I have been a math and computer science tutor since 2009 and have individually worked with over 200 students ranging from elementary school, middle school, high school and undergraduate college students. 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 150 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 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 an
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 sense to her. She finally clicked with a tutor and we will be using him again!MARTA, 5 lessons with Danny
Professional, Knowledgable, Patient, and Kind Tutor
Danny works with my son on his Beast Academy supplemental math curriculum. He is extremely professional, knowledgable, patient, and a pleasure to work with. My son is 7 years old, and he found Danny to be very kind, patient, and encouraging during each session. He conveys the material in way that was easy for my son to understand, and he takes extra care and time to ensure my son always understood how to solve each problem independently. He is a very positive and engaging tutor, and my son always looks forward to his sessions with him. He communicated with me weekly on my son's progress and was always very prepared for each session. I would highly recommend Danny to anyone.Judy, 12 lessons with Danny
Danny L is obviously a seasoned master at his craft! He doesn’t just explain things immaculately so the students clearly understand but actually gets inside the student’s brain to explain that student’s process of thinking to him/her so that they can either keep doing what they’re doing or change their way of thinking and explains exactly how to do that. He is brilliant beyond words! It’s no wonder why he has loads and loads of 5-star reviews. You will feel the same once you experience his teaching too - no wonder his students are so highly successful! He also happens to be such a humble and gentle person - comforting and patient and cares deeply about his students. He is “Master Yoda” of not just math but the teaching of math and as a person. He re-ignited my daughter’s love for and deepened her interest in math after years of she being in “advanced math” (2 grade years ahead) in traditional school where she had not felt that math could be this much fun). Thank you!!Elena, 13 lessons with Danny
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.Jyothi, 2 lessons with Danny
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, 25 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.Jennifer, 19 lessons with Danny
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 !!Shilpa, 66 lessons with Danny
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.Daphne, 2 lessons with Danny

SAT Math Tutor
Danny did an excellent job tutoring our son for the math portion of the SAT. We've had several math tutors of the years and my son said Danny was the best he's had. Very thorough, very patient and great at explaining difficult concepts. Highly recommend him!Jennfier, 2 lessons with Danny
