My son has struggled in high school algebra/trig the entire year. I tried getting him help from teachers, having him stay after school, etc. He could not get above a D on the tests and I felt like he was drowning in discouragement. I needed to do something FAST because he failed the first semester and now, at the end of the year, it was looking that he was going to fail the second semester. Somehow I found Wyzant and chose David due to his hourly rate and great reviews. I'm so appreciative that he keeps his rate reasonable! Otherwise, I would have chosen someone else. David came over right away and after one lesson, my son got his first B on a test! We are down to the wire and the teacher said he needed a C or better on the next test and a C or better on the final to pass. Well, he got an A on the next test after one more session and he is taking the final today after meeting with David last night. He went to school today feeling confident. My son describes David like this- "He is easy to talk to and really helps things make sense." I appreciate David saving us from another summer school course and his flexibility to come last minute was a lifesaver. I'm hesitant to post this review because I don't want David to get so popular that I can't book him!!
Dave has a laid back but quite effective teaching style. He was always professional, on time, and very flexible when we needed to make changes on short notice because of family emergencies. My 7th grade daughter ended up with an A in algebra. We won't hesitate to bring Dave back for geometry.
My son has been tutored by David over the past year. He's been in high school geometry. David has been patient and thorough with my son on the concepts and math problems. David helped him also prepare for the end of course exam. I really appreciated David's style and knowledge. He was patient and very good with helping my son understand geometry, and helped him get through math this year and prepare him for 2nd year Algebra. I would highly recommend David - very good tutor.
David is an excellent teacher. He is patient and soft spoken and my daughter is completely comfortable with him. He guides her towards understanding in the way that only an experienced educator can do. She looks forward to working with him and is more confident in her abilities since she has been working with him.
David's tutoring with our son's Algebra has helped considerably. His most recent Algebra test was an A-. My son says that Dave is able to get it across to him in a way that is more succinct and to the point than I, his mom, ever was able to. That seems to make it much less frustrating to my son, and he's more willing to persevere until he gets it. David is able to offer up multiple explanations when our son doesn't get it the 1st time, and able to explain the math with the big picture in mind -- how it all relates, connects, and ultimately makes sense when one has the 'big picture.' My son also liked the 'real world' applications of the math that Dave was able to give him when my son asked "Why & Where would I use this stuff?!" David is also able to be flexible with his time... something we really needed and appreciate.
My daughter is so impressed after every session about how much she learns that she was never told. She really likes the way David explains things and she is feeling more confident about math with every lesson!
I feel blessed finding my son's tutor David through WyzAnt since December 2012. He is patient, polite, knowledgeable, and cheerful. My son feels very comfortable being taught by him.
Thank you David for taking time to help my son with understanding his Algebra. He has really enjoyed your help.
David met with my daughter for only an hour. Within that hour, she was able to understand the material and finish her homework for the week. Not only did David help her in such a short period of time, but he was able to come help with only hours notice. Thank you David!
We were lucky enough to have David answer our plea for help at the end of the school year to help our son improve his grades. David came in and helped our son understand his math in a short period of time in a way that I wish his teachers would have taken the time to do during the rest of the school year. Our son felt good about what he learned and was able to finish the year on a high note.
David worked with our son for several sessions over a period of about five weeks when he was struggling with Algebra 2. During that short time his test scores improved by about 15 percentage points. Our son enjoyed working with him and pronounced him "a really good teacher."
David is patient, timely, and an exceptional tutor. His assistance has been monumental in our family and has eased our daughter's math related stress significantly. Thank you David we are forever indebted.
Outstanding! David is very patient and explains the information in a way that is easy to understand. He has helped me get through several math classes and I would use him again in the future.
David K. was a wonderful fit with my 12yo son. He boosted his confidence by showing him how much he really did understand. It was delightful to work with David and to see my son's perspective change toward math is such a blessing.
David was wonderful for our ADD son who was struggling to get through 11th grade physics. Our son was very timid about physics, but David was patient and thorough. Our son went from an F to a C-, which was a miracle for us! Thank you David!
David K. continues to do an excellent job with my daughter. They have made significant progress in a very short time. His patience and techniques as well as his communication style are very positive. Strongly recommend David for anyone getting ready for the math portions of the SAT or ACT. My daughter's SAT math score increased by 80 points thanks to David K. Since the average increase is 50, I am very impressed by a measurable score.
