I can make the topics interesting and am very patient. If a student is struggling, I try to find the right "handle" to use to allow the student to understand the concept. I teach math because I enjoy watching students catch on to a concept. I also enjoy it when a student who did not previously value math, becomes very interested and self-motivated to learn more. My goal is to empower students to understand math on their own by getting them to realise that the concepts are not as difficult as they had previously thought. I am understanding of the difficulties they may have with math and am constantly encouraging.
Having completed two careers, one in the US Air Force working in the space industry and the other in IT, I have a wealth of experience upon from which to draw examples for math. I can teach maths from year 5 to university level. I have a MS degree in Astronautical Engineering and taught university level maths for 14 years in the USA. I also tutored math for two years in California. I am currently tutoring math in Melbourne Australia.

David tutored me in statistics while I was studying graduate level math at the University of Melbourne. I had very little math background to draw upon but he made it work so well and was able to provide me ways to apply the math using my own understanding of mathematics. He has an excellent capability for grasping how one's logical mind works, and then applying that to the language he uses in order to get someone to understand something. In the end I passed the subject with a high distinction. I highly recommend him for anyone requiring tutoring in any level math, he works well with all age groups and learning abilities.
