Hello Everyone! I am a graduate teaching assistant at Cleveland State University in Cleveland, OH in the mathematics department. Previously, I have taught Calculus at a private school in Beachwood, OH, and worked as an undergraduate math tutor. I have several years of tutoring experience with high school and college students in topics from basic Algebra to Real Analysis. My favorite subject to work on with students is Linear Algebra, since it is a common language in many mathematical and engineering disciplines and is really interesting in it's own right. I utilize MATLAB/Octave and Python for computations where appropriate.

The structure of a tutoring session with me can be whatever you are most comfortable with. If we need to completely rediscover an idea, that's totally okay. If you just need some clarification and want to lead the session by asking questions, that's great. If you don't know what you don't know, we'll figure it out and go from there. It is YOUR session and you have the right to run it how you want.

A few side notes:

1. I have two types of cancellation fees. One is for cancelling a lesson within the 2 hour range. While this may impact my day it does not prevent me from being productive during that time so I will only charge $10.00 for this. The other is for a "no-call-no-show" which is a legitimate waste of my time and I will assess a charge for the entire planned lesson. I reserve the right to make exceptions to this in the event of emergencies or other unforeseen circumstances.

2. I will not assist in original research that is to be submitted for academic credit; e.g. Master's or Doctoral Theses.

3. I wholeheartedly believe in academic integrity and will in no way assist a student in cheating in a course.

Incredible teacher!

I went through about 5 tutors and none have instructed better than David. He explained Calc 2 material clearly and concisely and knew what he was doing. This was great as we got through a lot of complex material at a quick rate (which was also cost effective)! Great guy.

James, 4 lessons with David

Calculus II Tutor

David is great. He was able to work with my son on very short notice to get him ready for a Calculus II exam. He worked with us to find a schedule that would work for everyone, and my son feels that he is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and that he will be able to give him the help he needs to do well in this class this semester.

One Step Closer!

Thank you David for helping understand the core concepts behind multi-variate linear regression and logistic regression all in about an hour! You were really patient with me and helped me identify parts of the logistic algorithm I can work on for next time. Very Responsive and Knowledgeable. I am one step closer to completing my courses in Machine Learning on Cousera.

Informative but easy to follow

David is widely knowledgeable and uses very intuitive examples. He is willing to take his time and answer questions as you go. I found it especially helpful that he had a background both in math AND statistics. I highly recommend him!

Great Break Down of Core Concepts

I am just getting back into coding in general and I left the session feeling I am on a good track towards learning what I need to do really understand linear regression in octave.
