About David

Personally I love being able to teach people. To be able to spread knowledge and allowing a person to get past their road blocks to education. In college and high school I would usually tutor for free, helping friends and those just generally struggling. Now however, I need a little extra income and felt like there would be no better way to do that than doing what I already love doing.

Even though I am not a secular teacher, my teaching experience comes from being a full time volunteer minister helping many students come to a greater understanding of the bible. I have also been an official tutor in math and science for high school and to certain families in need. Pertaining to education, I have completed all maths through calculus 2 and differential equations, many sciences relevantly General Chemistry 1 and 2, and collegiate training in all Microsoft programs. I have enough credits and level of classes for an AS degree which I will apply for in the up coming semester.

I am very confident in Elementary mathematics, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Calculus AB, and the introductory College Chemistry classes. I can also tutor classes that are similar including differential equations, however it will take more study on my part. My goal for each lesson is for the student to have a better understanding of the subject matter and the tools necessary to tackle similar problems with ease. I focus on why things are done, not just on how they are done. My approach will vary per student, because everyone is different; I do not believe there to be one approach for all students.

I have a 36 hour cancellation policy, where half payment will have to be billed if the cancellation happens within the allotted time. However, if there is a time during the same week that works for both parties to meet then the appointment will be considered "moved", even within the 36 hour deadline. I will refer back to this policy if need be, but I am generally flexible and reasonable.


Math has always been my strong suit. That being said, many can make that claim and not know how to teach the subject with any clarity. I have been helping family members, friends, work mates and complete strangers in the subject for many years. I have said before That I have completed all math through Calculus 2 and Differential Equations, being able to skip all the way through Calculus 1 in college because of a 4 on my AP Calculus AB exam in high school. Almost every time the student thanks me and say that I was much better than their former tutor or professor. When looking for someone to tutor the lower levels of math a PhD in mathematics is not needed or even advised. You need someone like me who understands how people think and will work with them.

Chemistry has not always been by strong suit. However, working closely with tutors myself, I have been able to come to a good understanding of General Chemistry. Chemistry for lack of a better description is very weird, but I know how to make sense of the weirdness and explain it in ways that others can understand. I have recently received high A's in General Chemistry 1 and 2 and under the personal and enthusiastic recommendation of my professor I am applying to become a chemistry tutor for my college.

A small personal note that distinguishes me from many other tutors is the fact that information has never necessarily come easy to me. I have always had to take alternate routes to learning information for my mind to really understand. Through this I have been able to grasp a full understanding of many subject allowing myself to be flexible in my approach to someone's learning, instead of being tied down to a single rigid direction. I am very patient and understand that all subjects are hard when first learning them.

Every one needs to learn, but every one does not necessarily want to or know how to. However, I will work with either of those groups and reignite their spark of knowledge. Please contact and talk to me and see if I will be a good fit for you.

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.

Algebra 2

I am very good with math and actually really enjoy Algebra. I have taken all the way through Differential equations and Algebra is the cornerstone of all math. I have probably the most experience with tutoring Algebra out of any of my subjects.

Ballet

I have been Dancing for four years starting in my junior year of High School. One of my passions is dance and I would love to spread that passion to someone else. I have taken many dance classes at high school, multiple studios and college, which all incorporated ballet into their classes. Specifically in ballet, however, I have participated in 2 collegiate classes and assisted in one other. I am upbeat and never boring when it comes to dance, and guaranteed to make it fun.

Bible Studies

I have been an ordained minister since I was 12 years old. Before and after being baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses, most of my life has been dedicated to learning what spiritual truths lie in the bible. I have been conducting free home bible studies on an official basis since I was 12, and have been continuing ever since for about nine years. Two years ago I dedicated myself to being a full time volunteer minister dedicating at least 70 hours a month to teaching others about the bible. I am a forever growing student myself and have dedicated my life to spreading that knowledge to others.

Geometry

I have taken math all the way through calculus 2 and differential equations. I also have a good amount of experience tutoring in this subject. Personally, geometry is a favorite of mine, because it is just like algebra but with pictures. When teaching, I do not focus too much on memorization of formulas, but on actually being able to see what is happening. That way no matter what there is on the test, you will be able to figure it out.

Swimming

I love everything when it comes to the water. In high school I swam for two years and was able to swim at state in my senior year. I went from being the absolute worst member on the team to one of the best. I was never very powerful when it came to swimming, so I had to focus on technique. That technique is what I will teach, which will be guaranteed to make anyone faster. I was also a life guard for 3 years, so I know everything about water safety. I was also offered the opportunity to become a swim instructor for little kids, and received some training, but did not have the time. I will be able to teach swim to what ever level the person is at.
