I have started working on my Master's degree in English. I currently teach GED classes through Rock Valley College. I truly enjoy this as I get to teach a variety of subjects.

Hello,

I have a passion for education. I have a Bachelor of Art's degree in Foreign Languages. I have a Minor in Math/Computer Science and the equivalent of a Minor in English. I have started working on my Master's degree in English.

I currently teach GED classes through Rock Valley College. I truly enjoy this as I get to teach a variety of subjects. My favorite subject is actually math. I know that math is usually the most difficult subject for students. However, I am equally happy to tutor in all of the general high school subjects. I can also help prepare them for the ACT or the SAT.

I have been teaching GED with Rock Valley College for six years now. I have been tutoring for eight years.
I intend to dedicate the rest of my working career in helping students develop a passion for learning. Knowledge is power.

Please contact me for an interview to see if I am a good fit for you or your child.

I provide discounts if we have sessions in my office near Alpine and Harrison or if you live in Belvidere. I also provide group discounts.

Sincerely,
David

Algebra II tutoring

Noah is improving his algebra skills immensely since going to see David. He feels more confident not only about the skills he is learning, but about asking for assistance in the areas he still needs to work through. This is a huge jump forward!

Angela, 10 lessons with David

Very strong ACT Prep

David has been working with my son for about 5 weeks. My son did just fine on the ACT but really wanted a higher score. David really zero'ed in on my son's strong/week skills and worked directly on those. It was not any more money than a perp course and he had 1:1 attention!!! I would highly recommend David as a tutor, he is very strong in math by the way

Karen, 8 lessons with David

Helpful

I took a practice English and math test to prepare for our session. During our session David helped me understand what I got wrong on the tests then we compared my progress to previous tests. This was helpful in understanding act concepts.

Rick, 9 lessons with David

Patient and Helpful

David helped me with Calc I for a college summer course. Over the summer, he not only helped me understand the subject for future coursework, but gave me helpful hints for the subject. He helped me go from a failing grade to a B for my final. He was very patient with me when I was having difficulty trying to learn an extremely difficult subject.

Colin, 7 lessons with David

He worked great with helping my daughter

He was very helpful in getting my daughter to understand and be able to work out her physics. Her confidence had a tremendous boost. She enjoys doing her homework now.

Lyn , 2 lessons with David

Very professional and helpful

David is helping my daughter with Algebra 2. He is patient and has found a way to help her understand Algebra 2. I'm very thankful.

Tim, 9 lessons with David

More knowledge for me

David taught me how to use my punctuationschedule appropriately. He taught me the meaning if fan boys and when they should be used. He helped me understand how to capture the readers attention. He showed me that more detail is better. He was the best tutor that I've had at wyznet thus far. He's great!
