Dan Heymann

I’ve been tutoring for five years and tutoring math full-time in a middle school in the Bronx for the past two years. I grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, and graduated from the University of Cape Town with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. My life-long fascination with Math has nourished my two main passions: aerospace and songwriting! After moving to New York and studying at NYU for my certificate in computer programming, I worked for eleven years as a data analyst at a major corporation in Manhattan, before embarking on what has been my most gratifying pursuit so far: tutoring Math. There are no words I enjoy hearing more than, “Wow, that’s actually so simple!” when I’ve helped a student understand an idea that they found intimidating. When not teaching, I can be found at my keyboard with my headphones on, searching for the next big song idea!

“Space travel: You go behind the house and throw a ball over; I’ll try to hit it with my ball. That’s the beauty of MATH!”
