I went to high school in Auckland and then did a BSc and PhD in physics at the University of Auckland. I then lectured in the Department of Physics at the University of Auckland for about ten years. I then left to gain more freedom to pursue my own research. I now tutor part-time while I continue with that research.

I've been tutoring for more than 30 years --- thousands of meetings, all of which have been enjoyable and rewarding for all involved.

I can also teach electronics, statistics, and chemistry.

For student comments, see my profile on TutorsHome (if you aren't familiar with TutorsHome, Google `TutorsHome' and then enter `Wardle' into the searchbox on the TutorsHome webpage).

I do NOT currently tutor online.

I live in St Albans Avenue, Mount Eden, so mainly serve:
Arch Hill, Balmoral, CBD, central city, Eden Terrace, Epsom, Freemans Bay, Grafton, Grey Lynn, Kingsland, Morningside, Mt Albert, Mt Eden, Mt Roskill, Newmarket, Newton, Owairaka, Ponsonby, Sandringham, St Lukes, Three Kings, Wesley, Western Springs

Meetings can be at your home, my home, or university, etc.

I have some commitments that change from week-to-week, but, otherwise, I'm available mornings, afternoons, and evenings, all seven days of the week.


PhD, University of Auckland, 1999.
BSc, University of Auckland, 1991.
Attended high school in Auckland.


Ten year's lecturing in the Department of Physics at the University of Auckland (including supervision of graduate students).

Over thirty year's tutoring experience at all levels (high school through to graduate level).


In addition to my ongoing physics research, I enjoy running, riding my bike, and time spent with family.

David is an excellent tutor - knowledgable, communicates well, approachable and supportive. I highly recommend him. He assisted catching up on several weeks of missed NCEA level 3 maths and physics classes.
He is generous with his time - doesnt charge for breaks - so you receive excellent value for money.

David is very nice, caring and considerate. I found him very honest and will tell you if you need tuition or not.

Dave is an excellent tutor. Incredibly knowledgeable and he gives really clear explanations. After only a handful of sessions with Dave, focusing on Algebra Level 2 and 3, I successfully passed my University of Auckland Tertiary Foundation Certificate entrance exam, with only one incorrect answer out of 40 questions, enabling me admission into the engineering pathway. I highly recommend Dave as a tutor.
