Since 1997, I have been helping students achieve their academic goals and improve their fundamental math and English skills. I work with kids and adults of all ages, teaching all lessons personally. My students find me patient and gifted at explaining difficult concepts from multiple perspectives.
Tutor and Author: When you or your children work with me, you know you are being taught by someone who has not only mastered the material, but in many cases written it. I have co-authored two guidebooks to the Graduate Records Exam, or GRE, published by the prestigious publishing house, Barron's (available on Amazon.com – keyword “David Freeling”).
My newest book, VocabMonster, teaches 300 of the most frequent SAT words using funny, full-color cartoons and creative mnemonic devices. Preview the material for free and begin laughing while you learn by visiting www.VocabMonster.com.
I have always believed in making education fun and engaging. My self-published classic, The First Fun SAT Book, teaches the most important strategies for the test using concise, easy-to-remember lessons.
Areas of Focus: I specialize in the following areas:
- Test Prep for most standardized exams including the HSPT, SSAT, ISEE, COOP, PSAT, PLAN, SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT.
- Schoolwork and homework help. Many of my clients are elementary, middle, and high school children, who meet me once per week to improve their grades and keep up with their classes.
- Math: all levels including basic arithmetic, algebra, geometry, pre-cal, calculus, and statistics.
- English: reading comprehension, vocabulary development, grammar, essay writing, writing and editing skills, college personal statements.

Rates: The rate for individual lessons in any subject is $80 per full hour of one-on-one tutoring. Please pay by cash or check. Small group lessons are available and can be a great way to save, because costs are divided among students. The hourly rate for two-on-one lessons is $95, and for three-on-one is $110. Lessons that need to be cancelled or rescheduled less than 24 hours in advance are subject to a cancellation fee of $40 if at least six hours notice is given, or the full tutorial rate if less than six hours notice is given.
Background and Experience: I graduated from Columbia University in 1991 with a BA in mathematics and completed a year of graduate school in the Columbia University Mathematics Department in 1992. Before starting my own tutoring business, I was trained and employed by two companies for two years: The Math Set and Advantage Testing, both of Atlanta, GA. In 2004 I founded the business, Insight Tutoring of San Francisco, which I have directed until the present. I have worked with hundreds of students from public and private schools across the Bay Area, including Lowell, SOTA, Lick-Wilmerding, UC Berkeley, the San Francisco School, University High School, Saint Ignatius, and many others. For a combined 10 years, I conducted on-site, comprehensive SAT prep classes at the International High School (FAIS/IHS) and Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep.
Parent and Volunteer: I am the proud parent of three children myself and am happy to give back to the community by volunteering as a classroom tutor about two hours per week in their elementary school.
Word on the Street: I often overhear my students saying, “I learned more in one hour with David than in one week of math at school.”
