I am a former Fulbright Scholar and have taught and tutored students from different backgrounds, levels and nationalities for over 19 years. I love languages and fluently speak 8 of them. I took English, French and German in High School as majors and did French Linguistics and Bilingual studies (French and English) at undergraduate Level.

As a Fulbright scholar I took American Sign Language (ASL) classes to do graduate course work at Gallaudet University, Washington DC. I also worked as Principal and Language teacher at the Ephphatha Institute for the Deaf for 5 years. In addition, I hold a degree in Arts and Art History and have participated in many Art exhibitions.

I specialize in tutoring students in English (TOEFL), French, Sign Language and Fine arts (painting and drawing). My tutoring methods include working on speaking (pronunciation), vocabulary and writing. I make use of audio materials, pictures and videos to reinforce learning. I have a 12h cancellation policy and offer makeup classes.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to achieve your goals.

Excellent tutor

David is extremely personable and a good ASL tutor. He starts from where we are and then challenges us to improve. I've learned a tremendous amount in the brief amount of time he's worked with us and I strongly recommend him.

Mark, 14 lessons with David

Very kind and flexible

This was the first class we have so of course he listened to my needs and expectations about future classes. He was very kind, and we started to learn some base but important frases. I am looking forward to our second class.

Ahmad, 2 lessons with David

Great experience!

I have only good things to say about my first class with David. RIght off the bat there were "technical difficulties" with our connection. I was flustered but he wasn't. He kept at it till we were able to start the class. I found him to be very patient, positive and persistent (in repeating signs that I wasn't "catching") as I stumbled through my first class. He was very engaged in our ASL dialogue, showing me variations on several signs I'd forgotten and reinforced through repeat demonstration of signs I had forgotten. Really enjoyed our first class. Am looking forward to my next class!

Great Session for a First Timer

I've never used an online tutor before, but I was very pleased with my experience with David. He made me feel very comfortable and I left learning new vocabulary and feeling more confident. I am very happy that i decided to pursue this route and will definitely use again!
