About David


Bio

Since 2002 tutoring has been my passion and career. I am hard pressed to think of a time in my life when helping others learn has not been a part of my life. When I was in high school, I was asked to be a peer tutor in mathematics. I accepted and since then I have made time within my schedule to tutor or teach. Nothing I have done has ever compared to the thrill of seeing a person's face light up when they master a concept.

I have bachelor of art degrees in biology, chemistry and computer...

Since 2002 tutoring has been my passion and career. I am hard pressed to think of a time in my life when helping others learn has not been a part of my life. When I was in high school, I was asked to be a peer tutor in mathematics. I accepted and since then I have made time within my schedule to tutor or teach. Nothing I have done has ever compared to the thrill of seeing a person's face light up when they master a concept.

I have bachelor of art degrees in biology, chemistry and computer science. I hold master of science degrees in medicinal chemistry and computer science. I have completed the training and student teaching necessary to obtain my residency teaching certificate in Washington state with a mathematics endorsement.

I am comfortable working with students from middle school, high school, college and adult learners. I have worked with students in math from pre-algebra to Calculus and Statistics. I have worked with students in physical sciences, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, including AP level classes. I have taught C++, C#, Java, HTML/CSS, Javascript, PHP, database and operating system classes.

Knowledge and Patient tutor

He help breakdown the problem in small steps and was very knowledgeable about programming. He also was very patient in the session. He was a very big help. I would recommend him to anyone who is struggling with Computer Science.

Garrett, 1 lesson with David

He was patient and flexible to my schedule

I really appreciate David responding back to me quickly and getting an appointment schedule. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to help me solve the some of the coding problems I was struggling with but without a doubt if I needed to build a code I think he would be a great resource.
