AP Physics Review & AP Test Prep @ Oakton Academy
Near Vienna, Centerville, Chantilly, McLean, Falls Church, Fairfax, Virginia
AP Physics (Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism is an in-depth AP course review and AP exam prep class. It is assumed that the students are currently taking AP Physics 1, 2 or Honors Physics (Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism). This course is designed to help students weekly review important and key concepts, to achieve high A’s in their base schools. The AP Physics students who completed the class in the fall of 2017 and in the Spring of 2018 achieved A’s in their class (100%). It will further enable the students to successfully complete AP Physics Exam in May.
The course aligns with what the students learn at school, and will focus on critical AP Physics contents, key concepts, and especially problem solving in AP Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism. It will review comprehensive knowledge, new terminology, and key contents in the AP Physics test. The course includes two major parts: AP Physics (Mechanics) and AP Physics (E & M). In class, students will be actively engaged in challenging problem solving, learning difficult Physics formulas, and strategic test taking practice. The majority of our former students (more than 86%) achieved a perfect score of 5 on the AP test and scores of 700-800 for the SAT Physics Test.
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 University of Maryland at Baltimore County (MD), and American University in DC. He tutored and taught students from TJ, Oakton, Langley high school, as well as other private schools. His students received excellent scores in SAT Physics (700 – 800) and AP Physics (5).
Dr. Lu’s unique instructional method and teaching style includes: conduct challenging questions and problem solving sessions; sharp students’ understanding of key concepts; enable students to apply those concepts to solve real Physics problems in life; build solid foundation for the rigorous AP Physics. Many students commented that the small study and review group enable them to learn and understand Physics on a deeper level.
Since 2015, Dr. Lu’s AP and SAT Physics students reported their admission to top schools, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, UChicago, Cornell, Upenn, NYU, UC Berkeley, Columbia, and other top colleges. A big congratulation to our students and their families!
Dr. D. Luzader is another experienced instructor who holds both master’s degrees and a PhD in Physics. She has more than 24 years of teaching college-level Physics. She conducted Physics research with CERN (European Nuclear Research Center, Geneva, Switzerland), and the University of Maryland. Dr. Luzader has joined Oakton Academy’s AP Physics teaching team since 2018, and she enjoys teaching and tutoring our wonderful students at Oakton Academy.
