Physics 1 – Fall 2016
“Dan was a teaching assistant for my group in the P-cubed (PHY 183) course . He always made sure to encourage everyone to participate and make sure their voice was heard. He was always enthusiastic while also making sure that we did our part to the maximum so he would provide the help when needed. His approach was always welcoming and professional so it made it enjoyable for us to work with him.” -Ashraf Mohamed (Fall 2016)
“Dan was my teaching assistant for physics 183 at Michigan State University. Dan is a rare breed of teacher, not only is he extremely knowledgeable but he is also very motivating. Everyday my group and I would look forward to coming to class just because we knew we had Dan as our teaching assistant. Not many teachers that I have had could even come close to the energy Dan brought to class every day. I always felt completely comfortable asking Dan a question because he was almost excited to answer it. Every time I asked Dan a question I genuinely felt like I completely understood the material afterwards. Dan could make any problem seem easy with how he explained it. He consistently made sure that everyone in the group was completely on the same page. With Dan’s energy, knowledge and professionalism, I have no doubt in my mind that Dan would make a fantastic teacher.” -Craig DeClerk (Fall 2016)
“Dan tutored me for a semester in PHY 232. He was knowledgeable and came to every session prepared. Dan simplified challenging homework by breaking it down into easy to understand steps. He was very patient and would work with me on a topic until I completely understood it. Dan genuinely cared about my success and with his help, I not only earned a high grade, but was also able to come away from the course with a confident understanding of the material.” -Shayna Kotzian (Fall 2015)
“Daniel is a professional. He came highly recommended from more than one source at Saginaw Valley State University. He tutored my children in International Baccalaureate (I.B.) Physics and Chemistry. As a result of his work their understanding of the subject matter improved significantly. He has a way of breaking down complex subject matter into simple easy to comprehend parts. He is able to explain things in a way that make sense. Throughout the course of the past 18 months he has proven to be very reliable. He traveled to our home through a brutal winter and always arrived on time.” -John Schnepf (Fall 2013-Spring 2014)
