About Daniel

Thanks for looking at my profile. First, I'd like to give you a little background information so you can understand why I've decided to offer tutoring services, and how my experiences qualify me. I graduated from Marshall University in 2004 with a bachelors in Biological Science (3.95 cumulative GPA.) Though I had intended to enter medicine, and though I was accepted to WVU and Marshalls medical schools, I became increasingly unhappy with certain realities of the profession until I walked away altogether. Since 2004, I've dabbled with everything from mechanical engineering to novelar writing.

My tutoring experience is varied. I have tutored friends and classmates in high school and college courses, and I have tutored younger children through local church after-school programs. I can tutor a wide variety of subjects, from history to literature, but I specialize in biology, chemistry (my undergraduate minor), writing and grammar.

I cannot define my tutoring methods because my methods change to adapt to the learning style of the student in question. However, except where the subject demands otherwise, I take a conceptual approach to teaching, as memorization is worth much less than understanding. Again, thanks for reading, and I look forward to helping with your tutoring needs.

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.

Study Skills

I've tutored study skills since graduation from college with my bachelors degree in 2004. I have tutored elementary and highschool ages in study skills, and my students have shown significant increases in test scores as well as confidence and reduced overall study time. I have worked with children with ADD and ADHD, and have improved their study skills significantly enough that the students were released from remedial college classes they were otherwise required by the university to attend.
