About David

I have been a high school English teacher in the Baltimore Metropolitan area for 20 years--teaching all grades and all levels. I am comfortable working with students from a variety of backgrounds, with different strengths and weaknesses. During my time as a high school teacher, I have helped students master basic grammar and essay writing skills and I have also aided students preparing for the PSAT, the SAT and Advanced Placement classes--both the AP Language and AP Literature test. I have experience teaching students grammar, vocabulary and essay writing skills. The type of essays that I have taught students to write include personal narrative, persuasive, comparison/contrast, division and classification, literary analysis, SAT essay and research papers--not to mention creative writing assignments.

In addition to teaching high school English, I have experience as a both a small group and a private, in-home tutor, helping students improve their writing skills, raise their grades and boost their SAT scores. My goal is not to give the students the answers, but to teach them the skills they need to write independently and at a high level. This process involves instructing students in brainstorming, organization, drafting, proofreading and editing.

I have a flexible, polite and patient demeanor and look forward to helping students achieve their academic and intellectual goals.
