Welcome to my profile! My name is David Stevens and I am originally from California. I moved to Boston two years ago and have developed a love for the city. I am currently pursuing a second master's degree at the New England Conservatory of Music in Music Theory. I have a passion for teaching youth have taught privately for almost a decade. I believe adapting to the individual students' personalities and learning style as well as presenting topics in a personal and engaging manner is of utmost importance in tutoring. In addition to tutoring, I work as a professional freelancing musician, a tutor for inner-city kids with Tutors for All, and teach music lessons privately and at EKS Music School in Quincy. In addition to teaching, I enjoy playing tennis, table tennis, a variety of other sports, hiking, camping, reading, and exploring museums and art galleries.

What is your teaching philosophy?

I strive to adapt to each individual student's needs and method of learning. I think it is important to give the student opportunities to think critically for problem-solving and create an environment of openness for questions and discussions.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would first gauge the student's current level of competency in the specific field of study and start charting out a game-plan for achieving tangible goals.
