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.
