About David

I love teaching and helping students realize their potential. I am a graduate of some of the most competitive math and science programs in the country and have a passion for sharing knowledge while watching students improve their skills and GPAs.

I specialize in tutoring physics and helping students improve their math scores on tests such as the SAT, ACT, and GRE. I have professional experience in data science, consulting, and market research as well as a strong educational background with a BS in mathematics, an MS in Applied Physics, and an MBA.

I am generally available for tutoring after 5 pm CST on weeknights and Saturdays before noon. I prefer to meet students online but can travel some within the Southwest Austin/Dripping Springs area (although an additional rate will apply).

I look forward to hearing from you and look forward to helping you achieve new levels of success!

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.

Algebra 1

I have extensive academic experience in Algebra 1. My qualifications include a Bachelor of Science in mathematics and scored in the top 15% of math educators on the Praxis math teaching exam, including Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is THE most important building block for mathematics and I love teaching it. I strive to teach concepts and processes instead of memorization. I have an BS in mathematics.

Geometry

Geometry is one of my favorite subjects to teach! I specialize in helping students apply geometric concepts (instead of just memorizing formulas). I have a BS in mathematics from the U.S. Naval Academy.

GRE

Let me help you get into graduate school! I'm well versed on the math section of the GRE as I have both an MS in applied physics and an MBA. I can also help you with some valuable test taking strategies to help you maximize your score.

Physics

Physics is my specialty! I have a masters degree in applied physics. I prefer to teach students logic, processes, and concepts instead of rote memorization of equations. I also like to help students visualize physics problems by helping them illustrate concepts.

Precalculus

Let me help you get ready for calculus! Success in precalculus is vital to calculus and I can help you learn concepts and processes that will get you ready. I have a BS in mathematics from the US Naval Academy and an MS in applied physics. Furthermore, I scored in the top 15% on the Praxis math teaching exam.

Probability

What are the odds you'd find my probability qualifications? I specialize in teaching students concepts and processes instead of rote memorization. I have a BS in mathematics, an MS in applied physics, and an MBA. In addition, I scored in the top 15% on the Praxis math educator exam.

SAT Math

Let me help you get into your dream college! The SAT math is extremely important and I can help you navigate all of its twists, turns, and concepts. In addition, I can give you valuable test taking strategies to maximize your success.

Trigonometry

Let's do some trig together! A firm foundation in trigonometry really pays off in more advanced mathematics courses. I can help you decode this subject by teaching you concepts and processes (instead of rote memorization). I have a BS in mathematics, an MS in applied physics, and an MBA. In addition, I scored in the top 15% of math educators on the Praxis math exam.
