About David


Bio

My 40 Years of teaching mathematics, includes 32 years at the high school level. The remainder were at the middle/junior high school level. My experience includes 23 years at Scarsdale High School, where I taught algebra1, geometry, algebra2/trig, pre-calculus, and calculus. I taught each of those types of courses, there and elsewhere, at more than one level. Classes varied from slower paced with a lot of reinforcement to honors level classes with frequent challenges and a faster pace.

My 40 Years of teaching mathematics, includes 32 years at the high school level. The remainder were at the middle/junior high school level. My experience includes 23 years at Scarsdale High School, where I taught algebra1, geometry, algebra2/trig, pre-calculus, and calculus. I taught each of those types of courses, there and elsewhere, at more than one level. Classes varied from slower paced with a lot of reinforcement to honors level classes with frequent challenges and a faster pace.

I have tutored for many years as well. I've tutored all the subject areas mentioned above as well as SAT math and pre-algebra. In most cases, I worked with students on course material they were trying to learn in school. However, I also tutored students that were looking to advance to a higher level in math. I tutor for understanding rather than memorization. I explain, demonstrate, ask a lot of questions and then like to watch the students do work. From my experience, I know there are often multiple ways to do a problem and certainly multiple ways to explain it. I also realize that with a student that is having difficulty it takes time for things to "click" and so I am very patient. Often it's a case of "holes" in someone's background affecting their understanding of new concepts. So we have to work on those "holes". If appropriate, I will communicate with the student's teacher in school. In addition, I like to leave a student something to work on that we've focused on during the session, but this is somewhat dependent upon the student's available time.

Excellent teacher

David is a very experienced teacher. My son benefits from his knowledge, patience and teaching experience tremendously. He understands what sort of problems student will encounter in learning nath and can explain to them how to solve the problems in a way students can understand thoroughly. His advice is indispensable to my son's learning. Thanks David.

Coris, 14 lessons with David

Great math tutor!

This is the second time we used David, each time for a different child. Both times he explained concepts extremely well. Would highly recommend.

Robert, 2 lessons with David

Outstanding result oriented!!

David is an excellent result oriented tutor. He was able to explain the concept to his students clearly instead of just solving the problem for them. I recommend David without any reservations!

Liz, 1 lesson with David

Great High School Math Tutor

David loves what he does and is ready to run the extra mile for his students. He has a ton of experience and goes far and beyond to help them. To say that David is a great teacher will do him injustice, he is more than that, I have met very few tutors (if any) as good as he is. Strongly recommend.
