In October of 2016, WyzAnt selected me as 1 of 100 of their top tutors for a select program. Additionally, I was nationally ranked online for multiple History subjects on Wyzant during the week of October 28, 2016, fluctuating between the national rankings.

Only the top ten tutors in the country are nationally ranked at any particular time on the first page of the Wyzant online ranking system. I have also been ranked #1 within a 40-mile radius in the OC/LA County area for History. I'm also a trusted tutor for students at top public and private college preparatory schools, and I can provide references for lessons conducted with students at such schools as The Harvard-Westlake School, Polytechnic School, and Troy High School.

My journey to becoming a tutor in History began at CSUSB as an undergraduate student and president of the History Honor Society, I helped students improve in American, European, and World History. At CSUSB, I was recognized for my many efforts when I was awarded the "2012 Outstanding Student Leader Award" — the highest leadership award a student can receive. I have also been recognized for academic excellence in History by receiving numerous academic scholarships and awards. These achievements include earning the 4.0 GPA Consecutive Dean's List Award, History Service Award and Dean's List from 2010-2012. In 2015, I attended the University of Pennsylvania where I studied economic history culminating in a certification from the Aresty Institute.

My daughter says that David is great! He has prepared slides that he reviews with her and then goes through practice Qs. She found it very helpful in helping her prepare for what is taught in class. She said David knows the material really well and has a great teaching style.
