I am a Highly Experienced Science (Chemistry, Physics) Educator and a PhD Research Scientist in Engineering from UCLA with many years of experience in teaching Chemistry & Physics and truly passionate in what I do, very friendly and patient with my students but strict when it's needed !!

I always get highly complimented from my Chemistry and Physics students and their parents who had great improvements in their grades and recommended to their friends. Most of my students get A's A+s!! and only a few B's.

Doctors Save your Lives! Teachers Shape your Lives!

Teaching is truly a Noble Service! And I take it very seriously!
I believe teachers are the second most Nobles of ones life, after their parents, who guides them through and shapes their whole life from that point onward.
And I try to give my best of the best to each and every student with lots of personal attention and concern, try to help them actually understand the concepts of science, and improve their grades and do well in their classes.

My qualifications are: (BS Honors, MS, PhD) : UCLA Engineering.
small brag - I was always top of the class and also invented a cancer diagnostic device during my PhD and got a patent ;).
but after all , non of that doesn't matters, knowing something and teaching something is different!
Being in someone else's shoes who's learning for the first time, is a gift! Everyone says I am gifted in that.

I have over 10 years of Experience and Expertise in teaching High School and College level Chemistry, Physics, Math Algebra, Precalc, Calculus and Trigonometry.

I am very friendly, super kind and patient, also productive and focused during every session - my unique, logical and step by step teaching style is loved by students.

There has been countless times my students would say "Oh, Now I finally get this concept when you explain it like that, why didn't anyone explain it like that before" once I put it in simple terms for Physics and Chemistry concepts that they've

Knowledgable, patient and relatable tutor

DJ stepped in to help my college freshman prepare for final exams in chemistry. His approach and style together with his deep knowledge of the content was outstanding. He took the time to understand my son's course syllabus, prior exams and class content then tailored his tutoring to what my son needed. My son was very comfortable and enjoyed working with him. DJ is on our list to help with future chemistry and physics courses! Highly recommend DJ!

Knoledgeable and patient tutor

My daughter had a great experience with DJ. He was very good at explaining concepts to her and giving her clear ways to solve problems. He took the time to go over the concepts completely and gave her extra practice problems to do. She felt very comfortable with the material by the end of their sessions. We will definitely be using him again!

WORTH EVERY PENNY

My daughter Hayley tends to be very picky about tutors. Frankly she’s picky about everything in life. There was no question that DJ impressed her more than any other tutor or even teacher she’s had. She is a sophomore in a school and has plenty of experience with both! She came away with a confidence in chemistry I have not seen before. DJ is the GOAT!

Quick response and so helpful!

Helped me answer and understand in a short period of time ! So helpful!! Highly recommend!! Answered my email immediately! Definitely will use him again!

Donna, 1 lesson with Dj

Thorough and productive

DJ is sure to give you thorough updates on the progress that was made in sessions. He gives extra work for concepts that may be more difficult and makes sure my son understands everything prior to the end of the session. First exam today since we started. I am confident it will go well.

Amber, 3 lessons with Dj

patient and understanding

So my son didn’t realize the time last night and was late to his session. DJ could have been “oh well” about it but instead was very understanding. He exhibited patience throughout the lesson and my son continues to get a greater grasp of his college chemistry course.

Best tutor EVER!!

DJ brought my son from a 42 in physics to an A!!!! He is gentle, punctual, wicked smart and very very kind - yet persistent and funny and just a wonderful person to spend time with under any circumstances!!! We are so very grateful!

Kristin, 6 lessons with Dj

Excellent first session

My son reports the session was very helpful. To have someone actually walk him through the steps and teach along the way was invaluable. He already feels more confident in navigating his college chemistry course moving forward

Terrific Tutor

DJ was great helping my son with study of fluid dynamics. He found DJ's explanations clear and extremely helpful. DJ was patient and extended the scheduled time to make sure all of the material was covered adequately.
