AP Physics (Mechanics) and AP Physics (Electricity & Magnetism) is a Weekly AP Review and Test Prep class. It is designed for students who are currently taking AP Physics (Mechanics) and AP Physics (E&M). This course helps students achieve solid A in their base schools and enable them to be well prepared for the AP Physics Test in May.
The AP Physics class will focus on the critical AP Physics test and problem solving in AP Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism. It will review comprehensive knowledge and concepts in the May AP Physics test, which includes two major parts: AP Physics (Mechanics) and AP Physics (E & M).
In class, students will be actively engaged in challenging problem solving, difficult Physics formula learning, and strategic test taking skills. The majority of our former students achieved a perfect score of 5 on the AP test and scores of 700-800 for the SAT Physics Test.

AP Physics Instructor Dr. D. Luzader
Dr. Luzader is an experienced instructor who holds master’s degrees and a PhD in Physics. She received degrees from Northeastern University, and University of Maryland. Dr. D. has more than 26 years of teaching college-level Physics at a State University in Maryland. She conducted Physics research with CERN (European Nuclear Research Center, Geneva, Switzerland), and University of Maryland. Dr. Luzader enjoys teaching and tutoring AP Physics to high school students. She directed summer physics camp for middle and high school students. She joined Oakton Academy’s AP Physics teaching team in 2018, and is most excited about teaching AP Physics C to our juniors and seniors as well as Introduction to AP Physics to freshmen and sophomores at Oakton Academy. She is one of the most inspirational Physics teachers. Many of her High School students achieved A’s in their AP Physics study, including TJ students.
AP Physics Instructor Dr. Frank Lu
Dr. Lu is an experienced teacher with a PhD in Physics & Artificial Intelligence. 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 also tutored and taught students from TJ, Oakton, Madison, and Langley High Schools as well as other private schools, such as Flint Hill, Potomac School in Oakton and McLean. Dr. Lu’s students have received outstanding scores in SAT Physics (700 – 800) and AP Physics (5).
Dr. Lu’s unique instructional method and teaching style includes problem solving, sharpening students’ understanding of key concepts, enabling students to apply those concepts to solve real Physics problems in life, and building a solid foundation for the rigorous AP Physics.
From 2014 to 2022, many of Dr. Lu’s AP and SAT Physics students reported their admission to top schools, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, U Chicago, Duke, Georgetown, UPenn, Carnegie Mellon, NYU, UC Berkeley, UIUC, Vanderbilt, UVA, California Tech, Georgia Tech, V Tech, and other great colleges. A big congratulation to our seniors!
