About Doug

Hello, my name is Doug. Magic is my hobby, but I've been a teacher and student. I taught English to junior high students in Japan for five years and did private tutoring there as well. I think learning should be fun as well as hard work. If you are unhappy, you won't enjoy studying, so I want to assure you that when we work together we will be focused and positive. (Maybe there will be a little time for magic as well!)
I am well-qualified to help you with English writing, especially grammar and structure. I can help you with basic math skills as well. I am also skilled at teaching English as a second language.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an Elementary School Teaching Certificate for Union County, New Jersey.

I also taught these grades - as well as Junior High School - in Japan.

English

I am a perfectionist when it comes to English writing, punctuation, spelling and grammar. Texting is fun but it takes away the important skills we all should embrace with the English language. I'll help you find the fun in traditional and proper English usage.

Public Speaking

I have been in front of the public many times.

When I worked at Radio City Music Hall I made the pre-show announcements - live, onstage - in front of 5,882 audience members.

I am a professional magician. I was President of the Society of American Magicians - Assembly 161 - the David Copperfield Assembly - for 5 years.

In Japan, I also coached Junior High School students in their annual speech contest.

I have been the director and MC for talent shows and magic shows.

Theatre

I won the Best Actor Award in Cranford High School. It was given to me by the Cranford Dramatic Club and I joined their organization and worked on numerous shows - onstage and behind the scenes for many years.

I studied acting at Rutgers - New Brunswick - where I acted in shows. I acted in a play with the Tokyo International Players.
