Hello potential student and/or parent.
My name is David A. and I live in the Liverpool area outside of Syracuse, NY. I have worked with children to help them improve their study habits for years... about 22 years off and on. And for the 20 years I was a nurse, I trained patients and their caregivers how to be more independent with their needs.
I believe some of the more basic and important things... such as spelling, grammar, being able to do mathematics in one's head and without a calculator, and learning the ways to overcome hatreds of self and others... are being overlooked in the cookie cutter environment of schooling today. If I am unable to get through to a person one way, I try several different directions until I breach whatever the barrier that blocks me from reaching the person. It is my feeling that children should be treated with the respect one would offer to anyone else. Much of the first lessons I have with pupils is an assessment of their needs and my ability to reach them while I teach them their subjects.
My son is a special needs child with Asperger's, ADHD, and some autism. I helped him learn to overcome these barriers (along with his teachers, mother, and counselor), and he has maintained Honor Roll at Liverpool School consistently. He is finishing up his 8th grade studies this Spring.
I prefer to Tutor in the familiar environment I have at home. I am a recovering brain-injured person, and it helps me to work in the same local all the time. When checking my recovery from my injuries, my intellect was noted as being in the upper 95th percentile with my abilities to communicate in the 99.9th percentile.
I have yet to have a student I have not been able to help.
I hope together we can help you and/or your child reach your goals.
Thanks for your time and consideration.

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.
