Meet David Celatka: High School Math & Science Tutor.
From the day I stepped into the role of a karate instructor at age eight in my hometown of Ashland, Massachusetts, to my current work as a high school chemistry teacher, I have long been dedicated to the world of teaching and learning. Working with students of all ages, whether tackling a challenging problem in school or freeing a stuck canoe at summer camp, has brought me incredible joy.
As a tutor, I build strong positive relationships and make academic content relevant to students. I teach passionately and always cater my instruction to my specific student. I aim to bring enthusiasm, purpose, and appreciation for learning and for every student to see themselves and be motivated to achieve their true potential.
