About David

I have been teaching at the undergraduate level for the last ten years at CUNY in the field of political science. My research focuses generally on 20th century Italian political thought. In addition to politics, I have a background in the broader social science disciplines of women's studies, sociology, history, philosophy, and economics. I also have worked as director of a writing program, and prior to that I held a writing fellowship that worked with developing writing curriculum as well as assisting students with research papers and similar writing assignments.

I believe that most successful learning is student-centered with the instructor acting as a coach that assists the student to achieve their highest potential. My tutoring sessions are goal driven, with clearly established learning objectives. Overall, I seek to help students develop effective learning strategies suited to their capabilities.

Both my teaching and research are based in historical context as a method of understanding intellectual history. My courses emphasize historical approaches. My educational background reflects a sustained study of Western history within the broader contours of macro-world history. I also emphasize a pluralism of historiography that recognizes the merits of diverse approaches to the study and understanding of historical phenomena.

I am generally available everyday from 9am-9pm. I'm easy to approach, amicable, and professional. My rate is for in-person sessions at $50/hour.
