Looking for extra help with college / high school math or physics, or college computer science? Perhaps that AP Calculus or Physics exam is looking like a challenge, or your son or daughter would like to improve their SAT scores? I have helped hundreds of students around the country make sense of calculus, discrete math and physics, to name a few popular subjects...check out my reviews and ratings. It's so great when I hear my students tell me they passed that hard mandatory class for their major, got an A on a big test, a 5 on an AP exam, or a 1440 on their SAT. I have a Master's in Computer Science from Stanford, and enjoy helping people learn about math and computer science, as well as related subjects like physics and SAT prep.
My specialties include college / AP classes like calculus and physics, as well as college classes for discrete math, computer architecture, and algorithm analysis. If you find yourself struggling with a challenging math class or challenging teacher, or just need a refresher in trigonometry, probability and statistics, or precalc to get through more advanced math, I would be a great choice to help you. My students appreciate my approach with lots of patience and positive reinforcement.
I have a flexible schedule, and can meet you or your students online, which is the most popular option, or in person after school, or during the day if that's more convenient. Most of my in-person students meet with me either at the library or in their home. At this point, I have a number of regular weekly clients who get priority for future appointments, so not all times shown in the availability list below are schedulable for new clients, but I would be happy to work with you to find a time that would work for you.
My preference is to work with students who want to improve performance in a class or for a standardized test over a series of regular sessions, as opposed to one-time help for a class assignment or test. You might reasonably expect a one-letter grade improvement fro
Doug has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 10 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Doug is the perfect tutor. Period. He has been tutoring our son for the past two years in high-school advanced Math and Physics and the difference we have seen is amazing. Our son is now consistently getting A’s and it has increased his confidence in these subjects dramatically. Doug is super clear in his explanations and will find alternative ways to explain difficult topics. He is patient and thorough. He also gives plenty of practice problems to reinforce the learning. If a topic requires additional research, he is great about following up to ensure that he has provided the correct and complete explanation. Doug is also a true professional - punctual and responsive in all communications. It makes it easy for our son and for us to work with him. We can’t thank Doug enough for the impact he has had in helping our son stay at the top of his class in two very tough subjects. Needless to say, we are planning to continue with him through the rest of high school.J, 87 lessons with Doug
Very patient and knowledgeable!!
Over the course of the pandemic my twin boys have taken an unintended gap year from college courses.... meaning they have done very little to keep their brains sharp, especially in the area of math. Doug has already in one session helped them dust off their skills and we will continue to book with him going forward!Holly, 1 lesson with Doug
Knowledgeable AP Physics tutor
Patient and helpful in assisting my son with prep for the AP Physics 1 test. Also helpful in covering ground that was missed during virtual schooling. Recommend this tutor to anyone needing help with Physics.Sally, 11 lessons with Doug
Was very less helpful before the AP Physics C exam
Scheduled a lesson on Sunday to clarify few doubts my daughter Anisha had prior to the exam. He joined the lesson saying exactly the lesson needs be concluded in 60 minutes. Halfway through we had a technical issue in our digital pen and my daughter told that she needed to fix the pen and he again mentioned he needs to leave in exactly the scheduled time. The lesson was very shallow in terms of calculations and answers he went to mention it's fine to leave at this point. Next when my daughter said could you pls. send the MCQs you covered he easily mentioned that he will send later. Exam was Monday and he was so not helpful. Later on sent me a message he complaint about me to the tutoring company.Pancha, 1 lesson with DougTutor responded:
The client had agreed to the scheduled one hour session, was happy during the session and even requested a session extension at 47 minutes into our scheduled hour. When I couldn't extend the session due to a previously scheduled session following, she was quite upset and left negative feedback for that reason.
AP Physics taught the right way
Doug has been working with my son Sam (a senior in HS) and after only 2 lessons has made a huge difference in Sam's understanding. Sam says Doug does a very thorough and good job teaching, and has really taken the time to answer all his questions. Sam says that at the end of a tutoring session with Doug, he really feels he completely understands a concept, and feels more confident about approaching the next physics class and the net new concept. Thanks, Doug!Mardah, 2 lessons with Doug
The best tutor I've ever had
Before I started tutoring with Doug, I was struggling very badly in Calculus BC. I had gotten a C on the first semester final exam and ended up with a much lower grade than I wanted. However, it is safe to say that Doug is one of the best tutors I've ever had, as he helped me tremendously throughout my second semester and helped me get an A in the class and on the final. I 100% recommend him as a tutor for calculus!Dhillon, 14 lessons with Doug
Happy to have found a knowledgeable and patient tutor. He is to the point and communicates the material well and in a systematic way. looking forward to future lessons with him.Shawn, 1 lesson with Doug
Doug is great teacher, very insightful. His teaching style gave me great insight and understanding and he is teaching but in a very conversational way... High recommendChaz, 2 lessons with Doug
detailed, thorough, patient tutor
Doug helped my son prepare for his AP Calculus BC class and exam. He found interesting and useful practice problems, and explained concepts thoroughly. He was well-prepared, helpful, and kind.Audrey, 1 lesson with Doug
knowledgable, patient, experienced. Two sessions so far. First session, Doug explained the concepts. Second session, he taught me how to tackle homework problems. Both sessions were really good. I will schedule more sessions with Doug.Ron, 22 lessons with Doug
