Physics principles often require abstract thinking, which can be challenging. We help bridge the gap between the abstract and the concrete by using relatable, real-world examples that illustrate these principles in action.
AP Physics requires proficiency in algebra, trigonometry, and sometimes calculus. We provide support to solidify these mathematical skills, ensuring students can comfortably apply them in the context of physics problems.
Physics problems can be complex and multifaceted. We guide students in breaking down problems, understanding the principles at play, and approaching solutions methodically.
Physics is not only about theory, but also about experimentation. We support students in understanding lab equipment, procedures, and safety protocols, as well as in interpreting and analyzing experimental results.
Units and Dimensions
Physics problems often involve different units and dimensions. Students can struggle with converting and manipulating these. We provide strategies and practice in dealing with units and dimensions.
Drawing and Interpreting Diagrams
Visualizing problems in physics is crucial. We help students master the art of drawing and interpreting diagrams to better understand and solve problems.
We connect complex physics concepts to everyday phenomena, helping students visualize and internalize abstract principles.
Physics problems can be intricate. We teach students to break down problems into manageable parts, identify the applicable principles, and build a solution step-by-step.
We conduct guided lab activities, allowing students to learn by doing. This hands-on approach not only reinforces theoretical learning but also familiarizes students with experimental procedures and data analysis.
Integration of Math Skills
Physics is closely tied to mathematics. We design exercises to interleave physics and math skills, helping students see the connections and build competency in both.
Visual Aids and Simulations
Physics can be highly visual. We use diagrams, animations, and digital simulations to help students understand spatial and temporal aspects of physics concepts, such as motion, fields, and waves.
Conceptual and Numerical Problems
We ensure a balanced focus on both conceptual understanding and numerical problem-solving skills. Regular practice with both types of problems prepares students for the demands of the AP Physics exam.

Our tutors embody warmth and approachability. They foster an engaging learning environment, facilitating open communication and making students feel comfortable asking questions or expressing concerns.
Example AP Physics Tutoring Packages
We offer diverse and flexible options, catering to your child's unique needs and your family's schedule. Choose from ad-hoc sessions for immediate needs, to long-term plans for ongoing support.
Our most common tutoring plans:
This package offers regular tutoring sessions for an entire academic semester, ensuring consistent support for the student. The frequency could be 1-3 times per week depending on the need.
This offers more frequent sessions over a one-month period. This could be suitable for a student who needs to catch up quickly or prepare for an important exam.
For students who require tutoring on a more sporadic or as-needed basis.
