Hello...My name is Dan and I was a high school math teacher for the 19 years since graduating from Harvey Mudd College in Claremont with a B.S. in Engineering (Class of '92). I taught 4 years at the Webb Schools (private high school in Claremont 1992-1996), 3 years at School of the Arts in San Francisco, and 12 years at San Leandro High School (near Oakland). I have tutored on and off for 5 years while helping middle school, high school, college students and older adults learn everything fro...

My son and I really liked Dan. He was able to identify my son's problem with Algebra. I feel confident my son will nail his next test.

He is a nice guy and friendly. He makes me feel comfortable while he was teaching me by smiling all the time. Also, he was explaining everything by giving a lot of examples. What I like about him that he gave me some tricks for my placement test. So, I recommend everyone of you to take session with him.

Dan knows how to teach, how to lay down foundational concepts, model them, build upon them, and continue testing for them. People in need of tutoring usually struggle with the concepts of a particular area and require this reinforcing type of instruction.

Dan went out of his way, on his own time and met with my junior son's high school junior teacher. He was able to see his last graded test and give my son feedback and guidance for going forward. This personal touch is much appreciated. He also briefed my son to show all work on next tests and participate in class. Dan is a great addition to our son's academic oversight/accountability parental emphasis.

He reviewed Algebra 2 with my son. He was clear and explained concepts well. He went over areas that students typically make mistakes on and explained ways to avoid these common mistakes.

Excellent tutor, My son Rishab enjoyed every class from Dan. He helps with full logic and tricks to remember. Hope to get help next year for calculus. Thank you!

To whom it may concern, You can't go wrong if you hire Dan to tutor your child, period! Dan helped my daughter in Algebra 2, jump from an "F" to and "A" in one semester. He was just so comforting and patient, showing an example, then letting the student complete soon after. Dan also showed great care in getting to know my daughter's interest. He would laugh with her and cuddle the cats, just as caring as you would want. Let me just add, if it wasn't for Dan, my daughter would not have walked the stage at graduation. I am forever grateful for the hard work Dan put in with my daughter, thanks so much! Cheers, Greg

Dan is a great tutor with great vibes. He makes tutoring fun, I enjoy his math tutoring more than math class in school. He's fast in teaching and patient when you just can't seem to get a lesson right the first try. I'm glad my first experience with a tutor was a great one.

I was so thankful when Dan reached out to me to offer to tutor my son in August. I was so impressed with his over 20+ years of teaching Math that I had him tutoring my son since the beginning of the school year in August 2014. I've held off putting any comments to this date because I was observing what type of impact he has on my son. I've given him a 5 star-Excellent each time because I've seen how he was able to make each tutoring session a fun learning experience while teaching my son how to successfully analyze each math problem. But the most important lesson that Dan has taught my son is the confidence to deal with any math problem in class. My son has turned into getting F's into getting B+'s in his math tests - a superb achievement to teach a high functioning autistic child. Dan has turned him from a student who has constantly struggled in Math into someone who now enjoys Math. My son now finds himself teaching other classmates who are confused in Math like he was before - an experience which according to him 'makes him very happy!' My deepest gratitude to Dan for being the greatest tutor and teacher my son has ever had.
- Rowena G. from Union City, CA
Dan is very patient and observant; he explains concepts very well, and is able to keep track of the areas you feel comfortable with and the one's you don't. I am very happy to have him as my tutor.
- Evelyn C. from San Leandro, CA
Dan did a phenomenal job of reviewing Algebra 1 with me in such a brief amount of time. As an educator who just needed a brief yet thorough review of the mathematical concepts related to Algebra, I was amazed at Dan's ability to easily weave in and out of the mathematical sequence. Dan is well versed in Algebra and I feel lucky to have found such an amazing tutor. I highly recommend him to everyone!
- Jennifer L. from Los Angeles, CA
He was very patient and took extra time to make sure I understood the problems and what I was doing wrong.
- Janice H. from Altadena, CA
Dan has worked with my daughter in Algebra II. He has been doing a great job explaining and demonstrating this complex subject matter to her. He not only went over the material but then asked her insightful questions to be sure she understood the subject material. I believe his engaging personality really helped make what could be a dry subject more fun for her. She is looking forward to her next study session Dan.
