About David

I love math and its application to real world problems, and I love finding creative ways to help people understand mathematics in simple and approachable ways. I have used my ability to think creatively to solve problems to earn a Masters in Mathematics, and I continue to apply these skills every day in my work as a research scientist at MIT. For me, tutoring isn't just a way of making money; I care about about the students I work with and always want them to succeed.

As a specialist in mathematics, I have experience tutoring high school and university students one-on-one, and have also led groups in linear algebra at university level. In my experience, problems in understanding are different for each student, and my approach is always to first find out what each individual is struggling with. I believe in fostering a relaxed environment where students feel confident to ask questions.

I have no cancellation policy and can usually be flexible to meet the needs of each student. I live with my girlfriend and two dogs in Jamaica Plain. We have a study area where students would be welcome to learn. I commute between MIT and Jamaica Plain by bike, so can be flexible and attend lessons in the areas around Kendall, Fenway and Jamaica Plain.
