Testimonial:

David is a wonderful tutor. Mathematics has always been my weakest skill and I was signed up to take the GRE, and had a month to study. David is extremely knowledgeable and very articulate. I was easily and quickly able to understand the concepts that I had previously struggled to comprehend. David was very patient with both my lack of knowledge and comprehension in the field, which allowed me to quickly pick up on the mathematical concepts that I needed to know for the test. David offered many methods for both learning and recalling the material, which was particularly helpful for the GRE. Working with him was a pleasure and each meeting was both informative and enjoyable. I was surprisingly pleased with my score, and would not have been able to succeed without David’s help.

GRE

GRE

I have helped a student with intensive tutoring on the math ("Quantitative") part of her GRE - she was very pleased that her score improved and she was admitted to her choice of graduate school. I have also tutored the Verbal part of the exam. I am quite familiar with the exam, and personally scored 800 on both parts when I took the GRE in 2011.

Algebra 1

I've worked with 5 Algebra 1 students over the past twelve months, all of whom have made significant improvements. I teach mathematics at Husson University, and teach online classes Southern New Hampshire University and Bunker Hill Community College. I have an MS in mathematics from Tufts University, and hold a Massachusetts Secondary teaching certification in mathematics. I'm a member of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I've worked with 6 Algebra 2 students over the past twelve months, all of whom have made significant improvements. Algebra 2 can be challenging for some students, as a solid foundation of Algebra 1 and, to a lesser extent, Geometry is important. I can solidify these foundations while helping students with the newer material.

Science

ACT Science

ACT Science

I have tutored ACT Science, and every student I worked with found the experience helpful. ACT Science is a bit different from some of the other tests, and requires putting things together from different places, and making comparisons between different experiments that some students find challenging. I can work with students to help break some of the questions down into simpler pieces, show how some questions can be answered looking only at one experiment, and how to combine the experiments mentally to better answer the comparison questions.

Great Calculus BC tutor

He helped my daughter with integration and derivatives and now she is able to work independently on them. He was very patient and explained it well. She looks forward to working with him again soon.

Great Teacher

David G was really patient with me. I learned a lot. I will book a lesson with him again. He helped me with Pre Calculus

Excellent Tutor, Flexible, Understanding, Listens

I had to take a discrete math class for admittance into a computer science master's degree program. I had ordered the book and was concerned about the subject area. Being an adult student, I was also out of school for about 15 years. I looked for a tutor and found David (after going through two others), his way of explaining things just made sense and you knew that he knew discrete math fully. He could take the very abstract concepts and make them concrete. He was always available for questions, and never gave me the answer but helped me discover it on my own. I spent two hours a week with David all semester and then when I had an exam spent about an additional 6 hours. He would meet me anytime day or night even at 10 PM one night. I ended up with an A- in the class. Discrete Math is a very tough subject even if you have an engineering/technical background and this grade wouldn't have been possible without David. Highly recommend David, and when I have a very theoretical class, I will go to him immediately. The quality of the instruction was second to none. Excellent Tutor.

Patient and Well Versed

David is a great tutor. When I first started my statistics course I had a tremendous amount of fear about taking this class. David was able to alleviate my fears and make statistics more understandable. He is well versed on the subject matter and was very patient with me. It's not everyday that you find a tutor of this caliber. I would recommend David to any student who is struggling with statistics. He is the best way to go if you are looking for immediate and understandable results.

David G is Great!

I recommend David! When I initially inquired for tutoring support, David was responsive and professional. I told him I had about 1.5 months to prepare for the GRE, and we booked our first session for the next day. While we primarily focused on the math portion of the exam, David provided recommendations on quickly learning the verbal. Overall, it was great to have someone to bounce questions off of and discuss steps to assist with exam preparation. I recommend David for tutoring support!

Jonathan, 11 lessons with David

Explains clearly

My daughter understood her algebra after working with David when she never quite understood with her teacher and a different tutor. He is clear and patient.

Lisa, 19 lessons with David

Patient with great understanding of subject matter.

My son is thrilled to have found a tutor with such in-depth knowledge of his subject and who can convey that knowledge in an understandable format.

Clare, 23 lessons with David

Great Tutor!!

He was extremely helpful to me for my calculus II course. He is very patient and extremely knowledgeable in the subject. I can't thank him enough.

Hayley, 14 lessons with David

Patient, compassionate, great teacher

My son worked with David over a four week period to improve his score in Algebra Accuplacer test for college placement. After taking and not passing the test twice, the result of working with David was not just a "pass" but an 89. My son also has a learning disability which makes test taking all the more challenging. David was very patient and encouraging, and always tried to identify opportunities to tell him he was doing a good job. My son went into his test prepared and confident. I highly recommend David and we would not hesitate to work with him in the future.
