Hi, I'm David! I graduated from NYU Business School with a degree in finance in 2015. During my middle school and high school years, I developed a great passion and talent for math, which I can mostly attribute to the support of great mentors and teachers who made the learning process fun. Although math can seem very intimidating at first and can feel like learning a foreign language, I've found it can also become easy once the rules are understood and mastered.

Hi, I'm David! I graduated from NYU Business School with a degree in finance in 2015. During my middle school and high school years, I developed a great passion and talent for math, which I can mostly attribute to the support of great mentors and teachers who made the learning process fun. Although math can seem very intimidating at first and can feel like learning a foreign language, I've found it can also become easy once the rules are understood and mastered. I love being a guide to helping students crack the code and making the learning process as smooth and simple as possible. My approach is personalized and attuned to each student, ensuring that appropriate support is given according to the student's level and needs.
I used to compete in statewide and nationwide math competitions such as MATHCOUNTS and TMSCA in high school. I have taken the highest levels of math including AP Calculus 1&2, AP Statistics and scored a perfect score on the AP Exams. I also scored a 770/800 on the Math SAT. Because of my grasp on many core math concepts, I am able to break down the concepts so they are easy to understand for students, which led me to my love for teaching.
My first job in high school was at Kumon, a learning center, where I was the main math teacher for a year. I worked with students ranging from pre-K to high school on a wide variety of subjects (simple addition to calculus). During college, I worked as a part time SAT tutor for math and also taught math classes to groups of students preparing for exams. I have also worked as a life coach, working closely with clients on topics such as stress reduction, self-image, and positive mindset, which has deepened my ability to listen as well as guide people while supporting them in feeling seen throughout the process.
If you are looking for support in math for either school enrichment or test-prep, I'd love to help. Feel free to send me a message with any questions or to schedule a lesson with me!
