Math, Physics and Computer Science tutoring by Stanford grad
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?

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 from weekly meetings over an eight week period; of course, that varies with the student, subject, and situation, so is a goal rather than a guarantee.
Doug has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 10 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Doug is an incredible tutor.
He is very patient, punctual, organized and attentive in his teaching. He knows Discrete Math to a very detailed degree and goes through the content in fashion that makes clear the concepts and foundations of the subject to better assist when it comes time to expand on the various components of the problems in a Midterm or future assignment. He is always happy to answer any questions and go over things as many times until it takes for me to understand them. He makes me feel at ease and has improved my confidence overall. I have moved up at least 1 grade thanks to Doug. Thank you Doug!Jacob, 14 lessons with Doug
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
I am so glad to find Doug for tutoring my daughter for calculus. He is very knowledgeable and explains concepts very clearly and patiently.Above all he is very cooperative in scheduling his sessions.My daughter has shown lot of progress in math ever since Doug tutored her.Simmi, 33 lessons with Doug
Doug taught me various concepts from Calculus II in a way that was easy to learn. He used multiple examples that made the concepts much simpler. Specifically, he taught me about Convergence tests and how they can be used. I would highly highly highly recommend Doug as a tutor. He is amazing!Aditia, 4 lessons with Doug
Doug really was efficient with our session time and he provided clear explanations of the material. He also added critical need to know information to help understand the material further. He’s really informed and helpful.Fin, 14 lessons with Doug
Great Physics C conceptual topics review and prep for test
I thought you were very helpful in going over the concepts and showing examples. It helped me clear up some confusion I had and better established the conceptual fundamentals I needed. I originally gave you a 4 not necessarily because you were poor by any means, but more because I'm just naturally a very hard rater, and I almost never give full rating to anything.Jian, 1 lesson with Doug
I have, at times, up to two sessions a week with Doug. I am not gifted when it comes to anything math-related so Discrete math is challenging and Doug makes sense of things, has supplemental materials and can stick with something until I understand it. I just may pass after all :)Alexandra, 16 lessons with Doug
Knowledgeable and efficient tutor
Doug was thorough in explaining just what my daughter needed to know! We will use Doug for any further assistance. Doug was able to pinpoint the areas that needed attention and then applied an explanation that was easy to understand!George, 2 lessons with Doug
Excellent Tutor. This is the third class that Doug helped my son with. For the previous two subjects my son got both of them "A". This semester I hope my son can get a good grade for his Logic Design class.Susan, 19 lessons with Doug
Doug helped my daughter with her confidence in tackling physics and math for the upcoming school year. Will definitely schedule more lessons.Felicia, 1 lesson with Doug
Doug helped my daughter in the first session. He is knowledgeable and patient. We are happy with the first class and looking forward to future sessions. Thanks to this platform as well for making this possible.Karuna, 3 lessons with Doug
