About Danny


Bio

I have been a math and computer science tutor since 2009 and have individually worked with over 150 students ranging from elementary school to high school seniors. I tailor each lesson to the student's requirements and current abilities, helping them to understand the concepts as well as providing homework assistance and test preparation including standardized tests such as the SAT (Math), SAT Subject (Math Level I and II), ACT (Math and Science), and AP (Calculus and Computer Science).

I have been a math and computer science tutor since 2009 and have individually worked with over 150 students ranging from elementary school to high school seniors. I tailor each lesson to the student's requirements and current abilities, helping them to understand the concepts as well as providing homework assistance and test preparation including standardized tests such as the SAT (Math), SAT Subject (Math Level I and II), ACT (Math and Science), and AP (Calculus and Computer Science).

I have also directly coached over 100 students in math team competitions such as the Washington State Mathematics Council (WSMC) Math Olympiad, Math Is Cool, MATHCOUNTS, and the Washington State Math Championship (Blaine), as well as individual competitions such as AMC 8 and 10 with a high level of success. I was the chairperson of the math competitions program at our local elementary school (Somerset) from 2009 to 2012 and at a private middle school (Eastside Catholic) from 2016 to 2018, leading over 200 four to eighth-grade students during the five-year period. I was responsible for academic and administrative tasks including conducting weekly study sessions, which an average of 30 students typically attended, as well as managing team registrations and timely communication with the parents. During my tenure and involvement, our teams participated in ten competitions and won an unprecedented 54 awards. I also led twenty-five students from 2014 to 2019 to prepare for the AMC 8 competition of which fourteen students won awards for either placing in the top 5% of the nation or earning one of the top three scores at their test center, which a minimum of 30 students typically attend per location.

Since 2018 I have been a mathematics instructor at AoPS Academy in Bellevue (https://bellevue.aopsacademy.org/school/team) teaching Middle School Contest Math, Prealgebra and Beast Academy (elementary school) classes.

I have a great passion for teaching and discovered my love of working with students when I was in 5th grade. I take pride and find it very rewarding to help students succeed in understanding the depth of complex topics, and show them how they are applied in real-world situations. In addition to the topics that I teach during our sessions, I can provide the students with customized problem sets to work on in order to allow them to practice the concepts they were taught.

My subjects include:

Elementary school concepts including, but not limited to, arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), fractions and decimals

Middle school courses such as Prealgebra and Algebra 1

High school courses including Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus and Calculus. Concepts such as mathematical proofs, trigonometry, logarithms, and probability and statistics.

SAT Math, and ACT Math and Science

Math competitions including Math Olympiad (grades 5 to 8), Math Is Cool (grades 4 to high school), Washington State Math Championship (grades 5 to 8), MATHCOUNTS (grades 6 to 8), AMC 8 and AMC 10

Computer science concepts, and programming in C, C++ and Java

I specialize in helping your students enhance their problem solving skills by providing efficient strategies and techniques to help them understand and apply the concepts learned. Students will not be taught to just memorize formulas without understanding the logic and meaning behind the calculations and how they link back to the underlying concepts.

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have taught numerous students how to solve systems of linear equations that involve three or more variables and equations using matrices. I also taught students how to add, subtract and multiply matrices, calculate its determinant and use it in Cramer's rule. In addition, I have taught students how to figure out the inverse of a matrix as well illustrate scenarios of when the identity matrix applies.
Logic,

Logic

I have taught many students the concepts and applications of mathematical logic. Topics include, but are not limited to, truth tables and Venn diagrams which I've applied to solving word problems that involve building a two-dimensional table and by the process of elimination determine which situations are and are not possible. I've also taught students set theory including intersection and union.

Very knowledgeable

Danny helped my daughter with Algebra 1. She said he was very knowledgeable and patiently explained the concepts to her. We will be scheduling more sessions with him.

Knowledgeable and patient

My son is an advanced 8th grader currently taking geometry. He is also preparing for AMC 8 and Math Counts type competitions. Danny did a great job helping him to prepare for these competitions as they are quite different from text book math. He is super helpful, knowledgeable and kind.

Denise, 12 lessons with Danny

We really enjoy Danny's tutoring

My son likes Danny very much. Danny has been tutoring my son on AMC8, and I can see major improvement of my son's problem solving skills. We will continue working with Danny on his math count and AMC10.

Awesome Tutor

Danny taught Mathematics to our son who is in Grade 7. Our son loves Danny's classes and finds them very helpful ! His teaching style is great .Danny is very well prepared for his lessons. He taught our son concepts related to AMC 8 . He showed excellent knowledge of the types of questions asked and how to approach those questions. Danny is very well informed about what competitive math exams preparation involves. We plan to continue requesting classes from Danny for our son. Highly recommended !!

Excellent and knowledgeable tutor

Danny tutored my son on his upcoming Math II Subject test. He provided a detailed assessment of what he needed to work on based on a practice test my son took before his first tutoring lesson. He shows a real passion for teaching and thoroughly explains math concepts as well as what to expect from the test. Will definitely use again.
