Hi there! Ny name is Daniel and I'm a professional Math & Science Tutor. Since I was very little, I have always had a huge passion for math and science. Not only did I excel in these subjects, I really enjoyed learning about them as well! From middle school all the way through college, I would help siblings, colleagues, and classmates with their math homework, and I wasn't just doing the homework for them - I would spend time making sure that they actually understood the material. That is the most rewarding part for me - seeing that "aha" moment whenever someone I'm helping finally understands a concept he or she has been struggling with. This is the exact approach I take now when tutoring my students - by making sure my clients actually understand and fully comprehend the material, I'm empowering them to take the skills they have learned from me and use them not just to make better grades, but to be able to better teach themselves new concepts in the future.
I know how difficult it can be to keep up in a class you are struggling in - classes can often be very large, and most teachers simply don't have enough time to cater to each student individually. This is the advantage that I bring as a tutor - I recognize that all students have different learning styles, and one of the most important things for me as a professional tutor is to connect with my clients so that they know that I understand exactly where they are coming from and why it is that they are struggling. Once that connection has been established, I create a customized tutoring plan that maximizes my clients strengths and puts him or her in a position to succeed going forward. My tutoring style isn't just about helping my clients with their math homework, or even doing well on a single exam - I teach my clients how to learn successfully, so that they have new skills that they can take with them out into the classroom that will be valuable for the rest of their academic careers. On top of it all, I love helping people, and I think that carries over into the relationships I develop with my clients - I know that I couldn't be successful in a domain like this if I wasn't passionate about the subject!
Math has always been a subject that has come very easily to me. I aced all of my math classes throughout high school and college, was 2 years ahead of my grade, and often took 2 (or more) math classes in a single year. Of course, you may begin to wonder if that means that I won't be able to relate to students who struggle with math, but I have not found that to be the case. I have always loved helping people understand math, and I have a unique ability of being able to put myself into other people's shoes and seeing things from their point of view. All throughout college, as I was taking advanced statistics classes, I would always receive high praise from my classmates, thanking me for my ability to explain difficult concepts to them and help them understand problems that just weren't clicking for them.
Aside from tutoring, my passions are yoga, partner dancing, spending time outdoors, nutrition and health, and spending time with close family and friends. If you think I could be of service to you, please reach out to learn more - I would absolutely love to help! I love learning and helping people, so being able to help others learn in academia is one of the great joys of my life.
