Introduction: We provide excellent customer service, usually immediate or within minutes for homework help or to set up a tutoring session. Online tutoring is also available through voice and a shared online whiteboard for step-by-step problem solving. We strive to get to the root of the problem be it a test-taking challenge or a problem with fundamental learning. Not very fond of your teacher? Unfortunately, this is often the case. We follow your own pace of learning to achieve results. We love the moment when a student finally understands a topic and starts building self-confidence. We can then use this to change the way a student thinks about a subject resulting in continual improvement and achievement. ABOUT ME: I'm a graduate of UCLA Engineering with a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 12 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: 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. We are able to assess a student's shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

Math Tutoring

Absolutely amazing I was struggling with Calculus but Daniel helped me get through it. Thanks to him I now know if there is a problem I’m stuck on or need help I can confidently ask him for math help.

Daniel and his tutors are true pros that know their subjects inside and out. Daniel has always responded to my texts and emails quickly and clearly. I've referred him to several friends, especially for his expertise with higher level math, such as high school and college calculus, and AP computer science. My friend's son was drowning in his USC calculus class which he needed to pass to graduate. Thanks to Daniel's team, he finally passed that course that he had previously failed and dropped. I think his calm and focused approach is helpful for students who are struggling with tough technical subjects. Definitely go with Daniel if you want your kids to really learn those challenging subjects with an experienced guide!

Math Tutoring

Daniel tutored my teenage son in Algebra and Geometry for over one year. During that time, my son's grades increased and he became more confident with Math, in general. His time with Daniel set him up for success in Algebra 2 this year (11th grade). Daniel was always on time, very polite and courteous with my son! Highly recommend his tutoring service.

My 15yr old was struggling with summer enrichment online geometry class and became stressed and unmotivated. He worked with her to help her understand assignments she was stuck on and gave her the confidence to continue working hard on the class to get it completed on her own.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The price quoted is a bundle rate. This means an agreed upon number of hours is paid for upfront and hours are used up as lessons are provided. You need not pay this before the first lesson. Typically, customers like to try out the first lesson and decide from then if the bundle is right for them. The pay-as-you-go rate is higher than the bundle rate and depends on the details of the customer request. • Minimum lesson time is typically 1 hour but may be longer depending on commute distances. • A higher rate may be requested for commuting expenses. • Customers who reach out automatically see my base rate ($60/hr) which may not apply to the subject/service in need. • I accept PayPal, Venmo, Check, Cash, or Credit Card (3% fee) • Cancellation Policy: At least 24 hours notice or charged for full lesson. • Purchases for bundle(s) or pay-as-you-go tutoring are non-refundable.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First I seek to understand the student's goals and level of understanding in a subject. Together, we can schedule lessons to achieve those goals in line with the student's timeline. Preparation of material is usually helpful before lessons if topic mastery is not yet met.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I hold an engineering degree from UCLA and with 10 years of tutoring experience, I have encountered countless scenarios that I can draw from to help with your unique challenges.
