Reach out to us today if you think that your student would benefit from having this type of assistance with their education. Or, you can also keep reading to get a closer look at how private AP Physics C: Mechanics instruction can help your student grow academically.
As is the case with all AP courses, AP Physics C: Mechanics offers your student the chance to get a collegiate learning experience while still in high school. This can be beneficial to your student for a number of reasons. For example, the work that they do in this class can help them gain academic skills and knowledge that are hard to get out of a traditional high school class. Your student can also earn college credit for the work that they do in their course, provided that they pass the AP Physics C: Mechanics final exam. For these reasons and others, taking an AP course is a smart thing for a high school student to do.
Your student will get the opportunity to learn more about a wide variety of topics while taking their AP Physics C: Mechanics class. Specifically, they'll spend time learning about kinematics, Newton’s laws of motion, energy, power, work, gravitation, and much more. While learning about these topics, your student will also get the chance to sharpen a number of important academic skills. They'll get to improve their ability to analyze data shown in a graph, develop and support a scientific claim, design an experiment, and more. Going through this process in high school can give your student a head start as they move onto more challenging physics class in college.
Still, given the advanced topics that your student will be studying in their course, they may have trouble fully understanding some of the material they learn about. If this happens to your student, then they won't have to worry about falling behind the pace of their course. Instead, you can sign them up to work with an AP Physics C: Mechanics tutor when you reach out to us directly. This could be just what they need to unlock more of their potential in this challenging subject area.
Can AP Physics C: Mechanics tutors help my student prepare for tests?
AP Physics C: Mechanics tutoring is an excellent way for your student to get support with their test preparation process. It can be especially beneficial to your student as they get ready to take their final exam on this subject. The AP Physics C: Mechanics final exam is given over a one hour and thirty-minute testing window and features two different sections. It covers a number of important topics and skills that your student spent time learning about during the school year. For example, your student will need to have a strong understanding of topics such as kinematics, calculus, and linear momentum before they sit down to take this test. A private instructor can help them learn more about all of these topics.
The first part of the test features 35 multiple-choice questions, which will account for 50% of your student’s final score. Here, your student will need to show an ability to develop and support scientific claims with evidence and analyze data shown in a graph. They’ll also need to demonstrate their ability to determine the relationship between physical qualities and solve physical problems using mathematical relationships.
The second portion of the exam consists of three free-response questions, which will count for the remaining 50% of your student’s overall grade. On this part of the test, your student will be asked to respond to challenging mechanical physics questions in a variety of ways. For example, they may need to write out a scientific explanation for a phenomenon, which will include a claim, evidence, and reasoning. They may also be asked to show their analysis of a question through equations, diagrams, graphs, or calculations.
Clearly, there are many different skills and subject areas that your student will want to be proficient in before sitting down to take this exam. An AP Physics C: Mechanics tutor can help your student improve in all of these areas. For example, they can help your student improve their understanding of core terms by helping them create and review flashcards. They can also provide your student with a set of practice problems to work on, which allow your student to experience what their exam will be like before any mistakes they make can count against them. Throughout this process, your student can get personalized guidance and feedback that gives them the support they need to unlock more of their AP Physics C: Mechanics potential.
How does AP Physics C: Mechanics tutoring support my student’s classroom learning?
Private instruction and classroom learning complement each other well. Together, they can help your student get as much as possible out of their academic opportunities. Your student’s private instruction will be a valuable addition to their learning plan because it gives them the chance to work individually with an educator who is an expert on AP Physics C: Mechanics. This differs from the traditional classroom learning experience where students are typically instructed in a group setting. Since your student and their private educator will work together in a one-on-one environment, your student’s needs will always be their instructor’s top priority.
This intimate academic setting can lead to important benefits for your student. For example, their instructor can create a customized lesson plan for them that is specifically targeted with their growth in mind. Your student can get help with topics like rotation, oscillations, systems of particles, linear momentum, and much more. The specific material that your student’s instructor helps them with can vary based on what your student needs the most assistance with. Throughout this process, your student can move through each topic their instructor helps them with at their own pace. They can also stop to ask for additional guidance whenever they need it. This type of individualization in the learning process is key to what makes private AP Physics C: Mechanics instruction such a valuable addition to your student’s education.
Still, we understand that you may not be sure as to whether or not private instruction would fit into your student’s busy schedule. We can help you solve that issue when you contact us directly. When you do, we'll do all that we can to connect your student with an instructor who is able to meet with them at times that work for your student. This enables your student to get the AP Physics C: Mechanics support that they've been looking for without having to rearrange the other important parts of their life to get it.
When you contact us, you'll also get to choose between online or in-person instruction for your student. Each of these options can help your student improve their understanding of the most important topics in this field of study. If you choose online learning for your student, then they'll get to start meeting with their instructor on our Live Learning Platform. This platform features sophisticated academic tools that enable your student to get just as much out of online instruction as they would out of meeting with their educator in-person. For example, your student can use the platform’s virtual whiteboard to interact with their instructor and its integrated video chat to communicate with them.
Online learning can also be an asset to your student’s schedule. This is due to the fact that they won't have to deal with the hassle of commuting to and from a physical location for each session with their instructor. Instead, they’ll be free to work with them from anywhere that they have a solid internet connection. This could be at your home, at your student’s favorite branch of the local library, or anywhere else that they find convenient. This is another excellent example of how flexible private instruction can be.
