Before applying to college, I scored in the 93% on the ACT among all high schoolers in the nation. I was highly successful as an undergraduate biology and Spanish double major at Virginia Tech University. During my years at college I worked as a substitute teacher in grades K-12 for three years. After working at a few local schools teaching students Spanish, biology, chemistry, computer science, math, and English, I was offered a full-time teaching position. At the time I had another job and was not able to commit to the position; however, I feel confident that I am capable of teaching a breadth of subjects and that my teaching experience will ensure that the subjects make sense to each student.

I am currently working in an emergency room and consequently work shift work; therefore I can be available almost any day of the week with some advanced notice. I would love an opportunity to work with you, your child, or your friend in whichever subject he or she feels requires the most attention.

All the best,

David

Biology

I have always loved learning biology and understanding the reasons why nature behaves the way it does. I graduated from Virginia Tech University with a 3.7 in biology. Over the years, I developed some helpful mnemonics and fun ways to learn even the more complicated biology lessons. I have taught high school students in biology, human anatomy, general chemistry, and physics as a college student. I would love an opportunity to work with you, your family member or a friend.

Golf

I have enjoyed playing golf for my entire life (24 years). Last summer, I had a goal to break 80 and ended up shooting a 78. I consistently shoot in the low 80s and feel confident that I could improve the game of beginner golfers up to above-average golfers.

Macintosh

I have owned Macintosh/Apple products for the past decade, including: iPods, iPads, iPhones, Macbook Pros, and iMac desktops. I have the ability to navigate all applications and websites by using command functions on the keyboard without once touching the mouse pad on my macbook pro. I have become adept with many iPhone and iPad applications and am confident that I can help beginners learn to maximize their productivity and potential with Macintosh products. I also feel confident that I can help the average user learn how to allow Macintosh products help better organize their lives.

Reading

I have always enjoyed reading ever since I had a great reading teacher in Kindergarten. I also have proven success in the subject. On the ACT, I scored in the 93rd percentile largely due to my reading comprehension performance. More recently, on the reading comprehension section of the MCAT, I scored in the 87th percentile among all pre-medical students in the nation. My techniques are clear and effective, and I am confident that I would make an impact on your child.

Spanish

I taught myself Spanish the summer after freshman year of college. I then tested into the most advanced Spanish class at Virginia Tech the fall of my sophomore year. After my sophomore year, I created an immersion program in Costa Rica and spent two months living with only Costa Ricans, learning the language and working in a hospital. After returning from Costa Rica, I tested out of all of the Spanish oral proficiency classes and was able to earn a minor in Spanish shortly thereafter. I love the language and still incorporate it into my job every day. I am comfortable with the difficult conjugations and more importantly, am comfortable teaching them. I would love an opportunity to work with you, your family or a friend to strengthen your/their language skills.
