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...

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.

Great Tutor

I had only spent few hours with David to work on my 2 transfer application essays but he really 'saved my life'. David is very professional and knowledgeable, he knows what admissions officers want to see from your essays. Since I did not have much time to meet with him, he also helped me editing my essay via email till the last minute when I submitted my essay. I would love to recommend him to all of you, he is a very nice and humorous gentleman!

Great Tutor

I had David tutor my teenage daughter on SAT Math and English. My daughter was very satisfied with the lessons she had with David. She feels that he is patient to let her work through the questions and that he guides her rather than giving the answer himself. She feels that he is very knowledgeable with the topics and strategies to help her when she gets stuck. I highly recommend him for SAT coaching.

Very patient

Very patient tutor. Despite my rustiness, he did help me with the very basic formulas needed for math. Also helped with verbal quite well. Also gave valuable knowledge concerning the GREs, the work field, and general knowledge. Very understanding. I recommend.
