About David

Greetings! I have spent the past 20+ years working with students of all ages and representatives of over 70 countries around the world. I have also spent many sessions aiding people job-seeking that have been displaced, in transition or career-changing. My style is very elastic, and in individually assessing where each person seeking assistance is at in their process, I am able to fruitfully tailor lessons, provide positive stewardship and administer successful advice for positive progress in each person's educational and career path! My Master's degree is in Career Development and Multi-Cultural Counseling Psychology and I have made this a life-long experience now, helping individuals achieve their goals, from simple reading/arithmetic/writing, to full-fledged, career development, interview preparation and self-assessment! As a WyzAnt tutor, my experience and successful techniques combined with the WyzAnt resources can give a very strong launch for your goals to be reached. I look forward to working with you! Please contact me with any questions and if interested in acquiring experiential and timely assistance that is of comprehensive and individualized quality, not to mention, having a little fun in the process too...!

My best,
cheers.

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.

Career Development

I have a Masters Degree in Career Development & Counseling Psychology from the University of Massachusetts. I have been employed by and working with students of all ages for more than 20 years, inclusive of Mount Holyoke College, Smith College and the University of Massachusetts.

College Counseling

Hello. I have an M.Ed in Career Development and counseling Psychology and have worked in higher education, in this capacity, for almost 20 years. I have taught numerous workshops on a variety of subjects, advised and counseled, literally, thousands of college students for a variety of different career paths, personal/interpersonal issues, and developmental stages in their various college experiences.....

Thank you.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's Degree in Education, Career Development and Counseling Psychology. I have worked with students of all ages, from elementary through college and beyond. Also, being the parent of two daughters, recently of the ages mentioned and still in elementary themselves, between homework, parent meetings and involvement with their school and program, much of this learning stage is fresh and right in my purview as of the moment....

Marketing

My Associates and Bachelors degrees are with a focus on Marketing & Business Management. I have applied marketing principles in my work for years and never forget the marketing term; 'gotta sell the sizzle not the steak!'

Microsoft Windows

I have been using Windows platforms since the mid-1990s, from Windows 95 to present Windows 7 and now 8. I have had strong knowledge of each and every iteration of Microsoft Windows for the past 18 years.

Photography

I have been a commercial photographer since high school. I have several clients and used to shoot b&w and chromes in both 35mm and medium format. I am now completely digitally oriented. I have many works published that are combined photographic exposes along with travel-related writing.

Public Speaking

I have taught workshops and seminars on public speaking at the higher-ed level. Having worked in education for 20+ years, being in front of an audience has been part of my daily existence. I have spoken and presented to audiences, large and small, and teach, counsel and train a variety of people on public speaking and presentation.

Study Skills

I have a Master's Degree in Education: Career Development and Counseling Psychology. I have mastered good study techniques and processes by necessity to get through the levels of education I have attained.

I am an avid tennis player and was a member of my high school's tennis team. I was the #2 player of our team. Preferred singles tennis.

I have been designing websites since 1995. I write the html and/or use a content creator such as Dreamweaver/Firefox and other such tools. I have extensive knowledge in Photoshop too and use CS5 as my current platform.
