Get To Know Me

I have an undying passion for learning. I always have to be learning something new, which makes me particularly well suited to be a tutor and help others academically. Through the years I’ve studied math and physics (and the many other subjects I’ve pursued), I’ve worked on developing my cognitive and problem-solving skills.

I used to think there was one right way to solve a given problem. It wasn’t until I realized that there are often many equally valid approaches that I really figured out how to learn. Once I discovered all the tools I’d been acquiring were all part of the same toolbox, a whole new world of opportunity opened up to me. My goal is to impart that wisdom to my students.

I’m proud of the institutions I’ve attended and the success I’ve achieved. More importantly, though, I’m proud of the students I’ve worked with who take their academic success into their own hands and come out keener, more effectual, and more deeply understanding of the world around them.

Hi there

I’m David. Let’s see how I can help you.

Our students who worked with David saw tangible grade improvement and their parents also reported an increase in their child’s commitment and engagement to academics.

Caroline, New York, NY

David patiently worked with [my son] and successfully communicated ideas and concepts that [he] was unable to acquire during the regular school day. Perhaps more importantly he helped [my son] acquire the learning skills that would turn him into an A student in Math and Science.

Larry, New York, NY

He has expertise from Algebra through Calculus, and I would not hesitate to call on him for tutoring in these subjects if my son needed his assistance.
