David is so professional and well-prepared in all aspects for helping students be more easily able to connect with the language they're struggling with. I always appreciate the way in which he makes conversations productive and engaging. He covers from thought-provoking questions to small things in everyday experience while having me even sometimes forget about the fact that I'm talking to him in English, which is very comfortable and productive at the same time. I'm so thankful that he, as a language learner himself as well, helps me keep motivated in my long journey with English. Thanks, David!

Great lesson! David is an excellent teacher and I'm very grateful that he overtook this difficult job to teach me. He's very intelligent and knows a lot about politics. So, definitely the right guy to correct your academic essays.
