I'm a graduate of UCLA School of Engineering with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 9 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe in emphasizes subject fundamentals, a powerful and necessary tool for higher problem solving. This strategy has proven very effective regardless of the student's educational background or mental ability. Besides being knowledgeable, I am motivating, caring, and patient in guiding your student to academic success!

Executive Functioning is a separate realm that tutoring can assist in. It deals with cognitive processes including organization, time management, and study skills. Much of the difficulty students face in academic subjects can be attributed to the lack of executive functioning. They either cannot keep up with the pace and workload that advanced courses demand or haven't figured out the best way to study for themselves. I am able to assess a student's shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

Math:

• Elementary • Pre-Algebra • Algebra 1 & 2 • Geometry • Pre-Calculus

Nice guy , very helpful! , on time.

I was struggling with calculus 1 at SMC and felt very intimidated before Daniel came along. He helped me understand what calculus was all about and always explained new concepts clearly. Daniel went above and beyond his duties and was always on time. I ended up with an A and would highly recommend Daniel to any student with math needs.

Awesome experience with Daniel! He takes the time to guide you and review when necessary. Thanks Daniel, for the amazing results!

**Trigonometry**· In home

My son had one session so far and thought Daniel was very personable and knowledgeable. He really helped him understand and feel comfortable solving trigonometry problems. We set up additional times for tutoring.

**Microsoft Excel**· In home

Daniel helped me with many different mathematical obstacles while working with and teaching me excel. It was a great learning experience and I became a lot more experienced with excel.

**AP Calculus**· In home

Daniel is the perfect tutor for Math. We are using him for AP Calc and Honors Pre-Calc/AB. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Math tutor!!!! He has a lot of experience.

**ACT Test Prep**· In home

We just recently hired Daniel. So far, he was exceptional at explaining his services and listening to my son's academic needs. We hired him in preparation for the ACT. Daniel is customizing the ACT tutoring in relation to our son's learning style. My son was very pleased with his

first session with Daniel, and learned so much about strategies and the break down of the ACT, all in just one session. My son looks forward to continue working with Daniel.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Daniel. He is immediately responsive, thoughtful, caring, and an absolutely fantastic tutor. In just two weeks he helped raise my 7th grade son's algebra grade from a 36 to a 90! It doesn't get any better than that. We are already excited for our 5th grade son to work with Daniel in the future. Thank you Daniel for becoming a terrific addition to our family!

We got together to study for my Calculus Test. Daniel was so helpful that I continued to use him and even got a 107% on my mid-term. He is very flexible with lessons and I highly recommend him!

Had a good experience with Daniel who helped me learn basic computer and cell phone skills and I look forward to future lessons.

**Calculus**· In home

Daniel has tutored me through 2 years of college math including, calculus 2, calculus 3, linear algebra, and differential equations. He helped me on a weekly basis with homework assignments and preparing for tests. The way he taught cleared up all of my questions from lecture and changed my approach to math for the better. Thanks to Daniel's methods and thorough explanations, I earned A's in all my classes. If you seek a solid understanding of math and a professional tutor, I highly recommend Daniel.

Worked through each problem thoroughly so that I understood the question being asked and how to solve it.

Dan was a life-saver! My son was up against finals in Physics and Math, we found Dan and he was working with my son within 24 hours and explaining concepts that had never been effectively taught.. My son walked into his exams with more confidence and understanding and for that we are very grateful.

Over the last six months, Daniel has been tutoring me on and off for my intro to physics course. I do not have a strong background in science or math, but Daniel was always able to explain everything clearly and in detail. He knows how to answer your questions and really works hard to make sure you understand the material. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for help.

I feel compelled to share a great “find” I made last year. School had only been in session for two weeks before my kids came home lamenting that their AP Physics teacher left them totally confused and stressed out. Switching to a less demanding schedule wasn’t an option so I decided to look for some help. Lord knows, it wasn’t going to come from me or my husband! I found Daniel, a 2012 UCLA engineering grad who has been tutoring for many years. After the boys’ first meeting with him, the level of stress in our household plummeted and the boys did well on their first physics test. They ended up with A's in the class and doing well on the AP exam. We’ve decided to have him come regularly, just to make sure the boys understand the material and keep them confident. Daniel is able to help them with anything they don’t get in their calculus class as well.

So as you stare the next school year in the face, if your child has any difficulty with their studies, especially in math or physics, consider talking to Daniel. He’s a lovely young man and the boys really responded to him well.

Daniel is a great tutor. He effectively breaks down difficult concepts and makes them much simpler. He is very flexible with scheduling and very easy to reach. Having him as a tutor allowed me to raise my math grade from a D to an A.
