About David

I am a local professor of theology and I love the Bible! My knowledge of ancient history, particularly the first century, is my area of passion. I am also quite accomplished in the areas of ancient biography and rhetoric. I love to teach and I am gifted at communicating ideas to all levels of students.

Beyond these areas of professional training, I love music and I have played and studied music theory and guitar for over 2 decades. I have studied musical styles from classical guitar to blues. I am also particularly good at music theory— an unusual characteristic for a guitar player!! I play electric, folk, pop, rock, mo-town, fusion and blues and I can work with you to figure about almost any piece of music you want to learn how to play.

I love history! I think that there is so much to learn from the past that we can apply to the present. I am particularly captivated by the virtuous leaders of the past and what we can learn from great men and women and their lives. I am always learning and can take your knowledge of history to a new depth and level of understanding.

I can work with all ages and help people mature as a musician. I am a guitar player/musician who can help you advance beyond the I, IV, V, and relative minor 7 chords. I love all forms of music from all time periods. I am also gifted at music theory and it's application to guitar and songwriting in different genres and forms of music.

I love to laugh and I can make any learning experience enjoyable and downright funny (even history!?). It's not so much the jokes, its finding humor and joy in life and the stories of the past. Contact me through email to set up an interview.

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.

Classics

My interests in ancient literature began with my studies of ancient rhetoric. I wanted to understand how ancient writers used literature to instruct the reader. I studied ancient history and Biography in order to understand Luke Acts. I have read every major ancient historian among the Greeks and Romans from Herodotus to Tacitus. I have read ancient biography from Isocrates and Xenophon to Plutarch. I defended and earned my PhD in 2012 and I have taught college level instruction since 1998.

Greek

My PhD is in New Testament and I have studied Biblical Koine Greek since 1994. I am equipped to tutor Biblical Greek at the Beginning and Intermediate level. I typically work with Mounce Greek systems and lectures to tutor students.

Guitar

I have studied multiple styles of Guitar from classical to blues. I completed my music degree at Hope International University. I studied classical guitar at CSUF in connection with my BA in music ministry. My studies include choral conducting, music theory (jazz and classical) and enough piano and voice to be dangerous. I have played guitar since 1977 and I am currently serving on a worship team at my church. I led children's worship for 12 years and I love teaching children.
