About David

Hello! My name is David. I am a licensed elementary school teacher and also an educational entertainer. I taught 2 years in inner city Memphis and I have been teaching in JAPAN from 2007-2013. In Japan, I use both verbal and non-verbal communication to educate my students. I am very good at math, reading, and social studies. My goal is to not only educate, but INSPIRE!
With my characters and music, I have performed in over 100 schools, on NBC, and in 5 countries!

I SPEAK JAPANESE! If you are Japanese and need a tutor to help you learn English, I can be your teacher!

I will be in the Bedford area beginning in March 2013 and I would love to help your student improve and excel!!!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an elementary teaching degree from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. I also taught 6th grade social studies in Memphis.
I obtained a teaching license in both Arkansas and Tennessee.
Please accept my request to be allowed to teach elementary level students.

Phonics

I have written and produced a music series teaching the basics of learning English for beginners. This music series is available in Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Spanish. I have taught phonics in over 20 schools in Japan in the last 5 years and I even participated in a seminar on effective teaching methods related to phonics.

Special Needs

I would like to receive certification to tutor students with special needs.

While acquiring my education degree at harding University, I also took classes to get my special education certification. I am one class shy of my certification.

In addition to this, I have 5 1/2 years experience of teaching special needs classes as I taught elementary and junior high English classes for special needs students the entire time I was teaching English in Japan.

Study Skills

I would like to tutor kids who need to improve their study skills.

I understand a lot of different learning techniques as I have learned Japanese in the last 5 years and I have also written an entire music series designed to help students learn English quickly through music.

While I was teaching in Japan, I learned many Asian techniques for teaching and learning Kanji (over 2000 required Kanji) through junior high school.

I also learned several different organizational techniques which help students retain a set amount of information in the most efficient way for their personal learning style.
