About this tutor

I have been a math and science tutor or instructor for about two decades. Subject include SAT/ACT prep, physics, biology, chemistry, earth science, photography, health, STEM and more. Elementary school through grad school. The majority of my students have a diagnosed learning disability. 

I have over a decade of laboratory and clinical research experience, was a TA at UCLA and have completed the majority of medical school. B.S in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology at UCLA. Most of my students are in high school or college. CV available upon request.

The nCoV 2019 virus and the current pandemic: I follow all CDC, state and local recommendations and mandates regarding the transmission reduction of SARS-CoV-2 and expect that all of my students do the same. Pandemic or not, education is extremely important. I am eager to meet new students. I am fully prepared to meet online or in person, safely and adherent to government restrictions and CDC/NIH recomendations. 

Since November of 2020, I have been a Scientist at a major biotech company in San Jose, CA. From August to November of 2020, I workerd for a major biotech company in Indianapolis, Indiana in a BSL2+ diagnostic lab performing a SARS-CoV-2 PCR test for COVID-19. Prior to spending some time in Indiana, I lived in the Los Angeles area.

One of my students just qualified for the National Merit Scholarship due to her score on the PSAT!!! I extremely proud of her and am honored to have had the opportunity to help her prepare for the exam. 

Getting to know my students and helping them earn a grade that was once believed to be out of reach. Many of my students call me in distress. They are getting a poor grade and feel hopeless. I am almost always able to turn a F to an A. I consider the confidence gained by each student,  due to hard work, understanding of the coursework and improved study skills part of my payment. I am so proud of my students.

    Daniel really helped me with honors chemistry. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great tutor!

  • Mark Davis

    Daniel is committed to having his students learn and succeed. He spent countless hours engaging an otherwise unengageable Chemistry student and breaking down the subject matter. Undoubtedly, my daughter was on her way to flunking chemistry when Daniel came aboard. His instruction and patience made all the difference. Can’t believe she got an A. I would recommend Daniel wholeheartedly.

  • Anu Garg

    Daniel has been an excellent teacher for my daughter for AP Biology He knows the subject thoroughly and my daughter was prepared for the final test in a very short while I recommend him for all high school students He is going to teach physics to my daughter in Senior year Very dedicated and motivates the student towards the subject

  • Elizabeth Brownlow

    Daniel really cares about his students and truly wants them to succeed. He is patient and good at explaining concepts. He also makes himself available to contact for help whenever which is greatly beneficial.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My goal is to develop a relationship of mutual trust with each student, which enables me to better identify, and then overcome,  learning barriers. I teach students to teach themselves and show them how to become professional students.

I ask that students lets me know if I need to find a better explanation or I have not properly addressed his or her needs.

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

About a decade of laboratory experience.

Completion of most of medical school. 

One of my test prep students is a National Merit Scholar

Math and science tutor for two decades.

TA for a biology laboratory course and an organic chemistry course at UCLA

B.S. in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology from UCLA

How did you get started teaching?

I began tutoring as a high school student

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students in public, charter and private schools in the Los Angeles area and in the Conejo Valley. Many of my students have diagnosed and undiagnosed learning disabilities, including ADHD and ASD. I have also met with homeschool students 5 days/week and was their primary teacher for math and science.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for someone that knows the relevant subjects and has teaching experience. Tutors and teachers with experience know how to quickly identify the specific needs of each student and have practiced a variety of ways to teach each concept. 

As a scientist in an academic laboratory, a teaching assistant at UCLA and a tutor, I have experience teaching concepts in a manner that is best fit for each individual student and can explain how math, physics, biology, chemistry and other sciences are used in practice.
