About Danny

I have been a math tutor since 2009 and have worked with over 60 students individually. My students range from elementary school to high school seniors. I tailor each lesson to the student's needs and current abilities, helping them understand the concepts as well as providing homework assistance and test preparation including standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT.

I have also coached over 100 students in team competitions such as Math Olympiad and Math Is Cool, as well as individual competitions such as AMC 8 with a high level of success. I was the chairperson of the Washington State Middle School Math Olympiad program at our local elementary school from 2009 to 2012, and led a group of over 150 four and fifth-grade students during the three-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 taking care of team registrations and timely communication with the parents. During my tenure and involvement, our teams participated in five competitions and won an unprecedented 42 awards. I also led a group of nine students in 2014 to prepare for the AMC 8 contest of which four students won awards for earning one of the top three scores at their test center.

I have a great passion for teaching and discovered my love of working with students when I was in college. 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 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, fractions and decimals

Middle school courses up to and including Algebra 1

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

SAT and ACT Math

Math contests including Math Olympiad (grades 5 to 8), Math Is Cool (grades 4 to high school) and AMC 8

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

Approved subjects

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.

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

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.

Prepared and Highly Skiled — Danny helped my senior with precal, she had an at home re-take due the next day. He logged into her online text and reviewed the associated chapters and pages. He reviewed a copy of her test and provided notes for her the day before he tutored her. We'd gone thru 3 previous tutors with not much success. This first session, she really felt like he clearly explained the concepts in a way that made s ...
