About David

I have an MEd from Framingham State College. After having taught English/Language Arts for 37 years, I retired from teaching in June of 2015. Almost all of my career was at the middle school level although I have taught at the high school level as well. My former students have said that I have been able to explain things in a way that makes it simple for them to learn. Many of these students have expressed surprise that learning has actually become fun. Over the years, thousands of my students have developed a great understanding of the mechanics of the language. My students have used their increased understanding of English grammar to improve their writing and speaking. They have even become such experts in the proper use of the language that they have started to correct mistakes their friends and family members make in their written and spoken English. In addition to improving writing and grammar skills, my students have become perceptive readers who are successful in analyzing assigned literature. I have an MEd from Framingham State College.

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.

Grammar

I was an English/Language Arts teacher for my 37 year teaching career. I have developed many excellent strategies for teaching students about the mechanics of the English language.
