Very knowledgeable, positive, upbeat tutor

Our first session with David was a great success. He was so patient with our son and really connected with him on many levels. He has a passion for teaching and it shows in his work. We were so impressed and plan to use David as our tutor for homeschool for a long time! He cared about our sons interest, how he learns best and we are so impressed with him. He is talented in his way of working with kids.

Holds his attention span

My son enjoyed his math lesson. He also enjoys interacting with Mr. David. They are a really nice match. He really enjoys learning from him. In the past he complained about tutoring, but does not mind going with David..

Angela, 3 lessons with David

Very nice, knowledgeable and patient!

David is helping my son with his SAT. We have only just started, but my son is very pleased to have David help him. He is very knowledgeable and patient. We look forward to having more sessions with him.

Excellent and consistent Tutoring

I met David in 2013 at North Central Texas College where he was studying and tutoring. At the time I was looking for a college algebra tutor but was struggling to find someone who could accommodate my busy schedule and be patient with my learning pace. I did some tutoring sessions with David and couldn't have found a better candidate. 2 years later I've completed 3 levels of algebra and couldn't have done it without David's help.

Outstanding tutor!

David has been a great tutor. Very punctual, prepared, resourceful, and patient. He's almost a teacher. He's very patient and is able to explain what students are missing on the subject.

Best Tutor I Have Come Across!!

David is an amazing tutor who not only cares for your academic progress, but also your state of health, and will provide emotional and moral support. Very easy, and patient to work with, and is very encouraging, very highly recommended!

One Amazing Tutor!

David has done an excellent job in tutoring our daughter in Pre-AP Algebra II. David is very thorough with his lessons and takes the time to explain. We had a great deal of confidence in David from day one with his background check and he even provided his impressive credentials upon his first visit. He has made my daughter comfortable from the get go and put our minds at ease with his excellent teaching skills. If you are looking for a math tutor at any level, it would be a huge mistake to look any further than David. We won't hesitate to call on David in the future as we know he'll deliver.
