Raised in largely bilingual household. B.A. in Spanish from UW (cum laude). English fluency slightly stronger. Extremely high level Spanish proficiency although the minutiae within humor can sometimes be lost. Excellent for those who need help with pronunciation, grammar (clarification of grammatical rules like the difference between a direct object and an indirect object, etc.), conjugation, and conversation.

About David

Many years of drum instruction with students who have learned best with alternative learner-centered approaches including: extreme patience, slow to fast repetition of patterns and exercises, focused breathing, as well as sight-reading, rhythm and ear training. Students with: Asperger's, Autism, D

DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

David is a great instructor. My son is 9 and a beginner and David is very good with him.

I have been teaching and tutoring this language over 5 years. I started my teaching after being a language and university student in Japan.

I can help students get grasp of Japanese as I had to learn it myself as a foreign language.

"I picked Pantelis as my Greek teacher based on the reviews I read on him and I am so glad I did! I have had the great privilege having Pantelis be my teacher as I continue to learn the Greek language. He has been so flexible and understanding and really wants to help you achieve your goals. I did not think I would be able to grasp onto the language as quickly as I have, but because of Pantelis, his patience, his incredible curriculum and approach on the best way to learn, I am in shock of how quickly I have been able to learn as much as I have thus far and I am only on lesson number 8! I will continue to work with Pantelis as my experience has been the BEST and I am excited to continue to expand my knowledge in Greek! I highly recommend him and his curriculum!"
