The Triplets

David's teaching philosophy is that students must have a desire to learn. This desire may be present from a young age, but can also manifest itself as someone grows older - 'enthusiasm drives personal growth.' David loves helping ignite a person's desire to absorb a new language, but he maintains that the student is the most important person in the classroom.

He is married to Ayako Martin and they have 4 children. Marlowe is their oldest, he was born in 2007; and in Dec 2009 Ayako gave birth to triplets! 2 boys and 1 girl, called Dylan, Joshua and Embrace respectively.

The Triplets

Aside from spending time with his family, his hobbies include: snowboarding, playing guitar, reading, swimming and photography.
