About David

I have a Ph.D. in American History, which I love to read, research, write and teach. There’s something especially thrilling about putting the puzzle pieces of past together and then expressing it as a compelling story.

I’ve been tutoring since high school and I find it very rewarding to help students have that moment where everything “clicks.” As much as I enjoyed lecturing and leading group discussions during my time at USC, my favorite aspect of teaching is working with students one-to-one because I find it most effective in resolving difficulties and generating real understanding.

Although my greatest specialties are in history and essay writing, I’ve also done extensive tutoring in other subjects such as SAT Prep, Economics (my undergrad major), Political Science/Government, Social Studies, and English / literature, as well as helping students with college applications, study skills and test taking.

Before USC, I graduated with highest honors from NYU and spend four months traveling in South America, learning about globalization and economic development.
