AP Physics 1 and 2 (Algebra based) Tutoring

Why Advanced Placement Physics 1 and 2 Courses?

AP Physics Courses 1 and 2 provide a foundation in physics for students in the life sciences, pre-medicine, and some applied sciences, as well as other fields not directly related to science. It is a preparation for more advanced physics and engineering courses. The course provides a systematic development of the main principles of physics; emphasizing problem solving and helping students develop a basic understanding of physics concepts. Students should be familiar with algebra and preferably trigonometry also else trigonometry topics will be covered in the course. Basic concepts of calculus are not required.

In early 2014, the College Board divided the AP Physics B syllabus into two one-year courses Physics 1 and Physics 2, both of which are algebra based. AP Physics C continues to be a calculus based course divided into Physics C – Mechanics and Physics C – Electricity and Magnetism.

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.
