MfA Master Teacher and Lead Teacher of Mathematics
Do you remember a time when you set a goal, and then you ACTUALLY succeeded? Remember how amazing that felt, and how much you want to just keep doing that thing? I get that feeling every time I work with math. Students see math questions as "problems," but I see them as an opportunity to start something new and discover something awesome lurking beneath the surface.
Yeah, I get that most of high school math probably isn't all that fun. I'm not sure that I ever really saw the use for it...

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor!
David has helped me understand one of the most complicated concepts of calculus that I thought I would never understand. He managed to explain the concepts, as well as teach me other various calculus tricks. Thanks to him, I did not stress over my homework for the first time this semester.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor
David is smart, personable, and reliable. This was his second tutoring session with my daughter, a junior at a specialized NYC high school. They worked on quite a few problems relating to Euler's Identity and the transition between trigonometric functions and the complex numbers. This included evaluating complex numbers to complex powers, rewriting formulae, understanding complex numbers as a rotation around the plane, and interpreting the complex angles providing for values of trigonometric functions outside their normal parameterization. I just wish I could understand all that :-).
