About David

I am a doctoral candidate at Purdue, specializing in language testing. I have taught and tutored students of all ages and backgrounds in the US and China. I have a passion for teaching and learning. I love to teach, because I live for that moment when the light bulb comes on and I can see that the student understands the material.

I love to help students meet their goals whether they be long term academic success or just scoring high on college entrance exams. I know from experience that before you can do what you are truly passionate at in life you often have to master the fundamentals. I understand what it takes to succeed academically, because I have so much experience in that domain.

In the words of Confucius,
"Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand."

I believe in learning by doing. I help students set goals and then break those goals down into manageable objectives. Making the complex understandable means breaking difficult concepts down into manageable pieces and putting the pieces together. This is how I tutor math.

I have always loved language. I learned Spanish as a high school and college student by reading great works of Spanish literature and speaking to native Spanish speakers. I earned my bachelor's degree in Spanish. I teach Spanish as communication with a purpose. While learning grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation require independent study, they must be practiced in a certain context. This is what I learned as a master's degree student in Teaching English as a Second Language.

I have taught English as a second language for four and a half years now, tutored English for two years, and tutored Spanish for one year. I have taught writing, listening, speaking, and reading.

I look forward to hearing from you. I encourage you to contact me to schedule lessons!
