My name is David. I am committed to lifelong learning for myself and for others whom I tutor. I am also committed to a dynamic, creative, student-centered learning experience and would like the opportunity to help you gain new skills and new knowledge in English, German, ESL, literature, reading, writing, grammar, preparing research papers, or building vocabulary.
I have earned a B.A. in German, an M.A. in German, an M.Div. in New Testament Studies, an M.A. in Comparative Literature, and a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature. The universities I have attended include the University of Redlands, U.C.L.A., and the University of Southern California. I have over twenty years of experience in teaching all levels of English and German at the college level and have also taught high school and ESL at the Berlitz School of Languages. In addition, I did graduate work at the University of Heidelberg, Germany.
I have also worked in the business sector as a travel agent and as a marketing representative for a translation firm. I have taught business English and know how important the skills of writing and reading are in our current, competitive job market.
I would like to be able to help you gain a competitive advantage both for your livelihood and for life. Let me be your G.Y.M. instructor. The letters stand for Grow Your Mind.
