I have a love of learning and a passion for teaching! I hold a B.S. in biology and have completed extensive coursework in chemistry and physics as well. I scored in the top 5% in the math section of the SAT and the GRE, and the top 10% in the verbal section of those tests. Of course, intelligence alone does not a good teacher make. I am a firm believer that any subject can be accessible and interesting if it is properly explained. I have found that the teachers who best facilitate learning...

Douglas was very patient with my son and very knowledgeable with a great personality. My son was very satisfied with Douglas and he stated he explains really well.

He helped me with Chemistry 2 and was very patient and good at explaining the material. The lesson was over three hours and I look forward to more tutoring sessions.

Doug was thoughtful in focusing on explaining the review materials for a test in a way that allowed my daughter to understand it.

My son is already looking for more time to get more help from Douglas. As my son told me, Douglas was working with him where he asked for. Hope it will be like that next class and I will make sure to share it. Thanks.

Douglas worked with my daughter on geometry. She reported he had good mastery of the subject and was a patient and prepared tutor.
- William S. from Florence, MA
Doug is patient and explains difficult concepts simply and in a way that makes sense. I have been struggling with understanding conversions using units of measurement. At the end of our session I felt that I was well on my way to grasping these concepts in a more concise manner. I appreciate being able to work with Doug and would recommend him.
- Ilyse S. from Milford, MA
Doug is patient and seems to know where I go wrong on tests. He is confident in my abilities and has been a big help. I have ADD and it is hard to find a tutor or teacher that can explain math in a way I will understand and Doug can do that!!

Doug always arrives on time. He is very helpful and has a positive and supportive attitude. My 8th grade daughter has benefited from his help. Highly recommend!
- Jennifer C. from Wrentham, MA
Douglas has been so helpful for my daughter. She was flunking Chemistry until Doug started tutoring her. Now 3 months later, she is getting a B-. I am confident that by the end of her junior year, she will bring her grade up to a B or B+. Thankyou

Douglas taught my daughter AP Calculus. She was struggling to grasp some of the concepts so he went slowly through everything and broke it down so she could easily understand it. Super helpful and very polite!
- Lauren N. from Hopkinton, MA
I had the chance to hear Douglas interacting with my son during his tutoring session - he was patient, flexible, and very clear. The work is definitely making a difference and Douglas is providing several different strategies that are helping. We will definitely continue with his tutoring support.

Douglas came to tutor my son in Algebra 2 and Biology Honors. He was exactly on time and well prepared. He went over my sons homework and test results and helped him to understand where he could have gone wrong. With Biology he broke down the lesson and explained in detail so my son could fully understand the topic. Doug has a wonderful caring demeanor and and always stayed on topic.
- Frieda Z. from Westborough, MA
Final lesson before my SAT, Douglas helped me a lot with the whole preparation. I feel a lot more confident going in during my exam day
- Ana M. from Worcester, MA
Doug is a great tutor. Setting up a time and location that worked for me was simple, he was early, and he offered to stay a few minutes late if I needed it. He made me feel more confident in some basic concepts of Organic Chemistry, which isn't easy to do!
