Hi! I am willing to help your child learn math and/or reading in a relaxed, friendly manner. I have 28 years of experience in accounting and math and love teaching what I've learned. Children enjoy my humor and easy going attitude while I'm showing them how to become proficient in math and/or reading. I did pass the CPA exam through dedication and I'll use that same dedication to help your child. Because of the scrutiny we face now, I do have my clearances. I also have 21 years of law enforcement experience. I will get the job done and your children will be happy that you picked me to help them.

Dave has been wonderful! He is very patient. He makes it fun to learn. He teaches alternative methods and tricks to learn and makes it easier to understand. Our grandson was having difficulty with multiplication but after working with Dave he has improved greatly. He took a test the second day of school and got an A! We credit that to Dave! He really inspired and guided our grandson to to his best! Thanks Dave! We are so glad we found him.
He tough my daughter American History . That was great . He made it easy to her and help her to understand it .
We have just completed our lesson plan for our sons fall semester in school. Dave was a great source to fall back on along with the teacher's style of teaching. Our son was shown different ways of learning this type of math (which is his least favorite subject), and that seemed to help him get a better grasp on the subject he was learning. Our son has improved with the help of Dave and did have higher test scores. Dave gave our son the confidence he needed to get through this class. If we needed Dave in the future for any more extra help in Algebra, we wouldn't hesitate to call him back. For new students/parents, give Dave a try; he is a nice person, reliable, patient and knowledgeable. Good luck to Dave and to his future students.
My daughter is struggling with her math skills. She has only had 2 sessions and has shown improvement. Her lack of confidence is still an issue. Dave M. has been on time, patient & encouraging. Looking forward to future tutoring from this excellent tutor!
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 played baseball from little league up through college. I had to quit playing due to an injury to me shoulder. I've played every position except catcher and third base. I also coached some little league with another father.
I played basketball from grade school through Jr. High. Several years later I played in a local law enforcement pick-up league for a few years. I also coached basketball at the local YMCA. I have played several different positions throughout my playing time. I am familiar with all of the rules and regulations of basketball for children.
I have a bachelors degree in Accounting and am a CPA. I have been tutoring elementary math, prealgebra, and algebra I for the last 1 1/2 years and I've received glowing recommendations. I teach from the book but I also use creative ways of showing the students how to remember their lessons. I took math classes all the way through college and finished with Calculus for Business Majors.
I played organized football for eight years. I started at several different positions throughout my playing time. I've also followed college and professional football for over 40 years. As a youth sports coach, I have conducted practices to help the kids learn the game and get stronger. This also helped sharpen their playing skills and learn game tactics and strategies. I have also provided motivational guidance to the players to help them through their game.
