I am a practicing attorney who graduated with honors from SUNY Buffalo Law School. Before I enrolled in law school, I worked for an international test prep organization, helping students to prepare for the SAT and ACT exams in both classes and individualized tutoring. There are many test prep programs that can help a student increase his or her score in a classroom setting; many students, however, see their scores increase faster with individualized tutoring, which allows for more particularized focus in areas in which they would like to improve.
With my help, students will learn the most effective ways to improve their scores. We will discuss how to eliminate incorrect answer choices, often before even reading the question. I will also gauge each student's pace and progress, allowing us to adjust the learning schedule to increase scores efficiently.
Many of my students have seen tremendous gains in scores. This is no guarantee of success for everyone, but is an indication of what is attainable with helpful instruction and earnest effort by the student.
I highly recommend David. After just a few weeks of working with my daughter, he helped her significantly improve her ACT score. He's now helping her with the college essay process. She was feeling overwhelmed when he entered the picture and he quickly smoothed things out and got her on her way. A direct (and unsolicited) quote from my daughter: One of the things I really like about David is that he points out the things I did right that I hadn't noticed, on top of helping me fix the things I did wrong. David has been a very helpful and calming presence as my daughter navigates the stressful senior year of high school. He's patient, always on time, and he knows A LOT. It almost seems as though if I asked him to teach her Swahili or quantum physics he wouldn't bat an eye!Kirstie, 21 lessons with David
David is the best!
My son worked with David to prepare for the SATs. That was such a great experience that we asked David to continue meeting with him between high school and college to help work on his writing skills. We’ve seen such dramatic improvement in our son’s abilities since they started - both grammatically and expressively. David has a patient and encouraging way about him and my son truly looked forward to their sessions together. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and is the type of tutor parents hope to have for their child.Christina, 29 lessons with David
Flaw Questions for LSAT
We went over Flaw questions and starting at the beginning stages. He helped me to see what makes the stimulus a flaw question! Looking forward to working more with him.Roshida, 5 lessons with David
Great Session as usual
In addition to the phenomenal guidance on Reading Comprehension and the Logic Game, David provided several beneficial study and test preparation techniques. This is very useful since my exam is 18 days away. I'm feeling a lot more confident with my abilities.Monica, 16 lessons with David
David is such a calm and reassuring tutor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and difficulties and then takes the time to explain not only what you’re doing right but how to fix what you’re doing wrong. He doesn’t just focus on one question/game but really provides tips and techniques that can be applied for other sections or questions. He also is very receptive to your speed and agility in terms of how comfortable you are with a problem and adjusts the time he takes to that. He never goes too quickly or rushes your thought process—he goes over each answer choice for each question. My score has definitely improved since I worked with David and I would and do recommend him to anyone reaching for a very unstressful study boost!Tifenn, 5 lessons with David
David really knows how to pick apart questions, so it’s easier to understand. This tactic is especially helpful to me!Ariel, 6 lessons with David
Patient, engaging and knowledgeable.
David helps our son with multiple subjects. He is very patient, engaging and knowledgeable. He is also very good at teaching study and test taking skills. We highly recommend David for your child.Ehsan, 14 lessons with David
Knowledgeable, patient, flexible
David has helped me gain a better understanding of the logic games section of the LSAT -- he shows me how to tackle each game; i.e., which question to address first and how to set up an effective diagram. In our logical reasoning lessons, he has taught me how to really hone in on what the question is asking and how to respond. Although I still struggle with timing, I am finding that my answers are consistently improving.Grace, 7 lessons with David
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
My son really likes David a lot. He says he learns a lot from him and feels very comfortable with him. He is patient and we hope to have David around for the rest of High School and even college if needed. He works with us when things come up and we are very grateful for this. David is hands down one of the best tutors we have had.Lorinda, 11 lessons with David
