"Very sharp, efficient, reliable, and a great teacher."
Eric from Barrington, RI on 5/9/13
By far a life saver when it came to Economic Statistics for Business and Economic Majors (Boston University). He is up to date with the latest technology, Excel 2011- knows how to do syntaxes and formulas using Excel for HW assignments, and any question I had regarding the use of the TI 83plus Calculator regarding Statistics tests, distributions, or variable statistics was easily answered. He truly has a passion for mathematics, but is also just a brilliant tutor who loves helping students. I am more than lucky to have had the experience working with David. He is a Princeton University graduate, a Brown University Masters graduate, and PhD in Mathematics and statistics. He is by far one of the smartest people I have ever met in my life, and if you ever have the opportunity to work with him then you are one of the lucky ones too. We would meet at the Brown library which made for a great studying environment, and his commitment to teaching me the most efficient and useful way to learn the material is what I loved most about him. I could flip to any page in my text book and he could just "crush" problems left and right.
Before David started tutoring me, I would feel sick about the thought of Economic Statistics, but he helped me build the confidence I needed to look at any problem and determine the best method to solving it. It's weird to say, but I actually ended up liking statistics by the second Mid term because I scored well above the average in the class. The payoff is definitely worth the investment.
If I ever needed to change our meeting time, or needed a last minute session before the exam, I could easily text him, or email and he would respond very shortly after. He is the type of teacher than change your whole perspective on a subject, even beyond mathematics (philosophy, chemistry, biology). In the future as long as he is still available, I will definitely be contacting him for any sort of help I may need in my studies. Thanks David, I really appreciate your service.
"Best calculus tutor!!"
Isabel from Astoria, NY on 2/24/14
David is by far the best tutor that I have encountered. With other tutors, there was always something missing, and my lessons never felt quite satisfactory enough, but David's lesson gave me a deep understanding of the problems with which I was having difficulty, because he is a real educator with a full grasp of the subject, and is able to explain concepts step by step, as well as anticipate all the problems that might arise when the student is learning them. He was kind, patient, and worked in sync with me. The lesson went smoothly, and he answered every single one of my questions. There is no better tutor than David.
Selin from Washington, DC on 12/23/13
David helped me with a college Linear Algebra course. He was very knowledgeable on the subject and extremely thorough and patient. He was always ready to explain a problem to me from different perspectives and make sure I understood every detail. I had no trouble setting up weekly sessions because he was always ready to accommodate my schedule. I highly recommend David to anyone who needs help with a class.
"Great tutor and very accessible."
Neta from New York, NY on 12/2/13
I have only had one session so far with David, but even from this 1 hour he sat with me I could feel that he is very confident about the material, and knew all the formulas right away. He is very nice and calm and comfortable to be with. I would love to recommend him as a tutor for statistics to everyone.
Nina from New York, NY on 12/2/13
David is a great tutor. He is very smart and is on point with everything he is teaching you. He also can explain the subject matter (Math) in different ways which is really helpful.
"Best Tutor Ever!"
Margaret from Rockaway Park, NY on 11/27/13
David was such an amazing tutor. He works with you and breaks down everything so that you can understand it. He makes every problem seem simple and is really great at helping you see your mistakes. (Not to mention he's a genius). I highly recommend him.
"very patient and calm"
Eileen from Boulder, CO on 11/22/13
I loved working with David. He was fabulous at breaking down the material for me, when my professor wasn't able to do so. He was quite patient, and took his time to work different angles when I was stuck with my work, and the concepts in front of me. I would gladly and assuredly recommend him as a math tutor.
Lauren from New York, NY on 11/17/13
Very helpful! David is an awesome tutor and teaches topics starting from the basics. He goes very slow to make sure you know the material!
"Great tutor and worth the investment!!"
Benjamin from New York, NY on 11/12/13
Besides being incredibly bright yet humble, David is very patient and a pleasure to work with. He is great at coming up with examples to break down otherwise confusing material. He is also extremely thoughtful and proactive about helping you achieve your academic goals/pursuits. I'd highly recommend his services if you need some extra help in a math course, or preparation for a standardized exam.
"David shows results."
Paul from New York, NY on 11/10/13
My son was having difficulty with his High School Honors Physics class. David was an outstanding find. David has been patient and supportive while taking my son through very difficult concepts. David is thoughtful and takes the time to thoroughly explain each step of the problem solving process. My son's grades have been much improved since David's been on board.
Sonia from New York, NY on 9/30/13
We screened and had sessions with several tutors before choosing David. We are extremely happy with our choice. David tutors my 16-year old son in 11th grade physics. My son is focused and excited about the subject. His weekly sessions with David are keeping him very motivated.
Jackie from Riverside, RI on 8/21/13
David has been helping my daughter review math for her SATs. He is very knowledgeable and patient and has helped her understand and improve her score.
Erika from Providence, RI on 8/14/13
David is a wonderful tutor. He was very patient with me. I'm not very good in math and he took the time to explain everything to me. He was very easy to get in contact with and that was a plus for me. Overall he is a great tutor who knows his stuff. I ended up getting a B in the class.
Elise from East Greenwich, RI on 8/1/13
I contacted David for help with the second half of my Calculus 2 class I was taking over the summer. Working so much and it being an accelerated course left me behind in some of the sections and actually in trouble of not passing but he was able to help me with it all! He simplified everything down no matter how complicated the problem while still explaining the subject thoroughly and making it SO much easier. I'd say he went above and beyond what he needed to do. He explained the background of a subject before actually talking about it and explaining how to do the problems so not only did I get a better understanding of how to do a problem, but also why. He went over tons of problems with me and did them out so I could see how they were done before I practiced some on my own which was awesome. Also very flexible hours and was willing to work as many times as I needed. Passed the class with a B- with his help which I couldn't have done on my own in the place I was in! Thank you again!
Matt from Providence, RI on 7/22/13
Liked him a lot, easy to reach, went fast and helped me understand math. He was patient and let me ask questions.
"Great, helpful tutor! "
Elizabeth from Warwick, RI on 6/10/13
I began working with David when I was having some trouble in physics, and with his help I successfully earned A's on tests after I worked with him (prior I had been averaging B's). He has also been very helpful in tutoring me for the AP stats exam and the ACT both of which he is very well versed on. Overall, he is a great tutor, the best I have had, and is knowledgeable and able to help in a wide range of subjects! I would definitely recommend him!
"Great tutor! "
Anthony from Providence, RI on 5/17/13
David was flexible to my schedule and explained very difficult subject matter (advanced statistics) from the ground up.He explained it in such a way that mostly anyone could grasp the work. Good Job!
Maria from Johnston, RI on 5/9/13
I had David as a tutor for Calc 1 in college. I am not good at math AT ALL, but this tutor helped me a lot. David is a very smart and excellent tutor. He was always willing to make sessions and he is very flexible with his hours. He is also very easy to contact and he always answers quickly. Just make sure you have an agenda or some problems you want to go over when you plan a session. He explains things very well and will go over something until you understand. He is also very patient and willing to keep going over something if you don't get it. I highly recommend David for anyone needing help in math!
"The best calculus tutor, literally the best!!!"
Rakan from Providence, RI on 4/20/13
I needed some help in my college course Calculus III, and he was more than great. We solve all problems together in many different ways, and as Calculus III requires good imagination as it's a multivariable calculus, he was really helpful to grasp the concepts of all topics and not just memorize formulas!! Finally, English is my second langage, but that was not barrier at all as in our lessons we go in each problem step by step!!!
"A good teacher"
Hardie from North Kingstown, RI on 4/11/13
David helped me with my MBA Probability and Statistics practice questions, and I learned a lot from him. I went to our meetings with the textbook practice questions and things I couldn't figure out, and he helped. We only moved on once I got it, and sometimes we finished early, but I always learned what was on my list.
Emily from Providence, RI on 4/1/13
David really helped me understand everything I was learning in my statistics class. Highly recommend.
Alexander from Providence, RI on 3/10/13
You can easily tell that David has a great deal of experience in mathematics. I used his help for Statistics and it greatly improved my overall confidence, performance and understanding of the subject. I would certainly recommend David for your tutoring needs.
"Always finds the best way to explain the principles of algebra."
Kate from Seekonk, MA on 3/9/13
David is a very patient and calm tutor who is persistent in transferring his math knowledge to my daughter. If my daughter doesn't understand the information he is presenting to her, David finds another way for her to understand this information. My daughter looks forward to her tutoring session and she says David has quite the sense of humor, which always helps!
"Superb Tutor! Very Accessible."
Diane from Providence, RI on 2/28/13
I cannot say enough good things about David's effectiveness as a tutor! He is extremely knowledgeable across all disciplines but especially in math and physics. David works patiently with a student to help her/him gain mastery of difficult topics and achieve higher grades. David's patient style of tutoring helps to reduce a student's stress and engender confidence.
Both parent and student will be so happy with the results!
Jason from Cranston, RI on 10/11/12
David is an amazing tutor. He helped me with a physics class and he was awesome. He was great at explaining the problems and he made everything very easy to understand and follow. I walked away from every lesson feeling confident with the material. He will make sure you get the right answers and understand the process. David is also a great guy and is easy to get in contact with. Awesome guy and awesome tutor, I'm really glad I was able to have him as a tutor.
"Great tutor who gets results"
Peg from Providence, RI on 8/24/12
I had never hired a tutor for any of my kids until my 17 yr old daughter was struggling in AP chemistry and was beginning to hate a subject that she had really enjoyed. She was hesitant about it, but David made her immediately feel comfortable. From the first session I saw her confidence grow as she came to understand the material better. She was so impressed with David's knowledge, telling me "this guy knows everything!" With his help she was able to bring her grade from a low C to a high B and started loving chemistry again! My daughter is taking 3 AP science and math courses next year and I won't hesitate to call David again if she needs help.
"After one session, my daughter knew this would be helpful"
Wendy from Providence, RI on 6/12/12
My daughter had worked with another tutor and had persisted with the tutor even though she had some doubts about the effectiveness of the sessions.
After one session with David, she knew that he would be very helpful to her and felt so relieved to be spending her time working with him.
She went in to her SAT test more relaxed and more confident because of working with David.
"An overall great tutor"
Sh-ron from Providence, RI on 5/11/12
From beginning to end, David has proven himself as a patient, helpful, and understanding tutor. From March to May, I have a better comprehension of Math 1420 than before. Words can't describe how much of an excellent job David has done with helping me with problems I was dealing with and guiding me to practice harder.
I strongly recommend David to anyone who needs help on difficult math problems.
Yongsong from Barrington, RI on 3/21/12
David has been doing a great job for my daughter. She loves his style of tutoring and feeling much more confident in SAT testing after two months of weekly tutoring.
Edward from Providence, RI on 2/26/12
I was greatly distressed due to the incomprehensible projects and tests questions of Econometrics due to an inexperienced and inapt professor. But after working a few sessions side by side with David, I was able to tackle various topics that have confused me in the past. He is patient and is able to explain difficult concepts in simple terms. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of some help in math related topics.
"EXCELLENT!!! Great tutor!!!"
Matt from North Attleboro, MA on 1/10/12
If you are contemplating giving Dave a shout to set up an appointment for some tutoring, don't hesitate. I have tried a few different tutors on WyzAnt and other places, and he was by far the best, hands down. I cannot think of enough good things to say about him as a tutor. He is extremely easy to get a hold of, and always seems to make room on his schedule. He is extremely patient, and genuinely cares that I am understanding the material. I was getting tutored in Trig, and at a few points was having tremendous difficulty with the way the book was presenting the material, so Dave explained it in an alternative manner which was much easier to comprehend. I would absolutely recommend Dave to anyone who needs help with their studies. My only regret is that I did not contact him sooner.
Brittany from Warwick, RI on 12/7/11
David worked with me on many problems for my take home test and took his time to explain all the different types of problems. I learned a lot from this experience.
"First session with David went really well"
Kristine from Foxboro, MA on 9/29/11
A good connection with my son. After just 1 session, my son stated, "I look at math in a whole new way".
