About David


Bio

I became a certified ESL instructor in 2013, and tutored privately/assisted with conversation classes in Charlottesville before relocating to Sterling, VA, where I now work with two students through WyzAnt. My primary training is as a pianist/organist, and I have extensive teaching experience (both private lessons and college classroom instruction) with students aged 5-75.

I became a certified ESL instructor in 2013, and tutored privately/assisted with conversation classes in Charlottesville before relocating to Sterling, VA, where I now work with two students through WyzAnt. My primary training is as a pianist/organist, and I have extensive teaching experience (both private lessons and college classroom instruction) with students aged 5-75. I enjoy encouraging students in both disciplines; while the subject matter is different, the teaching process requires the same elements of patience, support, affirmation and positive rapport.

Tutoring can be arranged at nearby library, or some other convenient public location in the area. I am open to some travel, as well as the possibility of online tutoring.

In addition, I teach piano at two local music schools, and would be happy to add you to my roster. It's never too late to start...

I am enjoying my work with students in the Loudoun/Fairfax County area!

I am a very patient person, and enjoy teaching motivated students of all ages.

Knowledgeable tutor.

David tutored me in music theory and helped me earn a B on my Final Exam. I recommend him as a tutor. He is very knowledgeable in music theory.
