, 6 lessons with Danny
