Furthermore I have also spent 10 years teaching Physics for the Fame/Unite/Merit/UD Summer program. My philosophy of education is that all students can learn given the right guidance. My teaching style vary depending upon the student that I am teaching. Each lesson is geared toward the learning styles of my student and aimed at increasing his/her ability to learn on their own in a variety of environments.

Study Skills

Being ready for school is often a challenge, especially when a student goes to the next level. Being organized and managing time can often be the hard for students facing today's school environment. Not being able to find the right material or the time that you need to complete an assignment leads to greater frustration. Guiding students to become more focused on their work helps them a great deal, but often this is just a start. Students may not know how to study for tests because they never had to do it before or they don't understand how to get the most out of what they read for class. One of the techniques that I utilize is called SQ3R. It helps students study as well as retain information that they read or learn about in class. Learning is all about the connections that we make in our brain and how we make them. The better that we can connect the information the easier it will be to get better grades. Your child's learning style is important to his/her growth in the educational environment. Knowing his/her strengths and weaknesses will aid him/her in developing strategies to cope with and to overcome his/her learning difficulties. Learning can be fun and easy as long as you have the right tools

SAT Reading,

SAT Reading

The SAT reading can be a challenge for many students. For the most part the reading passages are intimidating because the student doesn't know what the topics will be. Being interested in what you read is a great deal more important than most people think, but using proven strategies even the most disinterested reader can do well. The other challenge that goes beyond even the reading section, is vocabulary. Vocabulary isn't taught as much as it used to be and students are at a disadvantage because of this. I teach the vocabulary and vocabulary skills needed to aid my students throughout the test. With practice and preparation all students can do well.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I am a Delaware and Pennsylvania certified Math teacher who has taught in high school and in college for 15 years. I have been a tutor for students in Algebra 1 for the last 7 years. I understand the difficulties that can be associated with mastering the subject.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 can get complicated for a multitude of reasons, most of which are easily solved by a few simple practices. I have taught an tutored students in Algebra for over 10 years and am a certified math teacher. I explain it all simply so that students understand.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus can be a difficult topic at first. Like most math classes it has a few elementary parts that once grasped lend incite to the rest of the topic. Knowing what a derivative means and how an integral is used are just two of the basic elements. Understanding Calculus lead Newton into greater understanding of Physics and which has lead us to many other places as well.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Chemistry is all about the Periodic Table. Every atom has its own properties and interactions that make it unique. To understand and do well in Chemistry takes a feeling of comfort with the table and exactly what those elements can do. Teaching Chemistry has always been a wonderful experience for me and I want to share the wonders of Chemistry with you.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is a foundation class in which so many skills are gained. These skills such as logic, reasoning and spacial geometry are useful not only in future math classes, but in many different careers. Logic and reasoning are used in science, computer programming, medicine, and so many others; while spacial reasoning is used in interior design, architecture and landscaping. Grasping Geometry can be a very important part of a student's future.
Physics,

Physics

Physics is the best and most challenging course that a high school student can take. It not only involves learning about a science which is integrated into every part of our daily lives, whether we are aware of it or not, but it also involves utilizing math and English skills taught over many years because not only do Physicists compute quantities, they explain them as well. It is the only class in high school that really merges separate skills to tackle a single task. It makes you think.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is the basis for so much. Every child need to have a good foundation in it. It not only set the stage for math success in Algebra, Geometry and Precalculus, but it also is helpful with success on the SAT and ACT. The basic skills learned in Prealgebra start the pathway that leads students through high school and into college.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus is that last step in the Algebraic sequence of math taken at the high school level. It takes all the skills learned in Algebra 1&2 to a much deeper level, while at the same time advances several concepts begun in Geometry. The goal of Precalculus is to prepare students for Calculus by exposing them to a variety of graphs and functions which will be used or seen in higher level math. It is a great deal of fun, especially if you like puzzles.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

SAT math is all about the logic, not just the problems. Mostly the problems on the SAT are designed to trick you into thinking the wrong way about it and conclude the wrong answer. Strategies can be used to help even the best math student do better and work faster to get more of the answers correct. Practice is the key and I have a great deal to offer.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

David was able to simplify concepts of Pre Calculus that I was not able to understand before. He works with you to really find out what your weaknesses and your strengths are.

Keith, 7 lessons with David

An amazing Tutor

David is a very knowledgeable tutor with much patience. We are very fortunate to have found this assistance! David is very organized and scheduling appointments is very efficient.

Barbara, 41 lessons with David

Confidence Builder

My son was really feeling frustrated with his Calculus course. After just one session, he had more confidence and a much more positive approach to his studies. He described Mr. David as very knowledgeable, but down to earth...really able to explain things well.

Tracie, 11 lessons with David

Great Tutor

Great lessons overall. Mr. K. taught me to de-stress, which in turn, has led me to success. He cares about the people he tutors, and it is easy to talk to him.

Mo, 76 lessons with David

Very responsive, flexible and knowledgable

David was excellent. He made the subject matter easy to understand and the lesson enjoyable. He found ways to make the topics covered clear. Looking forward to continuing to work with David.

Aissam, 10 lessons with David

Relieved

David put a worried parent at ease. My son was totally confused in calculus, and smiled a sigh of relief when we talked about his session. I can't wait until he returns.

Harolyn, 3 lessons with David

Excellent tutor!

David basically got my daughter through Algebra and Precalculus. Without him I don't think she would have gotten the grades she did which in turn helped her immensely on the SATs, thus helping her get into great colleges! Thanks David!

Jenni, 53 lessons with David

Great tutor

After one lesson only, David seems to be very knowledgeable for my son's organizațional and study skills needs. I would use David as a tutor with confidence. Thank you, David.

Cristina, 2 lessons with David

Great tutor

David was very knowledgeable about the school work my son needed help in and is a great tutor. I am very impressed. Hopefully this continues for all the tutoring classes that my son needs.

Noureen, 51 lessons with David
