About David


Bio

Although I was a meteorologist for 40 years I always loved math more than anything and always wanted to teach students who found math a challenge or difficult.

I have had almost 5 years of experience tutoring math including algebra, geometry, trig, SAT Math and GED math. I have helped students understand and have found it more rewarding than my career.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

I have tutored GED math as a volunteer once a week for the past two years. I really enjoy teaching the building blocks which include elementary math. I have created some sheets that help students understand some very basic but very important rules.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra was a very fun subject for me in high school. I believe I can teach it in a way to make it very understandable and fun at the same time. I have tutored it once recently with my student passing the regents. I am retired from a 40 year career in meteorology but math is my passion!
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is the subject that I have had the most experience tutoring and I love teaching it. I have had three students over the past two years, all of whom have passed the regents (one just this past June). Geometry stands alone in many ways but is also very interrelated with algebra which I also have an excellent knowledge of.

Recently I worked over the phone with a student going over numerous SAT math questions. This process went very well. I have an excellent understanding of this level of math. I taught using a copy of The Official SAT Study Guide 2nd Edition by CollegeBoard.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

I found trig to be the purest form of high school math. I loved it as a kid and had almost a perfect year when I took the subject. I scored 100% on the regents exam with quarterly grades of 98 or 99 all quarters. Although that was in 1965-66 I still have a complete understanding of trig and believe that I could make most students understand how it works.

great Algebra tutor

My son is catching on to Algebra so much better with help of his tutor David. His grades are improving and that makes me happy because it’s building my son confidence level.

He's knowledgeable, patient and truly cares. A good teacher!

David was a great help to my son again this year. He's very easy to contact and schedule sessions which made it very easy for me. He's knowledgeable, patient, and truly cares that he is providing my child with the necessary tools needed to succeed. We will most definitely be contacting David in the future to help my daughter next!

Jill, 9 lessons with David

Love of math is contagious!

David clearly loves math and inspired my son to find the fun in his work. He is very patient and keeps the positive feedback flowing. My son had a few lessons this summer to gear up for 7th grade pre-algebra and geometry. He is looking forward to the new school year and can hit the ground running thanks to David's expertise. I would recommend him highly.
