I'm an experienced teacher and tutor with 100+ testimonials, 650+ reviews and 2500 hours spent tutoring college math, physics, chemistry and other subjects through Wyzant.
I love learning and I love to share it with students but I also think getting improved results is important so I know when and how to teach strategically. I believe in building a strong rapport with students by discovering your interests and incorporating them into lessons. I think that the more personal a tutoring session can be, the better.
I have extensive teaching experience. I have taught advanced math (number theory, vector calculus, linear algebra) and elective classes (philosophy) at a prestigious private school in Providence, RI so I have a lot of experience with high achieving high school students.
I have also taught at two gifted youth programs: Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth (CTY) and Duke University's Talent Identification Program (TIP) so I know how to get the best out of middle and high school aged students.
In addition to this, I have also taught many classes while pursuing my graduate degrees at both Brown and Virginia Tech, primarily introductory classes in moral and political philosophy to college underclassmen.
My personal educational background is quite broad. I began my American college career as a math major at Princeton University after spending a year studying mathematics at Imperial College, London--an MIT type institution--in the UK. I achieved perfect scores on my A-levels--UK college entrance exams--in mathematics, further mathematics, physics and chemistry and a perfect score on my SAT. I also spent some time as a high schooler studying mathematics at Cambridge University. I know many people find math and science challenging and sometimes boring but I have a lot of experience in making it fun and exciting!
I'm very comfortable tutoring any topic in mathematics, physics or chemistry. Please contact me if you'd like to work with me to improve your performance in these areas.
I finished my degree at Princeton in 2006 majoring in Politics specializing in Political Theory and American Politics so I'm very well equipped to tutor social studies and history along with related fields. I also took many classes in English at college so I can work with students in that area too.
After completing my undergraduate studies, I obtained a Masters degree in philosophy from Virginia Tech in 2009 and until recently was working on my PhD in philosophy at Brown University in Providence, RI. If you have an interest in philosophy (either inside or outside of the classroom) or anything related to it (like debate for example), I'd also be happy to work with you on this. Philosophy teaches clear and concise thinking and writing so I can provide guidance on writing as well as argumentation.
My own test scores are as follows:
GRE: Math - 790, 92nd percentile, Verbal - 660, 94th percentile, Writing - 6.0, 97th percentile
SAT: Math - 800, 99th percentile, Verbal - 800, 99th percentile--Perfect 1600 Score
SAT II: Math IC - 800, 99th percentile, Math IIC - 800, 91st percentile, Physics - 780, 90th percentile
A-levels, UK college entrance exams - Mathematics - A, Further Mathematics - A, Physics - A, Chemistry - A--Perfect Scores
Please contact me so we can develop a plan for you to meet your educational goals. I look forward to getting to know you. I'd be happy to send my resume if requested. I'm an experienced teacher and tutor with 100+ testimonials, 650+ reviews and 2500 hours spent tutoring college math, physics, chemistry and other subjects through Wyzant.

By far a life saver when it came to Economic Statistics for Business and Economic Majors (Boston University). He is up to date with the latest technology, Excel 2011- knows how to do syntaxes and formulas using Excel for HW assignments, and any question I had regarding the use of the TI 83plus Calculator regarding Statistics tests, distributions, or variable statistics was easily answered. He truly has a passion for mathematics, but is also just a brilliant tutor who loves helping students. I am more than lucky to have had the experience working with David. He is a Princeton University graduate, a Brown University Masters graduate, and PhD in Mathematics and statistics. He is by far one of the smartest people I have ever met in my life, and if you ever have the opportunity to work with him then you are one of the lucky ones too. We would meet at the Brown library which made for a great studying environment, and his commitment to teaching me the most efficient and useful way to learn the material is what I loved most about him. I could flip to any page in my text book and he could just "crush" problems left and right.
Before David started tutoring me, I would feel sick about the thought of Economic Statistics, but he helped me build the confidence I needed to look at any problem and determine the best method to solving it. It's weird to say, but I actually ended up liking statistics by the second Mid term because I scored well above the average in the class. The payoff is definitely worth the investment.
If I ever needed to change our meeting time, or needed a last minute session before the exam, I could easily text him, or email and he would respond very shortly after. He is the type of teacher than change your whole perspective on a subject, even beyond mathematics (philosophy, chemistry, biology). In the future as long as he is still available, I will definitely be contacting him for any sort of help I may need in my studies. Thanks David, I really appreciate your service.
David is a great tutor and certainly knows his material. He tutored me for my university level linear algebra class and I improved drastically. He can be hard to schedule sometimes but our sessions were always time well spent. He is good at explaining things very clearly and will tell you he is not sure if he doesn't know something rather than just guess. All in all. Great tutor. well worth the rate.
David was one of the best tutors i've had! Always available to make an appointment on your schedule and very patient as well. Will go over problems as many times as you need until you understand it; he taught me more tricks than my calculus professor! Would definitely recommend to a friend.
Daivd is an excellent tutor. He is very patient and really helped me find new methods for problem solving that made my class much easier. He understands the coursework and is able to anticipate the tools and skills that I will need on my exam. I have become more confident in Math and have made improvement in only a few weeks.
David is there to help you with whatever you want to learn. He lets you decide how the lesson goes, if you want. Also, he is very knowledgable and good at explaining concepts. He's great!
David covered many topics and several chapters of college Linear Algebra material at ease. He was so helpful and very knowledgeable. He booked on short notice, and even made himself available at holiday time. He was very prompt in replying about times etc. Highly recommend!
He spoke clearly and made learning statistics more enjoyable. Passed my last exam because of him! He's punctual and meets at your convenience.
David is very knowledgeable and very versatile. He helps me with both chemistry and calculus and is patient and always thorough in his explanations.
After only the first lesson, David changed my daughter's attitude for multivariable calculus from "I'm stupid" to "it's easy". Can't emphasize how important it is to have a great teacher and David is definitely one of them.
When I first met with David I was completely lost and did not have a basic comprehension of the calculus principles. Within one session I felt caught up with my class and had a much more positive attitude towards the subject. He was incredibly patient and helped me to work through problems that were a struggle for me. He was easy to reach and easy to make tutoring plans with. I highly recommend him as a tutor!
Very knowledgeable and patient. Explains everything very thoroughly and very well. Helped me become much more confident regarding physics and math.
I've had a few tutors over the past year and none of them compare to David. He saved me on my multivariable calculus class where I was sure there was no way I would pass , but by meeting with David a couple of times I was able to score a 93/100 on my test. David is very patient and makes sure his student understands each topic and/or exercise before continuing, he makes everything seem a lot easier. I feel way more prepared for my tests and exams now, and really wish I had found David sooner!
I am taking upper level math courses in college and have been getting assistance from David. He has been extremely helpful in understanding the coursework and has taught me a number of useful tricks. He has become an essential supplement to my classes. David has been able to help me see how my professors want me to work through problems and give tips on how to best handle problems on my own during tests.
David has been helping me with my linear algebra homework, and he has been preparing me for my quizzes and midterms. I came in not understanding a single concept, and David has helped me to learn the basic concepts to create a good foundation of linear algebra, and now he is simplifying the more complex concepts in a way that I can understand. He has helped me so much, and it's easy to say that my grade is already improving even with a few weeks of his help.
Very helpful and easy to work and communicate with. Very recommended, helped me work through problems and prepare for my calculus midterm. Highly recommended!
David's tutoring provides an important complement to my son's NYC ongoing school experience. As his CV illustrates, David possesses an impressive academic pedigree and deep and broad knowledge of math and science. What you cannot see on his CV, is that he is warm, patient, flexible, engaging and able to explain complex subject matter in a variety of ways to ensure my son grasps the key points and is able to solve problems and explain his work independently. On any given visit to our time he is able to work through Algebra II and or Chemistry topics as directed by my son. I would recommend David without reservation.
David is an excellent tutor and teaches better than nearly any professor I have ever had. His method is consistent and has helped me a lot. David is patient and organized, and extremely meticulous in his explanations. Before teaching any new topic, David will always explain why it is useful and where it is found or used, which many teachers fail to explain. He answers all questions very clearly and makes sure you, as his student, learn thoroughly every topic you cover together.
David has helped me so much with my college Calculus II class. I went to him after getting a 54/100 on my first exam, and after seeing him weekly for a couple of months, I finished first in my class with a 96/100 in my final.
David helped me prepare for my college math final. I scored in the A range on the exam. Without David's help i doubt i could have even passed. David is very knowledgable and informative and very effective at teaching and tutoring the material!
Would definitely use again!
In my first semester at Columbia, I found Linear Algebra to be the hardest subject. I was in a tough position because I had never taken this subject or the suggested prerequisite subjects leading up to it. Despite my best efforts to understand the material on my own, I realized that I will need someone to simplify the material and explain it at its very basic level before I can build up a fuller understanding and appreciation for the subject.
In just over a month of tutoring, David did that for me when he tutored me for my final exam, which was worth 50% of the grade. He absolutely saved my semester! I felt like I went from someone who was destined for an F to become somewhat of a little expert and one of the top performers of my class; and I fully earned my B grade at the end of the semester. He not only helped with Linear Algebra, but also with all the relevant trigonometry and calculus (including complex numbers) that came along as applications of the material. I only wish I found David sooner! Also, if you are like me and hate asking elementary questions that show your lack of understanding, don't worry because David is very patient and will spend the time to explain the point until you get a good handle on it. All in all, a fantastic tutor!
David is extremely knowledgeable and was able to help me work through concepts that I found difficult. He showed me alternative approaches to problems I never thought I would understand. He not only is a great tutor but is kind to his students and uses patience to make sure that the topic is understood before moving on and goes above and beyond to be a great tutor. Highly Recommended
Patient, wise, and thorough. No better tutor to help you boost your grades and also provide a real understanding of the material.
He did a great job teaching me Econometrics, which is a very difficult field to find good tutoring in. He also responds to initial email requests very punctually. I would recommend him to anyone.
David is great. I've only been seeing him for a few weeks and he's been able to explain chemistry concepts to me that have left me completely lost in two hours. Without him I'm almost positive that I wouldn't have been able to get as good a grade as I did on my last midterm. During our sessions he's even gone above and beyond to answer questions that are not fully explained in the text book. With his help I've even been able to gain an interest in the subject. Highly recommended.
I had a great session with David. Very knowledgeable and explains topics very well. Helped me a lot for my test and felt very prepared after working with David for one session.
David was very great and clear with helping me in my work in linear algebra. Explains everything very well. Highly recommended.
I've been seeing David on a regular basis and he is always fantastic. He's so good at explaining concepts that I missed in class and helps me do my own work as he works beside me to help make sure I get the details down.
I was struggling in calculus 1 and Mr. M was able to help me catch up to the class in only a few sessions. He is excellent at explaining and helping me understand concepts that I struggled with previously. He is fairly flexible with his schedule. We meet for three hours a week, and he was able to meet with me outside of his regular hours the morning before a midterm, which was extremely helpful. Overall, a great teacher.
David could not have been any more helpful, even though I ambushed him with a hectic situation (finally reaching out for help...a week before my midterm). He was patient, understanding, and insightful the whole time we worked together. From the get-go, he was quick to assess and acclimate himself with the material I'd been working on in the first half of the semester, so we were able to jump right into the tutoring without wasting any time. With far more clarity than any textbook, David was able to break down the large concepts I had been previously unable to understand, drawing helpful analogies and paring away overwhelming amounts of course material into a manageable amount of information. In addition to all that, he's also prompt in responding, accommodating to crazy schedules, and punctual to every session. I'm not being hyperbolic when I say that David is pretty much the reason I'm not failing my class, and I really couldn't recommend him enough.
David helped me understand concepts I've been struggling with for months in just an hour. He seems very adaptable to questions from all different angles, and additionally is patient when something needs to be explained in different ways. I highly recommend him.
David is an outstanding math tutor who clearly explains difficult math concepts in an easy to understand and patient way. I highly recommend him.
David is smart, kind, and excellent at explaining things. My daughter has only been working with him for a few weeks but so far she finds him very clear and is understanding things she didn't in class.
David is a great tutor who charges a very fair price. He has been immensely helpful with my college calculus class. He has a clear and broad understanding of every topic that I have needed help with. I would recommend his services to anyone in need of a calculus tutor!
David is a great tutor overall. He has a flexible time schedule and meets in a comfortable studying location. He explains problems thoroughly and repeats if you need help. I was struggling with physics and David did a great job in explaining and helping. I recommend him to anyone.
David M. does a very good job of making complex math look simple by providing simple explanations and a simple way of doing things. I recommend him to anyone interested in the topics he covers.
Very professional and patient and willing to explain everything until you understand it. Always on time, and extremely thorough when explaining the questions and methods.
David is an excellent tutor. He was able to answer all my questions and offer additional information about the subject area. It was a pleasure working with him and I plan to continue. Highly recommended!
I have now had 3 tutor lessons with David and they have all been of tremendous help. I was struggling with my Calculus course at university and with David, I was able to catch up with all the work that I had missed. He is very patient and will not hesitate on going over a topic several times until completely understood. He is also very punctual, flexible and amicable, a great tutor throughout!
We signed David on to help prepare our daughter for the SAT Math II subject test. David is a terrific Math tutor; knowledgeable, patient and explains the subject matter well. He also is accommodating in setting up appointments that fit into my daughter's very busy schedule. We've been very pleased with him.
Very patient, never interrupts. Always works with your speed and very patient. Explains detail by detail. Great tutor. Definitely recommend.
So far I've only had two meetings with David, but I'm already noticing improvements in my work and finding it easier to understand things I had problems with previously. David is very patient and understanding and thoroughly goes through every aspect of the problem with me, making sure that everything is clear to me. I was having some difficulties working through certain aspects of Calculus 1 and was feeling very anxious about this, but David managed to really help me out with everything that I had issues with. All in all, I am very happy with our sessions and would definitely recommend him to my friends and others!
David is definitely one of my favorite tutors so far as I've tried quite a few during my school years. He explains the difficult math in a very clear way and always shows good examples. He usually begins from the basics, which makes it very easy to understand the idea. I definitely recommend him.
I really enjoy my time with David. He is exceptionally smart and knows his subject matter and breaks it down for me so that I understand it. The time goes so quickly. It has become one of the highlights of my week.
I've had two meetings with David so far, and he's already helped me understand physics so much better! I really look forward to the clarification I get from our sessions each week, and honestly don't know how I could get through this course without him! I have a college physics teacher who unfortunately does not teach well, but David has really come to the rescue and helps explain key ways to approach various problems. I highly recommend David as a physics tutor, as he is very patient, intelligent, and knows how to explain things in easily understandable ways.
Our 10th grade son started working with David for help with math and physics this year. David has been been prompt, warm and patient breaking concepts down into manageable bites with explanations that seem to stick with our son. We hope this will help build a solid foundation for the year!
I took about 4 sessions with David so far and will continue to take sessions for the rest of the semester. David has various strategies to attack math problems. He is very easy to communicate with and adjust/add meeting times. He usually replies to his email within few hours. He is very patient and walks you through the problems step by step. if you need help with math I strongly recommend David.
David tutored my daughter in calculus. He was able to take apart a problem and patiently explain it step by step. Overall, a very solid tutor!
David has been the perfect Calc AB and BC tutor for me. I'm a 40 year-old who is taking Calc to satisfy a pre-req for a graduate program. It's been 25 years since I last had Calculus, so I've needed a lot of review. David has been wonderful at discerning between what I should zero in on vs what I can cover in a more cursory manner. He's easy to schedule with and very reliable.
If anyone should have a tutor, then David is the one to refer to. David's method of teaching physics based calculus helped me appreciate how things fitted together in the natural sciences. There was never a moment of doubt or confusion in his explanations. Whenever we worked through a problem set, he would also engage himself in figuring out the answers as well. He is always ready with paper, pen, and a calculator at hand. I believe anyone who has David will appreciate his vast knowledge in either calculus or physics.
David is the first tutor I have met/used from WyzAnt and he has been nothing short of great. He is prepared, patient, and approaches problems from all different angles. If you don't understand a problem, he will continue to explain it in different ways until it clicks with you. Each time we have met, I've immediately set up the next meeting. He's very knowledgeable, easy to schedule with, and quick to respond! No complaints -- highly recommend.
Great tutor, great guy. Easy to work with and knowledgable, would certainly recommend and plan on using him again myself this coming fall.
I worked with David to help me with a summer college-level calculus class. When I signed up for WyzAnt he reached out to me right away and we met almost every day that week. He was always prompt, had a very available schedule, and most importantly, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He was great at explaining concepts and showing me how to work through problems. His tutoring really helped me excel in the class. David is a great tutor and anyone would be lucky to work with him!
David is an excellent tutor and a good fit for my daughter. He arrives on time, fully prepared, and is able to explain a variety of concepts clearly. He then allows my daughter to approach a problem on her own while offering guidance as needed. I highly recommend David.
David has proven to be an excellent tutor. He is on-time, prepared, responsive, and professional. He assessed my son's base knowledge of the pre-calc math concepts and has built upon that. David is extremely knowledgeable and is able to keep my son engaged the entire time by explaining the concepts clearly and concisely. Would highly recommend David.
David has been working with my daughter for several weeks. She has found him to be very helpful and knowledgeable. He presents the material in a way that she can understand and we would certainly highly recommend him.
David is so much help with my philosophy. He helps me understand difficult philosophic concepts and structure my essays for a top grade - Thanks David
I was under exam pressure and needed someone to help me learn a large volume of information quickly and effectively. Feeling quite overwhelmed and frankly, desperate, I reached out to David. He has a talent of explaining information in an easy to understand and concise way. I look forward to working with him again!
Great tutor, shows effort to help out. Thanks for the Calculus session. I will be using your help on other subjects in the near future. Thank you again.
David is a very good tutor. I have a much stronger grasp of business statistics after meeting with him. He was able to explain the concepts clearly and help me work through the problems.
The tutor is very knowledgeable and patient and is familiar with many different types of questions on the subject matter.
So far I've been with David for some time and he has always been on top of things to make sure that I know it well. I am very pleased with his tutoring skills. Highly recommended.
David has been teaching my son, a senior in high school, calculus. David is super smart, a great teacher, very kind, and also super reliable. We could not imagine anyone better.
David is great!! He was super helpful in preparing me for my calculus placement exam. He is a great teacher and would recommend him to anyone. He is patient, clear, and knowledgeable.
Had a great time working with David as my tutor for university level math. He was able to thoroughly explain all of my questions and was very quick to return emails. Also, when I needed his help but we couldn't meet face to face, he kindly provided explanations over email. Couldn't have asked for better guidance!
David has been tutoring my son in 9th grade algebra and some grammar. He is very knowledgeable, reliable, and patient, and he has helped my son considerably. I would highly recommend him.
David provided me with a slow, clear, and understandable way of learning calculus-based physics. I feel as though I could relate to the material now more than ever. The tutor was very patient and provided me with an excellent comprehensive review of the material I needed to study.
My daughter's first meeting with David was very successful. David seems efficient and very knowledgeable. We are looking forward to working with him.
David does a superb job of explaining tough topics in math (and other areas) & of supporting students in developing their strategies to master material. He is patient, supportive, and professional. Always punctual and flexible with scheduling. A great tutor!
David is reliable and very prepared at all tutoring sessions. My son has gotten two As on his tests, and I thought finite math was going to be very difficult for him, but David has made it easy!!!
David is by far the best tutor that I have encountered. With other tutors, there was always something missing, and my lessons never felt quite satisfactory enough, but David's lesson gave me a deep understanding of the problems with which I was having difficulty, because he is a real educator with a full grasp of the subject, and is able to explain concepts step by step, as well as anticipate all the problems that might arise when the student is learning them. He was kind, patient, and worked in sync with me. The lesson went smoothly, and he answered every single one of my questions. There is no better tutor than David.
David helped me with a college Linear Algebra course. He was very knowledgeable on the subject and extremely thorough and patient. He was always ready to explain a problem to me from different perspectives and make sure I understood every detail. I had no trouble setting up weekly sessions because he was always ready to accommodate my schedule. I highly recommend David to anyone who needs help with a class.
I have only had one session so far with David, but even from this 1 hour he sat with me I could feel that he is very confident about the material, and knew all the formulas right away. He is very nice and calm and comfortable to be with. I would love to recommend him as a tutor for statistics to everyone.
David is a great tutor. He is very smart and is on point with everything he is teaching you. He also can explain the subject matter (Math) in different ways which is really helpful.
David was such an amazing tutor. He works with you and breaks down everything so that you can understand it. He makes every problem seem simple and is really great at helping you see your mistakes. (Not to mention he's a genius). I highly recommend him.
I loved working with David. He was fabulous at breaking down the material for me, when my professor wasn't able to do so. He was quite patient, and took his time to work different angles when I was stuck with my work, and the concepts in front of me. I would gladly and assuredly recommend him as a math tutor.
Very helpful! David is an awesome tutor and teaches topics starting from the basics. He goes very slow to make sure you know the material!
Besides being incredibly bright yet humble, David is very patient and a pleasure to work with. He is great at coming up with examples to break down otherwise confusing material. He is also extremely thoughtful and proactive about helping you achieve your academic goals/pursuits. I'd highly recommend his services if you need some extra help in a math course, or preparation for a standardized exam.
My son was having difficulty with his High School Honors Physics class. David was an outstanding find. David has been patient and supportive while taking my son through very difficult concepts. David is thoughtful and takes the time to thoroughly explain each step of the problem solving process. My son's grades have been much improved since David's been on board.
We screened and had sessions with several tutors before choosing David. We are extremely happy with our choice. David tutors my 16-year old son in 11th grade physics. My son is focused and excited about the subject. His weekly sessions with David are keeping him very motivated.
David has been helping my daughter review math for her SATs. He is very knowledgeable and patient and has helped her understand and improve her score.
David is a wonderful tutor. He was very patient with me. I'm not very good in math and he took the time to explain everything to me. He was very easy to get in contact with and that was a plus for me. Overall he is a great tutor who knows his stuff. I ended up getting a B in the class.
I contacted David for help with the second half of my Calculus 2 class I was taking over the summer. Working so much and it being an accelerated course left me behind in some of the sections and actually in trouble of not passing but he was able to help me with it all! He simplified everything down no matter how complicated the problem while still explaining the subject thoroughly and making it SO much easier. I'd say he went above and beyond what he needed to do. He explained the background of a subject before actually talking about it and explaining how to do the problems so not only did I get a better understanding of how to do a problem, but also why. He went over tons of problems with me and did them out so I could see how they were done before I practiced some on my own which was awesome. Also very flexible hours and was willing to work as many times as I needed. Passed the class with a B- with his help which I couldn't have done on my own in the place I was in! Thank you again!
Liked him a lot, easy to reach, went fast and helped me understand math. He was patient and let me ask questions.
I began working with David when I was having some trouble in physics, and with his help I successfully earned A's on tests after I worked with him (prior I had been averaging B's). He has also been very helpful in tutoring me for the AP stats exam and the ACT both of which he is very well versed on. Overall, he is a great tutor, the best I have had, and is knowledgeable and able to help in a wide range of subjects! I would definitely recommend him!
David was flexible to my schedule and explained very difficult subject matter (advanced statistics) from the ground up.He explained it in such a way that mostly anyone could grasp the work. Good Job!
I had David as a tutor for Calc 1 in college. I am not good at math AT ALL, but this tutor helped me a lot. David is a very smart and excellent tutor. He was always willing to make sessions and he is very flexible with his hours. He is also very easy to contact and he always answers quickly. Just make sure you have an agenda or some problems you want to go over when you plan a session. He explains things very well and will go over something until you understand. He is also very patient and willing to keep going over something if you don't get it. I highly recommend David for anyone needing help in math!
I needed some help in my college course Calculus III, and he was more than great. We solve all problems together in many different ways, and as Calculus III requires good imagination as it's a multivariable calculus, he was really helpful to grasp the concepts of all topics and not just memorize formulas!! Finally, English is my second langage, but that was not barrier at all as in our lessons we go in each problem step by step!!!
David helped me with my MBA Probability and Statistics practice questions, and I learned a lot from him. I went to our meetings with the textbook practice questions and things I couldn't figure out, and he helped. We only moved on once I got it, and sometimes we finished early, but I always learned what was on my list.
David really helped me understand everything I was learning in my statistics class. Highly recommend.
You can easily tell that David has a great deal of experience in mathematics. I used his help for Statistics and it greatly improved my overall confidence, performance and understanding of the subject. I would certainly recommend David for your tutoring needs.
David is a very patient and calm tutor who is persistent in transferring his math knowledge to my daughter. If my daughter doesn't understand the information he is presenting to her, David finds another way for her to understand this information. My daughter looks forward to her tutoring session and she says David has quite the sense of humor, which always helps!
I cannot say enough good things about David's effectiveness as a tutor! He is extremely knowledgeable across all disciplines but especially in math and physics. David works patiently with a student to help her/him gain mastery of difficult topics and achieve higher grades. David's patient style of tutoring helps to reduce a student's stress and engender confidence.
Both parent and student will be so happy with the results!
David is an amazing tutor. He helped me with a physics class and he was awesome. He was great at explaining the problems and he made everything very easy to understand and follow. I walked away from every lesson feeling confident with the material. He will make sure you get the right answers and understand the process. David is also a great guy and is easy to get in contact with. Awesome guy and awesome tutor, I'm really glad I was able to have him as a tutor.
I had never hired a tutor for any of my kids until my 17 yr old daughter was struggling in AP chemistry and was beginning to hate a subject that she had really enjoyed. She was hesitant about it, but David made her immediately feel comfortable. From the first session I saw her confidence grow as she came to understand the material better. She was so impressed with David's knowledge, telling me "this guy knows everything!" With his help she was able to bring her grade from a low C to a high B and started loving chemistry again! My daughter is taking 3 AP science and math courses next year and I won't hesitate to call David again if she needs help.
My daughter had worked with another tutor and had persisted with the tutor even though she had some doubts about the effectiveness of the sessions.
After one session with David, she knew that he would be very helpful to her and felt so relieved to be spending her time working with him.
She went in to her SAT test more relaxed and more confident because of working with David.
From beginning to end, David has proven himself as a patient, helpful, and understanding tutor. From March to May, I have a better comprehension of Math 1420 than before. Words can't describe how much of an excellent job David has done with helping me with problems I was dealing with and guiding me to practice harder.
I strongly recommend David to anyone who needs help on difficult math problems.
David has been doing a great job for my daughter. She loves his style of tutoring and feeling much more confident in SAT testing after two months of weekly tutoring.
I was greatly distressed due to the incomprehensible projects and tests questions of Econometrics due to an inexperienced and inapt professor. But after working a few sessions side by side with David, I was able to tackle various topics that have confused me in the past. He is patient and is able to explain difficult concepts in simple terms. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of some help in math related topics.
If you are contemplating giving Dave a shout to set up an appointment for some tutoring, don't hesitate. I have tried a few different tutors on WyzAnt and other places, and he was by far the best, hands down. I cannot think of enough good things to say about him as a tutor. He is extremely easy to get a hold of, and always seems to make room on his schedule. He is extremely patient, and genuinely cares that I am understanding the material. I was getting tutored in Trig, and at a few points was having tremendous difficulty with the way the book was presenting the material, so Dave explained it in an alternative manner which was much easier to comprehend. I would absolutely recommend Dave to anyone who needs help with their studies. My only regret is that I did not contact him sooner.
David worked with me on many problems for my take home test and took his time to explain all the different types of problems. I learned a lot from this experience.
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.
I studied mathematics and additional mathematics for my UK GCSE exams where algebra was covered extensively. I received A*s in both of these classes (highest scores). I then studied mathematics and further mathematics for my UK A levels (similar to US AP exams) where further topics in algebra were covered. I received As in both of these classes (also highest scores).
I also studied mathematics at both Imperial College, London and Princeton.
I have tutored several students in algebra from local Providence schools and farther afield.
Having studied mathematics at a variety of levels (high school and college) and institutions (Princeton and Imperial College, London) I'm very comfortable with calculus. I can tutor students in any form of calculus from high school, to AP (either AB or BC), to college.
I've tutored calculus, AP AB Calculus, AP BC Calculus, Calc I, Calc II, Calc III and Calc IV to students at schools and colleges in both Providence and New York with much success.
I studied chemistry for my UK A levels (similar to US AP exams) and received an A (highest score).
I also took several chemistry classes at Princeton while I was an undergraduate there.
I've tutored students in both regular and AP chemistry at several schools in the Providence area.
I studied A-level mathematics and further mathematics in the UK and received As in both subjects. Differential equations was one of the many advanced math topics covered on the syllabus.
I also studied mathematics at Imperial College, London for a year where I took 8 courses in pure mathematics including several that dealt with differential equations.
Finally, I studied mathematics at Princeton University where I again encountered this material. I'm very familiar with it.
I studied A-level mathematics and further mathematics in the UK and received As in both subjects. Various topics in discrete mathematics such as combinatorics were covered among other advanced math topics included in the syllabus.
I also studied mathematics at Imperial College, London for a year where I took 8 courses in pure mathematics including several that dealt with discrete mathematics.
Finally, I studied mathematics at Princeton University where I again encountered this material. I'm very familiar with it.
I have a strong background in mathematics, including statistics and have applied this knowledge to the statistical study of economics: econometrics.
I recently tutored a Brown undergraduate in the subject and helped him better understand the mathematical underpinnings of the material.
I have also worked with several students studying business statistics which has a great deal of overlap with econometrics.
Having studied mathematics for my A levels in the UK, at university at Imperial College in London and then again at Princeton University I've had ample opportunity to study finite/discrete math. I've tutored students in the subject from a number of colleges including Brown, NYU and Columbia among others.
I studied A-level mathematics and further mathematics in the UK and received As in both subjects. Linear algebra was one of the many advanced math topics covered on the syllabus.
I also studied mathematics at Imperial College, London for a year where I took 8 courses in pure mathematics including Geometry and Linear Algebra.
Finally, I studied mathematics at Princeton University where I again encountered this material in a class I took with Professor Sarnak in freshman year: Honors Linear Algebra. I'm very familiar with it.
Having studied both philosophy and mathematics at advanced levels I have encountered logic from both the philosophical and mathematical perspectives a number of times.
While studying for my MA in philosophy at Virginia Tech I studied logic and received an A in the class. I'm very comfortable with the material covered in logic classes.
I have an MA in philosophy from Virginia Tech and I completed PhD coursework at Brown. I focused primarily on political philosophy and moral philosophy but have experience in most areas of the subject. I've TAed numerous classes in those areas at both institutions and have taught high school philosophy courses at a private high school.
I received an A (maximum score) in my UK A level Physics class (similar to US AP classes) and then studied mathematics and physics at both Imperial College, London and Princeton University.
I've tutored both high school students and college students in physics and greatly enjoyed explaining and clarifying the concepts involved.
I scored a perfect 800 on the SAT math section when I took the test prior to going to Princeton. I find that an approach of repeatedly working through actual SAT problems and identifying the types of problems that the SAT commonly asks is the best training to do well on the test.
I have studied statistics at a variety of levels and in a variety of contexts. I studied statistics for my UK A level mathematics and further mathematics qualifications (similar to AP exams in the US). I received As in both of these (highest scores).
I then studied the subject again in classes at both Imperial College London and Princeton University where I studied mathematics and political science.
I have tutored a number of students in different forms of statistics including statistics for psychology, statistics for business and statistics for economics.
