About Dave


Bio

I have a passion for mathematics and love helping students understand such a beautiful subject. It is so great to help students understand content they thought was so very difficult. My tutoring experience is extensive spanning over 25 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 18 years. Also, I was an Executive Editor in the Mathematics Department...

I have a passion for mathematics and love helping students understand such a beautiful subject. It is so great to help students understand content they thought was so very difficult. My tutoring experience is extensive spanning over 25 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 18 years. 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 and help you understand concepts conceptually so you won't forget them, then I am the tutor for you. I promise to give you my very best effort at all times.

Great tutor! Very patient and has a good connection with his students.

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

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My daughter has been having some issues in PreCalculus. Dave made it easy for her to understand what she was doing wrong . Already scheduled a second tutoring session.

Mareli, 25 lessons with Dave

Great teacher!

Dave was excellent, patient and really knows how to teach in a way that my daughter understood. My daughter is thrilled with what she learned and confident going into finals!

Todd, 7 lessons with Dave

Great Tutor - recommend to everyone

I have twins in the 11th grade. They are taking calculus and were struggling. I found Dave on the Wzyant site. He has been wonderful. Both my kids have improved a letter grade. He is able to explain the concepts in terms they can best understand. Both my children think he is the best. Their improvement is going to lead to expanded college choices for both of them. I would recommend Dave to everyone.

Ken, 28 lessons with Dave

Very patient and helpful tutor

Mr B helped me understand the AP Calculus material I had been struggling with. I felt more confident and ready after the lesson.

Sam, 2 lessons with Dave

Encouraging, knowledgeable, and inspiring tutor

My son was discouraged with his online geometry course. Dave B. was so encouraging and inspiring to him, helping him find his own way to the answers and reviewing the processes with him, restoring my son's faith in his abilities, and renewing his interest in math. THANK YOU, DAVE!

Kathy, 11 lessons with Dave

Knowledgeable, patient, makes learning fun!

Dave helped our daughter better understand some Geometry concepts. She felt much more confident after he her lesson w/ him. He seemed to have cleared up a lot of confusion in such a short period of time. She is well-prepared for a test she's taking today. We'll most definitely use him again.
