About David

I have a Multiple Subjects-Life Teaching Credential. I have taught for the Los Angeles Unified School District as a full time teacher as well as a substitute teacher. I have tutored students for the past seven years at all grade levels. This tutoring has included help with homework, special projects, reading, writing, and math.

I can provide current references upon request. I work with students of all levels, abilities, and motivation.

I care about my students and make myself available for questions or problems that occur during the week. I have good communication skills and get along well with parents and students.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

ADHD

I have worked with special ed students for many years as a substitute teacher and home tutor. Many of these students are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. My wife has ADD and works in the public schools, so I am particularly aware of the issues surrounding ADD and education. I use techniques of allowing for movement and breaks, as needed, when working with ADD/ADHD students.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Multiple Subjects-Life Teaching Credential.

Phonics

I have worked in the LAUSD at the elementary school level. I have been trained in Open Court Reading, which is a language program that incorporates phonics skills. Additionally, I have used the "Hooked on Phonics" program with my son along with several other of his peers. Phonics skills are an essential part of reading and writing developments. I am well versed and well qualified to incorporate a good phonics base to a reading and writing language arts program.

Special Needs

As a substitute teaacher for LAUSD, I have spent countless days subbing in special ed classrooms of all types. I am extremely familiar with IEP's and the IEP process. Additionally, my wife works as an SLP in the school system with many special needs students; I have learned much through her background and knowledge.

Study Skills

There are many things I do to help a student develop good study skills. Examples include: having a consistent time and place to study, planning what needs to be accomplished, breaking tasks down into smaller tasks, keeping a records of tasks needing to be accomplished to view accomplishments, having supplies handy, allowing for breaks, getting enough sleep, and encouraging exercise are just a few examples of how to develop good study skills.
