Hello,

I have a passion for education. I have a Bachelor of Art's degree in Foreign Languages. I have a Minor in Math/Computer Science and the equivalent of a Minor in English. I have started working on my Master's degree in English.

I currently teach GED classes through Rock Valley College. I truly enjoy this as I get to teach a variety of subjects. My favorite subject is actually math. I know that math is usually the most difficult subject for students. However, I am equally happy to tutor in all of the general high school subjects. I can also help prepare them for the ACT or the SAT.

I have been teaching GED with Rock Valley College for six years now. I have been tutoring for the last four years. I intend to dedicate the rest of my working career in helping students develop a passion for learning. Knowledge is power.

Please contact me for an interview to see if I am a good fit for you or your child.

I provide discounts if we have sessions in my office near Alpine and Harrison or if you live in Belvidere. I also provide group discounts.

Sincerely,
David

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Calculus

I have renewed my interest in math after reviewing trigonometry and pre-calculus. I have now reviewed Calculus and I am ready to help students learn it.

ESL/ESOL

I help students learn how to speak, read, and write English. The main focus is to expand their vocabulary and to understand the conecepts of English grammar. I am able to help students with this as I learned a second language myself as an adult in college.
