##### About Dan

I graduated from high school at 14 and was accepted into Caltech. I went on to get a degree in physics. I was an A student, and my SAT scores were exemplary -- a perfect score in math and a near perfect score in the verbal section. I have ten years experience as a biophysicist working for Amgen. During that time I was the first person in the world to image an IgG antibody at room temperature using atomic force microscopy with sufficient resolution to distinguish the Fab and Fc domains. I also had the opportunity to lecture visiting students there on a few occasions, and I knew I enjoyed teaching. I have six years experience tutoring.

I offer fun and easy to understand tutoring for kids and adults of all ages in all levels of math and science from K-12 through college and beyond, and I have tutored numerous children and adults across that age range. I cater my style to the particular student and what I learn about them. I do improv as a hobby, and one thing I learned from that is the importance of listening. I take the time to listen to my students to figure out what they know and where their issues are. I like to have my students work out problems for themselves whenever possible. I often find that their biggest problem is a lack of confidence in their abilities, and they just need a tutor to help guide them and reassure them as they work out an answer to a problem. I am here to guide my students.

I enjoy math and science, and I am able to make difficult concepts easy to understand. What's more, my time as a tutor and as a stay-at-home father to an 11-year-old has taught me the importance of communication and understanding. When a student has difficulty understanding something, it's up to the teacher to find the appropriate way to communicate the material. I do that for my students.
