AP Physics C Tutoring

AP Physics C (Mechanics + Electricity & Magnetism)

Both the AP Physics C courses serve as a strong foundation in physics for students majoring in the physical sciences or engineering during their college years.


Who can take up the AP Physics C Courses?

  • Students who have the knowledge of the introductory college physics courses.
  • A previous or concurrent course in calculus is often required of students taking Physics C

What is the AP Physics Course C all about?

  • The AP Physics course C covers two major areas: mechanics, and electricity and magnetism, with equal emphasis on both. Students may take either or both the AP Physics C exams, and separate grades are reported.
  • Although fewer topics are covered in Physics C than in Physics 1 & 2, they are covered in greater depth, including calculus applications.

What does a student get at eTutorWorld?

  • At eTutorWorld, we design approaches that best fit the needs of our students so the goals of the course are met.
  • Students are able to read, understand, and interpret physical information – verbal, mathematical and graphical.
  • Students learn to describe and explain the sequence of steps in the analysis of a physical phenomenon or  problem.
  • Students use basic mathematical reasoning to solve a physical problem.

Learn with expert AP Physics teachers. The tutors here are empowered with the best technology and the training for online AP Physics tutoring. They coach students through individualized learning sessions that they can take from the comfort of their homes.
