I am a well Experienced Science (Chemistry, Physics) Educator and a PhD 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.
My qualifications are: (BS Honors, MS, PhD) : UCLA Engineering.
(small brag - I was always top of the class growing up and also invented a cancer diagnostic device during my PhD and a patent for it!) but after all, non of that really 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, kind and patient, also productive and focused during every session - my unique, logical and step by step teaching style is loved by my 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 been struggling to comprehend.
I have worked with various kinds of students, with different conditions and learning patterns by individually, perfectly customizing to each student depending on their level of understanding and speed in explaining Chemistry and Physics concepts and working on practice problems with them.
Thus I help them achieve their best Chemistry and Physics grades by deeply understanding Chemistry and Physics concepts, not just aiming to barely pass the exams.

My daughter has received an A on each of her Chemistry tests since working with Dr. Wick

AP Chemistry in a semester school system moves really fast. Having a tutor is essential when taking this important course in such a small amount of time. Dr. Wick is an excellent tutor. He explains concepts very clearly, and finds challenging practice questions which help students review and better understand many important concepts in chemistry. He has helped my daughter feel more confident in this difficult course.

Got an A in College Honors Chem 1 !!!!

Working with Dr. Wick was the best decision my daughter made. The personalized attention made the concepts that were confusing during the professor's lectures, much easier to understand. Dr Wick is extremely intelligent, patient, kind and flexible with his time. The 3 hour time difference was never an issue. Due to Dr. Wick, my daughter earned an A in Chem 1 Honors as well as an overall 4.0 in her 1st semester at college. She is already scheduled to work with him again next semester for Chem 2 Honors.

Over 100% in my Chemistry Class

Dr. Dj Wick is an amazing tutor! He is able to break difficult concepts down, making sure you thoroughly understand the material so you can attempt problems individually as well. With his help I have over a 100% overall in my Chemistry class! Thank you so much for all the help Dr. Dj!

100% on College Physics Exam!

Dr. Wick is a wonderful tutor! After only a couple sessions, I scored a 100% on my physics exam. He is very patient and takes the time to explain complex concepts in a simple way. He has also been very flexible with scheduling, which I greatly appreciate. Dr. Wick is very thorough and consistently reviews the materials I send him ahead of our sessions. Physics can be a daunting subject, but I felt confident in the material after just a few sessions.

Knowledgable, passionate

Great session for my college level Gen. Chemistry class. It's hard to fully grasp the concepts in a live meeting sometimes when you're just listening to a professor more or less rush through a unit; but Dr. Dj makes sure you get a good foundation for the specific problems you're working on, and helps you work through a few problems to ingrain the process in your head. Highly recommend for those who don't grasp the concepts immediately.

Great Tutor!

Helped review my chemistry assignment quickly and accurately identified where I went wrong and how the problem is generally solved. Received an A on the assignment!!

Physics C Mechanics AP score 4

We are from Jamaica and it was recommended for my son to sit some AP exams to make his college application more competitive. He was doing physics at his school in Jamaica but AP is not generally done here. After being evaluated by another Wyzant tutor, who told us he did not think there was sufficient time to prepare my son to do well in the exam, I then reached out to Dr Wick for a “second opinion”. DJ evaluated AJs knowledge from his school curriculum and devised a plan to get him prepared with only two months to go. We were ecstatic when AJ got a 4. This would not have been possible without the hard work, effort, dedication and teaching style of DJ. I cannot say enough good things about this man!

My son got a 98 on his final physics test after working with DJ for a few weeks

We were very happy with DJ’s tutoring and the results speak for themselves! He is patient and methodical and my son came out of his weekly Physics tutoring sessions with DJ confident and really feeling like he had an excellent grasp of the material covered. I highly recommend him!

Math 99.6% and Physics 95%

Dr. DJ W has been tutoring my son in Physics and Pre Calculus now for a couple months. He was struggling in both classes and simply not understanding the material and concepts that were being taught. After several lessons he not only has a great understanding of the material being taught in class he has also increased his confidence. He finished up the the fourth quarter of his Junior year with a 99.6% in physics and 95% in his math class. Thank you Dr. DJ W for all of your help as well as awesome communication on this tutoring platform. We are grateful to have found you on Wyzant.
