Excellent Tutor

David helped my son prepare for a Spanish test and quickly developed an excellent rapport with him. His teaching approach works very well to reach teenagers and help them understand the topic at hand.

Daniel, 2 lessons with David

Far exceeded expectations

We took a chance using Wyzant and hired David. He is incredibly smart and patient and kind. Truly one of the most incredible tutors, and people, I have ever met.

Thank you very much for the positive review, Kim-Marie. It was a pleasure to know and serve you.

Excellent teacher!

Prof. David left a smile on my son’s face by the time they were done with the first tutoring session. He turned a reluctant Spanish 2 student into one that’s finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!

David saved us!

We really needed someone to review a letter to a prospective French host family on a rush basis. David was able to help us with very short notice. His edits were excellent and we really appreciate his help!

Super knowledgeable Spanish Tutor

My son asked me to find him a Spanish tutor since the Spanish at his school has become more difficult. I was so lucky to stumble on David's profile on Wyzant. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and teaches well. His background at UCLA and his teaching credentials in foreign languages at UCI are impressive. He can pinpoint exactly what you need to improve on. My son was so happy that he asked to have David every week!

Grace, 15 lessons with David

Great teacher. Very knowledgeable and helpful.

David is very patient with her 14-year-old son who is just learning French. He’s helped a lot and has already improved his grade in just a couple sessions

Brook, 4 lessons with David

Most productive first session!

David taught my son how to organize his thoughts in outline format prior to taking on the task of writing an essay. After only one tutoring session, he has helped my son focus his efforts and thoughts on paper. I saw a huge improvement in my son's confidence in his ability to respond to an essay prompt. David was patient, easy to understand, highly intelligent, punctual, and flexible with scheduling the tutoring session. My son looks forward to working with David again in future tutoring sessions. Thank you David!
