HS Spanish IV Honors

David is EXCELLENT! My daughter said she had more clarity in one 1.5 hour session than she’s had all school year (and she claims her school Spanish teacher is great). We will definitely use David for future Spanish needs!

Lisa, 1 lesson with David

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.

Tutor responded:

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!

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

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

He taught Spanish. He is very engaging, patient, knowledgeable and helpful. He is a great tutor. He knows his material very well. He comes well prepared for lessons. When you need help he will try his best to accommodate you.

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

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!

Wonderful

David has been tutoring my son for two weeks and it is absolutely helping. He is extremely accommodating and flexible on learning styles.

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

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
