## The Best Statics Tutor on Wyzant

James, 4 lessons with DouglasDouglas is by far one of the best tutors on this platform. He helped me understand various statics topics and was able to direct me to useful tables and diagrams in my textbook. Without Douglas’ help, I would not have been able to pull off an A for the semester. If I need help in dynamics or mechanics of materials next year, Douglas will be the first person I reach out to for help.

Hello, my name is Doug, and I would like to first introduce myself, as I believe I can be the BEST ACADEMIC TUTOR for you!

Over 25 years of tutoring experience in a variety of courses/subjects, including math, physics and engineering!

Regarding education background, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science from Penn State University with a minor in Engineering Mechanics. I was also a Schreyer Honors College student, made Dean's List, inducted to several honor societies, and...
