About David

I began my tutoring career at Rutgers University, New Brunswick New Jersey tutoring students at local high schools in the areas of math and science. Upon graduating I continued tutoring while working as an educator in the city of Newark, New Jersey. I am an experienced math and science teacher, and I have serviced over 1,000 students and still going. I love assisting students in their educational dreams, and I began working with a premier SAT tutoring service after college as both as an SAT tutor, site director, and operations manager.

In continuing my education I left the world of professional college prep tutoring to complete a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. Today I am a PhD candidate in the field of Higher Education Administration and still teaching math and science full time.

I make SAT instruction and preparation fun! No one wants to study for the SAT so why not have fun doing it. Yes it is hard work but through positive reinforcement and great study techniques SAT math prep can be something students get excited about. I have taught math from kindergarten through college and have prepared many students for various standardized testing including the SAT for over 10 years.

Presently I am a math leader in an urban elementary school which means I am responsible for working with teachers on best practices for teaching math directly aligned with the common core state standards. I have an understanding of the common core state standards that goes well beyond what someone outside of the educational field would know as it has been my job to educate both students and teachers using these standards.

I have taught for over 10 years both math and science from kindergarten through college. I love teaching however I love tutoring even more as it gives me the opportunity to work with students on a one to one basis. I enjoy this aspect as you are able to see progress much more quickly as a direct result of your teaching and tutoring technique.

If you are in need of a tutor definitely contact me and we can setup an ongoing schedule. Perhaps you may need only one or two sessions of instruction or perhaps you may need more, all of which can be determined. Having a tutor in any subject can be a great help in meeting your educational goals. I am flexible and easy to work with as I understand how to keep students motivated. Contact me and we can get started on achieving your goals.

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.

Elementary Math

I have taught and tutored at all levels from kindergarten through college. Initially I began my teaching career teaching SAT test prep with one of the nations top test prep companies. Working with students for over ten years in preparing them for their SAT exams I go beyond just the content knowledge of the subjects and help to build skills dealing with improving confidence and reducing anxiety when testing. Ultimately I enjoy being able to present any student with all that they need in preparing for such an important exam.
