My passion for teaching is demonstrated by my commitment to each and every one of my students in helping them reach their full potential. I have been teaching and tutoring students for the past forty plus years. I have tutored a variety of subjects for students ranging from elementary school to post-college students. I love teaching and learning, and I am excited to share my passion with you!
I was humbled and honored by my recent national nomination for the Wallace A. Bacon Lifetime Teaching Excellence Award (NCA, Washington, D. C.) Locally I was voted "The Best of the Best" in 2017 and 2018, as "Best Teacher" in Elbert County, Colorado, a designation determined by the readers of Colorado Community Media publications. In 2010 I received the honor of being selected as the "Colorado Big Brother of the Year" by Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Colorado.
My Hobbies include filmmaking and video editing, and I am a true sports fanatic. Now that I am retired from public school teaching, I am excited to share nearly half a century of teaching expertise with VarsityTutors.com.
I hold a current professional teaching license, credentialed in Secondary Mathematics, Career and Technical Education (Audio, Video, Film, Technology, Broadcasting & Journalism) and Elementary Education.
FORMER CLIENT REVIEW: "Dan is the most amazing tutor and person. He changed the life of our son who was struggling with Math in middle school and high school. He not only taught my son Math, but also motivated him to be a better student. Dan is very caring and knows not only content, but the best instructional practices. Thanks to Dan's influence, my son went to his first choice college, got a degree in a math related field and is now a very successful young man working for a great company. I can't imagine anyone could find a better tutor or nicer person than Dan. I will forever be thankful that we found Dan when my son needed a great tutor. He truly is the best!" Dana G.
