"Hey there. My name is Daniel, a published writer with six books and a tenured professor. I have had over twenty years of experience in college classrooms and working with students one on one. I’ve found that the most important thing I can do is to build a student's confidence in what they’re doing and saying. How do we do that? By focusing on what a student is interested in and passionate about, and working from there.

I’ve primarily worked with students in college-level composition and writing classes. I’ve also worked with high school students on college admissions essays, Poetry Out Loud performances, and original oratory for debate. I am experienced in teaching the entire writing process, from brainstorming, note-taking, drafting, and revision to the finer points of grammar, argument, and punctuation. My sessions cover employing formal and informal tones in both speaking and writing.

My tutoring philosophy, no matter the task, is that we learn by doing. As a first-generation college student, I relate to the challenges that face those who may not know how to navigate academic lingo, reading assignments, and writing for a college and college-bound audiences. I also have experience with English language learners, and am familiar with the challenges they face. Although it may be a cliché to encourage students to “find their own voice,” I do think there’s a worth to working with a student’s experience, as opposed to working from templates and boilerplate lesson plans. I encourage my students to write in the smartest, most rigorous version of their own voice, and customize my teaching for each student.

Feel free to contact me and we can discuss your needs and set up a plan together." less...
