About David

I enjoy helping people of all ages to develop skills in science and math as well as in reading and writing. My training includes a B.A. in Biology and M.Ed. in Natural Science Education from University of Delaware, graduate courses in counseling and communications from Providence Seminary and Regent University, 24 years of classroom teaching in three schools, and extensive tutoring experience in southern Delaware. My students have come from a wide range of racial and cultural backgrounds, including Native American. This variety of exposure has equipped me to find the instructional methods that will work best for you. As the elderly fisherman says in The Old Man and The Sea, "There are many tricks." My hero is my high school geometry teacher who taught me to love math and who played a deceptively effective game of ping-pong. Get in touch--I can't wait to meet you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

A lot of my math tutoring for the past three years has been at the Algebra 1 level, but I can also tutor Algebra 2 and Precalculus and have experience with both.

Algebra 2

I have several years experience teaching this subject in private schools. Depending on your needs, please note that I am also certified in precalculus, which often overlaps Algebra 2.


I don't have military experience. My ASVAB tutoring focuses mostly on math, as outlined in ASVAB AFQT For Dummies, which you can buy from Amazon.com.


My teaching experience in this subject is 15 years. Most recently, my courses have focused on cell and molecular biology. However, I also enjoy teaching botany, zoology and ecology.


I have 12 years experience teaching this subject. I can do both lab and theory and have worked out procedures of my own which are often better than those in the textbook.


My experience in English includes developing and teaching an ESL high school course; serving as editor and staff writer for a newsletter with global distribution; and composing and/or editing books and booklets for publication. My training includes graduate studies in communication. My high school English was capably taught by a published author.


Geometry was one of my favorite courses in high school. I discovered that I had a special affinity for the kind of logical reasoning needed in two-column proofs. For the past school year, I have been tutoring a number of high school students who were struggling with this and other areas of geometry.

Organic Chemistry

I took a year (two semesters) of organic chemistry at University of Delaware in 1968-69, with a grade of B.
I occasionally taught general chemistry courses in three different high schools, 1978-2005, which included some organic chemistry.
Since 2013, I have tutored chemistry at Delaware Technical and Community College. This sometimes involves organic concepts.
Tutoring is usually one-on-one and depends upon the student to indicate areas of need.

Physical Science

I have 12 years experience teaching ninth grade level physics and chemistry, which made up the physical science course in the schools where I worked. I can help you or your student with this subject.


I taught this subject two years at a private school. The topics covered were mostly material that I did in Algebra 2 in my youth: all kinds of basic functions, trigonometry, probability, etc. I have also successfully tutored several precalculus students in the past four years.


My seventeen years of experience as editor of a newsletter with world-wide circulation gives me the background needed for teaching proofreading skills. If I ever get stuck, my Chicago Manual of Style stands ready to help.


I have three years of experience teaching this subject, which was included in the precalculus or Algebra 2 courses in the schools where I taught. I look forward to helping out you or your student succeed with trigonometry.
