Private Science Tutoring
Since 2005, we have helped students of all ages improve their confidence and grades in science, including biology, chemistry, computer science, physics, and more. Our clients have even included other professionals in the field of education - teachers, Ivy League professors, and members of the Princeton University administration. Whether your child is struggling or simply looking for enrichment tutoring, our exceptional private science tutors will create a customized approach tailored specifically for your needs. After each session, you’ll receive a detailed progress report to track your child’s improvement (view a real recap from one of our chemistry tutoring sessions).
What Parents Say about Our Science Tutors
We were contacted by the parents of a ninth grader at Montgomery High School, who needed help in chemistry and algebra. The student was bright, but struggling to apply himself.
We matched the student with Haley, a public policy major at Princeton University with significant tutoring experience. During her gap year, she was an education intern at an organic farm and learning center in rural Massachusetts, spent five months in Ecuador as the lead teacher in a market outreach nursery school program, and worked as a program assistant and resident advisor at a summer program. Moreover, in 2011 she received the prestigious Truman Award, given to just 60 students among 602 candidates nationwide for their commitment to public service.
Here’s what the parents had to say:
“Haley, Thank you so much for your help and guidance. I feel relieved and assured that R has you to assist him with his studies. R is easily distracted and somewhat impatient to finish his work, and as a result doesn’t pay enough attention to the structure, presentation, and accuracy of his work. However, with your help we’ve seen a lot of improvement in him and his general effort to apply himself more. He is smart and bright, he just needs expert guidance and you’re doing a great job with that.”
“Haley is just such a wonderful teacher it makes me wish I had her to teach me when I was growing up!”

We chose to tutor because it was extremely rewarding and something we truly enjoyed.
Princeton Tutoring was born out of the early successes of our former clients and our desire to provide high-quality tutoring to other families. We understand better than most what parents are looking for, what children need, and which qualities make the best tutors.
Thank you for considering us. We look forward to speaking with you and working with your child to help fulfill his or her academic potential.
Why Do Students Struggle with Science?
We’ve helped both middle and high school students in all of the science subjects, including biology, chemistry, physics, and more. There tend to be a few common themes when students struggle in these subjects. One is that teachers cover a large amount of material in a short amount of time, so it is hard to keep up. This issue can also relate to how strong a student’s reading comprehension skills are. Another issue is that, especially in more advanced classes, teachers expect students to learn a lot of the material on their own time. Still another we see is that some of the sciences also require a certain level of math, which students may not have a good foundation in.
Our science tutors are experts in the subject matter and can help your child regain their confidence in science.
