About David


Bio

Hello,
Although I am not formally certified, I have taught in public schools in Western Michigan, including 5th and 6th-grade elementary, 7th-grade math, 8th-grade health, and 8th-grade computer science. My preference is to work with children in late elementary although I would feel comfortable tutoring kids from K-12, depending on the subject matter. I have taught all subjects in late elementary plus am strong in elementary math through algebra, science, history, social studies,...

Hello,
Although I am not formally certified, I have taught in public schools in Western Michigan, including 5th and 6th-grade elementary, 7th-grade math, 8th-grade health, and 8th-grade computer science. My preference is to work with children in late elementary although I would feel comfortable tutoring kids from K-12, depending on the subject matter. I have taught all subjects in late elementary plus am strong in elementary math through algebra, science, history, social studies, psychology and reading.
I can establish rapport with students of all ages. I have some testimonials from previous students I can show you. I would generally be available in the afternoon and evening, along with weekends, as circumstances may require. I recently tutored a young woman taking a psychology class at Grand Rapids Community College and in a matter of weeks her grade went from D to B.
I have completed all the requirements for a teaching certificate in Special Education and Elementary at Grand Valley State University, lacking only Teacher Assisting and Student Teaching.

I have completed all of the course work for teacher certification in Special Education, including extensive coursework in psychology. I have taught ADHD students in my classes, and I have ADD myself so I understand the difficulties involved.
