About David


Bio

I love teaching because I love to learn. In addition to my bachelor's degree in psychology and my master's degree in education, I have obtained credentials to teach elementary school (all subjects), K-12 science, and K-12 social studies. I have been an educator since 2001, and during that time, I have helped students of all ages and backgrounds to see their potential and work hard to achieve it.

I love teaching because I love to learn. In addition to my bachelor's degree in psychology and my master's degree in education, I have obtained credentials to teach elementary school (all subjects), K-12 science, and K-12 social studies. I have been an educator since 2001, and during that time, I have helped students of all ages and backgrounds to see their potential and work hard to achieve it.

My strengths and my passion are in the language arts and test preparation. Whether we are working on understanding symbolism in poetry or picking apart prefixes for SAT, GED, ACT, or CAHSEE test prep, my primary focus in on the growth of my students. To enhance this progress, I will assign homework after each lesson because short practice sessions, spaced out over time, are the best way to improve long-term learning. I will provide timely feedback on the homework, and offer follow practice work if necessary.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you become the learner you want to be.
