About David

I'm a Brown University graduate with a B.A. in History, a teacher and private tutor with 8 of years experience working with students in English, History, Latin, Math, and Spanish. Most recently I taught a freshman class in composition and rhetoric at U.S.C. while concurrently pursuing my own master's degree in creative writing. I enjoy working in many different subjects, but teaching writing is my passion. I love to help students move past the fear and anxiety of writer's block, to show them how to structure an argument or a story, and to watch them arrive at a deeper level of comprehension via the process of writing.

My firm belief is that the best tutors work themselves out of a job. I aim to impart successful learning strategies to my students, building their confidence and aiding them in their journey to become independent, active learners.
