I am a well Experienced Science (Chemistry, Physics) Educator and a PhD Scientist in Engineering from UCLA with many years of experience in teaching Chemistry & Physics and truly passionate in what I do, very friendly and patient with my students but strict when it's needed !!
I always get highly complimented from my Chemistry and Physics students and their parents who had great improvements in their grades and recommended to their friends. Most of my students get A's A+s!! and only a few B's...
Reviews
Helped review my chemistry assignment quickly and accurately identified where I went wrong and how the problem is generally solved. Received an A on the assignment!!

We are from Jamaica and it was recommended for my son to sit some AP exams to make his college application more competitive. He was doing physics at his school in Jamaica but AP is not generally done here. After being evaluated by another Wyzant tutor, who told us he did not think there was sufficient time to prepare my son to do well in the exam, I then reached out to Dr Wick for a ?second opinion?. DJ evaluated AJs knowledge from his school curriculum and devised a plan to get him prepared with only two months to go. We were ecstatic when AJ got a 4. This would not have been possible without the hard work, effort, dedication and teaching style of DJ. I cannot say enough good things about this man!

We were very happy with DJ?s tutoring and the results speak for themselves! He is patient and methodical and my son came out of his weekly Physics tutoring sessions with DJ confident and really feeling like he had an excellent grasp of the material covered. I highly recommend him!

Dr. DJ W has been tutoring my son in Physics and Pre Calculus now for a couple months. He was struggling in both classes and simply not understanding the material and concepts that were being taught. After several lessons he not only has a great understanding of the material being taught in class he has also increased his confidence. He finished up the the fourth quarter of his Junior year with a 99.6% in physics and 95% in his math class. Thank you Dr. DJ W for all of your help as well as awesome communication on this tutoring platform. We are grateful to have found you on Wyzant.

Dr. DJ W is an exceptional tutor. I highly recommend any student facing challenges with Chemistry/Organic Chemistry/Physics to reach out and work with Dr. DJ. Last semester, I struggled with general chemistry I and received a ?C.? This semester I was able to obtain with an ?A? with Dr. DJ?s support. He is able to take a complex theory/concept and break it down that works specifically for your learning style. Dr. DJ also takes time to learn how your class is setup and how the professor teaches. He does a great job taking your weaknesses and turning them into strengths. There is no question that he is a master at his skill and subjects; what is great about Dr. DJ, is that he wants all of his students to be just as skillful as he is. He is willing to work with you and help you in anyway possible. I plan to continue to work with Dr. DJ in the future, for my other science courses.

Dr. DJW is so great at explaining complex physics concepts and making them easy to understand. My daughter looks forward to meeting with him, as she feels confident afterward about taking a test or completing a project. She has an A in her class. We feel so lucky to have found him as a tutor!
- Chris V. from Oakland, CA
Wonderful tutor. My son had so far 2 sessions with only and already feeling great about his progress . Highly recommend him
- Elham N. from Los Altos, CA
We are so thankful to have found Dr. DJ W. He has helped our son so much. According to my son, he explains things in a way his high school teacher does not. He is able to understand what is being taught and is able to apply the concepts and formulas to his high school assignments and curriculum. So thankful we found this awesome platform for tutoring. We love it!!

Dr. Wike taught and tutored me through my first semester of physics, classical mechanics. I tried reaching out to more than one tutor and none of them was able to effectively help. I was half way through the semester and not doing very well. I was on the verge of failing. Dr. Wike was the only one who reached out to and seemed eager to help me through this rough patch. He encouraged and reassured that it was still possible to pass with a good grade. He was very patient and understanding. He was very thorough doing things such as reviewing my professor's lecture notes before a tutoring session and helping me through the week via message or a zoom phone call. When finals came, he was able to schedule me for extra sessions before my exam. Before I took my final he sent me one more encouraging message that I really appreciated. I took my exam more confident than any other test this semester. I did well and passed. I really appreciated all of his time. Without him, I don't think I would have passed my class.

I?m a college student who used to feel overwhelmed by chemistry, until I started working with DJ. He is, without a doubt, a better teacher than any chemistry professor I?ve had in undergrad. DJ?s thoughtful explanations have made some of the most difficult topics feel straightforward. He helped me organize my approach to problem solving, and taught me to recognize the gaps in my understanding of the material in time for my exams. DJ has a habit of working future concepts and harder types of problems into practice, but he explains everything so clearly, you don?t even realize that you?ve passed the material covered in class. He?s also a lovely, incredibly patient person, who has helped me time and time again with answers to my last minute questions. 10/10!!
- Jane B. from Sherman Oaks, CA
DJ stepped in to help my college freshman prepare for final exams in chemistry. His approach and style together with his deep knowledge of the content was outstanding. He took the time to understand my son's course syllabus, prior exams and class content then tailored his tutoring to what my son needed. My son was very comfortable and enjoyed working with him. DJ is on our list to help with future chemistry and physics courses! Highly recommend DJ!
- Kimberly H. from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
My daughter had a great experience with DJ. He was very good at explaining concepts to her and giving her clear ways to solve problems. He took the time to go over the concepts completely and gave her extra practice problems to do. She felt very comfortable with the material by the end of their sessions. We will definitely be using him again!
- Jeanie W. from Palo Alto, CA
DJ is a patient and knowledgeable tutor. He explains the material in a way that is not only clear but also interesting. He makes sure to tailor the lesson to the learning style of the student. In addition, he knows the AP Chemistry curriculum like the back of his hand, and is expert in preparing students for quizzes and tests. My daughter has been maintaining a 98 average consistently, and has also developed a love of chemistry.
- Elizabeth G. from New York, NY
My daughter Hayley tends to be very picky about tutors. Frankly she?s picky about everything in life. There was no question that DJ impressed her more than any other tutor or even teacher she?s had. She is a sophomore in a school and has plenty of experience with both! She came away with a confidence in chemistry I have not seen before. DJ is the GOAT!
- Brett B. from Laguna Niguel, CA
Helped me answer and understand in a short period of time ! So helpful!! Highly recommend!! Answered my email immediately! Definitely will use him again!
- Donna L. from Staten Island, NY
DJ is sure to give you thorough updates on the progress that was made in sessions. He gives extra work for concepts that may be more difficult and makes sure my son understands everything prior to the end of the session. First exam today since we started. I am confident it will go well.
- Amber D. from Los Angeles, CA
So my son didn?t realize the time last night and was late to his session. DJ could have been ?oh well? about it but instead was very understanding. He exhibited patience throughout the lesson and my son continues to get a greater grasp of his college chemistry course.
- Amber D. from Los Angeles, CA
DJ brought my son from a 42 in physics to an A!!!! He is gentle, punctual, wicked smart and very very kind - yet persistent and funny and just a wonderful person to spend time with under any circumstances!!! We are so very grateful!
- Kristin J. from Pacific Palisades, CA
My son reports the session was very helpful. To have someone actually walk him through the steps and teach along the way was invaluable. He already feels more confident in navigating his college chemistry course moving forward
- Amber D. from Los Angeles, CA
Enjoyed my session with DJ. He?s a Good communicator. He was very through and detailed explanations. Made a tough topic very approachable.
