About David

I believe I have a special insight into mathematics, and I get a kick out of sharing those insights with others. I have successfully communicated those insights with others while tutoring on my own. I have tutored from Algebra 1 through Calculus, as well as the SAT. Mathematics is fundamental to so many other subjects that developing a deep understanding of it can impact what one decides to study in college, as well as the field one decides to work in. My preference is to deepen someone's understanding so the student will have more confidence to explore all that is out there. However, I have also successfully taught the English/History lovers who have no interest in a deeper understanding of math. I have a whiteboard with stand, magic markers and erasers, and engage the student by solving problems before me. We interact and discuss throughout the hour. The results I achieved have been very positive.

I have a B.A. in Mathematics from Wesleyan University, scored 800 on the Math SAT, and have tutored six students with great results.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
