About the Instructor


Instructor David C. Samuel, M.A.Ed

As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame.

Biography and Background

My professional career has been dedicated to education. I received my B.A. degree from UCLA and then worked as a state credentialed math and English teacher in both private and public schools for ten years.  To expand upon my expertise, I pursued a master's degree in Special Education from CSUN (California State University at Northridge), graduating with a 3.95 GPA.  Advanced coursework in state academic curriculum, including best practices in instructional methods and data driven instructional decisions, have strengthened my qualifications as an educational professional.  

I have witnessed the effectiveness of Kumon's unique methodology over the years, not only with hundreds of students attending Westchester Kumon, but also with my own daughter.
