Personal Description:

My name is David , I am 28 years old and a writing tutor. I'm available to teach elementary and high school, as well as post secondary students. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from York University. I work part time as a tutor, and am working towards building my own small tutoring company. During warm weather periods I am self employed as a gardener. I love tutoring because it allows me to pass on knowledge to help people empower themselves and improve their lives. I like to work with students who are self-motivated, have a strong work ethic, and know what they need. I want to be part of their process towards successful educational attainment.

My rate is $15/hr for online lessons and I'm available to meet at or near my home near Yonge & Steeles. If you wish for me to come to your home you will have to commit for classes longer than 1 hour.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring part time since the age of 21 both on a volunteer basis and for money. To my best estimate, since then I've accumulated 713 hours of paid tutoring experience and have been keeping track of this accumulation for the last two years. My experience has mainly been with tutoring IELTS, ESL, and remedial math.

I'm most comfortable with basic math tutoring and writing tutoring at any level. I have thousands of hours of experience writing content, editing essays (primarily experienced in this), and helping people with work documents (resumes, cover letters). I can be quite resourceful if you bring me written work that you'd like feedback on.

I also have a background in marketing given that I've been self employed for a long time. If you are someone looking to expand your business marketing, I offer this form of tutoring consultation as well at the same rate ($15/hour).

I am self employed, so I understand the importance of good customer service. I will work hard to get you the results you need.

I can provide testimonials, references, website, wordpress, and YouTube links after you purchase my contact information from FirstTutors.

Do not ask me to contact you before you pay FirstTutors for my contact information

I take payment for classes upfront before tutoring begins, and I accept paypal and interac e-transfers for payment for online classes.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring ESL is provided below:

1) a recap of assigned homework (links to grammar and vocabulary readings/exercises as well as an article/YouTube video assigned to be read or watched prior to the class (5 minutes)
2) we read part of the assigned article together, I correct your pronunciation of certain words and explain ideas that are unclear as needed (10 minutes)
3) we discuss the article, I make no vocabulary corrections, we simply talk about the topic (10 minutes)
4) you answer a question about the article, and I transcribe your answer word for word. We then go over the transcription and I ask you to edit it to an acceptable written paragraph. Once you've completed your editing, I will revise the writing by underlining and then correcting errors. As soon as I point out an error, I will search Google for a link relating (not always directly but whatever I can find on short notice) to the error. Reading these grammar readings is your homework for next class. (up to 20 minutes)
5) We read part of one of the grammar articles together and I answer any questions you may have or assign a new reading if I don't understand the concept myself (10 minutes)
6) The last part of the class is a recap: were you happy with the class? are there any improvements to the class structure you'd like to make? what will be the topic to discuss for next class, you decide and I find an article.
