UC Santa Cruz (BA Biology)
National University (MEd)
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 out of Carlsbad after 13 years of teaching Biology and Physics (through AP B Physics) at Punahou Academy in Honolulu, Hawaii and have returned to my beloved aina, Oahu.
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!

Doug has been patient and kind and is thoroughly knowledgeable in Chemistry. His years of teaching have made him an excellent teacher, and he conveys the information clearly, concisely, and in a manner that my son is able to grasp quickly. This is truly a 5 star tutor!
Doug explained everything thoroughly. After a bad experience with one tutor I was a little leery/skeptical, but when he immediately recognized the tutor's calculation was incorrect, I became more at ease. He explained to a point where I understood. Great Tutor and I'll continue to study with him.
Our son really likes Doug and says he makes it much easier to understand in the way that Doug presents Physics. Looking for the results here shortly in grade.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I majored in Biology and pre-med in college.
I have taught High School Chemistry for over 20 years.
I have studied under Grand Master David Chaanine, the highest ranking non-Korean in the International Taekwon Do Federation for over 15 years and possess a 2nd degree black belt, as well as a teaching certificate allowing me to teach the art.
I have taken and successfully passed the MCAT myself.
