I want to start off by saying that I spoke with many tutors that claimed to help but when it came down to it they were always unavailable or I had to drive 30 miles to meet with them. I was really starting to freak out because I wasn't getting the help I needed, thats when I met David. David was willing to come to my home and that in itself was so helpful!. He was impeccably punctual, Always flexible, and easy to contact with awesome response time. He is amazingly smart and not at all intimidating. I always felt comfortable and at ease. He took whatever we may have been working on and simplified it so that I not only understood the information but made it interesting. I highly recommend David and his services and would absolutely use him again if needed. I truly believe you get what you pay for and in this case David was worth every penny. Thank you David!!!
Dave goes above and beyond in his availability and in reviewing what the student needs assistance on. Beyond that, my son enjoys working with him!
Dave was very patient in his tutoring in both Java and C++ languages and really saved me in both classes. I highly recommend Dave to any student in need of programming language help!
My 17 year old son needed tutoring with Trigonometry. We are so happy we found David through WyzAnt. From the very first phone call when David spoke to both my son and I, it was clear that he was very knowledgeable about the subject and the textbook being used. In addition, he made my son feel comfortable with tutoring, confident that he could improve, and motivated to learn. The five lessons my son has had so far have been great. David is very good at explaining, and he then has my son work through applicable math problems while he is present and can help him. As a result, my son feels way more confident in his math skills and is improving. Our only regret is that we didn't find and utilize David earlier in the semester. Now that we are aware of David and his tutoring skills, it is nice to know that we can possibly use him for future classes and subjects if needed.
My son was reluctant to go to first tutoring session however he was very happy after the hour saying he felt David taught in a way he could understand. He is looking forward to his next session with David. Thank you David. 9/16 My son has been through 3 lessons and very much likes David and his method of teaching. He feels David knows the material expertly and is helping increase his confidence in math. I am thrilled. Thanks David.
David helped my grand daughter with her pre-calculus and he is great. Very good skills and knowledge of subject. David went out of his way to be accommodating to her and her mothers schedules. My grand daughter says he really knows how to work with her and how to teach. Very responsive and easy to reach at any time.
My son was nearing the end of a very difficult technical class and was having difficulty completing the last few assignments. It was the middle of summer and our normal tutor was not around, so I tried WyzAnt and found David. He called back within an hour of the initial request and we were on the schedule for the next morning. He met with my son a few times and really helped him understand the assignments. My son completed his work. David was prompt and thorough in teaching my son. We were more than excited to find such a wonderful tutor - We are planning on continuing with David's services.
David was incredibly helpful in assisting me with a programming course, and was also quite flexible in regards to finding time to tutor. He knew what exactly needed to be done, and was very thorough in his explanations of various concepts. He was engaging and enthusiastic and went the extra mile.
In addition to being very knowledgeable about the subject content (chemistry and geometry), David did a great job communicating with our son in a manner that was most effective for him personally and ensured he was involved in the process from an accountability standpoint. David also did a great job of keeping us updated with detailed summaries of each session that included concerns, areas of need and praise. This information was extremely valuable to understanding the progress being made and if/when/how we could assist as necessary to achieve a successful outcome.
As parents we know that tutoring is more than instruction, it is also about chemistry. David did something that not even his parents could do; he found a way to effectively communicate with our son which provided the necessary motivation to learn. Our son's attitude improved beyond expectations and we know that it was because of David. Thanks David, you have been a tremendous help to our family.
The review title says it all. On at least 3 notable occasions, David went above and beyond the call of duty, strategizing how I can best maximize my score on the ASVAB. Those who excel in mathematics are usually perceived as stuffy, even callous individuals. David pretty much destroyed that stereotype. His enthusiasm and engaging personality made me feel comfortable and eager to learn. Thanks David!
I am a recent grad from ASU and was asking for help in C# from David, not for a passing grade, but to keep my new job. I have a family to support, and I am so happy I have David to tutor me. I have no doubt that he is giving me a much better chance of securing my programming job into the future. From our first meeting to our last, David has always shown the willingness to adjust and adapt to my needs. Whether it's meeting times, days, or different ways of meeting. In my opinion, David goes far above the line when it comes to satisfying my needs. He always answers any questions I have through email. It's not something he keeps tabs on, he just likes to help. He actually encourages me to email him any questions I may have before our next meeting. I purchased a book and was following it. Before I knew it, he had purchased the same book just so he could help me. He did not ask me to pay for it. I am very impressed with David and would strongly recommend him to anyone who needs a tutor.
