Daniel completed his B.A. at Oberlin College, where he was a double major in Biology and Geology, graduating with honors in Geology. He went on to earn his M.S. in Geology at the University of California, Riverside. While there, his research focused on paleoecology, but he also relished his time as a teaching assistant for undergraduate courses. Since then, Daniel has followed a career in education, teaching college classes in Geology and tutoring high school math, science, English, and test prep for over a decade.
Although Daniel has experience teaching classes and groups of various sizes, he thrives on and is energized by working with students one on one, as it allows him to build rapport, evaluate understanding in the moment, and adapt to the specific needs of each student as an individual. His passion for tutoring comes from sharing his knowledge of and enthusiasm for the wide variety of subjects he teaches, something he feels keeps him endlessly engaged and mentally sharp in a way that no other job could. Outside of work, Daniel enjoys a variety of hobbies including photographing fungi and wading birds, drawing and painting, digital photo editing, playing guitar, and building models. He shares his life with his wife, two children, and four variously affectionate cats.
