Confidently tutoring students in:
- Biology / AP Biology
- Physics / AP Physics
- Chemistry / AP Chemistry
– Biology & AP Biology
– Physics & AP Physics
– Chemistry & AP Chemistry
While many students are interested in science classes, some experience difficulties in these classes as they move into middle school & high school. These grades tend to have more difficult classes, especially in high school. This is particularly true for students that decide to take AP science classes to get college credit.
A low grade or two can seriously erode a student’s confidence. For students who may have aspirations of pursuing science careers, this can be devastating.
The Texas Tutor Team utilizes 1 to 1 tutoring in-home or virtually to help students master their science classes. Providing the best science tutoring starts with employing experienced tutors. We make sure they are proficient in the science subjects they will be tutoring before assigning them to a student.
Additionally, all of our tutors are thoughtfully screened and trained to be patient with each student, willing to tutor in a way that is best for the student. Our goal is to not only help our students master their science materials, but also to build confidence to help them succeed in the classroom and in life.

Biology & AP Biology
Biology, at its core, is about the building blocks of life and our environment. Students study the interactions among organisms and their biophysical environments.
Course work seeks to educate students on cell biology, the cellular process as they relate to the building blocks of life.
Furthermore, the physical human being, its structure, genetics, and heredity are important topics that are taught.
As students move on from the core classwork and seek to take AP Biology classes advanced topics will be covered including:
- Chemistry of Life – Molecules like lipids and proteins are studied
- Cell Function & Structure – What makes cells up?
- Cellular Energetics – How cellular processes work
- Heredity – Chromosomal inheritance and genetic diversity
- Natural Selection – Darwin’s theory and the concept of evolution
- Ecology – How organisms interact within ecosystems.
These subjects can be tough and many aspects of biology and what makes our living world work are covered. Our expert biology tutors have tools and skills to make these topics easier to digest and comprehend.
Physics & AP Physics
More than just learning about Newton and how an apple hit him on the head, the study of physics is a look at the physical world and the laws that govern it, starting with motion.
Topics covered then advance through:
To be successful in these subjects, a solid understanding of algebra is essential. If your student is struggling with math, we can help. Setup a free math assessment and consultation today.
As students move on from the core classwork and seek to take AP Physics classes advanced topics will be covered including:
- Kinematics – Motion Studies
- Dynamics – Force interaction between objects
- Gravity & Circular Motion
- Energy – The relationship between Energy and Power
- Electric Charge & Force
These subjects can be tough and many aspects of AP Physics and laws of our living world are covered. Our expert physics tutors have tools and skills to make these topics easier to digest and comprehend.
Chemistry & AP Chemistry
Chemistry at its core is the study of matter and energy. Similar to physics, but focusing on substances and how they interact with other substances and matter.
Topics covered in basic Chemistry:
- The Scientific Method
- Stoichiometry – Relating to chemical equations and proportions in chemical reactions
- States of Matter
- Chemical Reactions
- Gases and Bases
To be successful in these subjects, a solid foundation in math is essential. If your student is struggling with math, we can help. Setup a free math assessment and consultation today.
As students move on from the core classwork and seek to take AP Chemistry classes advanced topics will be covered including:
- Atomic Structure and Properties
- Molecular and Ionic Compounds
- Chemical Reactions
- Acids and Bases
These subjects can be tough and many aspects of AP Chemistry are quite advanced, that is why your student can earn college credit for some of these courses. Our expert chemistry tutors have tools and skills to make these topics easier to digest and comprehend.
