Expertise

I Tutored with C2 Education for 6 years and as a private, in home tutor at various points in my life. I have assisted countless students with standardized test prep, school coursework and enrichment programs. Additionally, I do software training for small and mid-sized businesses.

I am not a tutor who watches a student do homework, but one who teaches students how to think and how to build a repertoire of problem solving skills that best suit their learning style.

Teaching Methods

I use physical models for concepts whenever possible. One can discuss equations all day, but when a student can see a reaction, a demonstration or a real world example of how a concept applies they will better remember and utilize it. My varied interests allow me to tailor these connections to things that are related to topics of most interest to a student.

I always pair instruction with practice to ensure a student not only knows the material, but can apply it in creative ways.

Daniel has been working with my daughter for a few weeks and he is proving to be very effective. He has a solid background in the subject matter and has been successful communicating to and reinforcing the concepts with her. He is very conscientious and communicates with me after each lesson, ensuring that I have been kept abreast of the progress achieved. Our goal is to see improvements in test scores and to potentially build a better foundation for future electives. Daniel has been a key resource for us and is a pleasure to work with. He is flexible, professional, and a great fit so far.

Daniel worked for me as a private tutor for about 4 years and was a great employee. He was always very thorough with his lessons, but flexible to ensure both the student and parent were satisfied, as well as my own operational needs. A student is lucky to be working with Daniel
