About David

Hey There! My name is Dave F., and I work for the University of South Carolina as a Student Life professional. I have tutored elementary through college students for the better part of the last 8 years, and have aided dozens of students in the greater Columbia area achieve academic success. Not only do I enjoy aiding students in their academia, but I will strive to help a student stay positive through their studying, and aid them with test-taking skills.

My method of teaching is a simple Point A to Point B method, which I found to be most impactful when working with students. If there is a problem we can solve it, and I have great patience to help a student be successful. I have experience TAing college statistics, as well as 2 years of tutoring elementary school students.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Accounting

I have tutored several students in general and advanced accounting over the last two years. Many of the students I have worked with are currently in the University of South Carolina's Darla Moore School of Business, one of the top business schools in the country. I have helped them improve their subject knowledge, confidence, and overall performance in their coursework. Students I have worked with have gotten no less than a B+ on their final accounting grade!

Algebra 1

I have tutored algebra for multiple SAT preparatory courses. I have also tutored algebra, statistics, and geometry to students for over six years.

Business

I have received a business degree (Marketing emphasis) from the Sigmund Weis School of Business at Susquehanna University, a top business school in Pennsylvania. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a 3.7 GPA, and was inducted into the highest business honor society available at that institution.

I have tutored business students in the realm of finance, accounting, and statistics, as well as participated in Students in Free Enterprise, a national competitive business organization.

My internship experiences include working as a marketing manager for the largest cardiovascular health campaign in Philadelphia history, as well as a foreign logistics company based out of Singapore.

Career Development

In my graduate degree program, I had practicums in the Career and Leadership Center, advising over 100 students over the course of the year with their future career plans. My expertise is in resume aid, how to write a cover letter, and the best places to search for careers.

Elementary Math

I have tutored Elementary Math over the course of the last 7 years, starting from when I was in high school. Math is definitely a strong suit for me, and I feel that I can help any student with the studying skills and comprehension regarding Elementary Math.

English

I have tutored English in the form of SAT preparatory programs for the past year. I have a master's in higher education, which emphasized a curriculum heavy in writing and research.

Geometry

I started tutoring Geometry as a senior in high school, and have been tutoring this subject for the better part of 8 years. Most recently, I aided a student's comprehension and led her from getting "C's" on exams to "A's" and "A-'s". I also tutor Geometry as it relates to SAT preparation.

Marketing

I have received a business degree (Marketing emphasis) from the Sigmund Weis School of Business at Susquehanna University, a top business school in Pennsylvania. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a 3.7 GPA and was inducted into the highest business honor society available at that institution. I also had internships, domestic and foreign, in Marketing throughout my undergraduate career.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel exclusively since Fall 2007, and it has been a daily tool for my studies and work ever since. My experience with Excel ranges from basic tips and tricks, to pivot tables and formulas. I have utilized Excel in various subjects, including Statistics, Marketing, Assessment, and Research.

Public Speaking

I have presented at several national conferences (ACPA, BACCHUS, LeaderShape) and public speaking is a large part of my job duties and responsibilities in my current role as Off-Campus Student Services Coordinator. I have aided a peer education group in public speaking courses, and have a robust knowledge of public speaking.

I have also taken several courses on public speaking, and have been asked to speak in front of a variety of constituents, including undergraduate students, faculty, staff, and parents. I have given presentations to Mayor Nutter of Philadelphia, as well as financial presentations to Presidents of the universities I have attended.

Reading

I have tutored reading to all ages from K - college level. Most of my reading tutoring has been on SAT preparatory sessions, and fundamental reading with students K - 5.

SAT Math

I have tutored SAT Math and comprehensive test taking preparation for the last two years, aiding students in improving their scores drastically. Recently, I have helped a student increase their Math SAT score by over 200 points. I also have over 8 years in general Math tutoring ranging from fundamental Algebra to college level Statistics.

Statistics

I have tutored business statistics for over three and a half years in my undergraduate institution. During the last year of my business statistics tutoring, I was a Teaching Assistant for the course, aiding several hundred business students in comprehending statistics as it relates to applicable use.

Study Skills

I was an academic advisor for two years in my graduate program at Ohio University with their Office for Multicultural Student Access and Retention, aiding students in figuring out their best methods of studying, as well as motivating and encouraging those students. I am well equipped to aid any student in their studying habits, and I do my best to make studying an enjoyable experience for students.

Writing

My coursework through undergraduate and graduate work was very writing intensive, and I have over 6 years of college-level writing experience. I also teach a writing intensive course at a local university, which aims to prepare students for college-level academia. My experience writing and teaching writing ranges from a standard 3 page reflection paper, to a comprehensive, 70 pages research document.
