Physics Tutoring in Atlanta

Physics is the study of matter and its movement through space and time. The main principles of physics, matter and force, require a more advanced understanding of mathematics than other high school science courses do. It is often considered a more difficult course because of the math it requires of students, and not all students will elect to take physics because of this.

AP Physics comprises two main courses, AP Physics 1 & 2; two additional AP Physics C courses are also available. All AP Physics classes are algebra-based courses that explore college level topics such as Newtonian physics and fluid dynamics. As with other AP science courses, twenty-five percent of the course is spent doing lab work that reinforces what students learn in the classroom. Students considering taking physics, especially those considering the AP version, should consider taking a mathematics refresher course before enrolling.

The Learning Island provides private one-on-one tutoring in all aspects of science. Our tutors work with students and their parents to assess where each student is right now and to develop a customized lesson plan tailored to his or her needs. Students can receive a review of the fundamentals of the scientific method and how scientists make and test predictions. We explain the process of evolution as it applies to biology and simplify chemical reactions in chemistry. We take the mystery out of Newtonian physics and fluid dynamics and provide a review of the math used in physics classes.

Tutors provide students with the tools and vocabulary to understand scientific passages, study better, and make the most productive use of their homework time. We also show students what is expected of them during laboratory classes and can even help them memorize that pesky periodic table of elements. Finally, we provide comprehensive reviews and study sessions for exams. Whether a student is seriously struggling or simply needs a little extra help with a difficult class, we can help them improve and grow to be their best.
