I enjoy helping people appreciate and succeed at math. It's always interesting to figure out what's causing a student difficulty, and how to help them find the best strategy to understand math. I can work with you to design lessons that will guide you to mastery in the courses you're struggling with. You can sharpen your problem solving skills and build confidence in class. Most importantly, you can learn about the strengths you didn't realize you had and improve your ability to make and accomplish goals and learn difficult subjects independently.
As a grad student, I taught algebra, pre-calculus, and the full calculus sequence at the university level, and spent many hours one-on-one with students in office hours and in private tutoring. I've also tutored students in linear algebra, discrete mathematics, and other advanced courses (my personal favorite is group theory). I've had the opportunity to work with undergraduate students, high school students, and students not in formal education programs, to help them learn and achieve their goals in mathematics. I would love to help you do the same.
My cancellation policy: please let me know 6 hours in advance if you need to cancel a scheduled lesson. If you cancel a lesson within 6 hours of the meeting time (or don't show up to the lesson) I may charge half of my hourly rate. I enjoy helping people appreciate and succeed at math.

David helped my daughter to begin to catch up with her understanding of Algebra 2 and worked with her on those areas where she is having difficulty understanding the material. Look forward to continued sessions with David.
I believe david is a great choice for my sons tutor. They connected we will definitely be using david again I feel confident he will be of a big help
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.
My degrees (B.S. Mathematics, M.S. Mathematics) included courses in discrete mathematics (including topics such as basic probability, counting problems, abstract logic, sets, and functions, permutations, and induction), as well as courses built on this material (such as abstract algebra). I have tutored in this subject, and also assisted in a discrete mathematics course at UNC. My Master's thesis concerns a class of labelled, directed graphs (called Cayley graphs), a topic which may appear in a discrete mathematics/combinatorics style course.
As a Bachelor's and Master's student in Mathematics, I took several courses in linear algebra including courses in advanced/abstract linear algebra (i.e. fields and vector spaces). I've also assisted a course in linear algebra at UNC, and tutored students in the subject as well.
