I’m David! I received my M.S.Ed. in teaching from Northwestern University and my J.D. from New York University. I have over 20 years of experience teaching in the classroom and tutoring individual students, including over a decade of helping students succeed on the LSAT and GRE. Unlike many of the big test prep companies, I am trained and able to completely personalize your LSAT or GRE program to your needs. I am also trained and experienced in adapting my teaching methods to your strengths. I will also you the tools you need to master what challenges you about the exam you’re taking. In addition to my expertise, I will provide you with a supportive – yet challenging – learning environment.

Each student takes a diagnostic test before we start working together. I use the results to develop a personalized curriculum for him or her.

I received a 176 on the LSAT and scored in the 99th percentile on both sections of the GRE. I worked for Kaplan Test Prep for over 10 years before attending law school. I helped hundreds of students reach or exceed their target scores, including several who became classmates of mine at NYU! Working for Kaplan taught me a lot about test prep, but I am a much better tutor now that I can apply what I learned from my teaching training about the best pedagogical practices.

I would welcome the opportunity to help you succeed on your exam!

Developed different strategies

David showed me new ways of tackling LR questions. He takes a look at your approach and tries to find ways to help build on your skills. Looking forward to applying these techniques.

Knowledgeable and efficient tutor

David breaks down each type of question on the LR section in a way that is comprehensible to anyone. I have been consistently improving on my LR section because of the way David teaches each type of question.
