My name is David, and I'm a semi-retired teacher.
I graduated with academic honors from the University of Nebraska in 1984 and have over 30 years as a full time teacher in California classrooms working mostly with elementary and middle school aged students and subjects, but I'm also comfortable with most of Algebra I and Geometry.
I'm sure we'll be able to meet your online goals as well!
I am writing to inform you that David Petty has been tutoring my 4th grade son, Ryan for this year. He patiently teaches my son and help him to understand concept of the subject he teaches. He gets along very well with my son and since he has been tutoring Ryan, his grades has been improved. His is a good teacher who patiently work with his student. I am happy for having him as my son's tutor.
I am the father of two children, one in the 2nd grade and one in the 4th, who currently attend Ronald Regan Elementary School in the Panama Buena Vista School District in Bakersfield, California. David Petty has been a personal tutor for both of my children for the past year, the older of whom is in the GATE program. He has expressed to me that he may be seeking employment away from Bakersfield, and if he leaves, I'll lose an excellen tutor. Both my children readily relate to David as a teacheand a person. They have fun during the lessons while they are learning and being challenged. I highly recommend David as a teacher.
Great Job! My son struggles with algebra. Working with David was very good for him. David is very patient. He provided lots of encouragement. As practical matter, we found David easy to work with. He could quickly and easily work with our schedules to find a convenient time to work. As a working mom and dad, we really appreciate this. Thank you!
David is Amazing David has been working with my son for the past 5 weeks on math, science, and general study skills. Not only has his test scores gone up, but his entire attitude towards school has improved. David is poised, patient, caring, and is just simply great with children. He has so many tools that make learning an easier and enjoyable thing. He made math a ton less complicated for my 5th grader, which is a victory in and of itself. I would recommend anyone with a struggling child to use David as their tutor. He's an amazing teacher but an even better person.
