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

ADD/ADHD

I possess an Education MSE, concentration in special education. the only additional state requirement is tech full time at a school to retain my certification.

Autism

I possess an Education MSE, concentration in special education. the only additional state requirement is tech full time at a school to retain my certification. Autism falls within my field and training.

Basketball

I have over 41 years experience playing basketball. I have played for my high school, junior high school and military C Co, 121 Sig. of 3AD stationed in Frankfurt Germany. I am 6'3", 195 pounds, and at at age 52, I still don't miss a free throw or a jump shot within 15 feet of that basket. Anyone can learn the mechanics of the game, but to be truly good at it takes heart.

Business

I possess a Business Administration BS. I have taken Accounting I, Accounting II, Marketing, Business Development. Macro and Micro Economics etc. I am also the CEO a new Import/Export company.

Chess

I am an intermediate level chess player. I have played the game since age 13, that's over 40 years of experience.

Dyslexia

Remediation of Dyslexia is one aspect of learning disabilities that I have been prepared to remedy. I have taught children who are Autistic, Dyslexic, unable to read and write. My professional training has prepared me to remediate learning disabilities of all types.

Elementary (K-6th)

My NYC certification was in Special education, specifically learning disabilities. I have taught grades 1 - 12 in the NYC public schools, specifically JHS 265 in Fort Greene Brooklyn. My training as a special education teacher is specific to grades K - 12 and remediation of learning disabilities.

Marketing

Marketing was a required course in attaining my Business Administration, BS. In at least two companies for which I worked in the past, those skills were are necessity in performing my job. in my present company, Globexports CARICOM Inc, I am responsible for all the marketing of our products to an international clientele.

Religion

I am an author of books on Metaphysics. I have extensive knowledge of of the Christian religion, having read the Bible (King James & Douay versions) from Genesis to revelation. I am also a student of the Hindua Bhavagad Gita, and the Muslim Koran. I am of philosophical mind, so I have also read portions of the Upanishads, Zend Avesta, and the Books of the Dead, specifically, the Tibetan, Egyptian and Hebrew.

Soccer

I was born in Trinidad and Tobago. In Trinidad— like Brazil, Argentina and other warm countries—football is not American football; it is soccer. I have played this game since I was knee high to a grasshopper— in other words, it is in my blood. To beat a defender takes practiced skill. To educate one's feet and body to know how to shake an opposing defender, and to switch acceleration and rhythm are talents that the smallest child where I grew up, knows how to do. To approach an individual with the ball, to pass them and leave them scratching their heads— thats what its all about.

Special Needs

I possess an Education MSE, with special education concentration. My primary training is to provide remediation for students K - 12, learning disabilities. I have been also trained to write IEP's for the special needs population, as well as to assess them.

Study Skills

I am an MCNY five (5) times dean's list recipient and my final cum. gpa is 3.8 rather than 4.0 because I transferred credits from my previous school SUNY at Stony Brook. In graduate school, out of 21 classes I have 19 A's and 2 B +. I have proven that I know how to study and I bring those skills to the table when I teach, teaching my students to do the same.

Track & Field

I have more medals and trophies from my high school track and field career than my mother knows what to do with. I specialize in the 100m, 200m, 4 X 100m relay distances. The mechanics of running is in my genes and it comes naturally. Strength exercises and endurance/stamina training can help with running; but if the person has a natural stride and the will to win, then that is something they can work with.
