MY CREDENTIALS
I am a licensed teacher (K-6 Elementary education and 5-12 High School French) and an experienced tutor with a gift and passion for teaching and languages. I also have several years of experience as a preferred substitute teacher at several blue ribbon schools in Indiana.

I've a B.A. in French from UC Davis, teacher training in multicultural Education from CSU Sacramento, and a Masters in Education from Indiana University, South Bend.

Consistent with my education and my interests, my strength is teaching/tutoring English language arts (reading/writing), French, and ESL. I'm particularly sensitive to those who have challenges with these subjects and know how to work with you.

AVAILABILITY
I am available for tutoring in Davis and Sacramento. I can also tutor remotely. I'm often available between 9am - 9pm. (I am also a substitute teacher, so I may not be available some mornings and early afternoons. Ask me.)

Contact me. I'm here to help!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, yoga, live Classical and Jazz music performances, writing fiction, cooking (and eating) cuisines from a variety of countries, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

Nader, 1 lesson with Dave
Tutor responded:

Thank you, Nader for your feedback! Each of us comes to a learning situation with a wealth of knowledge. I was fortunate that you are a voracious reader and have a strong vocabulary. In addition, you clearly communicated your learning goal -- how to use a dictionary, from using guide words to help us find a word quickly to understanding how the dictionary shows syllabification, from learning the difference between and "entry" and a "definition" to knowing the abbreviations for the parts of speech. These are all things that will help you succeed as you pursue your education here in the US. Thanks for your hard work and kind words. I look forward to our next lessons, on your path to mastery of the English language.
