Overview

If you are struggling with Algebra and would like some help getting past some roadblocks from someone with a degree in Math who took first and second place in the math competitions at his university, studied computers science at Stanford, and worked for organizations like NASA, Oracle, and IBM, I would be happy to help.

My hope and belief is that many of my students will get over their fear, catch some of the concepts they are missing, and blow past anything I have done and pass me up!

I'm Daniel J. D. I received my BA in Mathematics in 1986 with a minor in Physics at California State University, Fresno and studied Computer Science at the graduate level at Stanford Universe in the 1990's. During my undergraduate studies at Fresno State, I competed in the math competition two years taking first place one year and second place the other year and beating out engineering, physics, math and computer science students.

I have worked in highly technical roles at NASA, Ingres, Oracle, and PeopleSoft and built an IT Department as a Director of Operations and IT and Chief Systems Architect for a successful Internet startup company.
