About David

I worked as an ESL teacher, private tutor, yoga instructor and university administrator for a number of years. I enjoy helping people and have had the honor of doing so for several years in Japan, Australia and the USA.

Working with students from Kindergarten to post-retirement has shown me that the passion for learning and self betterment does not stop. My private and public teaching/administration experience have helped me focus in on a student orientated, customized approach to education.

I have studied Japanese since 2003 and lived in Japan after college for over 6 years (2008-2014). My work is currently done in Japanese where I am asked to do translations and interpreting. I also have JLPT N1 certification.

My major in communication dealt a lot with debate, speech giving/evaluation and public speaking. I have also acted as an MC for a number of events including weddings, school and work functions.

While living in Japan I taught basic fitness and yoga as a side job. I am not certified in yoga but I have experience teaching the basics to beginners. Swimming is a passion for me because I am an avid surfer and strong swimming skills are a great way to improve your surfing.

I enjoy teaching and working with different people to help them achieve their goals. The pursuit of bettering yourself is one I take seriously but believe should be enjoyed. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or comments.

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.

Public Speaking

I am confident that I can teach public speaking because my private and professional experience varies widely from sales presentations, student recruitment, group leadership, event MC, wedding toasts, eulogies and academic event speech giving. My experience started while studied public speaking and debate at Kansas University, earning high marks. Before coming to NYC, I was an ESL teacher and wedding minister in Japan where I utilized public speaking often.
