I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Michigan Technological University (class of 1983). I am a Quality Control Engineer/CNC Lathe Programmer-Operator/CNC Mill Operator for a local Grand Rapids, Michigan tool & die shop where I have worked for over 31 years. I have helped tutor several apprentices over the years with their trigonometry and geometry classes (2 fields that are used a lot in this industry). I use trig and geometry on a daily basis and can relate these subjects to everyday life. Math has always been "fun" for me and I have a thorough enough understanding of these subjects that I can teach others in ways that are easy to understand and, hopefully, make it fun for them as well.

Very, Very Helpful!
Our son really enjoyed working with David. David was patient, helpful and committed to helping our son. We will continue to use him as we move into a new school year! We are grateful to have found a tutor that our son connected with!Garrett, 24 lessons with David
Dave is a great tutor! He's always on time and very dependable. He has a way of making problems easier to understand and complete. He's very patient, laid back, and kind, with a good sense of humor. I plan on using him in the future with my children if they struggle with math. Dave also is very reasonably priced, and will meet you right after he gets off work. I can't say enough good things about him! I highly recommend him to anyone!Anne, 3 lessons with David
Great person - worked around our schedule
David jumped right in when we put out an S.O.S. for our daughter's Algebra II emergency call. He was able to work with our schedule and helped our daughter succeed with a 106% on her final!Janice, 7 lessons with David
Very clear and straightforward guidance. Highly recommended!
Dave helped our son get through algebra 2 with his clear approach and thorough explanations. My son appreciated his patient, friendly style of teaching. Dave was always there and ready to go when we requested. We will definitely use him for future math tutoring.Todd, 8 lessons with David

Working out very well.
My daughter has met with David twice so far. She reports that she's learned a lot and really likes that he is so patient. At parent teacher conferences, her teacher reported that he has seen a change in her and she is much more happy and confident. Grade so far is up one full letter grade from last semester. Looking forward to the rest of the semester and hopefully final exam time with much less stress. To update: The trimester just ended. What a difference from last trimester before she met David. Last trimester, final time was a very stressful time. She was tired, anxious, defeated, and struggled greatly to pull off a minimally acceptable grade. This trimester, she studied diligently, slept well, felt very confident, and did very well on the final. As a whole, her grade in the class was up one full letter grade from the trimester before. She and her parents are very pleased. Thank you very much David!Daniel, 17 lessons with David
Dave is a great tutor! Every session my son learned 1 or 2 Algebra tricks/hints to push his grade up 2 grades. Thanks for all your help, Dave. It was invaluable.Judy, 6 lessons with David
David has been helping my daughter with Geometry and she has gone from a C average in her math classes to an A in Geometry. We are reserving David for next year for Algebra II!! Great guy!Angela, 41 lessons with David
Dave has been very helpful for my son, who has been struggling with high school math. Dave is always on time, and goes the extra mile to support my son's needs. He seems to connect well with the topic at hand, and gives encouragement where needed. Dave continues to go the extra mile for my son. He stays late or makes extra time available when there are upcoming tests. He has also found great ways to go over necessary information on a weekly bases, to assist with studying for the final exam. Thanks Dave, You are awesome!Sarah, 38 lessons with David
David was very patient and did a wonderful job with our son. He provided formulas and everything our son needed to succeed. We will be using him again next school year.William, 4 lessons with David
