My name is Dave and I have been a full-time high school physics teacher for 26 years. I have also taught physics part-time at the university level. Throughout this time, I have tutored physics as well. My approach is upbeat, encouraging, and aimed at deep understanding of the physics concepts. I have a wealth of knowledge of physics and have taught and tutored over 3,000 physics students (at least four of whom are now also successful physics teachers). I look forward to helping you master the concepts that are causing difficulty.
