About David

Hello! My name is David. I am a husband and father of 4 children. I graduated from Lebanon Valley College in 1998 with a Business Management degree. For the past 13 years I have help different sales positions, but most notably owned an insurance agency. I decided in 2011 to make a career change into Education and recently completed my Masters Degree with McDaniel College. I now hold a certification in Mathematics grades 7-12. I have always had a passion for working with children and even coached High School Football for the past 13 years. When I am not teaching I love to spend time with my family. I enjoy golfing and watching Notre Dame Football. I set high expectations in everything I do including teaching. As a parent I understand the value of a teacher who can make a difference in the lives of children, which is why I entered into the field of education.

Helping students succeed in Mathematics is very important to me. I understand the challenges that students face especially with the transition to common core curriculum. During my teaching certification process I conducted many after school study sessions to help students who may need additional assistance. I also held weekly study sessions to help students prepare for HSA exams along with SAT prep. My goal is to ensure students perform to the best of their ability in mathematics.


Math, Algebra 1 and 2, SAT, Geometry, Precalculus, Prealgebra, Statistics, Trigonometry, SAT (Math), PSAT, PSAT (Math)

During my preparation for certification I student taught at both middle and high school level focusing particularly in Common Core Algebra. I have seen the struggles students have faced with this new curriculum and understand the necessary measures needed for them to succeed.

SAT
During my student teaching I assisted in SAT prep classes. I have a thorough knowledge of the content that will appear on the exam and strategies for to ensure success on the SAT exam

STATISTICS
During my undergrad studies I took a lot of statistical and data analysis classes. Also during my career in sales I had to incorporate many statistical and data analysis studies in a real world setting.

Please contact me for a free analysis, so that we can develop the best plan of action for you or your child to succeed.

Wonderful tutor!

My daughter feels very comfortable working with David. He is very helpful and very good at explaining how to work math problems out. My daughter told me she wishes she had met him earlier because she really learns a lot working with him.
