David Hacker


Math & Science ~ 6th-12th

Phoenix, AZ

Hello! My name is David Hacker. I have a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Arizona State University. After graduating in 2018, I taught chemistry and physics at the high school level for just over 3 years. I first fell in love with teaching through tutoring for friends and family in my high school and college years. Seeing the light on a student’s face as they grow in their knowledge and understanding is what I strive for. I would love to help your child find this knowledge and understanding as well as curiosity and love for the beautiful world of math and science!

Phoenix, AZ

Hello! I’m Beth Walsh. I’ve been in the education field my entire life and thoroughly enjoy working with students of all ages. I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Resource Development and have taught students of all ages from pre-k at an outdoor education school to environmental studies, social biology and earth science at Western Michigan University and Kalamazoo Valley Community College. When my family and I relocated to Colorado I began tutoring and working with special needs students, both of which I found to be extremely rewarding. I am a new transplant to Arizona and am currently a reading interventionist at an elementary school in Scottsdale. I am excited to use all my years of experience to help students build confidence and achieve their goals.
