AP Physics: MECHANICS

Instructor:  Dr. Frank Lu is an experienced teacher with PhD in Physics & Artificial Intelligence (AI) . He received degrees from Fudan University, University of Maryland, and Duke University. Dr. Lu taught college students at UMBC (MD), and American University (DC). He has also tutored and taught students from TJ, Oakton, McLean, Langley, Madison, Centreville, Westfield,  as well as other private schools.

Dr. Lu’s unique instructional method and interactive teaching style includes problem solving sessions, individualized teaching of key concepts in the small group setting, enabling students to apply Physics concepts to solve problems in real life, and building a solid foundation for the rigorous AP Physics exam required by College Board.

Many students received excellent scores in SAT Physics (700 – 800) and AP Physics (5). Most recently, a student reported to us that he received 770 for SAT Physics after taking Dr. Lu’s Physics class, and another student received 800 for SAT Physics (May 2017). 86% of the students received solid A’s in their base schools for the AP Physics course. Congratulations to the students who have taken our AP Physics class.

One student from Langley HS commented: “This AP Physics class was the only one I’ve taken in which I did not waste any time during the class. Everything Dr. Lu taught helped me learn and understand AP Physics. I received A and also got 5 for AP Physics, and 770 for SAT. Dr. Lu is the best teacher I have ever had. ” (a note from John. C)

A student from Oakton HS shared that: “The class helped me understand the difficult concept in Physics. Each week, we brought challenging questions and problems to class, and learned together as a group with Dr. Lu’s strategy, coaching, and guidance. I got an A in my AP Physics class. I am thrilled with my progress and can’t believe how much I’ve learned.”  (a note from Alex W.)

Since 2014, Dr. Lu’s AP and SAT Physics students have updated us on their college admissions. Some got into top schools such as Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Columbia, University of Chicago, UPenn, Georgetown, Berkeley, NYU, and other great colleges. Congratulations to all outstanding students!
