About David


Bio

Hello

My name is David.

I tutor in chemistry and organic chemistry for Wyzant, and have for many years.

While qualified to tutor in eleven subjects, I only accept students for help with chemistry/organic chemistry as this is the subject I love most.

My PhD is in organic chemistry. I was fortunate to have been educated and trained by some of the most capable chemical scientists at the nation's finest institutions, including Harvard, Stanford, and Berkeley.

My PhD is in organic chemistry. I was fortunate to have been educated and trained by some of the most capable chemical scientists at the nation's finest institutions, including Harvard, Stanford, and Berkeley.

I host my own YouTube Channel, offering FREE instructional videos to students of organic chemistry. Check it out at:

I have fifteen continuous years of experience in the classroom, teaching chemistry and organic chemistry at every level and under a wide variety of curricula.

Chemistry

Chemistry

I hold a PhD in Organic Chemistry from UC Berkeley, with graduate studies at Harvard, and post-doctoral appointments at UCSF Medical Center and Stanford. I teach Math and Science, or "STEM", at an elite private college prep academy in the Atlanta area. This includes College-Placement level Chemistry ("CP"), Honors Chemistry ("H"), and AP CHEM. I have been teaching chemistry, at either the college or high school level, for the past nine years, including more than fifty lecture or lab courses, and probably one thousand students. I have received many accolades from students, parents, and colleagues throughout this period for my chemistry teaching prowess.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry

I help students that are struggling in organic chemistry. I have a PhD in organic chemistry from UC Berkeley, with additional educational background from Harvard, UCSF Medical, and Stanford.....all in organic chemistry, so I am a true expert in this subject. I also have 15+ years continuous, full time teaching and tutoring experience in General and Organic Chemistry, at all levels and across multiple curricula, including AP/IB/undergraduate pre-med and others. I teach and tutor via a conceptual approach that de-emphasizes rote memorization, instead focusing on developing powerful and transferrable general problem-solving skills that will serve the student today as well as years into the future. I have a proven track record in successfully teaching and tutoring hundreds of students over the years, regardless of learning preferences or background. I would very much like to help you!

Knowledgeable and understanding tutor

I reached out to David as a last resort. My college had no tutors available that worked with my busy schedule, as I was balancing academics and a part time job. I needed an organic chemistry tutor bad, I was very close to failing. David has been very helpful, he makes understanding the subject easier and has a very flexible schedule that works with mine. He’s been very honest with me about my strengths and weaknesses regarding the subject, wanting me to succeed while being very patient. I highly recommend him. :)

incredibly knowledgeable, professional tutor!

David helped me with my ochem 2 midterm - he was very knowledgeable about the concepts I needed to know for the midterm and explained the concepts in a clear, understandable manner. After my sessions with him, I got an A on the midterm and the highest score in the class! overall, would highly recommend David if you need help with ochem!

Very knowledgeable, patient, and amazing tutor

Dr. Jeffrey is a very passionate and experienced teacher. My kids started loving Chemistry after taking just couple lessons from him and we continued taking weekly lessons for more than 8 months. He is a very composed and energetic person and can easily keep the kids focused with his teaching skills. He has got a great teaching philosophy. He built and shared a teaching plan with us to ensure the parents are kept in loop. He was well prepared for each class with PowerPoint slides and he even did some lab demostrations. He prepared tests for each unit and ensured the kids were progressing well. He really motivated them and built strong concepts (for AP Chem) as they are getting ready to take Chemistry in high school.

Flexible and knowledgeable tutor

David has been very flexible and able to work with my fast-paced class. He has also helped me learn and review concepts more quickly than I would have been able to accomplish myself. He has very patiently answered all of my questions and explained concepts.

Organic Chemistry

David continues to be a rock star tutor for my daughter who’s a PreMed student. She scored a 100 on her first quiz of the semester. He comes prepared to each session snd follows up on any outstanding questions. He’s even done research after a session to make sure he was on the same page with her professors. This is our 2nd semester with him. He’s well worth the hourly fee!

Very Helpful and Knowledgeable

David helps plan out lessons for organic chemistry in a organized and easy way. He develops tools that really help you out with learning Organic Chemistry, I've learned a lot with David. Definitely recommend!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

David helped my child feel better about chemistry. She said that she felt comfortable asking for different ways to answer a question. He is an excellent teacher!

Elsa, 5 lessons with David

patients and understand

David is making sure that I understand each concept. He care about my learning and going over the homework helps.

Florie, 16 lessons with David

Easy to follow!

David has been a great amount of help in my Organic Chemistry class. He is patient and easy to follow and understand. My class is online and not very easy to keep up with. David took me back to the beginning and made sure I understood the basics before moving on to bigger things. He explains things in a way I understand and tailors the lessons to my learning style. He is also reassuring and gives me the confidence I need to get through problems I wouldn't ordinarily think I could do. David is easy to communicate with and is flexible with meeting times. I would definitely recommend him to any student needing help.
