About David

I am a friendly person. I like math and chemistry and enjoy helping students understand these subjects better. I have three years experience tutoring these subjects at the college level. I began tutoring after I retired from the software industry. I also taught freshman chemistry for two years, when I was in graduate school at Indiana University. My most recent tutoring experience was in 2014 working in the Math Center at Lincoln Land Community College.

It has been brought to my attention that being able to reduce a problem to simpler sub-problems is a good approach to solving the problem at hand. Also, in both chemistry and math, being able to work problems is key in understanding the subject matter in these fields. It is my job to help you do this. The thing I like about tutoring the most, is seeing a student gain an understanding of how to work a problem that they were previously unable to do. (Seeing that little light of understanding come on!)

I am an outstanding math tutor because I like the subject matter and want to help you overcome any obstacles you have in understanding the subject. As an undergraduate, I minored in math.

I am an outstanding chemistry tutor because I like chemistry and want to help give you a better understanding of this fascinating area of science.

Contact me and I will help you improve your understanding of these areas and as a result, get better grades in math and chemistry.
