About David

I'm a 42 year old Librarian who has been involved in education for most of the last 16 years in one way or another. In the Library I currently run the homework help program, having experience in tutoring elementary school kids in English and mathematics as well as training high school tutors to do the same. I have experience with dealing with common core and the computer software that the children are using in the classroom and have designed coursework for parents to engage their students in both tutoring and use of the computer.

Aside from working in the library I taught in a secondary school for four years, grades 7 through 12. I have taught pre algebra up through geometry in the classroom. But as my primary subject in college was English literature my primary class work included English literature and composition as well as SAT prep classes.

I love working with kids and feel like this has been my calling. Helping children see things in a way they never have before is amazing. It's one of the most rewarding jobs I could imagine having.

I taught high school English literature for most of four years, developing curriculum and helped put together material for the accreditation committee. The school I taught did receive WASC accreditation. I also developed honors course work for the kids.

I am available on weekends and evenings. Please feel free to contact me anytime and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

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.

CBEST

I worked for four years as a high school English and Math teacher at a private school. I passed the CBEST myself with high marks and am familiar with all three sections of the test: reading; mathematics and writing. To be honest I never felt like anything in the test was above 10th grade material, even in the writing section. I know from speaking to many people that they struggle most with developing an essay in the writing section. It is a basic five paragraph essay format with an introduction and thesis statement, three supporting paragraphs and a conclusion. I taught English literature for four years so this is something I can work with through practice in helping people complete the CBEST. If you need my own personal score or further evidence I can provide it as needed.
