About Dave


Bio

In addition to my family, I have two strong passions: Public Speaking and History. I have been a public speaker for several decades with perhaps my most significant accomplishment winning the World Championship of Public Speaking from Toastmasters International. I was a history major at the Air Force Academy and I love helping people remember history and discovering the significance of past events.

In addition to my family, I have two strong passions: Public Speaking and History. I have been a public speaker for several decades with perhaps my most significant accomplishment winning the World Championship of Public Speaking from Toastmasters International. I was a history major at the Air Force Academy and I love helping people remember history and discovering the significance of past events.

There is one other thing I need to mention, I love to teach and coach others. I come from a family of educators and I have found helping others to grow and develop very rewarding.

If you want to learn math from someone who knows your pain and knows how to overcome your pain, I'm your guy. If you need to learn study skills from someone who had made all the mistakes and learned a better way, I'm your guy. If you want to find a fun way to learn history from someone who know how to tell a great story or if you want to learn how to speak from someone who has an exciting history, I'm your guy!

Subjects

Microsoft PowerPoint,

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have been using PowerPoint professionally for more than 10 years as a presenter. I produced hundreds of presentations and I have learned how to use PowerPoint to produce graphic pictures, to modify photos, and create close to movie effects. I also am a master at preventing the dreaded "death by PowerPoint".
Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I joined Toastmasters International where I competed against a field of approximately 25,000 others to earn the 1991 World Championship of Public Speaking. My many years of public speaking experience includes television, radio, and in front of audiences both large and small. Additionally, I have had Dale Carnegie Training and was consistently recognized as one of the top performers.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I have a wealth of experience with Elementary Math. I have tutored my own three children as well as other children learn simple ways to make sense of math. Some have actually said the words "Math" and "fun" in the same sentence. (NO, they did NOT say, "Math is not fun".)
Study Skills

Study Skills

I have both a BS and a MLA degree. In addition, I am a graduate of several military and civilian training programs. All of my course work has been completed while sustaining some time consuming duties. I had to learn study skills just for survival. I was once one of those students who did well academically without much effort. That is, until I attended the Air Force Academy. The course load and the other requirements had an enormous impact on my time. This is where I leaned how to make my study time count.

History

American History,

American History

I majored in history for my Bachelors Degree. I have also completed graduate course work in the History. Perhaps what makes me most qualified in the subject is that I enjoy history and study history for pleasure.
Government & Politics,

Government & Politics

In addition to having studied government and political science in school I have practical knowledge as well. I was the first High School intern in the state of California's legislature. I worked for Willie Brown who went on to become Speaker of the House and later Mayor of San Francisco. (The new Bay Bridge is named for him) I have also worked on political campaigns, organized political events, and kept current on political events. I have running for office on my bucket list.
World History

World History

I was a history major at the United States Air Force Academy and I remain interested in the value of history. I read and study history for relaxation and I believe that history needs to be taught in a manner that makes it an interesting experience.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I feel that I have an edge for helping young people grasp Algebra. I had to really work at it as a child myself and I have helped my 3 sons with their math work in the past. While I majored in history at the Air Force Academy, I also had many math and engineering classes that have prepared me to tutor my children and perhaps yours too.

Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have had sufficient college level math to qualify for a minor in engineering. Additionally, I am experienced in tutoring young people who are not comfortable with math and math facts. I feel it is far more important to understand the process than to just get the “right answer” and I coach students in a way that focuses on learning the process.

Professional and very patient

He taught me how to do good on interviews and how to show a person that your really interested on the subject there talking about. He also showed me how to make my resume look more interesting.

Sonia, 3 lessons with Dave

Able to connect with reluctant learners

Dave spent the time getting to know my son and a great relationship with him. My son is shy and hates math. Dave is the right person to turn things around for my son. He is so energetic and positive. He obviously LOVES to teach.

Valerie, 2 lessons with Dave

Highly Skilled and Recommended!

Upon first meeting Mr. Dave, I knew I had finally encountered an individual with unsurpassed skills and wisdom. I was impressed by his approach and practice of a philosophy, which is to reach and teach his students as a whole rather than as a subject. My son Nicolas who primarily struggles with math and organizational skills looks forward to every lesson with Mr. Dave. After each lesson he gains clarity and understanding. Nicolas is also very inspired by Mr. Dave's knowledge of history and its relevance to all things connected. He is steadily embracing Mr. Dave's philosophy to become more organized and disciplined with his studies, skills which will have a profound impact on his future. Nicolas, as well as I, are excited about his continuing lessons with Mr. Dave! Much will be learned and not forgotten! We are very fortunate to have crossed paths with an exceptional mind and person! I highly recommend him!

Diana, 19 lessons with Dave

Highly Recommended

Dave was always very patient and used many different types of activities and teaching strategies to get my children engaged in learning, which believe me, wasn't always that easy.

Rachel, 22 lessons with Dave

Very Thorough!

Our first test, after working with Dave two times a week for two weeks, rose 14 points! And my son passed the two areas, math and language, that we were really focusing on. Very impressive!
