About David

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!

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.

Algebra 1

I am a graduate student in Neuromotor Science and have studied engineering. I use advanced math for my research and have tutored math at many different levels over the years. I am very familiar with Algebra and should be able to field any questions that may come up.

Algebra 2

I have tutored math and science for over a decade, including Algebra 2. I have studied engineering and biomechanics and am currently getting my PhD in Neuromotor Science, a math intensive field.

Anatomy

I studied biomechanics for my bachelor's and motor control for my masters. I have been faculty at two universities teaching biomechanics and am currently a PhD student in Neuromotor Science.

Biology

I have studied engineering, biomechanics, and am currently getting my PhD in Neuromotor Science. I have experience in writing and have several years of experience teaching and tutoring at various levels and ages.

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.

Fitness

I am qualified to teach fitness because of my bachelor's in exercise science and my master's degree in kinesiology and applied physiology. I have experience coaching and was the captain of my track and cross country teams and was a member of my high school basketball team. I have also worked in the field of chiropractic and have been trained on how to advise in exercise prescription to some degree.

Geometry

I have studied engineering, biomechanics, and am currently a PhD student in Neuromotor Science at Temple University.

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.

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.

Physiology

I have been a former faculty member of West Chester University and Temple University in their Kinesiology departments. I'm currently getting my PhD in Neuromotor Science, a physiology related field.

Precalculus

I studied engineering, biomechanics, and nonlinear dynamics of complex systems, and am currently getting my PhD in Neuromotor Science, a field with a lot of applied math.

Psychology

I am studying for my PhD in Neuromotor Science. This gives me a strong understanding of psychology. In addition to this I have studied general psychology, developmental psychology, and abnormal psychology. My field historically links its roots in psychology. So naturally I read a great deal of psychology research and keep up on the latest publications.

Track & Field

I am qualified to teach fitness because of my bachelors in exercise science and my masters degree in kinesiology and applied physiology. I have experience coaching and was the captain of my track and cross country teams and was a member of my high school basketball team. I have also worked in the field of chiropractic and have been trained on how to advise in exercise prescription to some degree. I have extensive experience working with amateur runners training for 5k's up through marathons.

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.

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.
