I am a married (over 35 years!) father of two wonderful daughters and have enjoyed - and been relatively successful ;-) - working with / teaching children and young adults since I was a teenager, and people of all ages throughout my adult life. I put myself through school by tutoring elementary and high school students. I also coached 8?15-year-old boys, football, and hockey, and worked at summer camps for a number of years teaching 6?16-year-old (male and female) photography (camera and dark...
I collaborated with tutors before on Wyzant, so when I needed some additional insight into the C++ language. I chose the Wyzant platform. I wanted to close some gaps that I had in my understanding of certain constructs and concepts in the C++ language. From the Wyzant website I was presented with a list of C++ tutors. I reviewed each prospective tutor?s background. I selected three tutors that I thought would fit my requirements and sent them emails. I selected David from my short list because I was impressed with his response. His response was organized and structured. He presented me with a list of questions so he could really understand my requirements. This diligence was followed throughout my tutoring sessions. David has extensive knowledge in the C++ language. I was finally able to understand concepts I struggled with for a few years. He would discuss the concept and help me to understand how to apply it for my course assignment. I enjoyed working with David. If you need to develop a firm grasp of the C++ language, you will certainly develop this proficiency with David.

David has been a reassuring presence through a difficult Operating Systems class. His years of expertise allowed him to navigate through a project with a large codebase that had multiple moving parts. He's incredibly honest, and will put in extra effort even outside of lesson time to ensure you are learning things right. I would highly recommend him to any student who needs help with programming implementation or conceptual understanding of OS.

David has been very helpful in helping me bridge the knowledge gap to get my college assignments done. He does this by breaking down the complexity into manageable and teachable components and then building it all back up.
- Duncan P. from Santa Monica, CA
David took the time to learn all about my assignment to be able to help me as best as he can. He made sure I understood what was going on before he moved on to a different subject, and you can tell he really knows alot about C.
- Katelyn B. from Portland, OR
David has to be one of the best tutors I have had on here. He always responded to my messages and is obviously very knowledgeable in programming. David spent time with me on my final project and ensured that I was able to get it done. You will not regret having a lesson with him !
- Chai C. from Espanola, NM
David is a excellent computer science tutor. He is very good at slowing things down and making sure you understand the material. David worked with me for a class I took in C on computer architecture, and was paramount towards my understanding of the material for the class. I would highly recommend David as a tutor if you are struggling and need help in your CS classes.
- Dylan G. from Bethlehem, PA
David was extremely helpful with my programming projects. David doesn?t just help with my work, but takes the time to teach me and make sure that I understood the material.
- Jennifer N. from Southampton, MA
David is teaching very well and is able to adjust the learning material and speed to the level and speed I was looking for. He is answering all questions and is very patience and supportive will definitely continue using his services and can highly recommend others to enjoy his teaching skills as well
- Eeron A. from Coppell, TX
As someone who strives to be a great teacher myself, I feel confident saying I know a good one when I see one. And that is David. This, in my opinion, is evident not simply by knowledge but when they ask, ?are you understanding this?? and/or ?is this making best use of your time??; each of which was asked multiple times. Definitely looking forward to working with him in the future and highly recommend.
- Demitrus B. from Vallejo, CA
David knows what he?s talking about and doesn?t waste anytime. Straight forward and great career advice. I highly recommend David. I plan on contacting him again.
- Riley B. from Portland, OR
David is a great tutor! I wish he could tutor me in every subject! Lol he is great I have learned a lot from him and enjoyed working with him so much that I have continued working with him to develop my skills even after my course has ended.
- Melissa K. from Whitesboro, NY
I have had 3 sessions I think now with David and I can honestly say that I have learned more working with him than I have the entire 6 weeks of this course prior to working with him. He is very patient and he takes the time to make sure you understand what you are doing. He has been absolutely wonderful!!!
- Melissa K. from New York, NY
I went on Wyzant because I felt like my programming skills were really weak. As a full time Software Engineer, I struggled with trying to self-study on my own time. I would spend hours on what seemed to be simple concepts. My tutoring sessions with David have gone extremely well. He is a very personable, committed and dedicated tutor. His explanations and examples are very thorough and clear. His lesson summaries are beyond detailed and filled with resources. I now understand concepts that I used to struggle with. Aside from the technical help, David has provided valuable career development advice that I trust. My only regret is not finding about Wyzant/David sooner! I look forward to my future sessions with David for the year(s) to come. I seriously recommend David!
- Stephanie G. from Carson, CA
Every lesson is a gem. I enjoy working with David. Keep at it and keen to explore more with David on the C language.
- Stella V. from Sunnyvale, CA
David basically held my hand through a big part of the ETL process. He was very helpful and would always teach me what I needed to know. Came in knowing very little so it was hard to understand
- Collin M. from Kansas City, MO
David is a pro teacher. He genuinely wants his students to learn, and he is dedicated to their success. David has helped me by providing daily motivation to continue working through the hard problems assigned in class and providing a helping hand along the way. David will provide the answer to a problem if you are stuck, but other than that his technique involves guiding the student to think for themselves, providing guidance even outside set lesson times. I would recommend David to any hard working student who is interested in learning more than what can vibe taught in a regular college class and wants to use every tool to ensure their success.
- Eric S. from Gunnison, CO
A lot of tutors on here can't tutor for something like Assembly code and stuff related to systems, at least from what I saw but David was able to help with that. He is very smart and patient.
- Matt F. from Chicago, IL
After trying a few tutors I found that David?s tutoring works for me the best. David is not just helping you with understanding a problem or complex subject but he builds approach and multi-step framework with great examples to make you fully understand the subject through practice which makes you to be a better programmer.
- Andre P. from Berkeley, CA
My son is very lost in his Systems Programming Class but David did an excellent job with explaining what he could in the amount of time they had to work with. I wish I had known about David earlier!
- Yolanda D. from Fredericksburg, VA
I already had a good background with C but was stuck on linked Lists and pointers. He helped me understand the problems I was having and gave me the tools I needed to approach many different types of linked lists. Thank you!
