Dr David Solomon is the Maths and Numeracy tutor at NYU London. David provides one-to-one and occasional small group maths-related assistance, open to all students. His support covers a variety of topics on the mathematical and statistical methods used in Economics, Finance, Psychology and physics, including:
If you miss more than one scheduled appointment but forget to cancel it, you will not be allowed to visit the Maths and Numeracy Tutor again during the semester.
If you are more than ten minutes late for your appointment, you may lose your session to a student on the waiting list.
David Solomon studied Mathematics at Trinity College Cambridge (BA Hons. 1982, MSc 1983) and Brown University, USA (PhD 1988). Since then he has taught and researched Mathematics at major universities in France, UK and the US, most recently at King's College London as a Lecturer and Reader, at UCSD (Visiting Scholar, 2006/7) and the Open University (Associate Lecturer, current).
As a researcher, David specialises in Algebraic Number Theory, an area of pure mathematics particularly concerned with properties of whole numbers: primes, questions about Diophantine equations (e.g. Fermat's Last Theorem) number fields and “p-adic” numbers. He has held Posdoctoral and Advanced Fellowships from EPSRC, published many research papers - particularly on the Stark Conjectures - and supervised 4 PhD students.
David has a wide experience of teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate students through lectures, tutorials, projects and problem sessions. He has a keen appreciation of the difficulties they face at the school-university transition and later on.
