My name is David U., but many just know me as Dave the Math Tutor. I've been a professional math tutor for over 30 years, and I can help you make sense of anything mathematical, from elementary arithmetic to pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, statistics, probability, number theory, and more, including test prep for tests like the ACT, SAT, CBEST, CSET, GMAT, and GRE. With me you can learn to master the basics, then bump your grade up a notch by learning the shortcuts to take, the pitfalls to avoid, and the special tricks that can make your work quicker, easier, and less prone to error.
I have a B.A. in Math and a wealth of experience working with students of all ages and levels. My students often tell me they appreciate my broad knowledge, my enthusiasm and love of math, my clear and straightforward explanations of mathematical concepts, and my patience and good humor. I'm available days, evenings, and weekends, and I'd love to help you master math.
My rates are reasonable but not low; you can easily find cheaper math tutors. Finding a better tutor, though, would not be so easy! So when quality is more of an issue than price, get in touch with me and find out just how helpful a top-notch tutor can be. I look forward to working with you.

Dave is the most professional, patient and thorough tutor, going the extra mile to complete a day's lesson or to ensure the concept is understood. We have been using Dave for almost a year, first for Geometry and now for Algebra II. I cannot begin to express what a gem he has been.Thami, 78 lessons with David
Dave is so passionate at teaching Math. I am truly grateful to have found such a wonderful tutor that knows how to teach it. We went over some basic Math problems, and he gave me a study guide on improving my math skills. I look forward in learning more from him.Michael, 1 lesson with David
Methodical and step by step approach to math problems
David was very thorough and with his step by step approach helped me realize where I was making my mistakes. He was patient, reassuring, and knowledgeable.Natalie, 2 lessons with David
Easy to understand
Explained complicated concepts well and simplified the process in a way I was able to understand. This lesson was a little over an hour and he was able to explain what DE was in a few minutes. The short lesson helped me regain some confidence in the class and I look forward to future lessons. Gave me a handout with step by step color coordinated instructions that I was able to use in other problems.Diego, 34 lessons with David
Great Lesson 8/28
He is a really smart and effective tutor. I see myself passing my math class with a lot more ease than I did before our lesson. I liked his choice of having us meet in a cafe and I like his sense of humor.Grace, 16 lessons with David
Makes Worlds of Difference
David is a tutor that is fantastic at cutting through all of the mathspeak that most college professors use and shows how to look at a problem simply and effectively. I used Dave for college-level differential equations and he helped me get an A in a class I had previously failed. A fantastic tutor and could not recommend him more.Jodi, 5 lessons with David
Friendly and Knowledgeable Tutor
My son said David was great. Very patient and explained things very well. He is flexible in either meeting somewhere or coming to our house, which is definitely a plus. Definitely will continue to use.Robert, 2 lessons with David
Encouraging and Patient
Even though I've only been one session, David has already started to revive the confidence that I once had when it came to math. Math used to be my strong suit but in the last couple years it became a real anxiety for me, as I know it is for many. David was so encouraging and kind, and I felt very safe in our session. I am looking forward to continue working with him. I would definitely recommend him to someone feeling anxious and unable when it comes to math!Nicole, 7 lessons with David
Great Calculus Tutor
David did a great job in explaining concepts and problems that I was struggling on before I had our first lesson. He is very patient, and is really good at breaking things down so that you end up owning it. I'm excited to keep working with him to achieve that A that I'm shooting for this semester!Sylvia, 5 lessons with David
Personable, kind, patient, flexible, and knowledgeable!
David helped me prepare for some homework and an exam on arithmetic and geometric sequences, summation notation, and binomial theorem. I felt much more confident in these topics after our session! Highly recommend!Jennifer, 1 lesson with David
