Introduction: Hi, my name is Daniel. I have a master's degree in education and have been a certified special education teacher working in the Chicagoland area for 15 years. I am also a certified Orton Gillingham tutor. As a distinguished special education teacher, I have worked with a wide range of students in various settings. I have tutored students from 2nd grade through college. I have a passion for teaching struggling students how to read. Based on overwhelming research, this requires the use of an explicit or synthetic approach to phonics. I have many years of experience using the Wilson Phonics Program and the Orton-Gillingham approach and have seen tremendous student growth using this approach. These programs utilize a multi-sensory approach to reading, phonics, and spelling. I provide all materials and genuinely value the relationships I build with students. I truly believe that positive relationships with students are instrumental to their academic growth! There is no better feeling than experiencing the transformation of struggling students as they learn to read! If your child is struggling with a comprehension or fluency issue, I will definitely address that as well. We have several other amazing tutors on our team. Along with several other exceptional Orton Gillingham tutors, we are fortunate to have a genuinely excellent ACT/SAT prep guide on our team! He gives students all the necessary details and preparation to feel calm and well-prepared. Lastly, we also tutor K-12 math and science and can assist college students with reading comprehension and writing. I look forward to hearing from you, and please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about the curriculum, scheduling lessons, etc.

Daniel is a good English teacher. He is calm, patient, and professional. Every time he finished an English class with my son, he will send me an email with the summary of the progress. He will point out what is improved, what he covered in the class, what's need to work more, etc. My son feels very comfortable to speak with Daniel and respects him very much. In the past, my son didn't write a full sentence nor check the grammar of his writing such as email. After three months, I see his writing on email is totally different. Daniel also knows how to communicate with a teenager, as I think it is very important because it requires a lot of patient. My son never complains the class is boring and he enjoys it. This is important :)Daisy

Daniel has worked with 4 of my children from 1st grade to 6th grade. He is absolutely amazing. During the covid 19 school shut down I was feeling overwhelmed and having Daniel help my children with their math and language was such a blessing.

Daniel helped my 9-year-old little brother with understanding sight words, consonant digraph, grammar, and writing. He helped him become a better reader, too. I'm very satisfied with the progress my brother has made since the tutoring started. Daniel's teaching skills are excellent. He incorporates different learning methods to help my little brother, who struggles in school and has an IEP learning disability.

Daniel is a very experienced excellent tutor. My son has been working with Daniel since summer, and he liked him from the first lesson, after the class he was very happy and said he can understand me! . Daniel really respect and recognize his personality and different way of learning, to find the best method to help him. Now he is very confidence in his writing.Thanks Daniel!

Our 12 year old son was diagnosed with dyslexia so we needed a tutor who could help him with the areas he was struggling with. We interviewed and tried a couple of tutors. None of them worked out- either we werent happy with them or they couldnt connect with our son and he wasnt happy with them. Then we found Daniel. We were very happy with our initial meeting with him. Jesse immediately hit it off with him. Daniel is always responds to any follow up questions we have had and he records each lesson so we can review them. If one on-line platform hangs up he easily switches to another platform to continue on. The first parent /teacher conference we had after they had been working together was great. All the teachers said they could see an improvement in the areas he struggles with and could see the techniques Daniel and he had been Working on becoming part of our sons schoolwork. A great testament to Daniels ability to help a student be more successful. We are so pleased we found Daniel!
