About David

Hello! If you need that extra help to catch up in class or someone to explain difficult concepts, or prepare for a standardized test, you have come to the right tutor. I completed both an undergraduate and a graduate degree in Mathematics with summa cum laude honors. I have been tutoring since 2012, and have taught undergraduate courses.
I am a Navy veteran who worked in engineering plants onboard ships. I scored a 98 on my ASVAB and did extremely well throughout my Navy career. I helped several shipmates with Math and aptitude tests. I have completed several college level Math and Physics classes with excellent grades. I can help you too!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Actuarial Science

I am an actuarial analyst who sets reserves for various property and casualty lines of businesses. I passed actuarial exams 1, 2, 3F, 4, VEE Corporate Finance, Online Courses 1 & 2. I am able to explain actuarial concepts based on my education and experience in the field.

ASVAB

Arithmetic reasoning, Math knowledge, and Electrical/Electronics sections can be challenging. I will teach you all the essential concepts to improve your score in these sections.

Calculus

I can explain the following concepts well: Relative extrema, integration by parts, L'Hospital's rule, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, volume, surface area, vector calculus, line integrals, Green's theorem, Divergence theorem, Stokes theorem, and the various applications of calculus.

Geometry

Right, isosceles, scalene triangles; complementary, supplementary, alternate, interior, vertical angles; congruence and similarity. I can also explain theorems and proofs well.

Physics

Projectile motion, Newton's laws, mechanical energy, electrostatics, electrical circuits, magnetism, electromagnetic induction, geometric optics and more. I can teach all of these concepts well.

Precalculus

Precalculus serves as a vital link between algebra and calculus. This course summarizes the essential concepts in Mathematics. Students who wish to pursue Engineering or related fields must have a thorough understanding of Precalculus. I have several hours of tutoring experience in this subject.

R

I use R on a daily basis to improve actuarial analyses and data analytics. I have a sound understanding of R packages like Data.Table, Dplyr, and predictive modeling packages. My master's thesis involved in-depth use of R in analyzing workers compensation data. I can teach you this powerful statistical programming language.

Trigonometry

Basic trigonometric functions; quickly finding the value of trig functions involving 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, and 90 degrees with minimal memorization; trigonometric identities. Simplifying trig expressions using half angle and sum formulas. Solving trig equations between 0 and 360 degrees. Radian-degree conversions; inverse trig functions and graphing.

Most Amazing Tutor We Have Ever Had

David is the best tutor we have ever hired for our son. He has the perfect blend of knowledge, patience, and reliability. I have had a difficult time finding anyone with all of those traits. My son said that he was able to cover and clarify 3 weeks worth of Precalculus in an hour and a half. He has given my son a huge confidence boost in understanding the material for his next exam. As a Mom, I
