About David

I tend to have a gregarious nature when I'm vis-a-vis with a student which is why I incorporate individual conferencing in the curriculum I've established in my college classrooms on campus.

I'm friendly but firm, and although some students have initially found my pedagogical style somewhat daunting; in the end, I get results, and this is what most of my students ultimately come to appreciate and for which they, in the end, thank me. I've come to know this after having gone on "rate my professor" dot-com to see what my Salem State University students actually thought of me.

It's accessible to the public, so naturally, anybody interested in hearing about my teaching-style from somebody unbiased, then that might be a relatively enlightening data-source.

I possess a strong aptitude in lit-studies; essay writing; history; poli/sci; and due to my understanding and recognition of Greek-&-Latin roots, my vocabulary is more expansive than the average bear.
I've been tutoring since my undergrad years, and practiced my student teaching at Emerson College back during my graduate study years, and then went on to teach writing and literature at various institutions of higher ed in the area. I still teach college courses till this very day, and I also currently tutor high school students at Newburyport High.

I work best with jocks and veterans, but generally have good rapport with most of the human race.
