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.

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.

very patient

David’s teaching style is very simple. He makes difficult task so easily understandable. I was struggling in class and within 3 lessons I had so much more clarity of what I was doing.

Kavhon , 5 lessons with David

Great Tutor

David is a great tutor, he's patient and I enjoy my sessions with him. He definitely helps me understand Computer Science. I highly recommend him if you need help with computer science.

Karen, 7 lessons with David

David was awesome to work with!

David walked me through some concepts step by step making sure I understood what I had to do. He was very patient, and had lots of experience with what I was learning.

Morgan , 4 lessons with David

Flexible, Patient, and Thorough

Was able to assist with problems without preparation for them ahead of time. Patient and thoroughly explains concepts and procedures from start to finish, and very helpful with catching student's mistakes.

Natalie, 5 lessons with David

One of the best tutors I've ever worked with

I would recommend David to anyone that's looking for help with C++. He was a pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable. He explained concepts to me that my professor was unable to

John, 2 lessons with David

Knowledgeable Tutor

David helped me to debug an error in my Lexical Analyzer. He was very patient with me and worked with me as we went line by line to determine what I had done wrong in my coding. I highly recommend his services.

Alethea, 1 lesson with David

Knowledgeable, kind tutor

David is teaching my son C++ programming. My son really enjoyed the session and said that David is very nice. They start weekly sessions this week. My son was happy we found David.

Great lessons

We've been so pleased with David's tutoring. He has a great way of giving the big picture and tying in the details so that it all makes sense. We also appreciate his professionalism. End of 8/12 Addendum - We were so pleased with David's tutoring and professionalism until one day he just did not show up again or answer any of the messages we left for him. I am very upset at the lack of courtesy or professionalism that he showed.

Jean, 15 lessons with David

Great Help

David is very patient with my nephew who is getting help in AP Computer Science. It was certainly a big undertaking to dive into this class without any previous coding experience. So David's task is not only to teach him course knowledge, but also logical thinking and problem solving. My nephew appreciates getting help from David.

Lynda, 8 lessons with David

An excellent tutor!

David is a very patient math tutor. Not only does he provide great examples but he takes the time to provide overall understanding of the subject matter. David really seems to have a special talent for teaching.
