David is originally from St. Louis, Missouri, but lived in Little Rock, Arkansas for 8 years. Having spent most of his life in the Midwest and the South, he took a little while adjusting to the Boston weather of his undergrad years. David graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College with a major in History and Science and a minor in Molecular and Cellular Biology. While at Harvard, he conducted research at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and wrote numerous articles for the Harvard Crimson. He also worked extensively in public health and health policy at various NGOs and public policy think tanks, tackling topics such as nutrition and drug pricing. Currently, he is pursuing his MD at Harvard Medical School.
David has been tutoring since high school, first serving as a peer tutor as part of his high school’s after-school tutoring program. In college, he tutored the SAT/ACT through Harvard Student Agencies, and also taught poetry workshops in local communities and libraries. He enjoys advising students on personal statements and application essays, helping them craft their unique voice when putting together applications for colleges or graduate schools. David specializes in test preparation for the MCAT, but also has extensive experience tutoring biology, chemistry, and creative writing.
Outside of his academic studies, David enjoys exploring the outdoors, whether that’s going on hikes or visiting new parks, and playing basketball and soccer with friends. He loves playing ukulele and piano in his free time, and will never say no to a good Netflix show. Since medical school, David has also developed a fondness for cooking and experimenting with new recipes.
