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

I can tutor Algebra 1 and have teaching experience with it. I also have several years' experience tutoring college students in all three levels of algebra, including Algebra 1.

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 also have several years' experience tutoring college students in this level of algebra.

Biology

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.

Chemistry

Though my B.A. is in Biology, I have come to prefer chemistry as a subject to tutor or teach. With more than eight years experience, I can do both lab and theory and have worked out procedures of my own which are sometimes better than those in the textbook. I do best with high school level or college 101-102 or 110 levels.

Geometry

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.

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.

Precalculus

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.

Trigonometry

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.

Awesome Tutoring

David or 'Mr. David' as I have called him during his time of tutoring has helped a lot with my core subjects, including; Algebra, and Chemistry. He is a wonderful tutor. He gets right to the point. Whenever I had an issue or problem with something in one of my subjects, he would explain everything to the smallest detail. I strongly recommend those who have trouble in subjects such as previously st
