"I have been a STEM teacher / tutor for 20+ years, working in Austin, Hong Kong, Costa Rica, NYC, and Aspen. I have a Master's in Education from Texas State, and I got certified to teach Mathematics and Social Studies Grades 8-12 in Texas. As an undergrad, I studied Anthropology at Cornell University and got the opportunity to study abroad in Nepal. I recently earned a Professional Certificate in Data Analysis & Visualization from UT Austin.

I have ample experience helping people with standardized testing and will help you boost your score. In the words of a recent tutee: "David was a great tutor! Professional, on-time and extremely knowledgeable in math. He is a natural teacher and has a great way of breaking down concepts. He helped me raise my score on the GRE."

I have helped students skip entire years of math (e.g. Algebra I) with intensive summer tutoring, I have dug homeschooling parents out of holes at critical points, and I have worked with children over multiple years, providing steady ongoing support.

I strive to provide clear explanations of foundational skills as well as a sense of how it is applied. In a constructivist fashion, my students are guided to figure it out without me just revealing the answer. Ideally there is a balance between dismantling people's misconceptions and bad habits while building their self-esteem and problem solving ability. I am happy to communicate with your child's teacher to focus our lessons, and I can incorporate study skills techniques and organizational strategies.

In a New York Times article (9/13/09), Harvard Education Professor Dede explains: “One-to-one tutoring is the learning method proven time and again to sharply improve a student’s measured performance. A good human tutor can deliver a “home run,” educationally and statistically.”

I'm that tutor...try me. I enjoy working with adults and children, I find this type of educational interaction extremely rewarding, and I will set you up to succeed!" less...
