About David

My passion for both English and History have been with me for years. During my time attending Rider University I focused my studies towards these two fields, achieving a Bachelor of Arts in History with minors in English and Political Science. While a student there I earned placement on the National Dean's List.

After completing my undergraduate program, I studied education for middle and high school and now carry teaching certifications in New Jersey for both English and History. I have taught at the middle school level for regular classes and tutored in both an after-school program setting and one-on-one. Some of the most rewarding times in teaching is finding just the right way to convey an elusive bit of content that can connect with a learner. That spark, that "ah-ha!" moment immediately makes the time worthwhile for both the student and myself.

A quality environment for learning is always important. I encourage prospective students to choose an appropriate atmosphere in which to study, such as a residence, library, or other location that allows for concentration on learning away from distractions. Parents and guardians are always welcome to join in my sessions as well. Learning and the expression of the ideas can be a collective experience.

I look forward to hearing from you and having the privilege of working together for your learning interests!
