About David

I am available for both Home School and Public School Programs.

My Professional Objective is to guide and oversee the development of student knowledge, so student knowledge and growth can be achieved.

My Professional Experience consists of 20 years experience as a certified Georgia teacher. I have tutored in an afterschool environment, in a Saturday school environment, and tutored in an After School Math Challenge Program. The topics I have taught and tutored in are Math, Social Studies and Science. I have worked for Cobb County (10 years), Douglas County (9 years), and DeKalb County (1year). Completed my Master of Arts and Specialist Degree in Education.

Some accomplishments that I have been successful at are becoming a facilitator/teacher and having my students become very active in the learning process, Challenging my students to use their critical thinking and analysis skills so they can succeed in today’s society, Working with parents in all aspects of their child’s education, Utilizing special, differentiated instruction depending upon the population, Tutored in the After School Math Program, Enrichment Program, and the Spartan Academy which is a Saturday School tutoring program, and have worked in an International Baccalaureate School for 6 years. These are just to name a few of my accomplishments.


My last year in Douglas County I was given 102 students from 6th grade, which only 39 passed the CRCT Test. I taught them in 7th grade and when the CRCT Test was finished 78 students passed. Also when I went to Cobb county and taught Social Studies (Georgia History) my first year I had only 5 not pass the CRCT Test. I have a great knowledge of Math, Earth Science and Social Studies.

I have had to teach Common Core over the past few years and my students have been very successful in obtaining their goals.

I enjoy tutoring students of all ages. It does not matter how old you are, we all need help sometimes and should not feel a shame to get that help. I enjoy the process of working with different students and they should also feel comfortable working with their tutor. Having taught 6th thru 8th grade in math, science and social studies, I feel right at home tutoring.

I have had wide range of knowledge in sports both playing and officiating. I am currently Red Cross Certified to teach Life Guarding Classes/CPR/AED and I also am a swim instructor. The success you feel when a student is successful is amazing.

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.

Common Core

I am a Georgia Certified Teacher in 4th to 8th grade in Math, Science, and Social Studies. I have had to teach Common Core over the past few years and my students have been very successful in obtaining their goals.

Computer Science

While in middle school I taught students to type, word processing skills, and create games with a computer language. I also have about 17 years of computer programming experience. I worked for NCR Corp. and did contract work for a few years. I was one of the original programmers that wrote the code for the bar coding machines that was created and we use in super markets all over the world.

Swimming

I have been certified by Red Cross as an instructor to teach some of their classes. I mainly teach Life Guarding/CPR/AED and Swim Lessons, but I have taught other classes that Red Cross offers for Georgia Defax.

Tennis

I have played tennis for over 40 years. When I went to college I taught tennis in Keene New Hampshire while in college. I have taught tennis on and off over the past 40 plus years. Just 3 years ago I taught young children how to play in an enrichment after school program.
