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

Public Speaking

Public speaking has been an integral part of my life for over 25 years. From well paid modeling jobs in New York City when I represented consumer brands like Levi's Silvertab Jeans or Close-Up Toothpaste to being invited to speak at human rights rallies and HIV clinics, the etiquette and techniques of my education in public speaking have propelled some would be ordinary occasions into the realm of the unforgettable. Competent communication,competent leadership, mentoring, motivating people, encouraging creativity and philanthropy are just some of the rewards in this service of giving. When The National Speakers Association acknowledged my essay writing with their highest award of the year in 2007 I could not have been more humbled.

Reading

Reading is defined as the action or practice of reading. Along with that are the interpretation, comprehension and pronunciation of words and letters. Literacy, literary knowledge and understanding text are the fundamentals and foundation of every subject, topic and realm of study in our world. The importance of having the intellectual facilities to decipher what is read and to voice that, in any occasion, cannot be measured in monetary increments. It is indeed priceless.

SAT Reading

The SAT Critical Reading portion of the exam is an analysis of one's ability to understand and answer questions PRECISELY, based on a prior passage given. The student must focus on relevant and outstanding words, phrases and points of reference. Read slowly and intently, reviewing as needed. Vocabulary is crucial for two words may be good choices to answer the multiple choice question but you must choose the best ONE. As far as the essay goes, there will be a prompt. I strongly suggest using examples from life experiences, a favorite topic you enjoy reading and/or researching or something in current affairs that you feel passionate about to express in your essay. Avoid religion and politics at all costs. Make a clear thesis statement, make your point(s), allow for opposing views and come full circle with a closing statement or paragraph that bolsters your position.

SAT Writing

The essay portion of the SAT is designed to determine whether a student can develop a meaningful essay on the spot. Twenty-five minutes is given to develop and explain your point of view on the issue presented on the test. This is called a personal essay. The writer can use examples from their studies or personal experience bank or both. Here is the chance to distinguish yourself. Insiders tip: making a withdrawal from the personal experience account may not bring forth the happiest memories, but through your essay writing, it's about detailing what happened that brought about change.

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.
