About David

My educational background is as follows: I finished my undergraduate degree from Amherst College, 1985; majored in economics with concentration in math.

I have Master's degrees from MIT (Business administration) in 1987 and Rensselaer Hartford (Computer science and engineering) in 1992. I've also taken courses more recently in Psychology, Biology, and Medical Interpreting, so I know what it's like to be a student.

I had a 28 year career in finance before retiring at the end of 2015. I worked extensively in securities analysis in the fixed income (bond) market, where I specialized in mortgage-backed securities. I have a lot of experience applying math to problems in finance. Since retiring, I have worked as a substitute teacher, mainly at high schools in the Hartford area, and with primary emphasis in mathematics.

I have taken and passed the Praxis II exam for Grades 7-12 math. I have also worked as a substitute teacher, mainly in the Meriden high schools -- but also other districts -- in a variety of math courses, including stats, algebra 2, and geometry / trig. I am familiar as well with linear algebra and calculus, but occasionally refer to texts and notes when helping students with certain types of integration in calculus and with differential equations.

Very Impressed with David!

We've only had one lesson but I'm very impressed so far. David was very patient with my 17-year-old son who is behind in math and was able to explain to him some much needed foundation. David was easy to communicate with and answered all questions and emails very quickly. He went over and above and stayed a little later to make sure that my son felt comfortable with his homework assignments--an
