I have a passion for mathematics and love helping students understand such a great subject! It is very rewarding to help students understand content they thought was difficult and beyond their capabilities. My tutoring experience is extensive spanning over 30 years and includes subjects ranging from Middle School Mathematics through Calculus along with standardized test preparation. In addition, I have been a High School Mathematics teacher for 19 years along with 5 years as an Adjunct Professor at the college level. Also, I was an Executive Editor in the Mathematics Department of a major educational publishing company for 11 years where I conceived, wrote, and edited mathematics textbooks and ancillary materials.
My teaching awards include being named Teacher of the Year and being featured as an Outstanding Educator by Orlando Lifestyle Magazine. I have a deep love of mathematics and thoroughly enjoy tutoring all topics. It is a wonderful feeling when I am able to help someone understand something they previously regarded as complex or even unattainable. I do this by first discovering what it is my student does not understand so together we can build a lasting conceptual understanding. Outside of teaching I enjoy spending time with my family, biking, reading, and am an avid sports fan.
Mathematics courses I have taught include General Mathematics, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry, Integrated Mathematics, AP Calculus, IB Mathematics SL, and IB Mathematics HL. I am known to be able to help students understand difficult concepts in a fun and relaxing manner. Mathematics did not come easy for me so I know what it is like to be frustrated and not understand concepts.
If you want someone who is friendly, approachable, and is able to thoroughly explain concepts so you have a deep and lasting conceptual understanding, then I am the tutor for you. I promise to give you my very best effort at all times!
Dave has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 5 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Dave was extremely helpful and very easy-going & funny! He made sure to thoroughly explain everything I had a question on! He even went over our session time to make sure everything was understood even though it was 9PM, I really appreciated that:) If you’re looking for a tutor who will answer any & every question, is easy to talk to, and very funny I would definitely recommend Dave! I was able to pass my math final with his help!Marisol, 1 lesson with Dave

Algebra 1 - systems of equations - complicated but Dave took his time with my son and really helped him grasp the concept of the work. It's clear he has a lot of experience working with younger students and was very encouraging.Marty, 1 lesson with Dave

Dave was a wonderful tutor for my son. He has a thorough knowledge of Calculus and was able to show my son, step by step, how to solve problems and what he was actually solving for. This helped generate a visual picture which really helped the learning process.Denise, 5 lessons with Dave
