Writer, Musician, Poet, and Journalist

I frequently perform my poetry (and music) in public at SF Bay Area schools, elder homes, and cafe/restaurant poet readings. I also served my previous employer, Wells Fargo Bank, by giving speeches to employees about community service opportunities. As a result I have acquired good public speaking skills. Dave, born in Toronto, Canada, received his music education at the Royal Conservatory of Music. He began putting his poems to music and this led to his migration to California to seek recognition as a songwriter. He played with several music acts in the Bay Area in the 1970s/1980s and compose [more]

Language Arts and Literature Tutor

Most of what I tutor I use everyday in at least one of my many endeavors. My specialties are Language Arts: grammar, essay writing, literature, spelling, as well as time and task management. If I'm not taking in a new novel I'm jumping back into one of the classics (Lord of the Flies, Catcher in the Rye? ANYTIME.) I'm also a writer (fiction, nonfiction, screenplays and theater scripts - as well as cartooning!) but this keeps me pretty sharp in vocab, sentence structure, and original and e... [more]

Sessions Geared to Individual's Motivation and Learning Style

I am a published author and former newspaper reporter for the Concord (CA) Transcript. In addition to my blog I am also an avid reader and grammarian. The most important skill anyone can acquire, and the one almost ignored by most institutes of learning, is how to learn. Some emphasize the old-fashioned ?drill and kill? methodology while others latch on to every sort of new trend or fashionable system. In trying to reinvent the wheel or build a better mousetrap, they forget about that simple, universal, and time-tested concept: How to learn! Everyone learns in a different way and responds t [more]

Effective English, Writing & Logic Skills

For over 20 years, I have been teaching, training & tutoring in many different forms. Working in small groups and one-on-one, I love interacting with students, asking them questions & getting them to ask questions of their own. That give-and-take is where true learning really happens, but the great payoff comes when the student gets it ? when the bulb clicks on and the light flashes in their eyes. I also employ a modified EDGE method (Explain-Demonstrate-Guide-Enable), particularly with gr... [more]

I have a passion for writing and the many styles, and am able to explain whichever type is needed in detail. [more]

Recent grad with years of tutoring experience!

I am a strong believer in the notion that anyone can become whatever they want, as long as they are willing to put the time and effort to do so. People are not born smart, they work to become smart. That is my goal for my students: to teach them that they can also become better at something they might be struggling at. In high school, I did not do as well as I wanted to, so I did not get into the colleges I wanted to go to. I reflected and decided to go to community college to have a seco... [more]

You're Never Too Old

After receiving a grade of A in English Composition, my instructor asked me if I would be interested in tutoring. Once I agreed and completed several days of intensive training, I went on to successfully tutor for five semesters as a classroom tutor and two semesters as a Supplemental Instruction Leader. I was informed by one of my professors that one of my students went on to become a tutor. I was so afraid of English Composition, that it took me 45 years to go back to school. Once I made the decision and took the plunge into academic waters, I surprised myself by not drowning, but finding m [more]
