I am a well Experienced Science (Chemistry, Physics) Educator and a PhD Scientist in Engineering (ex - now turned into a professional full-time online Science educator) 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.

Amazing Physics Tutor!

Dr. DJW is so great at explaining complex physics concepts and making them easy to understand. My daughter looks forward to meeting with him, as she feels confident afterward about taking a test or completing a project. She has an A in her class. We feel so lucky to have found him as a tutor!

Awesome Teacher!

We are so thankful to have found Dr. DJ W. He has helped our son so much. According to my son, he explains things in a way his high school teacher does not. He is able to understand what is being taught and is able to apply the concepts and formulas to his high school assignments and curriculum. So thankful we found this awesome platform for tutoring. We love it!!

Understanding and Encouraging

Dr. Wike taught and tutored me through my first semester of physics, classical mechanics. I tried reaching out to more than one tutor and none of them was able to effectively help. I was half way through the semester and not doing very well. I was on the verge of failing. Dr. Wike was the only one who reached out to and seemed eager to help me through this rough patch. He encouraged and reassured that it was still possible to pass with a good grade. He was very patient and understanding. He was very thorough doing things such as reviewing my professor's lecture notes before a tutoring session and helping me through the week via message or a zoom phone call. When finals came, he was able to schedule me for extra sessions before my exam. Before I took my final he sent me one more encouraging message that I really appreciated. I took my exam more confident than any other test this semester. I did well and passed. I really appreciated all of his time. Without him, I don't think I would have passed my class.

Amazing tutor!! Got an A, and stayed ahead!

I’m a college student who used to feel overwhelmed by chemistry, until I started working with DJ. He is, without a doubt, a better teacher than any chemistry professor I’ve had in undergrad. DJ’s thoughtful explanations have made some of the most difficult topics feel straightforward. He helped me organize my approach to problem solving, and taught me to recognize the gaps in my understanding of the material in time for my exams. DJ has a habit of working future concepts and harder types of problems into practice, but he explains everything so clearly, you don’t even realize that you’ve passed the material covered in class. He’s also a lovely, incredibly patient person, who has helped me time and time again with answers to my last minute questions. 10/10!!

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!

Kimberly, 4 lessons with Dr. 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!

My daughter has a 98 in AP CHEMISTRY!!!!

DJ is a patient and knowledgeable tutor. He explains the material in a way that is not only clear but also interesting. He makes sure to tailor the lesson to the learning style of the student. In addition, he knows the AP Chemistry curriculum like the back of his hand, and is expert in preparing students for quizzes and tests. My daughter has been maintaining a 98 average consistently, and has also developed a love of chemistry.
