About David


Bio

After the years of many various teaching positions, since 1999, I have discovered that teaching is a significant part of my life's purpose. I have worked in daycares, schools and churches. From creating lesson plans to following set curriculum, I have taught art, math, science, test prep, study skills, writing, and reading. My hope is to help students find their way to their goals. That focus puts me at a student centered approach to my sessions.

After the years of many various teaching positions, since 1999, I have discovered that teaching is a significant part of my life's purpose. I have worked in daycares, schools and churches. From creating lesson plans to following set curriculum, I have taught art, math, science, test prep, study skills, writing, and reading. My hope is to help students find their way to their goals. That focus puts me at a student centered approach to my sessions.

My teaching philosophy is that each student is always capable of learning. I have learned in my teaching history and personal study that we all learn in various ways. All people are intelligent in some way. I seek to find my student's strengths and teach them how to use those strengths to overcome their weaknesses. I also hold to the old proverb that a student does not care what you know until they know you care. I develop a professional friendship with my students that helps facilitate a unique learning environment. Because all students are different, every tutoring situation is customized for the student or group of students that I work with.

I have been tutoring since 2005 and have helped students of all ages succeed in math from elementary math through Calculus. Students have found success from simply completing their class to helping them find a new love for math. I enjoy working with all students of all ages and am easily connected to helping younger students succeed. I have experience with many students and see the need to adjust methods and interactions to be sensitive to the students developmental ability.

I have finished a Master's in Education and enjoy finding the best way for each individual student to succeed. I have also tutored GRE and GMAT for the past five years and have helped adult students see simple strategies to increase their scores. Simplifying the direction for study has been the greatest asset for the students I have worked with. Many adults preparing for the GRE and GMAT face a plethora of material that is often difficult to distill

Fantastic Tutor

David is very prepared for every lesson. He is excellent at reviewing the tricks to do better on your ACT. I have had to adjust time a couple of times and he was very good at making those adjustments.

Great First Impression

The first meeting with David went well. David is extremely good at explaining math problems and demonstrating a correct way to solve them. He ensures that you understand the math formula before moving on, as well as, provides visual examples to enhance the knowledge of each problem. Davis is providing my son the tools he'll need to be successful in math.
