About Lucia

My teaching experience began in graduate school at UIUC as a TA for laboratory courses in mechanical engineering, continued at Iowa State University where I taught fluid mechanics and aerodynamics. After entering semi-retirement, I began private tutoring in Oct. 2014. I generally limit to four students at a time and have tutored 16 students privately.

Students have generally improved their grades about 1 letter grade and sometimes 2. The results depends somewhat on when tutoring began. I've also helped two students with intensive 'finishing' preparation for the AP Physics C exam working all available multiple choice from leaked tests during April of last year. Both students achieved 5s on the exam.
