Experience teaching autistic students 


Hi, my name is Daniel.

Obtaining a driver's licence can be the pathway to greater opportunities and I want to assist you on that journey.

My background is in teaching and education, which I find extremely satisfying and rewarding. Driver education has grown into a real passion for me, particularly working with youth and the local community. 

My experience in education has taught me that every lesson must be tailored to the individual needs and goals of the driver. Therefore, your current driving experience will be acknowledged and each lesson will take you to the next level. By using verbal cues and visual aids, the experience of learning to drive becomes a fun and positive experience. I’ve found that students with different learning needs greatly benefit from this.  

Students frequently tell me that I’m patient and make them feel at ease. I always try to make my students feel comfortable and find it rewarding when I see the look on their faces when they feel safe and in control of the vehicle. 

I look forward to being a positive part of your driving experience so you become a safe and confident driver.

Daniel is such a good teacher. He was very patient with me when I was trying to learn all the basic until I was able to get my driver's license. I really appreciate him a lot. It's kinda sad that he's relocating because I wanted my wife and my sister to learn from him as well. But all is well. We pray for success for everything that he will do. Thanks a lot, Dan!
