David's Bio

David graduated from Swarthmore College, where he studied everything under the sun before earning a degree in linguistics and music. He eventually realized that his intellectual interest was in philosophy, and he spent a number of years working in an office at the University of Pennsylvania and taking undergrad courses in philosophy, mathematics, and art history. He then moved to NYC to study philosophy at Columbia University, where he earned a PhD, specializing in the philosophy of language. He taught philosophy and intellectual history courses at Columbia and Drew University.

In addition to teaching college students, David has experience tutoring middle and high school students in SAT and ACT prep, math, logic, writing, Latin, and history. He has also taught several courses in philosophy to high school students in NYC.

David believes that his role as a tutor is to prepare his students for the test experience so that they will be prepared to handle any questions they encounter on a test. David says, "This means I always try to aim for understanding in general rather than or, that is, in addition to learning particular facts." He enjoys seeing a student's excitement and relief when they learn challenging material and when grades and test scores improve.

Outside of teaching and tutoring, David enjoys making computer music and watching films. His goal is to see every film ever released by The Criterion Collection. Though he is no longer a college professor, he continues to explore his philosophical interests, asking those tough questions that form the basis of philosophy.
