About Davis

I started tutoring as early as middle school, and have always enjoyed helping others learn. While I have experience tutoring everything from Spanish to computer science, my favorite thing to help people with are standardized tests like the SAT and GMAT, as it's incredible how much progress can be made on such tests with just a little bit of instruction, and such tests play a huge role in determining what people end up doing in life!

I try to approach tutoring from a principles first perspective - I focus on teaching people the fundamentals of how to approach a given type of problem, rather than just showing people how to get the answer to the specific problem at hand. In other words, I like to "nudge" you to an answer, giving you just enough help to ensure that you are making progress, but never so much that you aren't learning. I also try to make tutoring sessions as light hearted and enjoyable as possible, so that you have a good time as you learn!

To give you some background about me, I am from Austin, Texas and went to college at Duke, where I double majored in electrical engineering and computer science. I graduated #1 in my class in both high school and college, and I currently work at Google. I love animals, exercise, non-fiction reading, and cooking, and I also really like meeting new people.
