David was born and raised in the charming city of Dublin, Ireland. It was there that he discovered a love for mathematics and a desire to teach. Throughout his schooling life he recognized that hard work and effort supersedes raw intelligence in the race for success. He graduated from Dublin City University with First-Class Honors in Mathematical Sciences in 2010 and continued his ambitions by also acquiring a First-Class Honors in his Professional Diploma in Education from University College Cork in 2012. As a certified mathematics teacher, he has been teaching in the classrooms of public, private and boarding schools, in both Ireland and Australia, for almost six years. He has also been tutoring students one-to-one during these years. He is extremely excited to be a part of the BrainBoost team and to utilize his teaching experience in a new context. His approach to learning is student-centered, valuing the goals of the individual to create a lesson that is the most effective for them. He is really enjoying Vancouver life and can be spotted cycling the seawall or mountain biking up north. His hobbies also include surfing, kayaking and scuba diving. Ask him about scuba diving with hammerhead sharks!
