Growing an Avocado Plant

I recently planted a 3-4 year old avocado tree, which is now about 8 feet tall. Since planting, the leaf tips have been going brown and some leaves are very brittle, despite watering once or twice a day. Am I over watering? When I feel the earth around the tree, it can be quite dry.
