About Dale

I taught at schools and tutored for over 30 years and I derive immense satisfaction when my students begin to understand new concepts.

I specialize in teaching Math and English. I communicate well with students, and they enjoy my lighthearted approach as they begin to better appreciate some of the core concepts. I focus on helping my students understand basic principles so that they can then build on them. A firm foundation is a basis for future success.

I taught at Elementary and Middle school, and was head of Math for Grade 7, setting course work and examination papers for all the classes. I also taught English and Math at High School level and remain a part-time substitute teacher at the Francis Parker School and San Diego Jewish Academy.

I understand that each student is different. I therefore adjust my approach to work with their relative strengths in solving their difficulties.

I prefer to tutor students at Elementary and Middle School level, helping them build their future academic success based on solid learning skills. There is tremendous satisfaction in seeing a student's grades improve along with an increased willingness to learn and achieve.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and helping your child achieve his or her goal. There is no time like the present.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Knowledgeable and patient

Dale worked with my daughter who is currently in 6th grade. She was extremely patient and thorough. She completed the lesson with my daughter feeling confident and capable. I wish we had found Dale earlier in the school year and will definitely use her in the future.
