Hi! My name is Dave. While I am relatively new to tutoring, I have been a high school teacher since 1993. I have an undergraduate degree in computer science and mathematics, and a master's degree in counseling. Working with young people is what I am trained to do, and it is a profession that I have enjoyed for two decades.
If there's one incontrovertible fact that I've learned over the years, it's that having an aptitude for certain types of tasks does not necessarily mean having the ability to teach those same skills to others. Yes, there are a number of people who are good at computer programming and solving math problems, but not all of them will be able to teach those skills to you (or your son/daughter) in an effective, clear manner.
As a teacher, I work extensively with larger groups, but my classes are usually small enough that I am able to spend considerable time working one-on-one with my students, helping them to better understand the concepts that they are being taught. I am dedicated to my profession and very results-oriented. I am skilled in many computer programming languages, as well as a variety of levels of mathematics.
Personally, I enjoy downhill skiing, tennis, watching movies, and exploring new places. I have a great sense of humor (if I may say so myself) and a wonderful rapport with the many students that I see every day.
If you have any specific requests or questions for me, please feel free to ask.
