Dan Moore graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts with a Bachelor’s degree in Television Writing and a Master’s degree in English Education. He has worked as either a private tutor, a special education paraprofessional or a permanent substitute in New York City public schools since he graduated in 2012.
Dan Moore has managed and run in-class college essay-writing workshops and tutored/taught a variety of subjects including all levels of English, History, Social Studies and some Sciences. He also specializes in SAT, ISEE, ERB and Stanford-Binet tutoring. In addition to these, Dan helps his mom (a music teacher for the last 30 years in New Jersey) run a weekly class teaching sketch comedy to elementary students during the winter.
Dan’s teaching style is highly personal and highly empathetic; he is adept at tailoring his lessons to the individual learning needs of his students. He has the subject-area expertise to really challenge the highest-level learners but also the patience and teaching experience to maximize sessions with students whose greatest strength lies in other subjects. Having worked in New York City public schools for several years, he has seen all kinds of learners and can use their strengths to work on their weaknesses.
As a permanent substitute teacher at Tompkins Square Middle School in the East Village, Dan is a member of the staff of one of New York City’s premiere public middle schools. He has worked one-on-one with students there, proctored New York State Exams and ensured that his students’ IEPs are carried out in class even when their regular teachers are out.
Outside of teaching, Dan is a Sports Emmy-nominated writer for Bleacher Report’s animated series Game of Zones. He is also a performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater’s flagship show, Harold Night.
