About David

I have taught English and Creative Writing to grades three through twelve. I have also tutored high school and college students to write papers on literature. Working with California Poets in the Schools, I have conducted poetry workshops in grammar schools, middle schools and high schools.

I approach students with an open mind, seeking their strengths and teaching them build upon those strengths. This approach helps students gain the self-confidence required to succeed with the subjective nature of writing and interpreting literature.

I encourage students to use their own experiences to relate to literature and get immense satisfaction when they begin to appreciate great writing on their own.

I am a writer who works from home and I have a reasonably flexible schedule. I enjoy working with students and watching them learn. This is why I am interested in tutoring.

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.
