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.
