David Altshuler helps students and their families choose and apply to colleges, universities and traditional boarding schools as well as boarding schools for students who learn differently and for students who have emotional needs. He has been empowering students and helping them make good decisions since 1980 when he founded Educational Resources, a tutoring and test preparation firm.
David began his career in education by teaching mathematics and English at the middle school, high school, and community college level. Because he wanted to "teach children" in addition to teaching mathematics, he earned a Master's degree in developmental psychology. He now counsels students in all aspects of their growth and development--academic, social and emotional. He makes frequent trips across the United States every year, visiting colleges, boarding schools and therapeutic facilities to ensure that he can help families make the most appropriate choices. In the past five years alone, David has toured over 200 colleges, boarding schools and therapeutic facilities.
David meets with students, analyzes transcripts and testing, consults with other professionals and helps families determine the appropriate placement. He has helped thousands of students and their families make good decisions that have had a transformative positive impact on their lives.
David was recently nominated and confirmed as a board member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association, (2015-2017.) He is also a member of the National Association for College Admissions Counselors and the board of Informed Families, a drug and alcohol awareness organization.
David makes his home in Miami, Florida where he was born, raised and attended kindergarten through graduate school. He is active in the running community and competes in marathons and ultra-marathons across the country and the world. He enjoys going camping with his wife and four children, reading, and writing.
