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.

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
