My technique is simple in nature and depth in practice. I want to find out what makes your learning yours due to an individualized approach that benefits the individual and the class when appropriate. I have have heard from previous students that they each got something different than one another.
I have been a classroom teacher for 6 years covering all areas of Social Studies. I range in academic levels as entry level to gifted and talented. The average year of teaching included 150 plus students with results ranging from content understanding to placing and advancing to National competitions.

Having known David for 30+ years, there are far too many examples of his honesty, dependability, responsibile-nature, ambition, trustworthiness, passion for imparting wisdom & knowledge to students (and student-athletes), maturity and all-around good nature to cite.
Simply put, David is the most honest, dependable and intelligent person I've ever had the privilege to know (and I'm not exaggerating because of our friendship; stating something untrue just for the sake of a reference would not serve our friendship, nor would David - fundamentally - be ok with it).
Lastly, David understands the dedication, responsibility and patience it takes to be a part of the educational process; he values the contributions he's able to impart on young minds (eager or otherwise); and he respects and understands the process it takes to help turn a student into a knowledgeable, productive member of society.
