I am a professional software engineer who really enjoys teaching math and science. I have a BS in computer science and a minor in computational math from Arizona State University. I have previous experience tutoring through Huntington Learning Center where I worked for several years in my free time and as a tutor at Arizona State University while I was working on my undergraduate degree. I have also done private one on one and group tutoring.

My goal as a tutor is to make subject material...
Reviews
David is an outstanding tutor, and my son has seen impressive and fast improvements in his grades after each tutoring session. David helped my son immensely with his mid terms. I highly recommend David to anyone.
- Suzin T. from Southlake, TX
David is a very knowledgeable networks/CS tutor, who also finds the way to solve any particular issue going on with an assignment or task presented, highly recommend him.
- Santiago M. from Marietta, GA
David helped immensely with a final CS project. Very helpful and knowledgeable of programming subjects. He was able to simplify the explanation and provide me with the tools I needed to receive an outstanding CS course grade.
- Nicole N. from Coker, AL
David aided tremendously with a college level assembly language assignment. He was consistently helpful and patient. This was another assignment that a different assembly language tutor turned down due to its complexity.
- Gordon N. from Whitehouse Station, NJ
Very knowledgeable and easy to follow if you need help with Java I recommend using David. He was able to help me get all of my Java homework done and better understand it.
- David A. from Wauconda, IL
David was prepared and very knowledgeable. It is obvious that he knows the material well or can figure it out quickly. Overall a great tutor. I highly recommend him!
- Matthew B. from Allen, TX
David did an excellent job of explaining java for a beginner. He walked me through my code explaining so I will know where to start on my next project. He has practical experience and worked with my time schedule. Easy to talk to and willing to help.
- Ryan F. from Fort Collins, CO
David is who you need to go with. He is very helpful and willing to work with your schedule. I am in an intro to programming class with no prior experience and he was able to make sense of it for me. I will be asking for help from David again. Thanks David!
- Derek L. from Kailua, HI
So far David has been tutoring me since I began my journey in computer science and has been a great addition. He not only walks me through my class content (Java last semester and C programming this semester) but also gives me great insight on what to expect next as well as how to approach certain problems with the right perspective. I highly recommend.
- James D. from Los Angeles, CA
I liked how we wrote the program in pseudocode first, it helped me see what the program was expected to do and made it easier to write the code. He was very resourceful and made sure I understood everything before moving on. He even gave in depth explanations about each step.
- Amanda D. from Vancouver, WA
David is awesome, super patient and so knowledgeable that he practically finishes my questions for me as I'm asking them. I had some pretty obscure C++ issues for a course I'm taking and he set me straight. Highly recommend him.
- John S. from Chicago, IL
David is awesome and was super helpful yet again! He?s very patient, knowledgeable and thorough, and understands the material very very well.
- Tommy O. from Chicago, IL
David helped me through the code I was struggling with, and also gave me advice on how to be a better and more organized programmer. I look forward to more lessons! Definitely ask David if you need help with any kind of programming. He is worth the time and the money.
- Aaron M. from Houston, TX
I was having trouble optimizing my code to meet run time constraints while at the same time meeting memory requirements for a school project, and even though Mr. David had never seen my code and had to skim roughly one thousand lines of text in a short amount of time, he was able to easily and quickly point out places that could be reworked in order to expedite processes. In the end, Mr. David was able to help me optimize my code.
- Nikolai M. from Ann Arbor, MI
Dave met with my daughter for her first lesson and already feels more in control of the subject material. She confirms that he is personable, intelligent, skilled at breaking a complex topic down, and easy to communicate with. She looks forward to many more lessons.
- Lia Anna A. from Iowa City, IA
Dave was a last minute Hail Mary when my son ended up in an accelerated online course of study with less than timely responses from the Professors who were in another state. My son was thinking about dropping out of the program before we found Dave. Once Dave started tutoring him he maintained a 3.5 GPA. There are not enough positive words for Dave. Honestly he was beyond patient, available on a daily basis for questions and he understands real world application of what he is teaching (he tutored my son in computer science). He was very fair in how and what he charged. I recommend Dave to friends and family on a regular basis. Dave made catching the Hail Mary possible!
- Jill M. from Glendale, AZ
I have had a very tough time with getting through an incomplete with Data Structures and Algorithms, along with figuring out how to apply for an internship, and completing the rest of my requirements for my Computer Science degree, while taking care of an ill relative and David is helping me get through and make my goals feasible! He is also teaching me how to be a better and organized programmer too. Highly recommended.
- Antonio R. from Paradise Valley, AZ
David taught our son Advanced Algebra that he was having trouble learning at school. Our son said after the hour session with David he felt like he learned more than he had in the past 3 weeks at school. He said it all made sense when David explained it. Our son hopes to continue with more sessions.
- Connie W. from Des Moines, IA
I'm a Computer Science major at ASU and I have ADHD and several learning disabilities so this degree hasn't come easy to me but I love it nonetheless. I have to say, without Dave's expertise, I would not be anywhere near as successful in my classes. He is able to break down complex things into aspects that I can grasp and retain and is willing to go over the needed material as many times as needed for me to understand. Dave consistently displays an incredible amount of patience while I learn the material inch by inch at times. Getting my degree is a huge deal to me and I can honestly say Dave will be invited to my graduation. Bottom line: Whether it be Calculus or Computer Science, there is no better person to help you learn than Dave!
- Reid K. from Scottsdale, AZ
Dave goes above and beyond in his availability and in reviewing what the student needs assistance on. Beyond that, my son enjoys working with him!
