I love teaching, and I love Math. I've been preparing students to succeed in Math for the past 5 years and my students have gone on to master the subject. I specialize in online lessons. I typically use the student's book or my own materials. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Daniel M.

I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothing is too difficult once we understand how to do it!

I’ve always struggled with math. It was no surprise that I had significant trouble with the GRE Quantitive section. I had tried one tutor before working with Daniel. I ended up getting the same score that I had on past tests and I felt that I was never going to get past the hurdle. I decided to find another tutor and after looking around a while and messaging several tutors on TakeLessons I connected with Daniel. Hands down he has the best methods for how I learn. He provides lesson plans, homework, and goes through every problem step by step to ensure that you are comprehending. He also tests your knowledge by having you basically teach him what you’ve learned. If you can’t explain it, then you don’t know it, is what he says. It has been awesome working with him and I enthusiastically recommend him to anyone that needs help with math at any level.

Daniel is a good teacher and recommends good text books as well. Due to my time difference in locations of Daniel and me, He was often having his dinner or taking care of his child which made the connection a little difficult to hear. But he tried hard to make certain I understood the material. Overall, a good teacher.

First time user on Take Lessons. He couldn't provide all the study material as first initiated and seldom sat in a quiet area to provide lessons so the lesson would be distracted by noises in his background. Dissatisfactory service. Highly disappointing.

My oldest has struggled for the first time in a math class this past year. At the beginning of the year I accepted he just didn't mesh with his teacher's style but as his grades continued to plummet and everything we tried at home wasn't working I finally reached out for a tutor. I wasn't sure how well Algebra 1 tutoring would work this far into the school year (Q4) . I'm not a stickler for grades, I just need to know my children understand the concepts they are supposed to be learning. And I needed someone who could really evaluate Tommy based on where he is now, what he's missed in the classroom and how to give him that solid foundation in Algebra 1 so he can be more successful next year as he goes into Geometry and eventually into Algebra 2. It was a very frustrating year for both Tommy and myself to have him struggle in it despite all the support he had from his step-dad and I and virtually none from his teacher. I was watching my son who every previous year LOVED math start to just hate it.

So I turned to Daniel M. as a bit of a last resort. I wasn't sure if he would be able to evaluate where Tommy was struggling, shore up the missed/misunderstood concepts and teach in such a way that Algebra made as much sense to Tommy as all his previous maths did.

I have to say, Tommy and I are both very impressed with Daniel after just the first lesson! Tommy came away excited with how easily it was for him to absorb the information Daniel laid out for him and how it's 100% a better fit for Tommy to understand the equations after just the one lesson! I wish I had the money to just hire Daniel for tutoring much more often, but thankfully he is so good at breaking down where the confusion lies on Tommy's end and explaining it in such an easy to comprehend way that I am fully confident Tommy will end this year on a high note in both his confidence and his grades. I can't wait to see where we go from here!

I have been using takelessons for years. Sadly I have to write my first bad report. This instructor could not be on time with any of the lessons. We had to call, text and skype text him to remind him we had an appointment. We had to put forth so much effort chasing him down for tutoring. I gave him the three strikes your out rule and he failed us. Good luck trying him out. :-(

Daniel has been such a huge help in tutoring my 12 year old son! I had chosen Daniel to help my son, as one of the many options of homeschooling. It didn't take long to choose him after I had the great reviews so many people had left for him, and he is beyond affordable!
My son is also very happy with Daniel. He likes that he teaches him different ways of solving different problems. It makes it easier for him. He rather Daniel teach him math as well because he says Daniel is more patient with him then I. I have to agree. I also, no longer have to deal with the preteen hormones giving his.mom a hard time. He respects Daniel and doesn't want to let him down.
As an added bonus Daniel teaches Spanish, for the same fee! So very affordable!!
Zach choose not to learn Spanish, however, we licked out because Daniels lovely amd very patient wife teaches/tutors French The language Zach elected to learn first. It was a win win for us. We couldn't be more satisfied!
If you need help in Math, this guy is the way to go! I can't stress it enough!

Daniel is an amazing tutor…I just signed up to take more lessons with him. I have been out of school for more than 9 years now and Daniel has helped me tremendously on my quest to GMAT success. I was a little hesitant at first about taking lessons online through skype, but boy am I glad I did. If you are serious about taking the GMAT or as I like to call it “My Nemesis” and are contemplating getting a tutor, Daniel is your guy. He is patient, flexible with his schedule, and his methods of teaching are easy to understand. Overall it’s been an awesome experience with a very talented and professional educator.
