How can a Science tutor help you?

Science can be a very fun subject for students. The sciences may help them to explore the world around them in an exciting and useful way. For some students, this is exciting, but for others, it can be very challenging to understand all of the concepts in the subject. Introductory science courses introduce students to how to conduct effective experiments that can be helpful down the road. For students struggling through their science homework, working with a tutor may be a good solution. The educational directors at Varsity Tutors can help you search for a science tutor in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who can work with your student through their science coursework.

Science covers many fields like biology, geology, and astrology. The basics of all of these fields stem from the first science courses that your student takes. If basic concepts, such as the scientific process, are not understood during these courses, then it can be hard for a student to move forward. A Philadelphia science tutor can help your student study these concepts. Every student learns information in their own unique way. For some, simply reading a textbook is enough, but others may require a verbal description and several follow-up questions to wrap their minds around a concept. There is no wrong way of learning, and a tutor can adapt to the varying needs of your student easily because they have the chance to get to know them well during their face-to-face sessions.

Science Tutoring review by Melissa in Philadelphia, PA
The time was split between reviewing with the student for her biology final and the student with a lab project that she needed to finish. With The other student, we covered basic concepts in biology/chemistry such as acids and bases, functional groups, basics of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and lipids, organelles in the cell and their function, and cellular respiration. The other student asked a few questions related to a lab that she was working on where they transformed bacteria with a plasmid expressing GFP.

Science Tutoring review by Austin in Philadelphia, PA
The student and I discussed pH, hydrogen ion concentration, acidity, and basicity in the context of his classwork and homework. Additionally, we reviewed the concepts of water and geometric measurements from our previous biology and geometry session last week. He has an exam in biology on Friday, so we also spoke about ways to study and prepare for the exam.

Science Tutoring review by Peter in Philadelphia, PA
Today we went over the student's biology problem set. The problem set dealt with the relationship between enzyme velocity, enzyme concentration, and substrate concentration. There were questions about photosynthesis and cellular respiration and there were other protein related questions. After the problem set, we worked on calculus. For calculus, we looked at different functions and determined what their domains and ranges were. The student is very inquisitive and has a lot of good questions.

Science Tutoring review by Trisha in Philadelphia, PA
Today we went over the corrections for the student' biology test. I spent this lesson going over monomers and polymers for the 4 categories of molecules. I explained in detail what each molecule looked like, it's function, etc. on a white board, so it was much more interactive. I think this teaching style is great for the student in biology, and I might think about incorporating it for algebra as well. He seemed to grasp the information fairly well in a short period of time.
