AP Chemistry Tutoring Online
Why an Advanced Placement Chemistry course?
- The AP Chemistry course is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry course usually taken during the first college year.
- The AP Chemistry course exposes the student to a universe of knowledge that is unexplored at high school.
- AP Chemistry gives the student a credit for general chemistry during the first college year.
- AP Chemistry helps the student to register for courses in other fields where general chemistry is a prerequisite.
- AP Chemistry fulfills the lab science requirement. Outside the U.S., universities in more than 60 countries recognize AP in their admissions processes.
Who can take up an AP chemistry course?Students who are successfully completed their first course in high school chemistry. It is recommended that students successfully complete a second-year algebra course.
What does a student get from at eTutorWorld?
- eTutorWorld helps students get 5 credits on their AP scores.
- Students get an in depth understanding of fundamentals and reasonable competence in dealing with chemical problems.
- Our AP Chem Tutors help students to think clearly and express their ideas orally and in writing with clarity and logic.
- Students will develop the required intellectual skills in chemistry.
More on AP chemistry…
- Students in an AP Chemistry course should spend at least five hours a week in individual study outside of the classroom.
- Calculators or equation tables are not permitted on the multiple-choice section of the AP Chemistry Exam. For the last 40 minutes (Part B) of the exam, students will work without calculators on the free-response section.
- Students will develop the required intellectual skills in chemistry.

Give Your Child The eTutorWorld Advantage
Research has proven that personal online tutoring not just cements school learning, it helps build student confidence. eTutorWorld provides the best K-12 Online Tutoring Services so you can learn from the comfort and safety of your home at an affordable cost.
Be it an exam, class test or a quiz, eTutorWorld’s Math, Science and English tutors are responsible for your academic progress. Meet your personal coach at your convenient day and time to get help for Grade 3-12 Math, Science and English subjects and AP, SAT, SSAT and SCAT Test Prep help and test practice. All our tutors are graduates and bring with them years of teaching experience to the tutoring lessons.
Our ‘Learning by Design’ methodology makes sure that each student is at the center of the teaching-learning process. All tutoring sessions start with a question to the student ‘What do you want to learn today?’ Hence, tutors diagnose your skills and recognize your requirements before the actual tutoring happens. Post every tutoring session, an individualized worksheet is emailed to the student to assimilate learned concepts. Regular formative assessments are used to evaluate a student’s understanding of the subject.
The state of the art technology used is stable, user friendly and safe. All you need is a computer or a tablet and an internet connection. The easy-to-use web conferencing software requires a one time download, using which the student can talk and chat to the tutor, annotate on an interactive shared whiteboard or even share documents, assignments or worksheets.
All tutoring sessions are recorded and made available for a month so you can review concepts taught.
Email or call our support team with any issues or questions – we are here for you 24X7.
Also, download free printable math and science worksheets in pdf format and solve SCAT and SSAT Practice Tests online. Sign up for a Free Trial Lesson Today!
