Dave is a great teacher and has helped me for 2 years whenever I have a problem he takes time out of the lesson to help me on a specific instruction. He pushes me to do better but we still go at a place we’re I am comfortable.
Adam
My kids loved Dave and can’t wait for him to come back!
Van
As highly as Dave's previous reviews spoke of him, he still managed to exceed any expectations I had. He was calm, reassuring, and it was immediately apparent just how comfortable he is teaching small children. Dave managed to hold the attention of my 5 year old for the entire lesson, and left my son excited about learning and confident that he can do it! I feel very fortunate to have found such a great teacher for my child.

One of the most rewarding aspects of an academic position is the opportunity to teach and
interact with students. Mathematics is known as an abstract but fascinating discipline. I have been immersed in it for many years and enchanted by its beauty. In the career of teaching, I always try to pass my passion by encouraging students to think, enlightening students about how to think, and offering students concrete examples that they can play with. Whether or not they realize it, students have the freedom to explore and to think about problems in new ways.

"Colin's vast knowledge in so many subjects allows him to find unique approaches to teach and tutor. He knows the material so well that he is always able to find ways in which to break down the process of understanding the material. Colin will also breakaway from the point at hand if he feels that there might be some basic knowledge that I might not be aware of, but will contribute to my understanding. He also provided me with techniques that have helped me restructure the way I learn. Overall, a great instructor that has helped me come a long way in my ability to learn."

Through her calm demeanor and patience she managed to help my daughter bring a failing math grade to a solid B. Bridget has been able to teach my daughter in a way that connects with her. Facing the rest of this long school year seems much easier knowing we have Bridget to help get us over those pesky humps with the dreaded 6th grade math."

"Mrs. Branch was my teacher for 3 years on Orcas island. Due to family and health struggles I often wanted to give up on ever graduating. However thanks to her dedication and passion for education not only did I graduate but she also relight my dream of one day teaching. I now teach in the very rooms she taught me and encouraged my education. The math lessons that I once despised her for assigning are now ones I used on a daily basis and am so glad she did not let me stop until I fully understood them."
