Come learn the secrets of razor-sharp writing from an Ivy League-educated professor who has taught over 10,000 students in high schools and colleges across New York City. My work has been published widely in places like The Guardian, Politico, and the Chronicle for Higher Education, and my films have been screened around the world. I've been honored by the New York Times, and the Smithsonian Museum for my work in the classroom, in magazines and journals, and on the screen.

Whatever your level and whatever your goals, I can give you the tools to get there. I have decades of experience helping with college admissions essays, college-level papers, script doctoring and editing, and teaching composition and public speaking. I will help you make your ideas shine, from brainstorming to final polish, and give you the secrets professional writers use daily to help take the fear out of everyday writing. A few sessions with me and you won't need a tutor ever again.

I've taught everything from First Year Composition to Advanced Screenwriting, Writing for Science, and Cross Cultural Literature Courses. Wherever you are with your writing -- from deathly afraid to out-of-control -- that is where I'll meet you, with one goal in mind: making your writing great.

Film

I've produced, directed, and edited over 15 projects that have been celebrated internationally. My scripts have been adopted as the primary shooting texts for the New School's Film 2 class. I have full expertise on Avid Editing Software, have taught scores of sections of Screenplay Writing, and Adobe Creative Cloud has used me as a content expert for their on-line tutorials.
Video Production

Video Production

From script to screen I've produced films that have been screened internationally and added to the permanent archive of the Smithsonian National Museum. Music Videos, Short Films, Features, Web Series, and Industrial/Commercial Applications, I've overseen productions from a wide-range of talent, and taught production to students in scores of sections of Art of Film at the college level. From budgeting, shot lists, to running a set; from pre-production to final editing in software including Avid, FCP, and After Effects, I've taught it all -- and been invited to speak at the New School and NYU to help students across a broad range of abilities. I've so much experience teaching young film students that Adobe has tapped me as a content expert featured in their tutorials on their Creative Cloud service.

An amazing teacher

A great teacher is difficult to find. I think I’m lucky to have connected with David as my writing tutor. He is a knowledgeable professor. He has a solid background in writing and deep teaching experience. With his guidance, I have embarked on the journey of professional writing two weeks ago. He has helped me discover the secrets of writing techniques, raise awareness of the mistakes I often make, increase my interest and passion in writing. The journey will continue, and I believe my writing will reach to the next level very soon.
