My first experience with them was very satisfying. My kids seem to love it as the tutor also knows the subject. So far although it’s my first session, if it continues as it has started or even get better, my three kids will be with this program through high school

Important Changes in the AP Exams 2020 due to the Novel Corona Virus Outbreak

  • Instead of the traditional face-to-face exam administrations, students will take a 45-minute online free-response exam at home. 
  • For each AP subject, there will be 2 different testing dates.
  • The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing details will be available by April 3. 
  • Any student already registered for an exam can choose to cancel at no charge.
  • Not all the topics listed on the AP Physics course will be included in the AP Exam 2020. Below is a list of the topics that will be covered and those which not be:
AP SubjectExam Question(s) will only cover: Exam Question(s) will NOT cover:
Calculus AB Units 1-7Unit 8
Calculus BC Units 1-8 + 5 topics in Unit 10 (10.2, 10.5, 10.7, 10.8, and 10.11)Unit 9, Unit 10 (except Topics 10.2, 10.5, 10.7, 10.8, and 10.11)

You will find it beneficial to take the help of an AP Calculus tutor online especially when you hope to pursue math in college. The course, offered by the American College Board consists of two different parts namely AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC. The former will introduce you to derivatives, integers and limits while the latter will cover a range of additional topics in addition. Both courses are similar to college calculus course taught in first year at American Colleges and Universities. It is impossible to take both exams simultaneously as the dates usually clash. However, you can opt for one or the other according to your comfort level. You will be pleased to learn that you qualify for receiving a sub score based on your performance in AB Calculus if you choose to take Calculus BC after AB.
