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.

Excellent language and arts tutor

Mr David was very patient and sincere language arts teacher. He taught my son once a week. My son LA grade and skills improved a lot. My David thoroughly understands kids needs, and takes efforts in teaching.

Great Tutor!

I've been with Mr. B for nearly two years and he's led me down a successful path. He helped me succeed in ACT writing and reading and gave me the confidence to read and question more writings. He's very flexible in scheduling and he's always there to give amazing advice. He know's his history like the back of his hand and is extremely versed in all sorts of writing. He's given me the confidence to succeed in college-level writing and beyond.
