About Albert

I am a Ph.D. in physics, and I have taught physics, engineering, and solar energy courses at the college level. My work background has been focused on product development in the energy area, including renewable resources, battery development, and geothermal energy storage.

I can relate to the challenges of teaching physics, math and engineering. These subjects are all about fundamental understanding, a technique for solving problems, and plenty of practice. I am a good communicator, and can easily convey 1) what the problem is asking 2) the methodology to solve it, and 3) why. I will be happy to work with students that need help, want help, and are willing to work to gain the understanding of how to proceed.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Differential Equations

I hold a Ph.D. in physics and well versed in solving differential equations, including methods such as separation of variables. For example, I have created a simulation tool for assessing geothermal ground source heat pump vertical loop performance. This software produces a closed form solution for the propagation of heat through rock which utilizes the separation of variables method for solving Bessel function solutions.

Mechanical Engineering

I was a C level engineering manager for GE, and named engineer of the year. I have taught engineering heat transfer, thermodynamics, physics, renewable energy (solar & wind) courses at college. I have an active web based geothermal design course that I developed for Heat Spring Learning Institute.

My 10 grader was struggling with math, and Albert helped get her up to speed quickly. After a month of weekly sessions with Albert, she is now getting mostly A's. Albert is kind and very good with the kids. I highly recommend him.
