About Hank
Stop right there!
You finally found me: your one-stop shop for chemistry, physics, and generally-all-things-physical-science-related help!

Who I am: I am a veteran physics, chemistry, engineering, and tech-ed teacher at the Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy. My Pennsylvania teaching certifications are in chemistry, physics, and technology education. I have been at the school since it opened its doors in 2009. Prior to teaching, I worked as a chemical engineer and a stock trader. I've performed on Broadway (yes THAT one in NYC), and I used to play the bassoon. I love to ski and play with my two children.

Why I am here: I mentioned that I was a chemical engineer by education... but now I'm a teacher?!?? Why would I forsake a much more profitable career for one in education? Because I love teaching :) In the years that I di
dn't teach, I always found some hobby that involved teaching people to do stuff, whether it was being a ski instructor at Seven Springs, teaching tennis lessons, tutoring family friends, or teaching a session on stock markets and trading at CMU. I'm a teacher now, which means that I have most of my summer off. That's where you come in.

Why you should hire me: A book can teach you a lot of stuff, and if you are one of those few individuals who absorbs everything they see or read and become instant masters (think Neo learning Jiu Jitsu in the Matrix), then you don't need me, and really, you don't need anyone here. But if you're like most people, then some of the concepts might be a bit tricky and often a few helpful analogies and rephrasing of material is necessary. That's where I excel. If you struggle with concepts, I work to find ways to get the information into your mind in a way that might be more meaningful to you.

For example, I was teaching students about Newton's Third Law (action and reaction). I asked them if they had ever been driving down a highway and hit a bug. They answered yes, and then I asked them why the bug splattered instead of the windshield. Categorically, they gave me the incorrect answer of "well, the bug hit the windshield with more force, didn't it?" I didn't answer them, but instead I showed them a video clip of a drag race between a Lamborghini Aventador and a Bugatti Veyron. Both cars went 0-60 in under 3 seconds. Pretty impressive. I turned off the video and asked them the question about the bug again, and they seemed confused, so I nudged them a bit more. "How long did it take that Veyron to go from 0-60?" A student shouted out, "about 2.6 seconds!" Then I asked him, "and how long did it take that hovering insect to get from 0 to 60, which is how fast your car was going when you hit him?" Suddenly, light bulbs started to flicker... "that was instant, like milliseconds!" I smiled as others started weighing in. "Yeah, that bug went 0-60 in under a second, so its ACCELERATION was greater!" So I finally answered, "correct, the force of the bug hitting the windshield is EXACTLY the same (but in the other direction) as the force of the windshield hitting the bug. Using Newton's Second Law equation, F=ma, if the forces are equal, but the mass of the car is MUCH MUCH bigger than the mass of the bug, it's easy to see what happens...[huge differences in acceleration]. And that is what ultimately destroys the bug. It's like a phrase I once heard from a skydiver--it's not the fall that hurts. It's the sudden stop at the end that can kill ya."

I hope that example gives you insight into the type of tutor that I am. I hope to hear from you!

PS... you might think that my online rates don't reflect the standard discount that many other tutors here give their students. That is true. While I don't shun technology, I also understand its limitations. Both of my specialties (chemistry and physics) involve a lot of equations and drawings... these are easily conveyed in short time when face to face. But when having to draw on a camera and/or type equations with lots of subscripts and superscripts, a lot of time is wasted. I don't discourage online help outright, but I don't recommend it as an initial session. That is why my prices display only a modest discount.

Hank has easily been one of the best reasons why I was able to comprehend chemistry throughout the year. In a class where the teacher focuses on the student body rather than individual students. Hank taught me more than probably any of the students have learned throughout the year.

Mr. Lancet is my conceptual and AP Physics C teacher in high school at Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He makes difficult concepts simple and relatable to everyday life so that his students can understand and practice high level concepts with ease. His unique teaching style makes every class fun, happy, and energetic. His positive attitude radiates into his students making the learning environment much better than the average class. Mr. Lancet does more than just get his students to pass a national exam, he manages to show them how to think creatively and analytically to give them skills they can use for the rest of their lives no matter what field they chose to enter. What he teaches does not just stick in his students' minds for the duration of his class but rather stays with them. He posses the rare skill to make his students interested in learning, allowing them to retain more of the information presented to them. Unlike traditional teachers, Mr. Lancet creates unique and fun experiments that test what knowledge his students have gathered in his courses and provide them with first hand accounts of the conceptual and theoretical topics covered in his classes. After I graduate from high school, if I am ever confused about any topic, related to the physical sciences or otherwise, Mr. Hank Lancet would be my first call. In no circumstance would I ever hesitate to hire Mr. Lancet should I require the aid.

I had Mr. Hank as an engineering teacher at my high school. What you will quickly see is that he has a wealth of knowledge just waiting to be shared with others. He is able to teach nearly every aspect of engineering, whether that be technical instruction or explaining what goes into being a good engineering student.

It seems that his teaching style is leading students to their own conclusions by giving them hints and guidance along the way including physical examples and practice work. Mr. Hank also is an incredibly patient teacher/tutor. He will use as many approaches as necessary to make sure that you will understand a topic.

I would not hesitate to hire Mr. Hank as a tutor. If you need help in science or engineering, I guarantee that you will have a very rewarding experience with Hank.

About Jason
My educational background is in journalism with a minor in English and I've always been enamored with the literary and visual arts. I published my first book featuring poetry along with photography in 2006 and have since written four more.

My photography has been published in several magazine as well including the following:

Fahrenheit USA – Nov. 2015
My Belleza Inc. – April 2016
Tres Jolie – May 2016

In 2007, I started the business called Three Rivers Creative Arts providing creative service including photography, writing, editing and graphic design.

As a person who likes the opportunity to help others and to work with all of these types of areas, I thought that a great website like this one here at TakeLessons could allow me to do both.

Please check out my work on my official website at www.3riverscreative.com and thi
s page for links to sample work http://3riverscreative.com/more-info/.

Contact me first before booking an appointment as that my availability is sporadic.

Jason seemed very knowledgeable about website creation in general, and using WordPress in particular. He was quite helpful by introducing me to the basics of configuring my website, pointing out some "must-dos", and suggesting key things to keep in mind as I proceed with my blog/website. I certainly intend to rely on his expertise again in the near future.

About Marc
I have been teaching French at universities for 30 years and would love to share my passion for the language, literature, history, and culture to students. French is my first language, and I have spent many years living in French-speaking countries; I have lived in Vietnam, Lebanon, Morocco, and (of course) France.

Regardless of whether I am teaching language, civilization, or literature, my main goal is to help keep my students engaged, motivated and challenged in learning. I keep in mind that most students are not experienced world travelers and try to make what I am teaching accessible and engaging.

In teaching the French language I focus on developing conversational skills so the student will learn to speak with native competency. I have worked with students at all levels, from total beginners to doctoral candidates.

I am a
vailable most weekdays from 9 am to 3 pm, and I can travel to meet the student at a convenient location or teach online.

I look forward to working with you & helping you further your French language skills!

Hey there! I'm a fully bilingual (English & Spanish) graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh. I received my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at San Antonio and am now studying Rehabilitation Science and Technology. During my undergraduate career, I also took the necessary coursework to be considered a pre-med minor.

Additionally, I was also an all-around tutor for Sylvan Learning Center during the Summer of 2016. There, I taught children and teens of all ages on all of the subjects available. I also did a lot of ACT and SAT prep sessions.

My background as a Mexican-American, Mechanical Engineer, Pre-Med student. former Sylvan tutor and a current graduate student (which requires a lot of reading and writing) allows me to be a great instructor for subjects such as Spanish, Math, Science,
Language, and even ACT and SAT prep!

Jaime was an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TEACHER! He had the ability to work with students who were Pre-K through college. He could relate to them in a way that that fostered mutual trust and provided a safety zone for students to work and grow as life-long learners. I completely and wholeheartedly believe that he has can teach any subject from beginning reading to WHATEVER!
