I am David. IB DP teacher for eight years. I major in Economics and Business Management; they are my passion. In particular, I specialize in Monetary Economics. I am a member of the Post-Keynesian Scholars community, though I would not reckon myself as Keynesian. I am also a member of the Austrian School of Economics Group, though neither am I Classic in a Walrasian sense. I run my own blog on Economics and Philosophy; there, I share thoughts on competitive markets and monetary policies.
Hobbies are swimming and soccer. Welcome and join my classes!
I have 13 years of IB teaching experience, helping students understand both Business Management and Economics and guiding them through their Extended Essays and IA’s. Look for those who teach both Economics and Business; they teach things in 3D!
What is your teaching philosophy?
We shall not cease from exploration;
And the end of all our exploring.
Will be to arrive where we started;
And know the place for the first time.
― T.S. Eliot
