About David

I have been a teacher and writer for over 15 years. My specialty is writing and English, as well as leadership coaching. I was a teacher in Japan for 3 years. For the last 14 years, I've been operating my own teambuilding company. I believe in that teachers should allow students to make their own discoveries, rather than being told what to do. Call it an experiential approach. I also believe that a tutor is also an "adult mentor", which means that our job is to model responsible behavior and communication skills.

I have a BA in English Literature from Pomona College and have written many, many articles. I am a good public speaker and well traveled. I also have a passion for professional sports, books, movies and I enjoy playing volleyball.
