Meet David and David!

The Doctors are "IN!"

Tutors David Peretti and David Grimm

...met at Tufts University as graduate students in the biomedical science program.  When they graduated last May, 2018, they began the arduous process of applying to dental (David P.) and medical school (David G.).  

One night last summer, as they listened to David’s mom talk about her experience as a longtime SOWMA tutor, an epiphany struck.  Leslie Dougherty described the many ways in which her life has been enriched by the students she meets each week at a family shelter in Brockton.  Her anecdotal stories resonated deeply and by the time dessert was served that hot summer night, they each decided to begin tutoring this fall in Brockton, travelling from Boston every Monday night to help a student with homework.

Three months later we asked,  What’s your favorite part of tutoring?  

David G:  

“I like building a relationship with the kids.  It starts small and we’re strangers, but every session their smiles get a little bigger when we greet.” 

David P: 

“After being immersed in microbiology, biochemistry, immunology and all those other “ologies,” it’s nice to just come here and spell!”  

“The two Davids are the probably the funnest helpers,” said Antoine.  “They showed me math and it’s kind of easy.”  

Hats off to these two aspiring doctors, who prescribe all the right medicine every Monday night.
