Mathematics Tutor for year 5 to year 12, and university maths. I am a recently retired from two careers: one with the US Air Force working in the space technology industry and most recently, from an IT career specialising in business intelligence. I have a wealth of experience from which to draw examples. 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 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.
I have a Master of Science Degree in Astronautical Engineering.



I tutored for approximately 2 years in the USA and in the evenings, taught university level maths for 14 years.

"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."
