“**Couldn't do it without him!**”

I am a retired Chemical Engineer, living in Denham Springs, Louisiana.

Early on in my career, I learned how to work with all types of people.

Beginning as a process engineer, and up through the ranks of Process Leader, Area Superintendent, Plant Manager, ISO 9000 Quality Manager, and Projects Manager.

Through all of these years,

If you’re interested in online lessons, message David to get started.

I am a 48 year old that decided to give college a try. I have always struggled to do math. I work, have 3 kids and have serious aniety when math is involved. David has patiently struggled to explain, re-explain and explain again my math. He's worked around my changing schedule and dealt with my anxiety issues. I've worked with him for 2 semesters and struggled dearly. He's my biggest cheerleader. Need a tutor? If he can handle me and my issues, I can't imagine a better tutor!!

David is a fantastic tutor and his lessons are always well prepared. Everything covered is catered to my daughter’s need and clearly explained. Couldn't ask for a better tutor. He makes Algebra so much fun for my daughter.

I have seen David multiple times and each session showed even better improvements per session! David is helping me with my ACT science and my scores have gone from a 21 to 23 to a 25! He's super helpful and patient!

Physics 2002 is not an easy subject to tackle, but with David's help it did not seem as bad. He really takes the time to see how you learn best and make sure you actually understand the material. I could not have gotten through physics without his help.

I give David's tutoring the highest 5 star rating. We really appreciate everything he does. David excercises incredible patience regardless of the assignment or how long it takes. He is really on his game.

Mr. David is doing a great job with my son Alexii. He is ahead of his class.

Mr. David you rock!!!

Thanks!!!

David helped me a lot with my college algebra lessons and I look forward to reviewing more math lessons before my final exam in a few weeks. With his help, I know I'll do well!

College Physics is not laughing matter... the material is hard to wrap your head around at times. It helps when your child has someone like David that relates to the subject matter and relates to your child.

Thank you for using your knowledge, time and patience to help our son.

David is very knowledgeable and organized. He helped me work through problems and view examples of how to do different problems

I am preparing for the TABE test and searched out a tutor who could help me dust off my math skills from high school. David is a truly knowledgeable tutor, easy to communicate with and learn from. Going in I was a little reluctant for David to see what I didn't know/was rusty on (it's been several years since I've taken a math class) but he really made me feel comfortable. I still have a few weeks until my test but I know with my continued sessions with David I will have no issue passing.

My daughter really enjoys her tutoring sessions and has already begun to feel more confident in her math skills.

Mr. David helped my son improve his grade in physics with only a couple of sessions. My son enjoyed going, and said he is very helpful and easy to understand. I am very grateful for what Mr. David has done in only a short amount of time.

David is very flexible with scheduling and teaching methods. He was always trying to find a better way to help me understand and learn math. I didn't think it was possible, but now I'm getting A's in Calculus!

At our first meeting, we determined my level of expertise with Excel. David provided homework -which is extremely helpful. I will be meeting with him again to increase my confidence with Excel formulas.

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.

American College Testing known as “ACT” is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions in the United States.

ACT MATH is the 2nd section of the ACT. and is the 60-minute, 60-question math test with 14 covering pre-algebra, 10 elementary algebra, 9 intermediate algebra, 14 plane geometry, 9 coordinate geometry, and 4 elementary trigonometry.

American College Testing known as “ACT” is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions in the United States. The science reasoning test, (ACT SCIENCE), is a 35-minute, 40-question test. There are seven passages each followed by five to seven questions. There are three Data Representation passages with 5 questions following each passage, 3 Research Summary passage with six questions each, and one Conflicting Viewpoints passage with 7 questions.

Elementary algebra is a fundamental and relatively basic form of algebra taught to students who are presumed to have little or no formal knowledge of mathematics beyond arithmetic. It is typically taught in secondary school under the term algebra. The major difference between algebra and arithmetic is the inclusion of variables. While in arithmetic only numbers and their arithmetical operations (such as +, -, ×, ÷) occur, in algebra, one also uses variables such as x and y, or a and b to replace numbers.

Algebra 2 is a high school mathematics class often required for graduation. Algebra 2 expands upon the principles students learned in Algebra 1, including rules of operations and relations.

The benefits of Algebra 2 is to help students who want jobs that involve chemistry, medicine and physics. It is also helpful in business and economics because algebra teaches how one variable affects another.

Calculus is the study of change,in the same way that geometry is the study of shape and algebra is the study of operations and their application to solving equations.

Calculus has widespread applications in science, economics, and engineering and can solve many problems for which algebra alone is insufficient.

As a chemical engineer, I began work in R&D, which included intense Laboratory work.

This was the springboard to more responsibilities in the Chemical Industry, and achieving Patents.

Positions included, Senior Process Leader, Area Engineer, Area Superintendent, Projects Manager, Plant Manager...

Processes included

1) Diazinon

2) Ethyl/Methyl Cyanoacetate

3) Hypochlorite

4) Alumina

5) others

then Pilot Plant, and finally actual Project

The most basic topics in elementary mathematics are arithmetic and geometry.

A mastery of elementary mathematics is necessary for many professions, including carpentry, plumbing, and automobile repair, as well as being a prerequisite for all advanced study in mathematics, science, engineering, medicine, business, architecture, and many other fields.

The GED Mathematics Test is divided into two equally weighted parts. Each part consists of 25 questions and allows the candidate 45 minutes of test-taking time.

The test:

Measures problem-solving, analytical, and reasoning skills.

Determines whether a candidate can interpret information from both word problems and graphic formats, including charts, tables, graphs, and diagrams.

Presents problems in real-life contexts.

No matter how math may have challenged you in the past, any student can pass the GED math test with a little preparation

Geometry is all about shapes and their properties.

Plane Geometry is about flat shapes like lines, circles and triangles ... shapes that can be drawn on a piece of paper.

Solid Geometry is about three dimensional objects like cubes, prisms and pyramids.

Physics is the branch of science concerned with the properties of matter and energy and the relationships between them. It is based on mathematics and traditionally includes mechanics, optics, electricity and magnetism, acoustics, and heat. Modern physics, based on quantum theory, includes atomic, nuclear, particle, and solid-state studies. It can also embrace applied fields such as geophysics and meteorology

As a Chemical Engineer with over 25 years' experience, I have taught math to chemical operators and various levels of personnel. From this I have taught many students how to use prealgebra to calculus with great success.

The objective of Prealgebra is to prepare the student for the study of algebra.

Prealgebra includes several broad subjects:

Review of natural number arithmetic

New types of numbers such as integers, fractions, decimals and negative numbers

Factorization of natural numbers

Properties of operations (associativity, distributivity and so on)

Simple (integer) roots and powers

Rules of evaluation of expressions, such as operator precedence and use of parentheses

Basics of equations, including rules for invariant manipulation of equations

Variables and exponentiation

Prealgebra often includes some basic subjects from geometry, mostly the kinds that further understanding of algebra and show how it is used, such as area, volume, and perimeter.

PRECALCULUS is really just a way to get you acquainted with the main ideas of calculus:

functions

rates of change

accumulation

Moreover, precalculus attempts to show you that each of these ideas can serve as a mathematical model of a tremendous number of phenomena in our everyday experience.

Most of precalculus is just looking at examples, listening for these key words and phrases as they are used to describe different situations, and slowly coming to an understanding of how a few simple notions can help us to appreciate the unity among nature's variety.

As a Chemical Engineer with over 25 years' experience, I have used trigonometry substantially. I have taught many students how to use trigonometry with great success. Currently I am seeing kids move from failing grades to B's and A's. They learn the basics and then how to apply these basics in the real world. It's exciting to see their confidence grow steadily as we practice these techniques.
