Private Tutoring

  • flexible 9:00am-8:00pm    Package:

    Math and Physics: AP Calculus AB and BC, Physics, AP Physics by Greenwood

    Once you order the private tutoring, the teacher will directly contact you to make the tutoring schedule, which is flexible based on your personal needs.

    The tutoring hours you ordered can be used within a few years, with no expiration. The unused tutoring hours can also be converted to credit to register for group classes or buy books.

    This is a new class to teach AP Physics 1 in the Fall term. Students who finish AP Physics 1 may start AP Physics 2 in Winter/Spring term.

    Prerequisite: Algebra I/Basic Trigonometry or Algebra II 

    This is a one-year curriculum and will be finished in Fall and Winter/Spring Terms, from Sep to Jun, about 34 weeks.

    This class is designed to support 8th/9th grade to learn to advance or support their school learning by making up gaps. It seeks to broaden students' horizons on a wide range of physics topics. Physics relies heavily on theories and experimentations that are highly quantitative to support conclusions.

    Accordingly, foundational knowledge of algebra is required to succeed in this course. For example, students will be required to find the slope and area under graphs. In addition to that, students should have a good handle on basic trigonometrical functions. In this course, students will learn about Mechanics, States of Matter, Waves and light, Electricity and magnetism and Modern physics.  Furthermore, students will be expected to construct and judge the validity of a logical argument, demonstrate effective oral and listening skills, use technology in a responsible manner.

    Textbook:
    Physics: Principles with Applications by Giancoli (AP Physics 1+2, Algebra based)

    Physics: Principles with Applications (7th Edition) - Standalone book 

    Note: The PDF file of the textbook will be loaded to the class page before the term starts.

    This is a new course to teach AP Physics Mechanics, with a focus to prepare for F=MA exam by practice on F=MA exam problems. The Course is designed to finish in one school year from Sep to May.

    Prerequisite: 
    1. Calculus (Easy version, could parallel taking it at Sunshine, text 503-915-2956 for detail)
    2. Have finished the Copceptual Physics Mechanics units
    3. Be motivated to work on F=MA problems.

    Textbooks:
    1. Customized teaching material in class
    2. 5th edition of Halliday, Resnick, and Krane’s Physics Volume 1
    3. Morin’s Problems and Solutions in Introductory Mechanics
    4. Past years of F=MA exams

    Note: The PDF file of the textbook will be loaded to the class page before the term starts.

    Reference Information:

    Our Teaching Philosophy: "Teaching Physics in the right way is hard, and finding the right teachers is even harder. Teaching formulas is very easy, but that does not help in understanding the concepts, and good physics is all about concepts. F=ma focuses a lot on conceptual depth."  

    The pathway to International Physics Olympiad:
    F=MA -> USA Physics Olympiad -> Physics Team -> IPhO

    Our Course Sequence to qualify for USA Physics Olympiad:
    1. PreAlgebra -> Introduction to Physics;
    2. Algebra1 -> Conceptual Physics, at least the mechanics units
    3. Algebra 1 plus Basic Trigonometry or Algebra2 -> AP Physics 1+2 plus F=MA practice;
    4. Calculus (Easy version is ok)-> AP Physics C Mechanics plus more F=MA Practice
