About David

Hello! Education has always been a high priority. My formal education includes a B.A. in history and a PhD in ethics. Each year of my adult life I have taken courses to keep my mind alert and my knowledge growing. I have done much writing for newspapers and periodicals. Currently I am researching and writing toward publication about people who have influenced me.

In terms of English I am competent to help in vocabulary, proofreading, public speaking, grammar and in structuring an essay or report. With literature I possess wide knowledge of modern fiction and poetry.

I have conducted study on levels from youth to young adult classes, to area-wide adult education, to university courses. My career experience in working one-on-one with persons gives me background in how to instruct and encourage a student. In such a relationship I am able to be clear about expectations and patient in the process.

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.

Public Speaking

Public speaking characterizes my career. My education included public speaking as a candidate for student body president. In seminary I practiced delivering a homily aloud. In the ministry for decades I have delivered well-honed messages to congregations, even as I did yesterday at The Terraces of Los Gatos. Thus, I pay close attention to speakers in their bodily delivery, word choice, vocal inflection, etc. I possess the education and experience to assist a your person in this area. My formal education includes a B.A. in history and a PhD in ethics.
