All of David’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about David’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Classics

I have a summa cum laude B.A. in classical languages (Attic Greek and Latin) from the University of California, Berkeley. I was awarded the Departmental Citation for Distinction in the Major in 2009, upon graduation.

Further, I have tutored Latin and Graeco-Roman history and mythology extensively on a private basis, as well as at the Santa Rosa Junior College Tutorial Center from 2004 to 2007.

Greek

I can tutor Attic Greek (i.e. Ancient Greek) and NOT Modern Greek.

I have a summa cum laude B.A. in classical languages (Attic Greek and Latin) from the University of California, Berkeley. I was awarded the Departmental Citation for Distinction in the Major in 2009, upon graduation.

Further, I have tutored the Latin and Attic Greek languages (as well as Graeco-Roman history and mythology) extensively on a private basis, as well as institutionally at the Santa Rosa Junior College Tutorial Center from 2004 to 2007.

Religion

I have an M.A. degree in comparative religions (major field of focus: Orthodox Christianity; minor field of focus: Islam) from the University of Erfurt, Germany, where I was a Fulbright scholar researching medical ethics in Abrahamic religious traditions. For that reason, my special area of knowledge is in Judeo-Christian and Muslim traditions. My thesis was on the biopolitical interactions between the Orthodox Christian and Muslim communities in contemporary Russia.

Russian

I am a heritage speaker of Russian, who grew up in a Russian-speaking community within the San Francisco Bay Area. During my childhood, I attended "Russian School" at night after regular school and on weekends as a child, and was further constantly surrounded by Russian speakers in my community, where church services were conducted in Russian and Church Slavonic.

I have an M.A. degree in Orthodox Christianity, and since Russian was useful for my studies and research, I participated in several semesters of Russian classes at my university during my M.A. studies. Further, during my thesis writing, I lived in St. Petersburg, Russia, for 6 months while also studying Russian full time at the St. Petersburg State University (where I was the recipient of a D.A.A.D. scholarship to study the Russian language).

My proficiency in Russian far surpasses that of someone with a completed American-style B.A. in Russian Literature.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
