About Douglas

I have been a high school Honors and AP Chemistry teacher for the past nine years. I take pride that during this time, nearly 90% of my Honors Chemistry students have achieved mastery (A or B), with many students going on to pursue AP Chemistry or AP Physics. My students' AP Chemistry scores have consistently exceeded the national average, with a 97% passing rate, and with the vast majority of students going on to pursue successful careers in chemistry, medicine, engineering, and graduate school. I have been tutoring high school and college students for the past three years.

My philosophy to teaching is to instill the joy of life-long science learning, and to plant seeds for students to pursue their own curiosity toward science and the physical world. In my teaching and tutoring, I seek out where misunderstandings are, and build the connections to student's prior learning. I maintain a comprehensive website for my students and parents, including links to animations, simulations, and my personal instructional videos. I have been nominated as Teacher of Distinction for outstanding teaching from students for the last five years.

I am licensed and certified to teach grades 7-12 in Chemistry and Physics.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I specialized in Organic Chemistry while pursuing degree at Wittenberg University, majoring in Chemistry. Courses taken include Organic Chemistry I, Organic Chemistry II, and Advanced Organic Chemistry. Also took Biochemistry as graduate student at University of Akron in obtaining master's degree in education and licensure. I teach some Organic Chemistry as part of an AP Chemistry course.
