About David


Bio

I like to help students solve each individual Math problem, and don't mind going through the problems step by step. I try to give illustrations when possible, and help students to understand how a rule might apply to a given problem.

I want to make myself available to whoever can use my help. I want to help students understand why certain rules apply in solving algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, or trigonometry problems. As far as experience, I worked for my college as a math tutor while...

I like to help students solve each individual Math problem, and don't mind going through the problems step by step. I try to give illustrations when possible, and help students to understand how a rule might apply to a given problem.

I want to make myself available to whoever can use my help. I want to help students understand why certain rules apply in solving algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, or trigonometry problems. As far as experience, I worked for my college as a math tutor while still in college, and nowadays tutor family members when needed. I work full-time as a computer programmer, but tutoring is my passion, because it provides an opportunity to get out there and make a difference in my community, as opposed to sitting in front of a computer all day long without much interaction with the general public during the work day. Seeing students improve their problem-solving skills motivates me to do better, not only in my career, but also in developing long-term relationships.

Computer

Microsoft Access,

Microsoft Access

In November 2013, I started developing a new billing software in Access to replace the existing one used at work. At the time, I already knew how to import text files, do some simple queries, and some very simple report generation, but knew little about coding in VBA. I since then completed and implemented this new billing software at work (in Feb 2016), and am continuing to enhance by adding more functionalities to it. I did not take a class to learn Access, but learned a lot by trial & error.

Knowledgeable and Patient

Responds messages promptly. He helped my daughter with Pre Calculus on her High School Junior year. He went over limit problems as x approaches a number from the left or right hand side. He also covered rewriting quotients that had the sum or difference of two fractions in either the numerator or denominator. At the end he left his notes with her.

Knowledgeable, patient, passionate about teaching. Highly recommend.

David took time to go over step by step through my son’s Algebra II homework. My son said David helped him. David also gave my son tips and information to improve math. My son feels like he’s catching up with his math homework now. Highly recommend David to everyone.

David was helpful in assisting my son with some perplexing trig concepts that he was struggling with and had to master for an upcoming exam. Will request his tutoring services in the future.
