About Dave

I tutor in Spanish and Art (painting, drawing and some crafts!). With a major in Spanish (and Accounting) and as a former Peace Corps Volunteer in Costa Rica from 2006 to 2008, I speak, read and write Spanish fluently and am bi-cultural, as my wife is Hispanic as well. During my time there, I worked with all age groups teaching English, Art, and business, from kindergartners to adults! I love helping students to learn language, as it is a great way to bring the world closer together.

Additionally, I am a lifelong Artist and have worked on custom fine art commissions since 2008. I've led art workshops and classes for youth in Northern Virginia and love to teach a variety of skills, including painting, drawing, making your own canvas, and more!

I have over 10 years of professional Accounting experience in non-profit, private and government settings. My responsibilities have covered a wide scope of accounting skills, including budgeting, forecasting, financial reporting, payables, receivables, general ledger and journal entries, reconciliations, payroll, and more.

Not only do I have a degree in Spanish, but I lived for over two years in a small rural village in Costa Rica as a Peace Corps Volunteer from 2006 to 2008, where I was completely immersed in the Spanish language and Central American culture. I also studied abroad in Seville, Spain while I was in college, and married into a Hispanic family.

Art is my passion! I am a lifelong Artist and love to help build students skills in painting (watercolors, acrylics, oils, gouache, etc.), and drawing! I've put on solo art shows and have been working on fine art commissions for at least 10 years.

I look forward to connecting with you, teaching and learning! As a Daddy of two young boys and with lots of working experiences with kids, I am comfortable with all age groups, from young kids to adults!

Painting

Learn how to use watercolors, acrylics, oils and more, as well as how to paint both in a realistic and impressionistic style!
