PRIVATE SCIENCE TUTORING
Since 2005, we’ve helped students improve their confidence and grades in all levels of science.
We’re especially proud of the fact that other educators (teachers and professors) and high profile members of the Princeton University Administration trust us with their children’s academic success and recommend our services to others.

What parents say about our Science tutors
Our team includes award-winning Princeton University undergrads and Master’s/PhD graduates who are rigorously screened and are extremely effective at communicating the material.
A “case study”:
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 some feedback we received:
“Haley, Thank you so much for your help and guidance.
I feel relieved and assured that Rohan has you to assist him with his studies.
Rohan 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.”
We receive messages like these every week.
We regularly track progress
Progress reports are shared after every session so you always know what’s going on.
A Real-Life Example:
Time Tutored: 10:00 am – 11:15 am
Next Scheduled Session: Sunday, March 25 at 3pm
Michael and I mainly focused on balancing redox equations following his quiz on this material last Thursday and in preparation for his test next week.
We began by reviewing the basics of the periodic table of elements, emphasizing the elements to the far left and far right of the table in understanding their charges in redox equations.
We then worked our way through the step-by-step process of balancing redox equations outlined in the book. This 7-step process makes it easier to understand each aspect of balancing redox equations separately rather than trying to do it all at the same time.
After we worked through this problem together, I gave Michael a problem to do on his own, explaining each step to me as he worked through it.
Although he initially tried to go back to his old approach, we were able to make progress in slowing down and focusing on each part separately after I reminded him to follow the seven steps. I believe this “slow and steady” approach will be key to Michael’s success on future tests and quizzes.
Assignments for Next Week:
The four problems in the Chapter 20 practice problem set – these will be good in preparing for his test next week, and he can check the answers in the back of the book.
I plan on reviewing these problems with Michael at the beginning of our next session

Addresses common student issues
A deep understanding of the subject matter allows us to personalize our approach.
Why is science important?
Whether you love it or hate it, science is part of the required curriculum if you want to graduate middle school or high school.
Even if you don’t like science, the skills tested (e.g. reading comprehension, organizing information, understanding graphs/tables, etc…) will come in handy in many other areas.
Why do some 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.
