About Dave

Hi,

This is Dave, and I love teaching. More than that, I love working with any specific circumstance, and dealing with custom situations, or specific areas/needs you wish to focus on. So, feel free to get back to me with any questions or comments describing your situation and goals.

It is altogether appropriate for you to ask for my credentials - I won an Outstanding Teaching Assistant award for teaching mathematics to graduate physics students. I have a Master's in Physics, a Bachelor's in EE, have worked as a statistician for the last 13 years, hold numerous computer certifications, have published several academic papers.

I live in Oakwood, GA with my beautiful wife and 4 dogs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.
