Information About David - Reading teacher - (43 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated David:
A former principal of a group of colleges in charge of the academic side, I have been teaching for more than 30 years. I am also someone who has learned other languages and know what is required psychologically and linguistically in language acquisition whether it is for a first language, a foreign language or as a second language. No matter which situation you find yourself in I can help you rapidly acquire the tools to learn your chosen or needed language.
I have taught both students and teachers all over the world and have set up, owned and taught in schools in Brasil and Morroco. Although I have taught at almost all levels, my greatest experience has been teaching young people. Nevertheless, I like to teach people before others MIS-teach pronunciation including stress, rhythm and intonation… although I do enjoy undoing mis-teaching/learning too.
I truly believe learning should be fun and as I really like to teach bring bags of enthusiasm to the learning situation. This is usually infectious and makes learning fun and productive. I always remain learner focussed and do what needs to be done. If you put yourself in my hands you will feel you are finally getting somewhere with your learning! I enjoy remedial teaching too.

He is a knowledgeable man and very patient and encouraging. My son is a quiet boy, but has felt comfortable with David. He has enjoyed his tutorials and as a result his confidence has grown in this subject.
Thanks to David Andrey managed to achieve high results during his end of year exams. We liked the classes so much that we are going to continue the lessons with David next year as well.
