Testimonial:

David is a wonderful tutor. Mathematics has always been my weakest skill and I was signed up to take the GRE, and had a month to study. David is extremely knowledgeable and very articulate. I was easily and quickly able to understand the concepts that I had previously struggled to comprehend. David was very patient with both my lack of knowledge and comprehension in the field, which allowed me to quickly pick up on the mathematical concepts that I needed to know for the test. David offered many methods for both learning and recalling the material, which was particularly helpful for the GRE. Working with him was a pleasure and each meeting was both informative and enjoyable. I was surprisingly pleased with my score, and would not have been able to succeed without David’s help.

David’s subjects

ACT Math

I have recently helped several students prepare for their ACT. These students were able to make particularly good progress with the Math and Science parts (they were already doing well with the other parts). I teach mathematics at Bunker Hill Community College and online at Southern New Hampshire University.

I love to see students make progress!

ACT Science

I have tutored ACT Science, and every student I worked with found the experience helpful.

ACT Science is a bit different from some of the other tests, and requires putting things together from different places, and making comparisons between different experiments that some students find challenging. I can work with students to help break some of the questions down into simpler pieces, show how some questions can be answered looking only at one experiment, and how to combine the experiments mentally to better answer the comparison questions.

Algebra 1

I've worked with 5 Algebra 1 students over the past twelve months, all of whom have made significant improvements.

I'm currently teaching at Bunker Hill Community College. I have an MS in mathematics from Tufts University, and hold a current Massachusetts Secondary teaching certification in mathematics. I'm a member of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Algebra 2

I've worked with 6 Algebra 2 students over the past twelve months, all of whom have made significant improvements.

I'm currently teaching at Bunker Hill Community College. I have an MS in mathematics from Tufts University, and hold a current Massachusetts Secondary teaching certification in mathematics. I'm a member of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Biostatistics

I have taught statistics at Quincy College in Massachusetts, and have tutored statistics to high school students, including AP Statistics and college students.

Calculus

I've tutored high school students in AP Calculus (AB and BC) and in honors calculus, and I've also tutored college students in first and second year calculus. All of these students have made good progress.

I'm currently an adjunct faculty member in mathematics at Bunker Hill Community College, and a member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Discrete Math

I have taught Discrete Mathematics at a University (online).

Finite Math

I have taught finite mathematics at a University (online) and College.

Geometry

I've helped students in both Honors and College Prep geometry, including geometric transformation-based courses. Students in both proof-oriented and numerical-results-oriented geometry courses have made good progress working with me.

I'm a mathematics adjunct faculty member at Bunker Hill Community College, and a member of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

GMAT

My score on the GMAT was 740 (out of 800) which is in the 97th percentile.

I am currently teaching mathematics at Bunker Hill Community College, and have been tutoring extensively for the past three years.

GRE

I have helped a student with intensive tutoring on the math ("Quantitative") part of her GRE - she was very pleased that her score improved and she was admitted to her choice of graduate school. I have also tutored the Verbal part of the exam. I am quite familiar with the exam, and personally scored 800 on both parts when I took the GRE in 2011.

Linear Algebra

I have successfully tutored Linear Algebra to two Boston University students and an MIT student.
In addition to tutoring students taking elementary and advanced Linear Algebra courses, I have also worked in the CADCAM industry that used matrices for transformations of geometric objects.

Physics

I've previously taught high school physics for four years. I've tutored AP Physics B and C, Honors Physics, College Prep Physics, and Conceptual Physics for high school students. I've also tutored first year physics for college students.

I am a member of American Association of Physics Teachers. I have a current Massachusetts teacher certification for Secondary Physics.

Prealgebra

I have taught Prealgebra topics to 7th and 8th graders, and also to adults. In particular, I have developed some techniques of teaching signed numbers by working with IOUs that many students have found helpful.

Precalculus

I've worked with 4 Precalculus students over the past twelve months, all of whom have made significant improvements.

SAT Math

I have tutored students in SAT math level 1 and level 2 subject tests, and the students have made good progress. I can help with both math content and test-taking strategies for these particular tests.

Statistics

I've tutored high school students in AP Statistics and college preparatory statistics, and I've also tutored college students in Statistics. I've also taught Statistics at Quincy College.

I'm currently an adjunct faculty member in mathematics at Bunker Hill Community College, and a member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Hands down the best! I highly recommend David as a tutor. To say he is an excellent teacher is an understatement. Not only does he make learning difficult material fun he is able to effectively communicate advanced subjects with ease. I thoroughly enjoyed David's help throughout my semester long statistics course & he was always willing to help. After a few sessions with David I felt my confidence level rise and I wa ...
