About Daniel


Bio

I have a very wide range of experiences--farm laborer, carpenter, student, teacher, paralegal, Spanish teacher, ESL teacher, librarian--all of which have taught me that my greatest skills are my sense of humor, and my sympathy and respect for learning of any subject or skill, from stacking wood to appreciating Shakespeare. I am from an upper middle-class background, went to an IVY League school, but have mainly worked with poor and immigrant laboring communities.

I have a very wide range of experiences--farm laborer, carpenter, student, teacher, paralegal, Spanish teacher, ESL teacher, librarian--all of which have taught me that my greatest skills are my sense of humor, and my sympathy and respect for learning of any subject or skill, from stacking wood to appreciating Shakespeare. I am from an upper middle-class background, went to an IVY League school, but have mainly worked with poor and immigrant laboring communities.
Because I am poor at mastering mechanical skills (some of which I've perforce had to learn), I can sympathize with people who have difficulty learning academic skills.
I have spent the last 10 years teaching English and other skills to undocumented Hispanic migrant workers. I speak fluent Spanish, albeit using Mexican slang and idioms. I get great satisfaction from seeing people gain confidence and a sense of their own value and worth. I foster that as a tutor and as a person. I view my students as my equals in every respect, and a value them as people, whether they learn quickly or slowly.

I have a sense of humor, patience, and a long history of learning and teaching Spanish (and English) at all levels.

I also have passion and a deep appreciation of fine writing and literature--and teaching everything from kindergartners to advanced college students.

I am very accessible--and will always give you more, much more, than just my time.

As a town and school library director for approximately 16 years, I was in charge of developing book collections. As a result of this awesome responsibility, I read a great number of books, and an even greater number of reviews in the NY Times Book Review, New Yorker magazine, School Library Journal, New York Review of Books and other publications. Such a large amount of reading, as well as an education in English Literature, creates an above-average vocabulary.
