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.

Outstanding tutor targeting math, physics and test taking strategies!

David has helped my son immeasurably prepare for and take pre-calculus and physics tests — he is a pleasure to work with and has already made a difference in my son’s grade! It is wonderful to switch back and forth between subjects based on my son’s needs. I wish we had started working with him earlier.

Renee, 6 lessons with David

Luis Colon

During my session with David I learned about how I could pass through the reading process from the SAT quickly and with certainty of having a good grade. I liked how the tutor expresses himself and his teaching structure.

Luis, 2 lessons with David

Knowledgeable and helpful

David has taken the time to keep me informed of the progress for my son. My son really enjoys working him and he says that he is learning a lot. Thank you David for such a great teacher!

Adriana, 7 lessons with David

First day impression was excellent!

Explanations were clear. My daughter just needed a quick review for the test and was worried about it but David saved the day! She asked me to book him for more days and add SAT review on top of academic subjects. She is quite picky with tutors and I have her select some but she chose to continue with David.

Jasmin, 3 lessons with David

Knowledgable, patient, excellent teacher!

My daughter has worked with David twice, and she absolutely loves his explanations and methods. He is professional and extremely knowledgable. We will continue to work with him the future!

Dalbir , 21 lessons with David

Saved my grade

David saved my physics grade. I showed my teacher the work we were doing and she said it's above what we're learning and the test should be easy. Thanks David

Kim, 6 lessons with David

Knowledgeable and helpful

Reinforced the missed steps for fractions and helped rebuild the foundation for easier understanding. Will continue to reach out. Hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Adrian, 1 lesson with David

Excellent Tutor! Highly recommended!

David was extremely intelligent and explain exactly the nature of the mathematical problems and formulas. His insight is incredible. Definitely will be seeking his assistance in the future.

Tim, 2 lessons with David

knowledgeable and patient teacher

David is a great teacher. He is very patient when he teaches my kid. During the lesson, he pointed out the important trick but also reminds my kid not to forget to show steps when he answered math questions. We are forwarding to having more lessons with him in the future!

Glenn , 2 lessons with David

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Provided very clear explanations while helping with physics topics and homework. Very friendly, easy to work with. My high school junior found it very easy to talk to David and had a clear understanding of the topics after the session.
