Hi, my name is Dave.
I have tutored hundreds of students. Although many came to me afraid of math, most of them left with a well-earned sense of confidence and mastery. You will too. I promise that you will learn what you want to know.
My style is personable, engaging, and easygoing. I have extensive knowledge of statistics, GRE and SAT test-taking, and problem-solving. I zero in on precisely what's giving you trouble, and will break each problem into pieces you can understand and...

The most awesome tutor in the world.
I was connected to Dave after going through several mental breakdowns trying to figure out how to prepare myself to retake the GRE. First time around I worked hard on my own (but with the math skills of your average 4th grader), I struggled and in the end my self doubt always got the best of me, often ending my studies more confused than when I started. Ultimately I performed poorly and was desperate for help. Meeting with Dave was a game changer. He doesn't just teach you how to tackle the GRE math, he teaches you how to approach the test and believe in your ability to conquer it. He gives you insight on how the test works that you don't find anywhere else, and he never makes you feel too slow or too behind. In fact, he always makes you feel like you are brilliant and capable (a feeling I have never experienced when it comes to math). His teaching was clear and each session left me with new skills that have made answering GRE math problems way less horrifying than before. I can't say enough how wonderful he is, and learning from him has helped me grow not just in my math skills but as a person. If you're like me and math is not only something you struggle with but are scared of, Dave is exactly what you need.

Patient, knowledgeable...did I mention patient!? :D
Super knowledgeable. Had him help me with my research for a master's thesis. He was very patient with me and all my questions and even me asking a few after the lesson had ended through chat. Would work with him in the future :)

Knowledgeable and easy to understand tutor!
Dave is very knowledgeable about any type of statistics problem. He knows how to teach formulas that are relevant to your specific class and specific teacher. It was really helpful to bring him practice problems as a review for each of my stats exams. I had tutoring sessions with Dave at least six times and would go again if I had another math class!

Makes Statistics Easier to Understand
Dave was an excellent tutor who broke down complex hypothesis testing In a clear and easy to understand way. I had a thesis paper that needed my testing and methodology section revised as I missed the spot. After one session with Dave he walked me through what the professor was truly looking for on a paper of this caliber and took me step by step on how to find my data, and test my hypothesis. What I appreciate the most is he showed me how to do the steps and then had me work to replicate the math and checked that I truly understood the concept. He is very knowledgeable and has a very personable personality! Would defiantly use his services again.

Stats help
Very helpful lesson. Dave clarified concepts and helped me understand the topics I wasn’t feeling very confident about. Will book again for help with my finals preparation. .

It's all about the problem solving.
Dave teaches students the most crucial ingredient of doing well in the Quantitative Reasoning section of the GRE--problem-solving and seeing the secret hidden in the question.

Informative and Enlightening Statistics Lesson
Dave is a wonderful tutor. He helped me to understand concepts of statistics that were confusing me and introduced me to new concepts I had not learned about in a manner that was clear and informative. He showed me how I can use statistics to understand data and to identify significant findings in my research. He showed me that statistics is much more than math and is a powerful tool for real-world endeavors. I would be very happy to work with Dave again in the future.

Great insight, More than just solving questions
The problem-solving approach illustrated with SAT questions. His approach is unique in that he understands the root cause of the problem. My daughter felt very good to realize how Maths is not something that comes naturally to most of us. By focussing on rereading her questions multiple times, not blaming herself for not getting it, she can actually enjoy it.
