Primary Junior and Intermediate Special Education Tutor
David obtained his Bachelor of Education at University of Western Ontario, where he received the prestigious "Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario Award". This recognition led to opportunities around the globe. David took on a year contract as a Grade 6 teacher at an International English School in a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden. He became the go to teacher for math and science after school while also running the chess and drama clubs. During this time he completed training by Cambridge University to be an invigilator for international assessments.
The following year David moved to England and worked as an in demand supply teacher for the primary and junior grades for Warwickshire County. In the second half of the year he accepted a position created for him at one of the academies where he specialized in helping students struggling in English and Math (Grades 3-6). The following year David returned to Ontario and volunteered in two Special Education classrooms for a TDSB public school. He followed this up by earning an additional qualification in Special Education through the University of Western. Having found working with students one-on-one to be especially effective and rewarding, David turned to tutoring.
Having had a previous career in the film and television industry, David has both the creative background and the amazing past of having worked with many creators like actors who have appeared in films such as Avengers and Spiderman. David remains an avid writer and a huge movie buff. Combined with travel to 34 countries and having had unique opportunities such as working nights at the Royal Ontario Museum, David brings fascinating experience to his passion for teaching and helping students succeed. He is extremely excited to be working with Prep Academy to assist students to reach their full potential.
