I have taught at various levels for most of my life. While in high school and through undergraduate school I taught swimming lesson to children and adults. I was a laboratory instructor at the University of Delaware when I was finishing my doctoral work, where I instructed sophomore to 5th year seniors in a chemistry lab. I have experience working a a tutor. As a tutor I have worked with middle school and high school students in both the sciences and math. The sciences I have instructed include Physics, Anatomy/Physiology, and Chemistry. The areas of math I have instructed include Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Calculus, Cambridge Math, and Common Core Math. Finally, I have tutored several students in SAT and ACT testing.
For a bit more about my educational background, please consider the following. I attended high school in upstate New York, where I received a Regent Diploma. I have an Bachelors of Science degree in Chemistry, Marine Biology, and History from Roger Williams University. My graduate education was in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Delaware, where I received an Masters of Applied Science and a Doctorate.
I truly enjoy teaching. My favorite experience is to see the student have that "A-HA" moment. That very instance when they truly understand a concept.

Dave is tutoring my daughter in Physics. She has only had one tutoring session and is already feeling more confident. Dave is personable and really relates to the student. He presents the material in a way that can be comprehended. Very dependable, considerate, knowledgeable. Given his educational background, very well versed in science and math. I would highly recommend!
David tutored our son on trigonometry and pre-calc. He explained the concepts that my son have difficulty. Great tutor and would be glad to work withhim again.
David reviewed limits with My son. They worked on problems together and he encouraged independent thinking. He also came at very short notice which was appreciated.
We are very thankful to have found David to Tudor our son. After only 2 sessions, our son improved his SAT score by 60 points. We have more sessions to come, but I feel confident we will see more improvement. David is very knowledgeable and he has established a great working relationship to help encourage our son to keep working toward his goals.
David has been very patience and organized. He takes his time to review the materials to ensure that my daughter understands. Very happy with results. She is feeling better and more confident.
David and I went over a review sheet for my calculus final and he was excellent. I went into my exam confident and fully understanding the concepts behind the mathematics. I would recommend David to anyone having trouble with their math course.
On time. Knew the material. followed up with good summary. My son thought he was good. We will try to use him again. Thank you
David has been tutoring my son with algebra 2 since September, & has been extremely helpful! David also is very knowledgeable & patient when teaching as well.
David was able to help pin point my area of weakness and devise a plan to address these issues to implement in preparation for a final
Dave is very patient and knowledgeable. He knows how to teach. I can see the positive changes my daughter has toward her least favorite topic science after just several lessons. She is more confident and knows how to study the subject!
David has been helping my son in Geometry. He is very patient and great at keeping my son on task! His knowledge of the subject is impressive. We have had other tutors before, but David is head and shoulders above any of them. Can recommend David with confidence for your tutoring needs. He is easy to schedule and work with, you can not go wrong with David.
Knowledgeable and versatile. We initially retained David to assist my son with AP biology. However, my son advised...last minute...he needed help with honors. Without flinching David switched gears and helped him prepare for a major upcoming test! My son left feeling a lot more confident!
He is very knowledgeable and my children work well with him. He has worked with them on Chemistry and Algebra.
David worked with my son on Algebra. He quickly honed in on his strengths and weakness and gave him helpful and encouraging advice to address the weaknesses.
Your son is very bright and quickly picked up on my suggestions to improve his work. I enjoyed working with him.
My Teenagers both met Dave and worked w/ him for 30 minutes. Both were impressed and asked to have Dave return for more tutoring!
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.
I graduated with a degree in Chemistry before attending graduate school for Environmental Science. This knowledge was applied in both industry and academia. I have taught 3 years of college level chemistry (lecture and laboratory classes).
I have taught pre-algebra and algebra to adult students for 2 years.
Over two years experience with exam prep.
I graduated from the University of Delaware from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. This education gave me in depth knowledge of working with equations and data. I have taught several years of college level Pre-Calculus. These courses covers the majority of topics in Trigonometry.
