About Dave

Hello,

I am a certified math teacher for grades 7-12 (New York State as well as an experienced engineer having worked for GE consumer electronics and medical equipment manufacturers.

My strength lies in my ability to describe math clearly and to connect concepts to the real world. Many of my hobbies, like sailing and skiing, have math. I play up the fun aspect of math where possible in my examples.

My teaching background covers 10 years in a high school math lab and 3 more in a classroom. So most of my students came to me because math was challenging for them, if not downright impossible.

I recognize that everyone has strengths and weaknesses; I look for their strengths and tutor to that in order to build confidence.

I look forward to making your acquaintance and teaming up with you for success. It's a great feeling!
The first get together is on the house so you can judge the fit w/out penalty.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I am permanently licensed in NYS as a math teacher for grades 7-12. I have taught algebra I for 2 years in a classroom and have 10 years experience in a mathematics lab.

ASVAB

I am permanently licensed in NYS as a math teacher for grades 7-12. I have taught for 2 years in a classroom and have 10 years experience in a mathematics lab.

I took 4 years of ASVAB and consistently scored in the 90th percentile and above for each category.

Geometry

I have taught geometry for 2 years in a classroom. The beauty of it and why I find it to be fun is that we are surrounded by it. The ancient Greeks were mesmerized by the physical world so much that they tried to explain and organize properties of objects; from this arose the branch of geometry. Its usefulness can help us build a wood deck on a house or appreciate the immensity of the pyramids of Giza. A fun exercise I treat my students to is building a kite to fly out of tissue paper and chop sticks. Finally, I am a sailor and sailboats are drenched in geometry beginning with a triangular sail.

Logic

Logic is a branch of mathematics. It also plays a significant role in electronics. In light of the fact that I possess a 4 year degree in electrical engineering and a graduate degree in math ed, I have had considerable experience with this subject matter. Also, in my geometry classes an entire chapter was devoted to logic, which I taught.

Regents

Since I am NYS certified in Math 7-12, I am able to teach these Regents level classes and test prep for them as well.

Spanish

I am permanently licensed in NYS as a math teacher for grades 7-12. A requirement of any NY teacher is to take 2 semesters of a foreign language; I chose second year Spanish and earned A's despite having been many years out of high school (where I took it all four years and received A's and B's).
Spanish languageand culture is a serious hobby of mine. I maintain regular contact with my college professor and high school teacher!
