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.

Prior to hiring Daniel, I read his bio that he has experience working with different types of children. My child has behavioral issues which contributed towards him falling behind academically in school. Daniel developed a rapport with my son. Their sessions typically starts with him asking how my son’s day was in school, and to me personally, that means something. Daniel has also been actively corresponding with my son’s teacher, so that they can develop a plan to help my son. After each session with Daniel, my son feels more comfortable and confident of his writing process, and going to class the following day, he always feels proud to show his teacher the work he did. I highly recommend Daniel as a tutor.

We asked for Daniels help in a more difficult situation, a 19 year old with dyslexic indications. Daniels professional tutoring and his personable positive input has helped this student move forward. We cannot thank him enough!

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 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 was fantastic. With our son, he managed the perfect mix of pushing him to improve and positive encouragement. With us (the parents), he was very patient and supportive of what we were trying to do. The fact that he was able to do this 100% remote is particularly exceptional. Strongly recommend him for reading and writing.
