Elementary Science Tutors
Our science tutors provide homework support and assistance with test preparation for elementary school students. Reading, understanding and reflecting on science related material can sometimes be challenging. Our science tutors provide guidance and strategies on how to complete various assignments and give students the confidence do them independently in the future. During the intermediate grades there is a strong focus on preparing the students to learn the basics of physics, chemistry and biology by introducing fundamental concepts and new vocabulary.
Junior High Science Tutors
Our science tutors provide support to students who are taking science 8 to 10. These courses introduce the building blocks of physics, chemistry and biology in order to prepare the student for taking upper level science courses. During the lessons the tutor focuses on one or more of the following: reviewing the material covered in the classroom, assisting with homework questions, reteaching material if required, providing practice questions and helping the student prepare for tests. It is essential that a student receives at least a 70% in science 10 before entering grade 11 physics, chemistry or biology.
High School Science Tutors
Tutors on Call provides physics, chemistry and biology tutoring for students in grade 11 and 12. Since the course moves quickly it is essential that the tutoring starts at the beginning of the course to ensure the student does not fall behind and become overwhelmed. The second and third most popular tutoring programs with Tutors on Call is physics and chemistry. Grade 10 science only provides a foundation. Grade 11 science courses are far more specific so a lot of students struggle with its material. It is our experience that if a student received less than 70% in science 10 they will struggle in physics 11 and chemistry 11.
University & College Science Tutors
Tutors on Call also offers physics, chemistry and biology tutoring services to first and second year college and university level students. Due to the intensity of the course it is strongly recommended that the tutoring starts at the beginning of the term to ensure the student does not fall behind and become overwhelmed. Usually these programs focus on reviewing the course material, assisting with homework assignments and helping the student review for upcoming tests. Often the lessons take place at the school campus or the student’s home.
