## A-W-E-S-O-M-E Tutor!

Family, 2 lessons with DaveDave was great. He was so energetic and engaging. My kiddo usually doesn't like Math but she was asking when Dave will get to come back for more tutoring! Definitely a must with Dave! I think he is unparalleled!

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

With 36 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 teach several math subjects, including basic...

Mathematics

Masters

## Detailed Explanations

Dave is very good at explaining what you are doing in math and why. He used examples related to real life and even demonstrated with gestures to help my son understand the lesson. He is very patient and encouraging.

## Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My son needed help with Algebra. After one tutor session with Dave he said he felt relieved, it all made more sense. I would highly recommend him for Algebra tutoring.

## 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.

## Knowledgeable, fun, patient, and helpful

Dave helped me pass my MEGA Middle School Content Exam and taught me how to look for the bigger picture as opposed to focusing on the tiny irrelevant details in math.
