David is helping my son with Calculus. He arrives promptly each time, and uses the hour very efficiently. He is clearly an expert in Calculus. He is able to explain the problems in different ways, which just increases my son's understanding of the topic. Highly recommended.
My son was happy with his first session. Sometimes it just takes someone explaining things in a different way and it seems as if whatever David did, Ben understood things better. We are anxious to continue on this path!
Excellent tutor, patient and knowledgeable.
David also had some really good ideas on how to remember
what you have learned. We tried them out, and it really helps!
David continues to provide my son with excellent instruction surrounding Calculus -- My son has commented how nice it is to have someone that truly understands the material and can provide helpful guidance.
Our son has been having a hard time in Calculus. He was tutored by David and he immediately felt very much at ease. We look forward to more work together this year!
Our daughter had missed a few days of school and fell behind in her math. David got her back on track and she is doing very well
David went right to business, tutoring our daughter from the moment he walked in. He was patient, encouraging, and very communicative with her. I was cooking dinner near by and could hear the session. I am very pleased and impressed! He really made the most our of the hour he was here. The value he brought within that hour was great!
David has been helping me all semester, and I never would have done so well without him. He does such a great job explaining the problems, and makes it so simple to understand, while also being patient. His passion for math actually made Calc 2 fun, and it was an excellent experience. If you need help in math, David is your guy. Thank you so much!
David has been extremely helpful for my son in 9th Grade Algebra and now in 10th Grade Geometry.We have seen his confidence and scores go up. David has been flexible with schedules which is also much appreciated!
David is well versed in the multiple layers of understanding something and moves with ease to those areas and topics that may be causing the student problems.
David earned a thumbs-up from our reluctant 12-year old student after his second lesson. He's enjoying working with David on Algebra and says he makes it interesting.
My son (and whole family) were very thankful to all the support received from David. In all honesty, my son would have never made it thru the course without the teachings of David. He was a blessing! Thanks for everything!
From the first tutoring session with my son, David has arrived promptly and is ready to get to work. He is a good listener and within the first session or two, has been able to help my son understand what he needs to do to improve in his pre-calc class. It's amazing how much David covers with my son in a one-hour tutoring session!
Prior to having tutoring sessions with David, my son wouldn't do his homework if he didn't understand it and, consequently, was not doing well in his pre-calc class.
After his third tutoring session with David, my son has begun doing his homework regularly, and is comfortable in working with David on any concepts that my son doesn't understand or if he needs additional practice. David makes math seems less scary, and my son is gaining confidence in his math abilities.
David 100% knew all of the calculus material when we met. He was very prepared, and brought extra study materials for me to keep, which were also very helpful. Extremely fast response to my 9:00 pm email, and even found time for us to meet that next day!! Stayed on task for the entire duration of the session, and avoided distractions (including a man, who offered to buy him coffee, in return for help on a math question, during our session!) Best math tutor I've ever had by far.
Thumbs up. David makes all our lives easier. Home work gets done and our son understands the concepts with David.
My daughter was not doing well in calculus. I went to Wyzant and looked for a tutor. I was impressed with the reviews for Mr. A. He has been tutoring my daughter for four months and her grade is now a solid B. He is very patient and thorough. My daughter feels more confident and comfortable doing calculus. I'm glad that Mr. A. was able to help my daughter and give her the tools she needed to do well in calculus.
My daughter's geometry grade has improved after just two sessions. Really glad I got David to tutor my daughter. On time, tested her knowledge and she is feeling more confident and it shows in her grades already.
I contacted David at 2pm to see if we could switch the time to 5pm and he called and accommodated the change so our son was able to make the session. Very thankful for the flexibility on short notice.
So very helpful!! So nice of him to accomodate me on such short notice. He explains things so well and helps it make sense. Thank you so much David!!
David is very patient with his student. He communicates very well with both student and parents. He always gets back to you for any requests like changing schedule promptly. He is a great helper.
David is great with my daughter and in just 2 sessions he has given her new confidence in her abilities. Thank you for letting her know she is smart and can do calculus. Coming from mom it does not have the same impact!
When I contacted David my son was struggling with statistics. David helped move his grade up two grades in six tutoring sessions. He continued to help my son with geometry and my son got an "A" on his final exam. David is good at breaking complicated subjects down.
Thanks David for getting my feet wet so to speak. Even though this was the first lesson I feel as though there is a path and I am now on it. I look forward to many more excellent lessons.
David is always on-time, very easy to communicate and get in contact with (email or phone), and on top of his game. He is mature, well-rounded, thoughtful, (very) patient, and highly professional. In short, everything you could ask for in a professional tutor. I can bring questions from all different fields of Mathematics to any of my meetings with him and, without any sort of preparation, he can engage, explain, and work with my material in an extremely efficacious manner. He feels student's pain, and more importantly, has sufficient (vast) experience to anticipate and work around many common issues both with material and in general learning. I highly recommend him, I continue to use him, and I very much look forward to my meetings with him. I know, without a doubt, that every time I meet with him, I will walk away from our meeting feeling better about myself, my capabilities, and my knowledge level.
A patient and knowledgeable teacher. Explains the rules and provides reasoning which is what this student was seeking. Willing to meet in my neighborhood.
David did an Excellent job of breaking down the concept so I could understand every piece of the problem in order to have a clear understanding of the entire problem as a whole! This process is critical in mathematics.
David is very dedicated and a great tutor. He is very knowledgeable teacher and is very patient with the student. He does not just show you what is being done but takes the time to go through it with you step by step. I would highly recommend him and encourage anybody looking to to improve their math skills to go to him for help.
David has helped our son to better understand his Algebra assignments. He is patient and doesn't rush through what they are working on. He makes sure that our son is clear on what they are going over. David was very responsive in communicating with us when we were trying to set up a time that worked in his schedule as well as ours. Tutoring with David has been so helpful for our son and we are so grateful. Thank you David!
Jake really was impressed with his ability to teach. Very patient and kind. We will call him back. Thanks so much.
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.
