# Academic Tutoring

##### We run the gamut in terms of subject diversity. Here are the range of subjects our service offers:

Math

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is a broad topic in math but one of the most fundamental skill/topic that is essential to doing well throughout the rest of the math courses. It involves expressions, systems of equations, functions, real numbers, inequalities, exponents, polynomials, radical and rational expressions. As opposed to simple arithmetic, Algebra I is the introduction of symbols to denote numbers that are unknown but can be solved when an equation is setup.

It is a fundamental topic for students to learn to aid understanding in future math courses.

Geometry

Geometry involves shapes and positions where math can be used to solve particular shape-related equations. It involves plane geometry, 3d shapes, and the challenging proof-related questions of Geometry. This is the first time students have to relate math to visual objects.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 includes many subject topics including linear equations, inequalities, graphs, matrices, polynomials and radical expressions, quadratic equations, functions, exponential and logarithmic expressions, sequences and series, probability and sometimes trigonometry. Algebra 2 expands upon and extends the knowledge that was explored in Algebra 1.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is the study of triangles. It is basically Geometry but instead involves triangles. It is about finding missing sides and angles of triangles along with using special functions. Sometimes it is taught as a separate course from Precalculus, sometimes it is combined with that course.

Precalculus

Precalculus combines both advanced algebra with a bit of Trigonometry to prepare students for Calculus. Sometimes it is a separate course altogether from Trigonometry, sometimes it is combined. Precalculus focuses on particular topics that are at times approached in Calculus, though does not focus on the fundamental techniques that Calculus requires.

Calculus

Calculus, in short, is the topic on change. It involves Differentiating and Integration, particular methods or techniques that helps solve advanced math problems and decipher in depth on how things are changing. Calculus is quite applicable to many real life situations and involves some critical thinking at times. Because of this, Calculus can be quite challenging for some.

English

Writing

Writing is an essential and critical skill for all students. The ability to write effectively and to communicate one’s message through writing is a necessity that extends into professional world.

Our writing tutors are capable of improving a student’s writing skills so that he or she is able to communicate more effectively.

Grammar

Grammar and writing go hand in hand. Grammar is also a crucial skill just as writing is, and it is necessary to follow grammar rules so that in order to write articulately.

English Literature

American/British Literature not only improves reading and essential skills but also teaches students to think critically and to analyze literature within its historical context.

Science

Chemistry

Chemistry is a science of matter and of things near or at atomic level. This is the study of things that are not visible by the naked eye and composes all matter of things at the most fundamental level. It is the basis for all the sciences because it is the understanding of these small matter. It also includes the interactions between different atoms, properties of matter, and various applications utilizing these interactions.

Our Chemistry tutors can assist with understanding down to the most fundamental levels of knowledge in this subjects.

Biology

Biology is the, simply put, study of life. Unlike Chemistry which deals with matter at the most fundamental level, Biology involves the study of life that usually ranges from a cellular level to full functioning organism. It is the study of interactions and changes that are present throughout an organisms life. Biology is an essential topic for all of sciences.

Our Biology tutors can aid in understanding the vast knowledge of information behind Biology.

Physics

Physics is the science of matter and how they interact. It overlaps the study of Chemistry as it includes topics of atoms, and of what matter is composed of. However, Physics is heavily math based and involves the studies of forces and their interactions with the environment.

Our Physics Tutors come prepared with many years of knowledge and teaching physics and can aid the difficult topics of Physics as it can be a challenging topic for many.

History

US History

US History covers a wide range of significant historical events such as the establishment of the colonies, the Slave trade, US Constitution, American Revolution, Industrial Revolution, World I & II, the Cold War, and chosen modern events. All these pivotal events will be analyzed and interpreted within the proper historical context.

European History

European History, or aka Western Civilization, covers trends and topics involving the late Roman Empire, the Dark Ages, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and World War I & II.

World History

World History is the study of global events and trends that have shaped the world we live in today. Depending on the scope and depth of the course, World History can extend from pre-civilization times to modern day events. It examines the studies of political, scientific, philosophy, military conflict, literature, economics and many more topics. This course shows relationships between different cultures and between past and present. This course relies on comprehension, memorization, and critical analysis.

Counseling

Career Exploration

Career exploration is incredibly important for a student as he or she enters college. It determines the course and the beginnings of what he or she might do for the rest of one’s life. Because of such a high commitment, a student needs to explore different careers and pathways so that he or she can be more fully aware of what his or her options are for the future.

Our tutors can help a student explore and sketch out different pathways for the future.

College Counseling

Just like career exploration is an incredibly important action, College counseling is equally important as it involves determining what culture a student will be presented with and the type of students he or she will be surrounded for the ever so crucial 4 years after high school. It is the beginnings of true independence for students and the learn more about the world on a bigger scale.

Our College Counseling tutors can assist by helping you understand the requirements to get into colleges and to explore what particular colleges are like.
