## Knowledgeable and patient math tutor

Lisa, 65 lessons with DaveWhen I was searching through Wyzant for the right tutor for my daughter I knew I wanted a real math teacher- many folks clearly know math but knowing math and knowing how to teach math is totally different. Dave B is an experienced high school math teacher skilled at to explaining complicated mathematical ideas using different approaches to meet the student where she or he is. I would strongly recommend Dave B.

If you want someone who is friendly, approachable, highly qualified, and is able to thoroughly explain concepts so you have a deep and lasting conceptual understanding, then I am the tutor for you. I promise to give you my very best effort at all times!

I have a passion for mathematics and love helping students understand such a great subject! It is very rewarding to help students understand content they thought was difficult and beyond their capabilities. My tutoring experience is extensive...

Dave has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **5 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Outstanding Honors Geometry tutor

Dave is patient, funny, and encouraging. And he really knows his stuff. We have struggled to find a tutor who is really very versed in Geometry specifically--and Dave has that in spades. He encouraged my son to focus on what he DOES know and begin to work a problem or a proof from there. This is a very empowering way to teach, and has helped my son see math problems in a brand new way. I am grateful for the time that Dave has spent with my son in helping him tackle Honors Geometry!

## great teacher

He did a fantastic job helping my daughter through Algebra - will be back in the fall for Geometry 😊

Rebecca, 14 lessons with Dave

## Knowledgeable, clear & nice!

He was really easy to talk to and explained concepts I have been struggling with in a clear way that I could understand. I feel confident now that I catch up in my Algebra 2 class. Thank you Dave!

## Helpful and great follow through!

We have appreciated everything Dave has done for our son this year. He made Geometry manageable for our Sophomore. We have appreciated the many options to choose from regarding scheduling, his follow through afterwards with notes and videos of the sessions, and he connected great with our son. Thanks, Dave!
