After 26 years as a NJ public school science and computer teacher, I retired to become a one-on-one tutor. I discovered I love tutoring, and adjust my teaching style based on what works best and feels most comfortable for each individual student. I taught practically every science course during my teaching career, including AP Chemistry. My goal as a tutor is that every session should be a positive learning experience. I tutor math and science online 20-30 hours a week. · Middle School Math & Science · High School Science (all classes) · High School Algebra 1 & Geometry · College level Biology & Inorganic Chemistry. My tutoring philosophy comes down to this: · First, I strive to create a positive learning experience for my students. · Second, improve my students understanding of the subject matter. · Third, well everything else falls into place after those two. Grades improve Attitude improves Self-confidence improves My personal mottos are: Being wrong is wonderful, because now you know more than you did before. You can't learn something you already know.

I am really lucky to have found David as my son's science tutor. He is not just a good teacher, he is a great teacher! It is one thing to know subject, and another skill to teach it. David is not only knowledgeable, he knows how to teach. He can get down to the student’s level and impart lessons that the student can grasp and appreciate. He is very patient and encouraging and offers valuable feedback and advice. He is generous with sharing tips and tricks that not only makes it easy but also helps to score. My son loves him and really enjoys the lessons, there is nothing more that I could have asked for. I appreciate that he generously accommodates my requests for extra help with school assignments and tests. I can sincerely recommend David for anyone’s tutoring needs. And last but not the least, thank you David!
David is an excellent chemistry tutor. He is very detail and patient with his student. David will go above and beyond to make sure his student understands each lesson and he really cares for his student. It is not only about tutoring session time but wanting to make sure the student us sucessful in the subject. As parent he informs you regarding your child's weaknesses and strengths. He always available to answer questions. My child's grade increase within a week.
I wanted to share how much Jonny likes your tutoring. His chemistry teacher doesn’t explain the material well, leaving Jon (and the other students) confused. I have listened in on some of your sessions and I have heard “oh, now I get it’ many times. And I see you truly are patient with Jon. I will be referring you to the other parents that I know. I don’t think he would pass the course without you. Thank you so much David!!
