My name is David R., and I enjoy teaching and tutoring immensely. I find great reward when a student, "gets it", and really understands a concept fully. While I can "teach to the test," I also emphasize a deep understanding of the principles that underly a topic. I have extensive experience teaching and tutoring students of all ages, and I always strive to meet my students at their level of accomplishment, and continue from there. My attitude is friendly and focused.

My MA in Music Compisition from Mills College, my BA in Studio Art from UC Davis, in combination with 20+ years teaching privately and in groups, have honed my skills as a tutor in the following subjects: Music Theory, Music Practice (guitar, bass, mandolin, ukulele, violin, hand percussion), Visual Art, Graphic Design, most subjects for K-6th grade, public speaking, English pronunciation, French, and Creative Writing.

I make house visits in the vicinity of North Berkeley, CA, and also teach from my studio in North Berkeley. My rate is $65/hour, with a money-back guarantee if the student is not satisfied. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy with the option of rescheduling.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Best Regards,
David R.

Art Theory

While earning my BA in Studio Art from UC Davis, I earned high marks in several upper-division Art History courses, ranging from ancient Asian arts to Modern Expressionism. I have furthered this knowledge via self-study, and courses in contemporary Performance Art at Mills College in Oakland, CA. My enthusiasm for and appreciation of art in all its forms, results in a tutoring style that is inspiring, comprehensive, and insightful.
