Hi everyone! My name is Daniel Cho, and I grew up in the Palo Alto area in South Bay. I graduated from Swarthmore College in Philadelphia, PA with a Special major in Dance and Education. Currently, I am in Cleveland as a professional ballet dancer with Verb Ballets. I went to a very academically rigorous high school, where I started to realize I wanted to pursue both my passions of dancing professionally and educating students. I remember how mentally taxing and strenuous the process of standardized testing and college applications was, and I want to share my own academic experiences to help current high school students. I have lots of experience with teaching English and Writing, most notably helping students write strong argumentative papers as well as teaching ESL. I strongly believe in the idea of a strong teacher-student relationship, where the teacher and student are both equals engaging in a dialogue of critical thinking. I also firmly emphasize tailoring the curriculum to the needs and experiences of the individual, since each student is different and therefore requires a distinctive learning approach.
