“**Mr. D is the best!**”

I spent 8 years teaching high school math, from Algebra to Calculus, before leaving education and entering the business

Background Check:
Passed

In-person lessons

We found him when I was pretty much failing precalculus, and was very behind in the topics that I needed to know. he is incredibly patient and non-intimidating, which helps if math is not your strong suit. By going to his math tutoring, my grades and math confidence has increased exponentially.

Steven helped my daughter with Algebra II. He was friendly and very patient helping my 16 year old daughter (she is very shy). My daughter really felt like the hour of tutoring helped a lot! We know we will be calling him again! Thank you!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I like to teach Calculus using technology of today, but with a historical perspective as well. Many of the topics should be covered the old-school way with an emphasis on rigor and practice, without relying on the calculator to do all the work. Only then can one truly appreciate the Eureka moment that many of the calculus techniques allow you to experience. I have a BS in math from Duke, taught for 8 years both in Virginia and Gwinnett, and now work in a profession in which I use math every day.

I taught pre-calculus for 8 years in the public schools, both in Virginia and in Gwinnett County. I enjoy teaching it because it is the bridge to calculus, and you get to glimpse at some of the topics that you will tackle in calculus. It is very important to understand the concepts early in the course--you do not want to fall behind.

I taught trigonometry for 8 years in the public schools, both in Virginia and in Gwinnett County. I enjoy teaching it because it is the beginning of the bridge from algebra and geometry to calculus, combining elements of all topics. It is very important to understand the concepts early in the course--you do not want to fall behind. I believe trig should be taught as it was years ago, with an emphasis on rigor and the concepts, and not RELYING on the calculator. Technology should be used as a tool and as a time-saver, but it does not replace the necessity to learn how to do trigonometry--those who take shortcuts will be missing out when they get to calculus.
