About David

Thank you for considering my candidacy in becoming a tutor for you or your child. I am filled with excitement and reverence at the prospect of helping people achieve their desired learning goals. I am currently a school principal and former high school teacher with specialized training in English Language Arts, Speech communication, theater, early and emergent literacy, among other areas. Having spent my education career in multiple school districts in the Fox Valley and Greater Green Bay, WI, area, as well as Naples, Florida, I have diverse experiences in many different settings that have proved to be an asset in my professional development. I truly believe every child can achieve success in school and beyond, some just need additional time and support to accomplish their goals. I look forward to being a leading advocate for the continued development of wonderful teaching and learning experiences for all children.
My background in communication arts and English has allowed me to gain experiences that augment my affable personality and ability to establish a strong rapport with people. A fundamental skill for citizens is the talent to effectively communicate, collaborate, and cooperate with multiple groups of people within a community. My training and familiarity with interpersonal, small, and large group communication is integral in accomplishing these goals.
I view my role in education to be more of a “calling” than a job. My foremost goal is to help students learn and develop their innate talents, particularly those students “who need us most”. Whatever I can do to be sensitive to the needs of students to ensure their growth and success is my greatest concern.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoy working with people. By remembering that we are here to help children be successful, we will always help them realize their dreams; and that is what is most exciting and satisfying about education.

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.

I have taught Sunday School for many years. I am proficient in Luther's small catechism and confirmed in the Lutheran faith, but attend non-denominational Christian church and Bible studies regularly through Celebration Church, Green bay. I have read the Old and New testament books.

Phonics

I am an early childhood principal. Currently I serve Pre-K and Kindergarten students in my school. I have coursework in early/emergent literacy, which includes phonics, phonemic awareness, and phonological awareness as base early literacy skills. I also use research and evidence-based instruction in literacy for intervention and enrichment on a regular basis in my school.

I have a degree in speech communication, have taught speech and drama at the high school level, coached speech and debate students for several years, and serve as an adjunct instructor for Concordia University.
