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.
David tutored my daughter in calculus. He was able to take apart a problem and patiently explain it step by step. Overall, a very solid tutor!
David has been the perfect Calc AB and BC tutor for me. I'm a 40 year-old who is taking Calc to satisfy a pre-req for a graduate program. It's been 25 years since I last had Calculus, so I've needed a lot of review. David has been wonderful at discerning between what I should zero in on vs what I can cover in a more cursory manner. He's easy to schedule with and very reliable.
If anyone should have a tutor, then David is the one to refer to. David's method of teaching physics based calculus helped me appreciate how things fitted together in the natural sciences. There was never a moment of doubt or confusion in his explanations. Whenever we worked through a problem set, he would also engage himself in figuring out the answers as well. He is always ready with paper, pen, and a calculator at hand. I believe anyone who has David will appreciate his vast knowledge in either calculus or physics.
David is the first tutor I have met/used from WyzAnt and he has been nothing short of great. He is prepared, patient, and approaches problems from all different angles. If you don't understand a problem, he will continue to explain it in different ways until it clicks with you. Each time we have met, I've immediately set up the next meeting. He's very knowledgeable, easy to schedule with, and quick to respond! No complaints -- highly recommend.
Great tutor, great guy. Easy to work with and knowledgable, would certainly recommend and plan on using him again myself this coming fall.
I worked with David to help me with a summer college-level calculus class. When I signed up for WyzAnt he reached out to me right away and we met almost every day that week. He was always prompt, had a very available schedule, and most importantly, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He was great at explaining concepts and showing me how to work through problems. His tutoring really helped me excel in the class. David is a great tutor and anyone would be lucky to work with him!
David is an excellent tutor and a good fit for my daughter. He arrives on time, fully prepared, and is able to explain a variety of concepts clearly. He then allows my daughter to approach a problem on her own while offering guidance as needed. I highly recommend David.
David has proven to be an excellent tutor. He is on-time, prepared, responsive, and professional. He assessed my son's base knowledge of the pre-calc math concepts and has built upon that. David is extremely knowledgeable and is able to keep my son engaged the entire time by explaining the concepts clearly and concisely. Would highly recommend David.
David has been working with my daughter for several weeks. She has found him to be very helpful and knowledgeable. He presents the material in a way that she can understand and we would certainly highly recommend him.
David is so much help with my philosophy. He helps me understand difficult philosophic concepts and structure my essays for a top grade - Thanks David
I was under exam pressure and needed someone to help me learn a large volume of information quickly and effectively. Feeling quite overwhelmed and frankly, desperate, I reached out to David. He has a talent of explaining information in an easy to understand and concise way. I look forward to working with him again!
Great tutor, shows effort to help out. Thanks for the Calculus session. I will be using your help on other subjects in the near future. Thank you again.
David is a very good tutor. I have a much stronger grasp of business statistics after meeting with him. He was able to explain the concepts clearly and help me work through the problems.
The tutor is very knowledgeable and patient and is familiar with many different types of questions on the subject matter.
So far I've been with David for some time and he has always been on top of things to make sure that I know it well. I am very pleased with his tutoring skills. Highly recommended.
David has been teaching my son, a senior in high school, calculus. David is super smart, a great teacher, very kind, and also super reliable. We could not imagine anyone better.
David is great!! He was super helpful in preparing me for my calculus placement exam. He is a great teacher and would recommend him to anyone. He is patient, clear, and knowledgeable.
Had a great time working with David as my tutor for university level math. He was able to thoroughly explain all of my questions and was very quick to return emails. Also, when I needed his help but we couldn't meet face to face, he kindly provided explanations over email. Couldn't have asked for better guidance!
David has been tutoring my son in 9th grade algebra and some grammar. He is very knowledgeable, reliable, and patient, and he has helped my son considerably. I would highly recommend him.
David provided me with a slow, clear, and understandable way of learning calculus-based physics. I feel as though I could relate to the material now more than ever. The tutor was very patient and provided me with an excellent comprehensive review of the material I needed to study.
My daughter's first meeting with David was very successful. David seems efficient and very knowledgeable. We are looking forward to working with him.
David does a superb job of explaining tough topics in math (and other areas) & of supporting students in developing their strategies to master material. He is patient, supportive, and professional. Always punctual and flexible with scheduling. A great tutor!
David is reliable and very prepared at all tutoring sessions. My son has gotten two As on his tests, and I thought finite math was going to be very difficult for him, but David has made it easy!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Liked him a lot, easy to reach, went fast and helped me understand math. He was patient and let me ask questions.
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!
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!
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!
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!!!
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.
David really helped me understand everything I was learning in my statistics class. Highly recommend.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A good connection with my son. After just 1 session, my son stated, "I look at math in a whole new way".
