About David

As an academic professional, that currently works in a college setting advising students I am a strong proponent of education. In working with college students, who ranging in their academic level, from AA degree to graduate degree I very much appreciate the difference of each individual.

I have worked as a student services adviser, academic coach, tutor and manager of online program and am very diverse in my professional advising experience.I believe that good tutoring, and therefore academic success, comes from listening to the challenges each student brings to the table, and working to set goals with each student, that focuses on the strengths they have rather than the weaknesses.

I have completed my Bachelors in Communication Studies, and while I started my Master in Counseling Psychology, it's a degree I have not completed yet. However during my Bachelors and my Masters I often found myself explaining concepts to other students, and being extremely excited as they accomplished something they previously thought impossible.

You will find me extremely compassionate in my style, yet challenging, graceful yet demanding in that this is your session-lets make it worth while. Often during my first session I am looking for concrete goals, for example: "I want to only be investing "x" amount of time in my homework weekly" or "I would like to learn how to use excel in "x" way". Then off of these goals we will find a personal approach that will work for you. There is always a way through each situation, and each obstacle, lets work together to find out whatever that might be for you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

I have completed my BA in Communication Studies and am currently in the process of completing my Masters in College Student Counseling. In addition to my formal education, have also spent more than five years working in higher education.

My experience includes a wide range of tasks from Academic Advising to Admissions to Financial aid. I have worked with (in person and over the phone) students interested in a wide range of degrees, beginning at AA and going all the way up to a Doctoral degree.

Macintosh

I was lead TA in college to a professor in providing Mac support skills, ranging from software install to video uploads. Within my current professional position, working for a University, I am lead IT support for campus staff, professors and students. I will assist students in understanding Mac software, install or any troubleshooting tasks that may arise.

Psychology

I am a Career/Success Coach. I have a BA in Communication Studies. My MA in Psychology is in progress.

Public Speaking

The study and development of the ability to provide information to a group of people. I have received my Bachelors in Communication studies and took several classes within that program to refine my public speaking ability. In addition I have also been responsible for professional presentations and have even presented a extensive academic at a academic conference.

Study Skills

The ability for a individual to strategically approach a subject in a way that maximizes learning comprehension. Having worked in higher education I have spent thousands of hours with students advising them on study skills. In addition as my professional experience as a life coach I worked with hundreds of clients over the phone, seeking to devise means to make them more efficient. I believe that these same time management strategies can also be used in study skills.

Track & Field

I ran track and field all the way through high school doing a variety of events. I completed events like long jump to 400m dash. After high school, I continued running and have since then completed a triathlon and a half-marathon, up the side of a mountain, in 2 hours and 4 min.
