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.

Good teacher and knowledgeable

Good teacher, patient and knowledgeable of what I need to be successful for my ATI test. He showed me different strategies and has identified my weaknesses immediately.

Tahira, 1 lesson with David

Knowledgeable and very patient

My daughter expressed how David makes geometry fun and explains the concepts so well she’s understanding with him what her teacher didn’t explain during the school year. He even gave her tips on remembering certain formulas in order to be able to solve the problem.

Leslie, 3 lessons with David

Very helpful!

David was very helpful to my daughter in geometry. He helped her understand the rules and basic foundation on how to approach the subject matter. He even took a little extra time to help her with chemistry. We look forward to working with David 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.

Great Teacher

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.

Very good teacher for calculus

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.
