Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
Ever ask yourself, "When am I ever going to use this...?" I make math relevant to the real world. I teach methods to check work, do mental math, and logical problem solving to address even the hardest of math problems. I have proven methods for doing the often dreaded "story problems" as well...!

I let my students tell me what they understand about a problem, and then fill in the blanks from there. I have found that if a student can explain how and why a problem is solved in a particular way, that they will be able to solve other problems with confidence and ease!!

David is very knowledgeable in writing and specially resume writing.Me and many other students in school have been advised by him for resume writing. He knows different helpful tools to use for making a very professional resume, like valid references to select the best fit words.
During the process of editing my resume he also taught me different methods to update and edit my resume by myself .He spends as much time as he thinks is required to have an excellent result. Also it was clear that due to his valuable experience he has a very wide horizon which leads to his ability of writing various writing texts.
Beside that, he is very passionate and generous to help others and definitely very active updated in the areas of his work. Truly, His nice character makes it really pleasant for anybody to work with him .

Dave has been very helpful and patient. As a busy mom that I am I had never had the time to learn and master any skill in the kitchen. He has share with me skills that I had been able to implement in my life to facilitate and expedite my time in the kitchen. My family is enjoying the cookies, and cakes and I am able to prepare myself.

I am a former employee of David's and I had expressed interest with updating and making my resume more advanced. He gave me some of the best advice, suggestions, and even referred me to a couple of websites that proved to be very helpful. During the review process, David first pointed out all of the good aspects I had on my original resume. On the parts he thought should be tweaked or edited, he gave advice and pointers in a positive manner. He also took his time really picking apart the resume, making sure he was giving me 100% of the information that he could. With confidence, I can say I am now very proud of my resume and happy with how my strengths really stand out, thanks to the help given from David.
