About David

I am married to my college sweetheart and am the father of four college educated children. I have coached youth softball for 15 years and women’s flag football for 9. I am a tutor because I believe everyone has certain gifts. A coach or tutor can assist a young person use their skills and talent in achieving their goals. My goal is to be the “Merlin to the young King Arthur” in each of my students.
My role model is John R. Wooden, UCLA’s famed basketball coach. I practice his “Pyramid of Success” model: “Success is the peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”
