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.

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.

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.

Stellar Professional

David is a stellar professional that invests time and effort to ensure that every student reach his/her full potential. David has helped me enormously and continues to do so. He has a great heart and genuinely cares about my success and constantly finds new and innovative ways to help me learn new material.

Well Prepared, Excellent Bar Tutor

My score increased by 43 scores in the NY bar exam, compared to the bar exam that I took in last February. I am a retaker, and English is my second language (I am a foreign lawyer in Asia), but David explained legal issues very well. He was always well prepared for the class materials. I did one and half hour per session, two to three times per week for two months, normally covering (i) 6 essay questions, (ii) 12-14 MBE questions, (ii) 8-10 MBE questions with 2 essay questions, (iii) 1 MPT plus 2 essay questions, or (iv) 1 MPT plus 3-4 MBE questions. I really studied very hard with him. I am very happy to get high scores in the bar exam, which is well enough to transfer my scores even to State of Alaska. I just put everything on the exam that I learned and studied with him. I firmly believe that David could cover the bar exam in any states if materials are properly given to him before the class (I provided him with some materials, thinking that it would be great investment for me, and turned out to be true). I am happy to pass the bar. Yeh! Very competent and excellent bar tutor!

Excellent Tutor

Our son was really impressed- and he's not easily impressed- by David's knowledge and his ability to provide helpful tips for taking the SAT. Our son has used a few different tutors in the last few months to prepare for standardized test's and he thought that David was by far the best. We will definitely use David again and I have no hesitation recommending him

Deirdre, 1 lesson with David

Dave is exceptional!

Dave has been working with our high school son to prepare him for the ACT test. He's so patient, thorough, knowledgeable, and kind. My son is relating really well to him and truly enjoys their sessions together. Dave's communication skills are great too. We look forward to more sessions with him.

Awesome tutor, made studying LSAT fun!

David was a great tutor, he was very flexible with when to meet and with what I wanted to get out of every lesson. He made the learning environment fun while also productive. We tried different study methods and strategies to help me find the one I needed in order to do well on the LSAT. He's very nice, always on time and highly recommendable.

LSAT Preparation with David

David was an excellent tutor. He always showed up to our sessions prepared and on time. He also listened to my suggestions, and tailored our lessons to what I wanted to focus/improve on. I feel confident heading into the LSAT thanks to the time I have spent working with David.
