About Douglas

Hello and I hope you are having a wonderful day!

I completed my PhD in nuclear engineering at Penn State. I have successfully instructed physics and several engineering courses at Penn State. During my undergraduate studies, I was employed by the university as a peer tutor for many of the mathematics, science, and engineering courses offered at the university.

Throughout my academic studies, I have tutored students of all ages to improved grades in the following areas: Physics (PHYS 211, PHYS 212, PHYS 213, PHYS 214, PHYS 250, PHYS 251), Chemistry (CHEM 110, CHEM 112), Algebra (MATH 21, MATH 22), Calculus (MATH 140, MATH 141, MATH 230, MATH 231), Trig/Precalc (MATH 26), Matrices/Linear Algebra (MATH 220), Differential Equations (MATH 250, MATH 251), Geometry, Computer Programming (C++, FORTRAN, MATLAB), Statistics (STAT 200), and Engineering Principles (E MCH 211 - Statics, E MCH 212 - Dynamics, E MCH 210 - Statics and Strengths, Fluid Flow, and Heat Transfer). If you don't see the specific course please contact me with your course details and I will be certain to let you know what assistance I can offer.

I am always willing to alter my methods to fit the learning methods and needs of each individual student. I am also experienced in tutoring group sessions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

AutoCAD

I was taught AUTOCAD as part of my engineering curriculum. I have also utilized and successfully taught AutoCAD as a portion of the introduction to engineering course.

Basketball

I played several years of basketball throughout my middle school and high school years and assisted with youth programs in my local community.

C++

I have successfully completed several courses in computer programming using the C++ language. I have also tutored fellow students through the university tutoring center.

Computer Programming

Throughout my academic career, I have learned and utilized programming skills in programming languages including C++, FORTRAN, PASCAL, VISUAL BASIC, and MATLAB. My most recent research has utilized FORTRAN and MATLAB extensively including creation and execution of several source code files for data processing and correlation verification.

Differential Equations

Differential Equations was a course I successfully completed with an 'A' as a student. I have successfully tutored students in the course since that time in both MATH 250 and MATH 251 as offered at Penn State. I have familiarity with tutoring students utilizing the textbooks by Zill and Wright as well as that by Boyce and DiPrima.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored students at various ages primarily in math and sciences, but have also assisted students in other subjects such as geography, social studies, and grammar.

Fortran

I have experience with several versions of FORTRAN including, FORTRAN77, FORTRAN95, and Compaq Visual Fortran. My undergraduate and graduate theses included creation of several programs for post processing of data and additional analysis. These programs included I/O portions to enable multiple uses.

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra (Matrices) was a course I successfully completed with an 'A' as a student. I have successfully tutored students in the course since that time in MATH 220 as it is offered at Penn State. I have familiarity with tutoring students utilizing the textbook by David Lay accordingly.

MATLAB

Throughout my academic career, I have learned and utilized skills in MATLAB including the use of the software and the creation of m file programs. My most recent research has utilized MATLAB extensively in data processing and graphical presentation of that data.

MCAT

I have successfully tutored previous students in the key physical sciences subject areas of general chemistry and physics in preparation for MCAT testing. These students have performed well on this section of the MCAT.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a PhD in Nuclear Engineering with research focus in Thermal Hydraulics. I am currently an instructor of mechanical engineering technology.

Soccer

I played several years of soccer in high school and assisted with youth soccer programs in my local community.
