Looking for extra help with high school math or physics, or college computer science? Perhaps that AP Calculus exam is looking like a challenge, or your son or daughter would like to improve their SAT scores? I have helped a number of local students make sense of math or physics...check out my reviews and ratings. It's so great when I hear my students tell me they got an A on a big test, a 5 on an AP exam, a 1440 on their SAT, or they passed that hard mandatory class for their major. I have a Master's in Computer Science from Stanford, and enjoy helping people learn about math and computer science, as well as related subjects like physics and SAT prep.

My specialties include high school honors and AP classes like calculus and physics, as well as college classes for discrete math, computer architecture, algorithms and programming. If you find yourself struggling with a challenging math class or challenging teacher, or just need a refresher in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, probability and statistics, or precalc to get through more advanced math, I would be a great choice to help you. My students appreciate my approach with lots of patience and positive reinforcement.

I have a flexible schedule, and can meet you or your student after school, or during the day if that's more convenient. Most of my students meet with me either at the library or in their home. At this point, I have a number of regular weekly clients who get priority for future appointments, so not all times shown in the availability list below are schedulable for new clients, but I would be happy to work with you to find a time that would work for you.

My preference is to work with students who want to improve performance in a class or for a standardized test over a series of regular sessions, as opposed to one-time help for a class assignment or test. You might reasonably expect a one-letter grade improvement from weekly meetings over an eight week period; of course, that varies with the student, subject, and situation, so is a goal rather than a guarantee.

Subjects

Computer

C,

C

C is a great programming language, combining the power and performance of assembly language, with the safety and abstraction level of...assembly language. (Little C joke there.) As a computer science major, I have done extensive work with C, and would be happy to help with all you C-based questions.
Computer Engineering,

Computer Engineering

I have thirty year's work experience as a professional software engineer, developing and manage software engineering efforts using a variety of languages and operating systems. My specialty is systems software, especially operating systems, networks and databases, but on Wyzant I often tutor courses in boolean algebra / digital logic as well as computer organization and assembly language. I am competent to consult on architecture and engineering topic including security and performance engineering. I have an MSCS from Stanford in Computer Science, as well as a BS is Computer Engineering from the University of Michigan.
Computer Science,

Computer Science

I enjoy teaching computer science material, especially including some of the more theoretical subjects like data structures and analysis of algorithms, as opposed to primarily teaching programming language constructs. I have a Master's degree in computer science from Stanford, and thirty years professional experience in computer engineering. I work as a systems architect and help mentor junior developers. I was a teaching assistant at the University of Michigan as an undergraduate.
UNIX

UNIX

I have used Unix since there first was a Unix to use back in the 1980s. At various times in my career I have work with and manager people working on the Berkeley Unix and RHEL Linux kernals and applications. I would be happy to help with your UNIX needs.

Calculus

I am among the top in-person calculus tutors in the greater Washington DC / Baltimore area, while also doing online tutoring for several years on Wyzant and other platforms. (Not to mention that I am a Jeopardy winner, too!) I have helped dozens of students in person and many more online with calculus problems, including differential and integral calculus of a single variable (i.e. AP AB/BC), including limits, differentiation and integration techniques, word problems, and series. Please let me know if I can be of some help, and we can discuss how to set up a session at your preferred time.
Physics,

I am among the top in-person physics tutors in the greater Washington DC / Baltimore area, while also doing online tutoring for several years on Wyzant and other platforms. (Not to mention that I am a Jeopardy winner, too!) I have helped dozens of students in-person and many more online with physics problems, especially involving dynamics (laws of motion, energy conservation, rotational dynamics, momentum, etc) but also waves, electricity and magnetism, and basic optics, thermodynamics and fluid dynamics. If I can be of some help, please write to me and we can set up a time to discuss your problems.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

As a recipient of a perfect 800 score on the math SAT back in the day, I know what it takes to get through this type of high-stress test. I can help you review the key concepts including ratios, probability, geometry and graphs, as well as help with test-taking strategy, such as when it makes sense to guess, and when it doesn't.

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

Discrete math is one of my favorite topics to teach, and I have many satisfied students in person and online to show for it! Set theory, combinatorics, graph theory, propositional logic, mathematical induction, boolean algebra. Fun stuff! I have taken (and received an A) in college level discrete math (i.e. math for computer scientists vs. calculus), and am approved to teach discrete math via another tutoring company, where I passed their 50 question test with a 90% success rate.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

I tutor Finite Math for a number of online students, including linear systems, matrix algebra, probability and statistics. I would be happy to help with your Finite Math needs.

(Digital Logic) Great and clear explanations!

Doug taught me about controllers and datapaths and helped me understand some fundamentals about clock delays. He was crystal clear and patient with my questions!

Doug helped my daughter with High School Algebra 2. She found the first lesson very helpful and is looking forward to working with Doug to improve her competencies in Algebra.

Sidhat, 4 lessons with Doug

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

He helped with studying for a physics quiz. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. I will definitely be scheduling additional sessions to help improve my overall grade.

Lesley, 7 lessons with Doug

Very Helpful

Doug helped our daughter in AP Physics. He was very knowledgable in the material and helped her understand the necessary steps to take when solving the problems. She was considerably more confident with the AP Physics material after her session with him. We will definitely use him again!

Carolyn, 1 lesson with Doug

Responsive and encouraging

As a parent, I appreciated the thorough feedback afterward. My son is more confident that he has a strategy for solving a range of problems. We will definitely use Doug in the future.

Julie, 4 lessons with Doug

Great first lesson. Put our Junior at ease.

This was our first meeting with a tutor and it was a great start! Doug put our Junior physics student at ease. We are looking forward to the next lessons and seeing the results at school. Thanks!

Fern, 14 lessons with Doug

Very knowledgeable and understandable tutor

Doug taught me about derivatives and tangent lines. He was very patient, resourceful, and gave great instructions and tips. He breaks down confusing matter and comes prepared with extra practice problems.
