About David


Bio

Two years ago I retired from teaching math and social studies at LA Unified School District. I taught 10 years at Los Angeles High School and 7 years at another area High School. I also taught 10 years in the Antelope Valley in middle and high schools. I enjoy helping students one on one. This past year I helped a failing student in Algebra 1B raise her grade to a C for the semester. I have the ability to encourage students to do their best.

Two years ago I retired from teaching math and social studies at LA Unified School District. I taught 10 years at Los Angeles High School and 7 years at another area High School. I also taught 10 years in the Antelope Valley in middle and high schools. I enjoy helping students one on one. This past year I helped a failing student in Algebra 1B raise her grade to a C for the semester. I have the ability to encourage students to do their best.
I have over 25 years experience in teaching high school math and 2 years teaching social studies. I have CA Single Subject Credential in Math and Social Studies. Having taught algebra and geometry for so many years, I have an in depth knowledge of the subjects and know the areas where students often struggle.

I realize that for 80% of the population math is their least favorite subject. I enjoy math but know that many intelligent people struggle with the subject. Most math classrooms have 30 or more students. Even the best teachers can not provide the one on one help many students need. With a little encouragement, most people can be successful in math.
Math helps persons to be better problem solvers and rational thinkers, skills everyone needs in life. I have a proven record of helping students learn high school math.

I enjoy learning and talking about history. I have 21 year old son in the US Army. He and I spent an hour on the phone recently discussing the American Civil War. The Civil War is a hobby of mine. I shared with with what I thought were the most important dates, people, battles and political events of the time period. He took and passed the test. He got three college units. We did the same thing for the Vietnam War. To me, history is fun not work. History is fascinating because people are fascinating. People make history.
