I really enjoy what I do. My greatest reward in teaching is watching my students succeed. And they do. With 30 years of experience teaching secondary mathematics, I continue working with both students and instructors in the classroom. Over the years, I have been most fortunate to work with students who have challenged me to scaffold solutions for difficult concepts. I specialize in step-by-step approaches to problem solving.

I really enjoy what I do. My greatest reward in teaching is watching my students succeed. And they do.

With 30 years of experience teaching secondary mathematics, I continue working with both students and instructors in the classroom. Over the years, I have been most fortunate to work with students who have challenged me to scaffold solutions for difficult concepts. I specialize in step-by-step approaches to problem solving.

I have taught (and continue to teach) several math subjects, including basic algebra, calculus, college algebra, trigonometry, precalculus, advanced algebra, geometry, and statistics. I have also prepared several individuals for the MEGA assessment (formerly the Praxis II), certifying them to teach mathematics in Missouri.

I received a Masters in Mathematics Curriculum and Instruction from UMKC. I have a Career CPC in Mathematics from the State of Missouri for grades 7-12. I also have certification in gifted education from University of Missouri, Columbia.

Following an observation by Dr. R. Stephen Green, Superintendent of KCPS, and Dr. Tony Stansberry, a state supervisor with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, I was awarded 'Star of the Classroom' in 2013 by The Kansas City Royals and The Missouri Lottery.

I am happy to work with you to design an individual program to meet your needs. Contact me, and let's see what we can do.

Personalized Tutoring

Dave personalized my tutoring session by assessing my current knowledge and then developing an organized approach to cover the topics that were the greatest challenge. His teaching method consists of animation, pattern recognition, valid shortcuts, consistent charts, and ways to remember key concepts and processes. I left the tutoring session having learned a great deal more in one hour than ever expected. With a few more sessions, I feel confident that I will be ready for the MEGA test.
