I'm an experienced high school teacher with over 20 years of experience in education. I've tutored all levels of math up through advanced multivariable calculus level (calculus 4). I'm certified and licensed by the state of MA to teach 5th-8th grade math, 8th-12th grade math, and 8th-12th grade physics. I enjoy helping with homework and practice problems and am interested in teaching you the concepts as well as getting all those correct answers which you'd like to see.

This is the physics man!!!
I have been through a LOT of physics tutors and none have been helpful. Yes, they were knowledgeable but just could not teach it. Dave can teach anything with physics!! This is the tutor to see!!

Excellent tutor
Knowledgeable and knows his stuff. Came to this conclusion after vetting a few tutors for a topic our son was having trouble with. Many were stumped by the sample problem sent in advance, however Dave responded with a "yes I can definitely help with these"! Our son had a great first session with Dave and will use him for follow-up sessions.

Inspiring to Kids
Our school district has forced all students to progress at the same pace in math through middle school, regardless of interest or capability. We are lucky to have great teachers who can help students individually, but really their hands are tied, and more advanced students can't progress much beyond the pace of the least interested or most challenged students. A few parents got together to find a tutor to challenge our kids and provide them with a more in-depth math education. Dave has been doing this for a couple of months now. Dave is challenging them, teaching them new concepts, and giving them a love of for math. And the best part - the kids enjoy it!

Smart and engaging teacher
My high school son is looking forward to his next session. David worked with my son at his level and is an expert in his field, mathematics. I recommend working with David.

Dedicated and able tutor.
Dave is tutoring my son (college freshman) for calc1. Dave is detailed and patient. He sends my son material ahead of the lesson and is very knowledgeable. I am hoping to have him continue tutoring my son for calc2 and differential equations. So far so good.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Dave is always able to help with any questions/problems I have. He will take his time to make sure I understand what he did and the steps he took to get to his answer. He always uses extra outside resources that are even better than the information I have for my class.

Exceptional Physics Tutor
We were very pleased with Dave D. as a Physics tutor. Our son was struggling in Honors Physics and we reached out to Dave shortly before his mid-term exam. Dave helped him prepare for the exam and he went from getting Cs and Ds on his tests to getting a B on his mid-term! Dave continued to work with our son throughout the school year. He was especially helpful with circular motion, work and energy, impulse momentum and collision, rotational motion, and circuits. Dave explained the concepts thoroughly and in a way that made sense, something our son's Physics teacher wasn't able to do. Dave was also very responsive and accommodating. He offered to help with homework questions in between sessions, and was willing to reschedule sessions at the last moment when our son's tennis matches, doctor's appointments, etc. got rescheduled. We highly recommend Dave D. as a Physics tutor. Our son wouldn't have made it through Physics without him!

Excellent review of Laplace transfers
Dave was helpful in discussing and explaining differential equations modeling and applications in control system areas like RLC circuits and rotary damping elements of gear systems. Thank you

Thermodynamics and Physics Tutor
Dave was accommodating in explaining the method for finding the Standard Gibbs free energy of formation of a system and explained specific problems involving the 1st Law and 2nd Law of thermodynamics." (My son was preparing for Science Olympiad competition Harvard and State level) My son is in 7th grade, and he explained to him at his level so that he can easily understand. I recommend anyone looking for a Physics tutor, and he is well prepared for the session and very patient to listen to your question.

Great Electromagnetics tutor
Dave provided an excellent explanation for the vectors and directions involved with magnetic force, fields, current and velocity. Much faster than all the other aid I have been given in the past.
