Bio

I have taught hundreds of students in both group and individual settings. In these classes, I have helped students improve their understanding of English, Spanish, math, the SAT, and the ACT.

I have taught hundreds of students in both group and individual settings. In these classes, I have helped students improve their understanding of English, Spanish, math, the SAT, and the ACT.

I first started tutoring as a teenager helping my parents with the students struggling in the classes they taught. Through college, I tutored fellow classmates to passing grades in both English and Spanish. To this day, I continue on that course as a tutor and a full-time ESL professor at a private academy in VA.

My degree in English and Spanish education, my fluency in Spanish, and my experience in education makes me an excellent tutor for reading, writing, speaking and listening in either English or Spanish. My master's degree in Educational Administration has helped me understand education on a broader range of levels.

Since I have also worked with companies dedicated solely to SAT instruction, I have also learned some valuable secrets to helping students excel on this important exam. In SAT instruction especially, parents can view the tutoring as an investment because good SAT scores help students qualify for scholarships that can save thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars on college tuition.

Fantastic Tutor, Very Accomodating

David has been a fantastic Spanish tutor in my time seeing him. He has been very flexible in helping to find a time and location that worked for both me and him. David always arrived on time, prepared and knowledgeable about any Spanish topic we needed to cover. I enlisted David's tutoring through two college Spanish courses and it is thanks to his tutoring that I was able to understand the materials and pass both courses. I would highly recommend David to anyone looking for a good and reliable tutor.

SAT Tutor

My son met with David 4-5 times prior to taking the SAT. After meeting with him he felt much more comfortable and confident going into the exam. My only regret is not meeting with him a little sooner. I would highly recommend David for SAT prep.

Best Tutor!!

We hired David to help one of our employees learn how to read and the results were amazing. He was very patient and made sure that our employee felt comfortable with the whole process. I would highly recommend David if you are looking for a tutor.

Wonderful tutor!

David has worked with my daughter, helping her with her Spanish 3 class. She is finally beginning to understand Spanish after years of just getting by. He has taken the time to figure out exactly what she needs and she is making great progress. David is very patient and she feels very comfortable telling him when things are difficult for her. She has learned so much, and she enjoys going to her tutoring sessions. He is extremely knowledgeable and he is a great Spanish teacher.

Adaptable and Patient

David has made extra efforts to understand my son's needs and to prepare for his sessions. He is patient and persistent in his efforts to have my son do the work himself and thereby learn by doing. David is easy to communicate with and always provides good feedback on the lessons. I recommend him highly.
