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
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
David is remarkably knowledgeable and patient. He provided same day tutoring for my 14 year old with pre-calculus. My son took to David's methods immediately and was actually smiling doing his math, which has not been the case for sometime. We look forward to future sessions!Sis, 4 lessons with David

Awesome, Smart, and patient
David really took the time to understand my questions and problems. He taught me in a way that I could understand and tried not to complicate things. I highly recommend him.Kyle, 1 lesson with David
It is worth every penny and more.
I am Miguel's Father. After the first meeting I noticed a big confidence change in Miguel, Miguel had taken calculus 1 before and got a D and he repeated the class this semester in the first test he got a C, after that is when he started getting tutored by David, next test he got a B and the 3rd test he got an A, Miguel met with David the day before finals to study so we're still waiting for final results. I met David that day and saw how he tutors, I like how calm and patient he is and how he knows his stuff he was not trying to figure out how to do the problems. Miguel will take calculus 2 in the Spring and he says he will see David whenever he needs help.Miguel, 28 lessons with David
He has been able to check my son's foundational knowledge in algebra 1 and 2. His ability to observe, question, and challenge my son's knowledge/skill is apparent and invaluable in giving my son instructions that improve his capabilities. We will definitely continue to hire Dave in the future.Valerie, 7 lessons with David
