About David

My name is Dave G., and I'm currently a graduate student enrolled at the Claremont School of Theology, working on an M.A. in Biblical Studies. This coming academic year, I will be teaching part-time at Xavier College Preparatory, with the intent to return full-time once I finish my master's. I am one of two recipients of the Trustees' Award at the School of Theology, a full scholarship that includes tuition, a monthly stipend, and an apartment on-campus; this is the highest scholarship awarded by the School of Theology. In 2010, I graduated from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. (with honors), where I double-majored in Philosophy and Theology. I have taught freshman and senior theology courses at Xavier College Preparatory for two years, and currently split my time between the desert and Claremont.

I am most interested in helping students forge their writing skills; even though I teach theology, my pedagogical focus centers around helping my students articulate themselves through the written word. As the college application season approaches, I am most interested in helping students brainstorm, draft, and edit their personal statements and college essays, which become increasingly important as college applications increase. A uniquely crafted and expressed personal statement helps an applicant make him- or herself stand out to the admissions committee. In addition to my writing skills, I have also spent two years as an interviewer for Georgetown, and can help students applying to colleges that require an interview shine in this area of their application process as well. In short, I am looking to tutor students who would like help with their reading and writing skills in addition to the essay component of their college applications.

I'm brand new to WzyAnt, so please excuse my lack of experience and ratings on here. Thank you for reading, and I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I majored in theology as an undergraduate, and am currently a master's student at the Claremont School of Theology, focusing on Biblical Studies. I currently maintain a 4.0 GPA, and have studied both Biblical Hebrew and Greek. Moreover, I have 2.5 years of experience teaching theology at the high school level.

College Counseling

I am an interviewer for my alma mater, Georgetown University, and am very familiar with the broad spectrum of private and public colleges and universities. I am an excellent writer and communicator; proof of this lies in my recently having recently won the top scholarship offered by my graduate school as a direct consequence of my personal statement and interview. I was a humanities major at Georgetown, and graduated with honors. I was accepted at a number of the nation's most prestigious institutions of higher education, and am quite familiar with the college application process.
