About David


Bio

Hello,

I do research in biomechanics and motor control of human movement. This means that I use engineering mathematics and sciences to understand why people have problems using their body. This combined with my minor in history has given me a very wide variety of subjects that I can work with a student on. I have experience tutoring the following subjects: math from elementary to multivariable calculus, physics, basic chemistry, biology, cellular biology, anatomy, and physiology.

Hello,

I do research in biomechanics and motor control of human movement. This means that I use engineering mathematics and sciences to understand why people have problems using their body. This combined with my minor in history has given me a very wide variety of subjects that I can work with a student on. I have experience tutoring the following subjects: math from elementary to multivariable calculus, physics, basic chemistry, biology, cellular biology, anatomy, and physiology.

I have had several opportunities to develop my teaching skills so I am fairly experienced. In addition to having random tutoring jobs through school, I have guest lectured in graduate school for a Motor Development class at University of Delaware, been a teacher at Huntington Learning Center for math and science, and most recently been an adjunct faculty member at West Chester University, where I taught and organized curricula for a biomechanics class and a motor learning class. Currently I am teaching at Temple University, where I hope to focus on my research and complete my PhD, while I teach courses. Ultimately becoming a full professor is a career goal of mine, so teaching is a passion, and is something I take a lot of pride in.

If you are in the math and sciences, there's a good chance I can help you. Since I have experience in areas outside of my specialty, I may also be able to help in other subjects, so please look over what subjects I am able to offer. I look forward to working with you!

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I have sung in choirs, hosted radio shows, interviewed professional musicians, emceed weddings, and lectured classes as large as 80-90 students. I have learned what it is like to overcome anxiety associated with the performance of engaging an audience in person and regularly apply sports psychology methods to help people achieve their goals. I believe I can share what I know of neuropsychology and my experience with performance to help interested folks become proficient in public speaking.

Computer

MATLAB

MATLAB

I used Matlab directly for my research with the linear and nonlinear analysis of coordination of complex systems, including human biomechanics. I worked with developing Matlab algorithms for the validation of wearables, and analysis of biological time series, and currently use it to validate algorithms related to patient specific models using pattern recognition methods.

History

World History,

World History

I have a minor in history from the University of Delaware. I took honors and AP history in high school and scored a five. I enjoy reading history in my free time and feel that it explains how the hard sciences and softer social sciences like economics or sociology explain changes in human behavior and experience in different places across the world at different places in time.

Chemistry

In the path that has lead me to pursue my PhD in Neuromotor Science, I've studied many different science disciplines, and chemistry is one of them. I have tutored chemistry in the past and find that it can be quite enjoyable with the right student. I like to show students the real life applications I'm familiar with to excite them, while also finding errors and working on the concepts. Much of the biology I work with requires a fundamental understanding of chemistry and I believe this and my experience prepares me for helping undergrads or lower with tutoring.

Mechanical Engineering,

Mechanical Engineering

I studied three an a half years of mechanical engineering. This ranged from statics and dynamics to solid/fluid mechanics and thermodynamics to linear algebra and differential equations. After introduction to controls theory, I decided my interest in clinical research and human motor control was more my passion and graduated with a degree in biomechanics, which employs the same concepts but in a biological paradigm. I have since used these topics and been published as a scientist doing graduate level research in human biomechanics.

Trigonometry

I have studied engineering, applied math, and applied science and all this requires a strong background in trigonometry. I have extensive experience working with different types of problems and using trigonometry to solve them. Considering my understanding of this material has gotten me into a graduate PhD program in biomechanics and neuroscience, I believe this has given me the qualifications to tutor trigonometry.

Guitar

Guitar

I have been playing guitar for 15 years. During that time I have studied guitar in a college course as well as have taken lessons independently. I understand how the guitar is structured and how one can apply music theory principles of harmony to the playing of the guitar. In addition to my personal experience, I have taught courses on motor learning. My specialty in human motor learning, development, and skill acquisition, on which I have been scientifically published, give me a unique ability to structure exercises for people learning any new skill to help them reach success.

Microbiology,

Microbiology

In my research and higher education career, where I have developed a specialty in the biophysics of human coordination based on the neurobiology and biomechanics of different patient populations, I have had to become intimately familiar with every aspect of biology, from gross anatomy to enzymology of epigenetics related to neuroplasticity. This gives me a sincere fluency in micro biology that I can use in combination with my teaching skills to help my students better understand this subject to improve their own understanding of the material.
Physical Science,

Physical Science

I studied three years of mechanical engineering and graduated undergrad with a degree in biomechanics. this has given me a diverse and extensive foundation in the measurement, modeling, and analysis of of physical systems. I have used this understanding of science to tutor students in physical science as well as physics, chemistry, and biology and their associated labs.

Knowledgable and Patient tutor

David has been really helpful with the big concepts of dynamical systems. David responds quickly to messages and sends me tons of outside resources to further help me with my class if we weren't able to get to it in our scheduled time. He also is really patient and outstanding in explaining these hard concepts. He really goes above and beyond and it is obvious he genuinely loves and wants to help with these topics. I'll definitely be scheduling more sessions with him. 12/10 rating.

Knowledgeable in Biomechanics

David was great, he was able to explain concepts to me that will be useful in applying to future work. He was patient and did me a favor by scheduling lesson on short notice. I will definitely work with him again.
