Hi! Thank you for clicking on me! As a "Pre-Med" student at UC Santa Cruz, I discovered that all sciences are founded in physics, and I have taught the "Big Three; Biology, Chemistry and Physics" from 8th grade science through AP and Freshman College-level courses. I just transferred to Carlsbad after 13 years of teaching Biology and Physics (through AP B Physics) at Punahou Academy in Honolulu, Hawaii.

I have been chosen as a "Teacher Fellow" for UCSD's "COSMOS for four straight summers 2008-2012: "COSMOS," California State Summer School for Math and Science" is where top students from around the state apply to learn Science including Computer Science in a college setting for four weeks.

I have a proven track record of success working with students from Junior High, through college. Please contact me though WyzAnt if you need help! Thanks for visiting!

Sincerely,
Doug
