David has a B.A. in Linguistics and Music from Swarthmore College, and a Ph. D. in Philosophy from Columbia University. He has taught and tutored students from 6th grade through college undergraduates, in subjects from Latin and writing to several kinds of math and formal symbolic logic, as well as several standardized tests including the SAT and ACT. He is a devotee of electronic music and is the proud owner of an analog modular synthesizer the size of a refrigerator.
Prior to starting tutoring sessions with David, [our daughter] was routinely scoring a 30-31 on the ACT practice exams. Having taken the test twice she now has a combined super score of 36!! Her best scores are as follows: English 36, Math 35, Reading 35, Science 36 And as you know the 35.5 average gets rounded up to a 36 !! Needless to say the ACT journey is now complete thanks to David’s guidance. We cannot thank him enough for his patience and skills during our 15 weeks prep sessions. On behalf of our entire family I’d like to thank David once again for working so well with our daughter; his technique and teaching skills are unmatched. David has most certainly made a tremendous difference not only in the schools our daughter has been able to apply to and now likely get admitted to but possibly in her entire career path and future. We're sure to tell everyone we know about his abilities.
