Bio

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, I've taken hard to understand subjects and translated them into everyday language.

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, I've taken hard to understand subjects and translated them into everyday language.

The value of a good education starts with a good understanding of the fundamentals.

The goals are to use my unique perspectives through engineering in Math, Physics, and Chemistry and apply them to your particular needs.
While working together, we bring everyday examples into the focus. When possible, I use colorful stories from my years as a student, engineer, and manager, and combine them with what's going on today in the student's life. These have a way of making concepts more concrete in their minds, and its more enjoyable.

Finally, I simply enjoy working with motivated students.
You will be given the skill sets that are necessary to be brought to the next level.
Your study habits will be much more efficient and effective over time, providing the basis for continuous improvements. I want to emphasize that quality time and patience are given to help you fully understand the topics you are focused on. The tools you acquire today will be used for a lifetime.
The bottom line here is that your grades will improve significantly or there is no charge.
Subjects that I offer include;
Math, Geometry, Trigonometry,
Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Precalculus, Calculus
Physics, Chemistry,
ACT/SAT/GED... Math & Science Test Prep

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

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.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

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,

Algebra 2

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,

Calculus

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.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

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
Geometry,

Geometry

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,

Physics

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
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

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

Precalculus

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.

Trigonometry

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.

Highly recommended!

My tenth grade daughter just completed her first session with David in geometry. She has struggled with math in the past and has worked with several math tutors over the last couple of years with very mixed results. She felt very comfortable with David and felt that he offered the patience and guidance she needs. She is excited about working with him during future weekly sessions help her reach her goals.
