About David


Bio

26 years teaching physics in high schools, and always getting better at it. NYS Regents Physics, AP Physics 1 & 2, AP Physics C: Mechanics and Electricity & Magnetism. I still enjoy learning physics--the history of its ideas and discoveries, the many applications and technologies, the clever problem-solving approaches, etc. I have had my share of successes but I also remember times when I was completely lost, and many times when I knew a lot about a topic but was missing that key fact or...

26 years teaching physics in high schools, and always getting better at it. NYS Regents Physics, AP Physics 1 & 2, AP Physics C: Mechanics and Electricity & Magnetism. I still enjoy learning physics--the history of its ideas and discoveries, the many applications and technologies, the clever problem-solving approaches, etc. I have had my share of successes but I also remember times when I was completely lost, and many times when I knew a lot about a topic but was missing that key fact or approach or assumption that would enable me to solve the types of problems associated with that topic. As a teacher, I have always enjoyed diagnosing those difficulties and resolving them.

My strengths are subject knowledge (Masters's degree in Physics) and addressing student questions. I like to stay on point. I can explain things in multiple ways. I am patient and I can listen to what a student is saying or trying to say.

If motivation is the problem I can try. Sometimes I can light that spark. I am relatively better, though, at helping a motivated student who is able to articulate a lot of questions. I can teach a whole physics topic from start to finish, but I think it is more efficient to address the things that have been taught but don't quite make sense yet, again with questioning from the student.

Great teacher

I was trying to write a lot here, my son compiled it into a single statement, “he explained very well, I was able to understand easily”. I think that says it all. Thank you David

Srinivas, 1 lesson with David

Great teacher! Very knowledgeable

Dave was great! He took his time to going over the basics to help my daughter get a better understanding. He also took his time to really figure out the knowledge she already has and what pieces was missing. Look forward to next tutoring session.

Teanna, 1 lesson with David

Very Knowledgeable and patient.

David has been very helpful to my daughter. She said David explain the problems very well and he is also very patient. She had a lot of problems for homework and David was very flexible to squeeze us in his busy schedule the same day. I requested David again in just couple of days. Stela

Steluta, 3 lessons with David

Great explanations and patient tutor

David helped me with my homework problems that can be often difficult. I now understand slot of the concepts much better and was able to do the rest by myself. He is also very flexible with scheduling

Alexa, 4 lessons with David
