EducationBachelors degree in finance and a multiple subject teaching credential.
ExperienceMy name is David D. Makki and I have been a professional fully credentialed teacher for the past 20 years. I taught 12 years with the Fremont Unified School District in kindergarten, fourth, and sixth grade. For the past eight years I have been a tutor and educational contractor teaching elementary, high school, and college students. I teach all subjects in kindergarten- high school. Regarding college students I specialize in writing, US history, math, study skills, and giving speeches.
I enjoy having a well versed academic background. My education includes a degree in finance and a multiple subject teaching credential. History is an interest of mine. I’ve traveled to 4 Presidential Libraries, 5 Civil War battle fields, and 3 Revolutionary War battle fields across the country to research history first hand. I’m in the process of writing my first book about college sports and have written articles to support local organizations. At Niles Elementary School I directed the after school theater program for 5 years and wrote two of our plays.
Working with children is a passion of mine. I am patient and have a calm demeanor. I've been successful in getting the best out of my students at all ability levels. Establishing a strong relation with the parents is important to me. My standard rate is $50 per hour. I have limited number of appointment times after school and am looking for home school and college students in the morning and early afternoon time.
I look forward to having the opportunity to help your child achieve their full academic potential.

I was looking for help to improve my English skills and I met Mr. Makki. He did a great job. Mr. Makki knows a lot of English and American history... We used to meet at the Coffee Shop to study and sometimes people heard his lessons and came over to congratulate him because of the great job he was doing. I am happy with how much I improved! So, I would highly recommended him to anyone looking for a teacher. Thanks a Lot, Mr. Makki.
Mr. Makki was a great tutor for my freshman son in high school. My son is taking Algebra and was having a lot of difficulty. Mr. Makki knows Algebra well and helped my son with his homework. My son's self esteem improved and his grade went up. Mr. Makki is reasonably priced, much lower than Sylvan and Huntington. I would recommend him.
Mr. Makki has been an outstanding tutor for my sophomore girl in high school and my boy in 5th grade. He has excellent math skills and was able to break concepts down and present Geometry in a way my daughter could understand and excel. Her test grades have gone from a D to a B+ in a matter of weeks. Mr. Makki has great note taking and organization skills which helped my daughter in Biology. Mr. Makki's greatest strength is in US history. My son loved to hear his stories about visiting Presidential Libraries, Battle Fields, and other historic sites. Most times he can teach US history without the book and present history in a fun and entertaining way to my son. If you are looking for a tutor who is capable, dependable, and experienced you won't be sorry with Mr. Makki.
