About this tutor

I am a retired secondary math teacher, and have taught all courses from prealgebra to calculus and differential equations.

I am concerned that some students cannot access private tutoring at the market rate of $50 per hour, so I prefer that students pay what they feel they can afford.

What can I say?  I love math!

And I enjoy seeing students gain confidence not only in their math skills, but in themselves

    I have nothing but great things to say about Mr. Reynolds. I'm doing college level calculusI and I was having a really hard time before I met him. He was always available and took his time through the lessons to make sure I understood everything I was doing. His passion was to make sure I walked out of the session with confidence knowing I understood the work. Words cannot describe what a great guy he is and all the knowledge he has for math. Next semester I'm taking calculus II and I am definitely using him again. Thank you Mr. Reynolds for all the help you gave and all the encouraging words. You believed in me when I doubted myself.

    Dan has an obvious love for teaching and seeing children excel. His tutoring is therefore about success of the student and not about commercial gain. I greatly appreciate that.

FAQs


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

We begin by the student explaining where they feel they need to focus and why they find math challlenging.  We focus not just on problem solving but on being able to fluently explain what the topic is about and the tools it provides.


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

Certified secondary teacher in 4 states.  Degree in Mathematics from UC Berkeley.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Market rate is $50 per hour, which I think is outrageous.  How can a student afford that? I prefer my students pay what they feel they can afford.


How did you get started teaching?

My son went from a successful middle school student to a failing high school student.  The "system's" response to a child with the need for support was appalling.  I became a teacher to ensure he received what he needed, and found that I loved it.


What types of students have you worked with?

All sorts from IB students to less traditionally successful students.


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

Find one who listens more than they talk.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Why do you find math challenging?

How much effort are you willing to put in to fill in "holes" in your math experiences/skills?

What constitutes success for you?
