Greetings all! I'm David. I have a passion for learning and a talent for teaching that I hope to share with you! I am a true nerd of the world with boundless curiosity. Musician, Scientist, Cook, World Citizen, Adventurer, and all-around nice guy.
Me as a Teacher
I love to use humor to create a relaxing open space so that the student can succeed without fear, worry, or judgment. I've taught many different subjects (biology, classical music, research, global health, creative writing), but I enjoy teaching languages most because they have the most immediate and tangible payoff. Nothing brings me greater joy than seeing my students comprehend and master what they once thought impossible.
My lessons & teaching style
All my lessons are personalized to my student's needs. I particularly love teaching kids. My youngest student is 5 years old and my oldest is 75.

Best English teacher I’ve ever met. Fully engaged, with varied interests, open minded and cordial. All this makes David a fascinating interlocutor – you don’t take a class with him as a duty, but as another meeting with the person you like to talk to.

Taking classes with David has been a great experience considering my problem (I have dyslexia) and it has helped me to improve my English and to break down that wall that tormented me and frustrated me, now with his help, honestly it's more fun and I learn more.
David thank you for your patience and your help

David is a relatable person even though it was the first trial lesson with him. He was generous in suggesting what might works best for me. I would love to connect with him more on our next lesson.
