About David

I am a 2011 graduate of Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey. I hold a BA in history (magna cum laude), and I am a member of Phi Beta Kappa. My final GPA of 3.98 was the result of hard work, but hard work alone did not enable my success. This was achieved while working full time in the evenings. There is no great secret that I can bestow upon potential tutees. Excellent time management, good pattern recognition, and the learned ability to discern that which is of real import all served me well in my educational quest.

To share this knowledge with others who possess a strong desire to succeed would be particularly gratifying for me. As a history major I also had major exposures to the social sciences and mathematics. I have been a ranked chess player for over fifty years, and I have successfully taught players how to play tournament-level chess. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chess

I have been an active tournament chess player for five decades. I once had a USCF rating of 1790. I have taught numerous pupils including my daughter, and they have achieved various degrees of success. Even though I no longer have the stamina to sit for six or seven hours at the board I am well versed in the basics, and I know how to teach others these concepts.
