About David

For the last five years I have been teaching physics (both algebra and calculus-based) as an instructor at several different universities in Boston, in addition to providing private one-on-one tutoring. I have been enjoying every minute of it. I consider myself personable and down to earth, and I have always received positive feedback from my students.

Physics is often viewed as memorizing a myriad of distinct equations, but that is a misunderstanding. Physics is more than just a list of equations; it is a methodology for describing how the world around us operates. Along the way you will inevitably come across various equations, and understanding where they come from, what they mean, and why we use them is the key to success.

It is no secret that in general students tend to forget much of what they learn in school down the road (too bad!), but in taking a physics course you will learn to develop your analytical thinking and problem-solving skills that will carry with you far beyond the class. If you simply wish to do well in your physics class, I am here to help you reach that goal. I have been involved with a wide variety of physics programs as well as students from all different walks of life, so I am confident in my ability to meet your specific tutoring needs.

My schedule is extremely flexible and I am willing to meet you wherever is most convenient, so please don't hesitate to contact me!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Physics

I graduated from the University of Connecticut (honors program) with a major in physics and minor in mathematics before attending graduate school at Brandeis and Northeastern University, where I received a master's degree in physics at each school.
