About David

The year was 2005, and on this particular day my elementary school class was focusing on the process of long division. The teachers were receiving mixed reviews regarding the success of their instruction; while voices of approval emerged, audible frustration also scattered the room. A member of the latter group included one of my best friends, Jared. He accompanied me to a program by the name of Reach Every Able Pupil (REAP), which sought to consolidate intellectually privileged students in the district. Although I did not become acquainted with long division on my first attempt; I had grasped the foundation quickly. Upon realizing that Jared was still struggling with the concept, I offered my assistance. I am able to recall this day so vividly due to the pride associated with finding a manner in which Jared could understand and learn the principles of interest.
Eleven years later, I am in my fifth year of school at Northeastern University, and have helped fellow friends and students comprehend subjects that range from calculus, pharmacology and chemistry, to soccer and springboard diving. My current primary field of study is pharmacy; however, I am also pursuing a minor in psychology. I am perpetually in a state that compels me to learn about new topics and intriguing material, and the process of relaying this information to those around in an efficient manner has been an area of great strength. Self-perceived characteristics of my tutoring method regard patience when explaining a challenging concept, or revamping my approach so a student has the ability to the interpret the problem in a manner that will allow him/her to understand. I also LOVE Seinfeld, so if you share this affection, we will be particularly good friends. I look forward to working with you!

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.

Pharmacology

I am currently in my fifth year of pharmacy school at Northeastern University and successfully completed two semesters of pharmacology. Additionally, I have completed two semesters of therapeutics that have principles firmly rooted in pharmacology.

Soccer

I have played organized soccer since I was six years of age; including two years of varsity soccer on one of the best teams at the time in the state of Connecticut. I have also attended numerous camps throughout the years, highlighted by my visit to Carolina Soccer Camp in North Carolina. I have continued to play soccer in college on a club team, and additional leagues through the city of Boston.
