About William

I have experience as a naval officer, all phases of Mechanical Engineering, have performed research on the doctoral and post doctoral level, and I am particularly interested in heat transfer, mathematics, fluid dynamics, and astronomy (on a non-professional level). As an adjunct professor, I have taught undergraduate thermodynamics, advanced calculus and Engineering Statics (physics). I have assisted my students with difficult points individually and have helped other young people with math and physics when asked.

The "light bulb" went on for me in 8th grade math class. My teacher explained something to the class, and for some reason, all my puzzling doubts melted away. I always thought it would be good to share my hard won knowledge with others who are struggling to learn. I have been there, too.

My abilities in mathematics and physics have served me well, and I was privileged to attain a Ph.D. in engineering and to pursue a successful career, I make no claims to formal training as an educator; however, if you have problems and need help, we will work on it and get it sorted out.

If you need help, I offer you my assistance.

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.

Mechanical Engineering

I hold the degree of Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. My area of expertise is in Heat Transfer, Fluid Dynamics, and Thermodynamics. I have taught courses in under-graduate Thermodynamics, Engineering Statics, Calculus and Linear Algebra. I did doctoral research on porous media heat transfer, continuing and post doctoral research on that topic at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. I am a professional engineer and a certified energy manager. The method I use is the classical way to learn a subject: understand the concepts and to cement this by working problems and exercises. This method has served me well in my career.
