About Dave


Bio

I am currently a full-time GED teacher and I have a very high completion rate (usually a student gets their GED in 2-3 months). I work with minors and adults who have dropped out at eighth or ninth grade. I give them tips for taking tests and show them tricks to learn the material faster. I am positive and I create a learning environment that encourages students to learn. I have taken students from not being able to read all the way through their GED and into college classes.

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Dave was a patient tutor with my son. He knew exactly how to describe to me what his struggles were and gave me some insight as to how to help him. He worked with him to find his reading level to assess if he was actually behind or was struggling in other ways

Kara, 3 lessons with Dave

Great motivator

Dave is great with our daughter and has been a great motivator. She has had her best overall test scores since meeting with Dave last week.

Bonnie, 2 lessons with Dave

Very Friendly and Knowledgeable!

Dave is a very smart guy! He explained what narration was and how it can help my son with reading comprehension. He also had flash cards to help with basic math facts. This was our first time meeting and he gave my son the flash cards! At the moment I'm working with my son by doing narration and using flash cards. So far it seems to be working! Thank you Dave for your wise words of encouragement!
