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:

AP Physics C Tutoring

AP Physics C is divided into two different parts. You could opt for taking both exams on the same day or take each part separately. Both courses are calculus based with AP Physics C: Mechanics being equivalent to a semester of College level Physics course. AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism is also similar to a semester of College Physics course that specializes in electricity & magnetism. All courses are offered by the “American College Board.” The exams are also conducted by the College Board with students being offered College credits after completing the test successfully.

Online AP Physics Tutoring

Handling the pressure of attending regular school and studying for AP physics simultaneously can be challenging. It is best to enroll for online personalized tutoring sessions and ace the exam with the required score. Expert Physics tutors at eTutorWorld are knowledgeable about the topics included in each course and equipped to guide their students perfectly. Physics theories related to mechanics or electricity & magnetism are taught in an environment conducive to learning each concept that is explained clearly to the students. Each session also prepares the students for a hands-on laboratory experience in change, force interactions, fields, and conservation.
