About David

David S., Ed.D. looks forward to earning your trust and helping you achieve your learning objectives.

While in high school David lettered in four sports and worked weekends as a bus boy in a hospital in Ann Arbor. After high school David worked for a year at Ford Motor Company on the assembly line. He soon realized he could not perform routine tasks for the rest of his working career. So he went to college and while in undergraduate school was drafted into the Army and served in Germany. After finishing undergraduate school and knowing he wanted to get a degree in physical therapy he went to Baylor University for his physical therapy education. After working as a therapist for a few years David went back to school to specialize in social policy planning. After working a few more years his career took him into a new developing state university (Florida International University) where he was an assistant dean and assistant professor. He soon decided he needed a doctorate in education if he was going to make education his career. David graduated with a speciality in curriculum development. A few years later his career pattern changed again and he found himself in the retirement and estate planning field. So he went back to college and obtained a speciality designation as a chartered retirement planning counselor(CRPC). All of these degrees were earned while David was working either full or part time.

David's degrees and designations are from the following universities:

Eastern Michigan University Bachelor of Science
Baylor University Certificate Physical Therapy
University North Carolina Master Public Health
Nova Southeastern University Doctor Education
College Financial Planning CRPC

David has earned the designation of Fellow in the American Public Health Association. He is a member of the Oregon California Trail Association, the Milan (Michigan) Historical Society and a life master in the American Contract Bridge League. His picture was taken on a tennis court in Sebastian. His other significant activities include running, swimming, bicycling and duplicate bridge. David is an avid reader of biographies and history.

David is the father of two children, four grandchildren and one great grandson. He is the oldest of five children and they get together every two years to learn more about their heritage and American history.

David is sure any person he tutors will find it to be a positive and rewarding experience. David will tutor in his home or in your home. However, there is one ground rule - one parent must be present during the tutoring experience and there are no exceptions to this rule.

David looks forward to earning your trust and helping you achieve your learning objectives.

Approved subjects

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.

American History

American history was a favorite subject in high school. I am an avid reader of Americans who have made a significant impact on our country. I, also, read great books on significant events that have shaped American history. I keep abreast of political events that have shaped our history and continue to shape our history.I have traveled in all 50 states and I am generally familiar with events that have shaped their history.

Public Speaking

I have an earned doctorate in education. I have been a professor at Florida International University. I have chaired many non profit organizations and conducted their meetings. I have spoken 100s of times in public. I will use teaching techniques that have been most useful for me in preparing for a speaking engagement. Students will practice in group setting with me.

Study Skills

I have graduated from high school and five universities while working either full or part time. I have been an adjunct professor at the University of Miami School of Medicine and Miami Dade Community College. I was an assistant dean and professor at Florida International University for seven years. I believe I am a role model and with a doctorate in education with emphasis on curriculum development, I believe I am qualified to assist most students achieve and maintain positive study skills/habits.
