Daniel F.

Woodland Hills, CA

About Daniel

818-577-7000

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 students' shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

• Math:
Elementary • Pre-Algebra • Algebra 1 & 2 • Geometry • Pre-Calculus • Trigonometry • AP Calculus • Business Calculus • Differential Equations
• Physics:
AP Physics 1 & 2 • College Physics
• Test Prep:
SAT I & II • ACT • ISEE • SSAT • HSPT • GRE • and more
• MS Word • Excel • PowerPoint • Windows
• Mentorship:
• Grade Monitoring
• Teacher Collaboration
• Executive Functioning:
• Organization
• Time Management
• Study Skills
• Completely turned around achievement and self-confidence of mentored students
• Track record of student improvement particularly in math and physics

I was honestly speechless during my first lesson! Daniel G is the person I have been looking for in a long time. Daniel G is a great teacher! He has such a powerful and controlled voice and what a great personable guy! I just recorded a song tonight and I can already hear and feel a difference. After my voice changed, I kept getting frustrated trying to find the right teacher. I actually think I learned and improved more from my first lesson with Daniel than weeks with others. I'm almost hesitant to write this review in fear Daniel will have less time with me. 8-)

Janette F.

Burbank, CA

About Janette

I am a Texas certified bilingual teacher specialized in elementary testing grades in the math, reading, writing and science content areas. I tailor my teaching and use hands-on, visual, and auditory tools to give learning opportunities to my students according to their learning style. I have worked with students that have dyslexia, reading fluency deficiency, reading comprehension difficulty, lack math problem solving skills and many other learning obstacles that can lead to a student’s frustration and lack of motivation to continue learning.
My goal is to ensure that every student I come
in contact with has the necessary tools to be successful in their academic careers and surpass the hurdle of standardized testing.
I have two degrees, one in Public Relations and Spanish from the University of Houston and one in Bilingual early childhood though fourth grade teaching degree from the University of St. Thomas.

About Laurel

Hello! I'm Laurel, and I would love to help you or your child unlock your musical abilities and academic potential! I'm college educated in both classical music performance and English literature. In addition to teaching, I perform as a singer, organist, and pianist with musical groups all over the greater L.A. area, including the Pacific Chorale, the Charles Dickens Carolers, Nova Vocal Ensemble, and many others.

I'm happy to meet my students at any location near either Pacific Palisades or North Hollywood - I can teach music at any location with a piano, and I can tutor academic subjects
anywhere. Contact me for more information. I look forward to meeting you!

A note about availability - I keep this updated as accurately as possible, but because I travel over a wide area, your preferred time slot may not be possible for me, depending on the location of the lesson. Please contact me to discuss scheduling before you sign up.

If you choose to take lessons at my home location, please be aware that I have cats. If you have a phobia or allergy, this location won't be suitable for you.
