Honors Science is comparable to a general science classes, except it moves faster to help students prepare for more advanced material later in their high school careers. The topics covered range by grade level and school, so there is no such thing as a set "Honors Science curriculum." Varsity Tutors can find you or your child a knowledgeable Honors Science tutor who can help you pursue your academic goals.
Here are some of the concepts that are commonly discussed during Honors Science tutoring sessions:
- Application of the Scientific Method to a variety of problems
- Evidence for Evolution
- The underlying physics of Motion, Energy, and Waves
- Ecosystems and how Natural Selection Affects an Organism's Ability to Reproduce
- Geology, including the layers of the Earth's crust and the Rock Cycle
- Basic Genetics
- Earth Science
Honors Science tutoring allows students to learn at their own pace. If your child has a strong knowledge of ecosystems, their study sessions can be made more efficient by concentrating elsewhere. In addition, working in a one-on-one learning environment ensures a timely response to any questions asked, enabling a student to seek help before they fall too far behind their peers. If a student has a hard time maintaining their concentration, an Honors Science tutor may try to make learning more fun. TV programs such as MythBusters, Bill Nye the Science Guy, and NOVA do a fantastic job of illustrating several scientific concepts. Alternatively, a tutor may guide their pupil through at-home experiments to bring the concepts in their textbooks to life. Even a simple mnemonic device may help a student make a major breakthrough.
