« Lucia is a caring and very professional teacher. I am a physics student at university, taking physics for the first time in my life, and I struggled with understanding the concepts. She is kind and approachable and I felt comfortable asking all my questions. Her explanations are very clear and she breaks down every problem and what I like best is that she uses real life examples that really simply explain the physics concepts in a way that makes sense! By breaking down each problem into more manageable parts, I could understand how to actually solve problems and did much better on exams. I know that without having Lucia as my tutor, I would not have been able to do well in physics. I trust her and I would recommend her to any student struggling in physics. »

Physics tutor in Lisle/Naperville: Conceptual, Honors, & AP Phys 1,2& C. Experienced with local curricula.

Methodology

I am experienced tutor who loves to help students having trouble in their entry level course in physics. I am available for anything from homework help, providing extra AP Physics level and individualized summer courses to help students get a head start on difficult physics concepts and applications.

BS. Mechanical Engineering Illinois Institute of Technology.
MS. Mechanical Engineering UIUC
Ph. D. Mechanical Engineering UIUC

Background

My teaching experience began in graduate school at UIUC as a TA for laboratory courses in mechanical engineering, continued at Iowa State University where I taught fluid mechanics and aerodynamics. After entering semi-retirement, I began private tutoring in Oct. 2014. I generally limit to four students at a time and have tutored 16 students privately.

Students have generally improved their grades about 1 letter grade and sometimes 2. The results depends somewhat on when tutoring began. I've also helped two students with intensive 'finishing' preparation for the AP Physics C exam working all available multiple choice from leaked tests during April of last year. Both students achieved 5s on the exam.
