I am a kind, friendly, and patient teacher. I understand that each student has their own unique learning style and pace, and I am able to accommodate varying needs and levels of support. Science can be difficult, but it can also be incredibly fun and rewarding! This is why I try to make my lessons as engaging and interactive as possible while offering encouragement along the way.
I am a Simon Fraser University graduate with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Chemical Physics. I have four years of experience tutoring high school science, and throughout my undergrad enjoyed collaborating with and helping my peers. I also have six years of experience working with children and youth in outdoor education, and overall am passionate about teaching and nurturing the potential of the next generation!

Perfect! Danaan was an excellent tutor for physics! It was an amazing experience working with her and my grade improved significantly.
Perfect! Danaan is very encouraging and thorough. She takes enough time to explain the fundamentals so that more complicated problems can be learned. Our son feels comfortable to ask her questions which is super important.
closeby? Here's a selection of tutoring ads that you can check out.
Superprof can also suggest algebra lessons to help you.
Learning isn't a problem, physics lessons for all!
Taking trigonometry lessons has never been easier: you're going to learn new skills.
