About David

I hold a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and have experience teaching-tutoring in the areas of chemistry, biology, nutrition and math. I am enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge of these areas and enjoy working with high school and college students. It has been my experience that many students benefit from extra help sessions which can increase their understanding of subject material and improve their grades. One-on-one interaction has proven to be even more powerful, and can make all the difference in a student's confidence and performance.

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.

Nutrition

The essence of human nutrition is based in the biochemistry of life processes and how they are affected by the presence or deficiency of critical substances such as amino acids, vitamins, minerals and water, which are found in nature. The study of nutrition addresses the importance and the requirements of these and other substances throughout the course of human life. I received my M.S. and Ph.D. in the area of nutrition and biochemistry from Rutgers University and have taught human nutrition at the college level for the past three years.

Wonderful! — My daughter was nervous about her SAT II Chem subject test. Dr. F. spent 3 hours reviewing the subject with her and going through practice tests. He was extremely patient and knowledgeable. His approach to the format of the questions on the test was insightful and really helped her when she took the actual test. Dr. F is a wonderful tutor and I would recommend him very highly! ...
