About David

I have a Ph.D. in applied mathematics from Rensselaer Polynechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY. My area of expertise is modeling phenomena from the natural and engineering sciences using mathematical techniques which are then compared with observational and experimental data relevant to the phenomena under investigation.

I have taught calculus sequence courses at RPI, SUNY Albany, and Washington State University and tutored students at all these institutions. My tutoring strength lies in recognizing why students have difficulty mastering a certain concept and providing them with strategies to alleviate those deficiencies by learning from first principles rather than merely by rote.

If you are having any trouble in those courses for which I may be able to provide help, please feel free to contact me and schedule the relevant tutoring session.

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.

Calculus

I am a retired WSU Professor of Mathematics who has taught numerous students calculus and differential equations during my professional career.

Differential Equations

I have over 70 papers in print in academic journals on differential equations and regularly taught MATH 315 Introduction to Differential Equations and MATH 440/ 540 Applied Mathematics I which involves the partial differential equations of mathematical physics at WSU.
