About Douglas


Bio

I have been a high school Honors and AP Chemistry teacher for the past ten years, and am also an AP reader for the AP College Board. I take pride that nearly all of my Honors Chemistry students have historically 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...

I have been a high school Honors and AP Chemistry teacher for the past ten years, and am also an AP reader for the AP College Board. I take pride that nearly all of my Honors Chemistry students have historically 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 outside the district for the past four 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 six years.

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

Knowledgeable and prepared Tutor

Doug has been teaching AP Chemistry to my daughter for several months on a regular basis. He is very knowledgeable and competent. He is very flexible with schedules, comes prepared and explains the materials in a simple and understandable manner. We have been extremely happy with Doug and have seen significant improvements in my daughter’s class performance.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

He has helped my son tremendously with his college chemistry class. Doug has the ability to explain concepts and problems in such a way that is easy to understand and has helped my son improve his understanding and his grade. He is very patient and a very good teacher. My son would have been lost without his help and will continue to use him in the future.

Great tutor!

Doug is not only knowledgeable about chemistry but,even more importantly, explaining concepts in a clear and easy to understand way. My daughter is not only improving her grade but also her confidence. I highly recommend Doug A.

Lynn, 13 lessons with Douglas

A Master of material

Doug has made this difficult subject easy to grasp through his thorough knowledge and personal webpage aids. Experience allows him to anticipate and eliminate problem areas. My daughter actually is able to grasp this material in very little time. I only wish he were available back in my day.
