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 tutor

David is very helpful. He knows the subject well. He is responsive and cares. He gets the material before hand so he is well prepared for the session.

Taner, 2 lessons with David

Knowledgeable tutor

David reviewed what my son needed in help with and has made himself available each week for the rest of the semester. We are glad we have his help. He knows physics Very well.

Neal, 10 lessons with David

great teacher

It was my first time doing this online. He was patient and kept me on task. He helped me review for my physics final.

Norm, 1 lesson with David

Knowledgeable and excellent tutor

David explains physics concepts really well & builds confidence. Concepts included projectile motion and circular motion problems. Multiple problems were covered in review for an upcoming test.

Christina, 3 lessons with David

Awesome!

Mr David was really great. Very patient and understanding. We discussed problems I had with Electromagnetism, magnetism, and electromagnetic induction. I think I did very well on my test.

Shalanda, 1 lesson with David

AP Physics

My son is a junior in high school and he really enjoyed working with David. My son said, "David knows his stuff". It is important to feel comfortable with your tutor. Thanks David

Gloria, 5 lessons with David

Excellent teacher

I have gotten excellent feedback from my high school AP Physics student about David. She is really enjoying working with him and it's sparking her love and passion for physics.

Maria, 6 lessons with David

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Knowledgeable and patient tutor. Mrs David teach my son AP Physics 1. Excellent teacher. Mr David expertise in teaching has put my son’s minds at ease. I’m so grateful to have him as my son’s teacher.”

Katherine, 8 lessons with David

Great Tutor!

David has helped me so much for my Physics 2 class. Even though that is a rare class to take, David has always been patient and found a way to help. I would and have recommended him to others!

Patricia, 10 lessons with David

Knowledgeable and patient.

My kids reported that David was able to explain things clearly and I think this is the most important for good tutor. They also reported that they had to be able to finish the rest of the work by themselves after working with David .Thank you David!
