I am a practicing attorney who graduated with honors from SUNY Buffalo Law School. Before I enrolled in law school, I worked for an international test prep organization, helping students to prepare for the SAT and ACT exams in both classes and individualized tutoring. There are many test prep programs that can help a student increase his or her score in a classroom setting; many students, however, see their scores increase faster with individualized tutoring, which allows for more particulari...
David is a patient tutor, very professional, and demonstrates great communication skills. I have completed a several lessons with him focussing on reading comprehension, and I feel like he has a lot of knowledge about the LSAT to share. His approach is non-confrontational, and a little informal that creates an atmosphere that eases test anxiety. I would also use him as a consultant for general questions about the law school application process.

In addition to the phenomenal guidance on Reading Comprehension and the Logic Game, David provided several beneficial study and test preparation techniques. This is very useful since my exam is 18 days away. I'm feeling a lot more confident with my abilities.

My son worked with David to prepare for the SATs. That was such a great experience that we asked David to continue meeting with him between high school and college to help work on his writing skills. We?ve seen such dramatic improvement in our son?s abilities since they started - both grammatically and expressively. David has a patient and encouraging way about him and my son truly looked forward to their sessions together. He?s incredibly knowledgeable and is the type of tutor parents hope to have for their child.

We went over Flaw questions and starting at the beginning stages. He helped me to see what makes the stimulus a flaw question! Looking forward to working more with him.

David is such a calm and reassuring tutor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and difficulties and then takes the time to explain not only what you?re doing right but how to fix what you?re doing wrong. He doesn?t just focus on one question/game but really provides tips and techniques that can be applied for other sections or questions. He also is very receptive to your speed and agility in terms of how comfortable you are with a problem and adjusts the time he takes to that. He never goes too quickly or rushes your thought process?he goes over each answer choice for each question. My score has definitely improved since I worked with David and I would and do recommend him to anyone reaching for a very unstressful study boost!
- Tifenn D. from Washington, DC
David really knows how to pick apart questions, so it?s easier to understand. This tactic is especially helpful to me!
- Ariel J. from Huntsville, TX
David helps our son with multiple subjects. He is very patient, engaging and knowledgeable. He is also very good at teaching study and test taking skills. We highly recommend David for your child.

David has helped me gain a better understanding of the logic games section of the LSAT -- he shows me how to tackle each game; i.e., which question to address first and how to set up an effective diagram. In our logical reasoning lessons, he has taught me how to really hone in on what the question is asking and how to respond. Although I still struggle with timing, I am finding that my answers are consistently improving.
- Grace F. from Washington, DC
My son really likes David a lot. He says he learns a lot from him and feels very comfortable with him. He is patient and we hope to have David around for the rest of High School and even college if needed. He works with us when things come up and we are very grateful for this. David is hands down one of the best tutors we have had.
- Lorinda O. from Mc Lean, VA
David is a stellar professional that invests time and effort to ensure that every student reach his/her full potential. David has helped me enormously and continues to do so. He has a great heart and genuinely cares about my success and constantly finds new and innovative ways to help me learn new material.

My score increased by 43 scores in the NY bar exam, compared to the bar exam that I took in last February. I am a retaker, and English is my second language (I am a foreign lawyer in Asia), but David explained legal issues very well. He was always well prepared for the class materials. I did one and half hour per session, two to three times per week for two months, normally covering (i) 6 essay questions, (ii) 12-14 MBE questions, (ii) 8-10 MBE questions with 2 essay questions, (iii) 1 MPT plus 2 essay questions, or (iv) 1 MPT plus 3-4 MBE questions. I really studied very hard with him. I am very happy to get high scores in the bar exam, which is well enough to transfer my scores even to State of Alaska. I just put everything on the exam that I learned and studied with him. I firmly believe that David could cover the bar exam in any states if materials are properly given to him before the class (I provided him with some materials, thinking that it would be great investment for me, and turned out to be true). I am happy to pass the bar. Yeh! Very competent and excellent bar tutor!

I highly recommend David. After just a few weeks of working with my daughter, he helped her significantly improve her ACT score. He's now helping her with the college essay process. She was feeling overwhelmed when he entered the picture and he quickly smoothed things out and got her on her way. A direct (and unsolicited) quote from my daughter: One of the things I really like about David is that he points out the things I did right that I hadn't noticed, on top of helping me fix the things I did wrong. David has been a very helpful and calming presence as my daughter navigates the stressful senior year of high school. He's patient, always on time, and he knows A LOT. It almost seems as though if I asked him to teach her Swahili or quantum physics he wouldn't bat an eye!
- Kirstie S. from Kensington, MD
Our son was really impressed- and he's not easily impressed- by David's knowledge and his ability to provide helpful tips for taking the SAT. Our son has used a few different tutors in the last few months to prepare for standardized test's and he thought that David was by far the best. We will definitely use David again and I have no hesitation recommending him
- Deirdre J. from Washington, DC
Dave has been working with our high school son to prepare him for the ACT test. He's so patient, thorough, knowledgeable, and kind. My son is relating really well to him and truly enjoys their sessions together. Dave's communication skills are great too. We look forward to more sessions with him.
- John S. from Washington, DC
David was a great tutor, he was very flexible with when to meet and with what I wanted to get out of every lesson. He made the learning environment fun while also productive. We tried different study methods and strategies to help me find the one I needed in order to do well on the LSAT. He's very nice, always on time and highly recommendable.
- Dorothy N. from Silver Spring, MD
David was an excellent tutor. He always showed up to our sessions prepared and on time. He also listened to my suggestions, and tailored our lessons to what I wanted to focus/improve on. I feel confident heading into the LSAT thanks to the time I have spent working with David.
- Pavan J. from Washington, DC
David is very familiar with the concepts of the bar exam subjects. I would give David my highest recommendation as a tutor.
- Meiling C. from Washington, DC
David has been great with my son who is a junior in high school. He is very patient with and takes his time to make sure he understands what he is working on. He is very dedicated - he even helped my son study for his final exams while out of the country via the internet. He told me David has really helped him understand his math and useful tools to use during test taking.
- Lisa S. from Bethesda, MD
David does not waste any time getting to work and focusing on important lessons that will help in taking the ACT. He went over practical tools to utilize in the math and reading sections. Reinforced that you can control the test instead of it controlling you.
- Aiden H. from Silver Spring, MD
Terrific tutor...smart and knows how to get the important points across! We will be requesting Dave again for future testing!
