Hi, I'm Dale. I am a very patient, understanding tutor who is always on time and dependable. I have a lot of experience in helping people excel, from college students through elementary students. I have taught at the college level for six years, and I also am certified as a substitute teacher for elementary ages.
For over 30 years I've had a solid reputation for honesty and integrity in my ability to help people grow and mature and learn.
I've been married for 35 years to the same wife and we have two terrific married adult children.
It would be my privilege to help you succeed!
