For over 20 years I have tutored students preparing for both the Baby Bar and the Bar Exam in California. The students who successfully complete the assigned work have had outstanding success rates on these difficult exams. During the same period, I have been a law professor, teaching over 10 legal subjects.

In addition, my degree in chemistry, my tutoring experience since college, and my work in medical research offer unique skills in these areas as well.

Learning is one of the most exci...
As a law student, David has been helping me write essays. He is very knowledgeable and confident in picking a side and build from it based on the black letter law. David knows the black letter law back to back. I appreciated his immense knowledge of the black letter law and challenging me to get the law concepts correctly and apply it based on the prompt of the question.

Working with David was great. He did his best and taught me crucial tips in drafting my essay in just short amount of time. I wish we had more time together, but I would recommend David to anyone.
- Cohen B. from Inglewood, CA
David is a very good tutor. He really helped me a lot with my assignments. He was able to address all my concerns and questions that I had about my lessons in the 90 minutes he was here. I am looking forward to my next tutoring session. Thank you, David!
- Lawrence T. from Los Angeles, CA
I wish I met David earlier. His advice and strategies are extremely valuable in preparing for the baby bar exam! The way I was analyzing certain doctrines in Contract law were off and he helped me put together a great strategy for essay exam writing and MBEs. Thank you David!
- Jeanine J. from San Francisco, CA
David is patient and keeps my son on task. Would highly recommend him for any and all tutoring needs. Always punctual and professional. Never thought I could find the right fit for my son but David really is pulling off a miracle.

David helped my daughter study for her Astronomy final at UCLA. He was very patient and knowledgeable about the subject and spent time preparing for the lesson.
- Jill S. from Los Angeles, CA
If you want someone who knows every detail of the law, this is the guy. He gives you some lecture type lessons at first with tips and tricks, and then focuses on actual work. You won't miss the details and are going to feel very challenged to know the material!
- Briana C. from Canyon Country, CA
He is a great source for California bar prep course. He is straight forward and didn't like to waste time chit chatting with me. He is very generous in sharing the techniques and strategies tackling one of the most challenging exams. See no more, David is your only hope

David has tutored one of my sons in chemistry and the other in algebra. His tutoring style is very approachable for kids and they both found him extremely helpful as well as patient.

The tutoring session with this tutor are more like lectures, long-drawn-out but sincere. An overwhelming concern for me was the number of times I had to request an agenda before our scheduled meetings. I do not feel value was returned for money spent. The sessions I purchased could have been more productive if the tutor had: (1) prepared an agenda in advance of each meeting; (2) communicated a clear strategy for providing feedback to homework assignments; (3) contacted the student to clarify misunderstandings so both parties can use the time in a productive fashion; (4) been more engaging with the student. And the sessions I purchased could have been more productive if I had asked for references from prior students rather than relying upon those provided by their parent's on this site.

I wish I would have found David my first week of law school. I reached out to him because I knew that I needed help in Criminal Procedure. I felt extremely lost and had no idea where to start my essays. The first day we met I learned a ton about how to approach exams in general. My school's academic success counselor had told us some of the same stuff, but David's approach was much more comprehensive. I went home and immediately starting using his principles. He also sent me home with some practice tests to do on the subject. I emailed them the night before our next meeting. The next day we walked through step by step what I did right and wrong. We then walked through the fact pattern itself and discussed how it influenced each of the concepts we were learning in class. I originally intended to only use David for the subject. That completely changed. I am now using him for my remaining finals, and have incorporated his services into my next year of law school and bar prep. It's fair to say that I don't know if David would work for everyone. He gives mini lectures during the sessions. He lets you ask questions (but I feel bad interrupting) but he answers a lot of them before you can even ask. I suggest giving him a try!

David continues to find creative ways to allow my son to truly learn and digest the material. Thank you David!
- Laurie S. from North Hills, CA
During this past 2 years my son Ricardo now at UCLA and my son Jesse had great time during tutoring with David. He has been an excellent tutor for my kids now he is tutoring with my daughter Grace. We are thankful because he has patience and easy to understand and great for our wallet!
- Ricardo M. from Los Angeles, CA
I had not taken chemistry before so the fast pace of the summer class made it difficult to understand. David helped me prepare for summer school first semester chemistry final.
- Joanne M. from La Crescenta, CA
David is one of the special ones. His tutoring skills far surpass any other tutors we've tried. We could not be happier with the level of knowledge and his ability to guide and direct focus in a complete process. We could not be happier. Thank you!
- Tracey M. from Valley Village, CA
I?ve read that the task of an excellent teacher is to stimulate ordinary people to unusual effort and this has definitely been the end result from David?s tutoring. My son was failing and struggling with pre-calculus and needed help understanding material to get on track towards a passing grade. David came in and was able to ease his anxiety on the subject and was extremely patient with him. He took the time to explain, and identify where the confusion was as well as explain the problems in a way that was easy for my son to understand. David then gave him the fundamentals he was lacking and the encouragement he needed to be able to succeed in this subject which has produced outstanding results!! Today my son feels at ease and able to participate in class because of the skills David has taught him in this subject. We would like to THANK David for his time and teaching expertise. Out of the three tutors my son had during this season, my son has expressed that although they were all great; David?s way of teaching reminded him the most of that of his grandfather which was extremely helpful in calming his anxiety and making him feel comfortable, competent, and confident in the subject. I highly recommend David F. to any parent or student who is struggling and would like a compassionate and amazing tutor. We were beyond blessed to have found him!
- Jessica N. from Alhambra, CA
Working with David has been great. He has both the knowledge of the law and the know-how of a teacher. His help has been instrumental in understanding the material and passing exams in law school, and the first year state bar exam (baby bar). I highly recommend David to anyone looking to improve their legal education.
- James B. from Northridge, CA
David is a very competent and patient tutor. I highly recommend him for anyone who needs help with FYLSX / Baby Bar essay writing.
- Arnold B. from Glendale, CA
David worked very hard with my son on his Algebra II work. He helped him understand many of the difficult-to-understand concepts and went out of his way to make the subject understandable to my son.
