About Dave

I'm offering tutoring services for students. My experience started from an early age in history and art.

I was educated at Fisher College.

As for teaching and student work:
Most times in a classroom students find it to be too big, too much, or can not feel comfortable to receive the information being taught by the teacher so tutoring can be a safe and wonderful way to have your student receive A's and B's by being with a relaxed and knowledgeable tutor that understands the teaching process and comprehension skills needed to bring out your students potential.

I also teach computer skills and trouble shooting. If you have any difficulty with your programs, or need something done by the computer feel free to contact me for my service.

Thank you,
Dave B.

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.

Career Development

My experience in career development has been a journey of interest as well as an experience mostly attained towards the area of human service and teaching groups of students in a classroom setting. My past Jobs have been not only for a living but also to refine my skills as a teacher/instructor in providing lessons and insight to those who wanted to learn. Formerly grounded in the para positions through the Boston Teachers Union and Other school systems I learned a large amount of classroom ability.

Working In Levels towards certification in teaching you learn about curriculum,student response and behavior and your own approach to the classroom for effective instruction. Career Development takes a willingness and a drive to want to excel in your given subject or trade.

English

In college I took Liberal Arts and did well in reading, english structure and english comp.After college I held an adults modern poetry group and studied the science of verse and meter.I love poetry and writing and art of poetry.

General Computer

In computing I have had 12 systems in 14yrs and know what's it like to be crazy frustrated and elated in times computing. breakthroughs and technology have been at lightning speed and a lot of people want to know what to do and how to do what they want on the computer.I can help. Operating systems such as IE and Firefox have given in themselves enough information to be able to realize what a browser can do to enhance your surfing time. Also programs, files, menus, lists, and computing have become much more sophisticated for results than need at times and most often when you know what tools you have to work with you can create a surfing pattern or habits that allow you to get what you need. trouble shooting is inevitable in computing especially with the registry portion of your hard drive and the functions of working your system for that's easy for you. I have experienced over the yrs the progression of computers starting out with a 386 base model and a box monitor with dial up 28.8 speed to the latest tower and flat screen on the market. I know that a lot can be learned by surfing reading and trouble shooting. let me help you.

Microsoft Word

I worked with Microsoft word for quite a while in the late 90's..I feel that it's a tool you cannot go without,as a word processor with templates to help you draft, create, write, do forms or documents in a convenient and timely manner.

Photography

I have experience in photography art and jpeg manipulation for digital art work. I have experienced ephemera and photo collage for photo manipulation and morphing techniques to enhance or create a desired image on the screen. Most of my digital work is taken from old photos in the city's from the 20's- 60's depending on the subject. I also have enjoyed and experienced digital photography on a subject inside and outside for the effect. Most of my enjoyment comes from cropping enhancing and morphing art photo work for a digital affect.

Psychology

My experience with people and the mind is vast,I have incredible insight and perception on a number of issues having to do with living and the human experience. My own experiences have taught me deep lessons and concepts for survival, love and a higher self.

Reading

As a student throughout the junior and high school level my reading was exceptionally fast,clear and precise. I was always called on to read in class,I to this day don't know why I figured growing up in my home we always read and I always went to the library for enjoyment and escape. Later on the comprehension came in and both reading and comprehension became one.

Special Needs

My experience in SPED classes provided me with the skills to interact and teach students in a closer and more detailed way. My first work assignment with the BTU/NBTU was in a ch 766 special needs class providing assistance to students doing there English and writing assignments. There's nothing better than being in a challenging class and learning right along with the students.
