Chemistry is usually the first math based science students experience and can be one of the most challenging courses in high school. Not only is the material is challenging, the teachers are burdened with teaching both difficult science and fundamental math for students who aren't already comfortable with it. Even if your student is mathematically proficient, the teacher will still be slowed by the median students' math skills when teaching this course. This makes it super easy for your student’s normal efforts to render less effective.

For those students who showed proficiency in their first Chemistry course, most schools offer an AP Chemistry course the following year. AP Chemistry relies heavily on proficient math skills, but is considered a must for students interested in majoring in STEM whether your concentration will be physical, chemical, biological, or mathematical.

As with all AP courses, if your student scores a 4 or 5 on the AP exam in May, (some) colleges will accept their test grade as college credit in lieu of taking the course again as an undergraduate. This enables your student to take more advanced courses, fewer courses, or possibly graduate earlier.

Physics is even more math intensive than Chemistry, and is usually taken after a student completes their first year of Chemistry. It is one of my favorite subjects to tutor because students finally start to learn about a science they can SEE. Depending on the school the student attends, the teacher can have a large degree of control over the range of the curriculum, sometimes resulting in large variation between courses.

For those students who showed proficiency in their first Physics course, most schools offer an AP Physics B or an AP Physics C course. AP Physics B covers more information such as fluids and thermodynamics which AP Physics C doesn't touch upon, and in exchange, none of the math in the course is Calculus based. Alternatively, AP Physics C focuses in more on the core topics while implementing Calculus to do it.

Daniel Bush tutored me in math throughout high school, increasing my C's to A+s in the following courses: Geometry, Algebra II, Precalculus, and Calculus. My SAT score went from a 1680/2400 to a 2160/2400 after working with him, and was accepted to schools I wouldn’t have been accepted to otherwise. Dan’s services are essentially an investment with a high return. Many individuals are capable of achieving high SAT scores, but it takes a special teacher to draw out a student’s potential. What sets Daniel apart is that he has an innate ability to teach, identify his student’s weaknesses, and then create a unique action plan that produces immediate results. Additionally, Dan is a great motivator and is very personable to work with. He instills mental discipline, builds confidence and pushes every student he works with to reach for the stars. I liked that Dan was always well prepared for our sessions. When I felt like quitting Dan would often remind me I had too much potential to be a B student. If you have any further questions about his services or my experiences working with him do not hesitate to contact me at robert.kudart(at)gmail.com.
