You likely landed on our website because your child is struggling with physics and you're considering a private physics tutor. If only we all had the abilities of Einstein!
Through our years of working with students in physics we've learned that the problem is often in one of two areas. First, since so much of high school physics is mathematical, your child may need support with some of the underlying math skills on which physics is based. Alternately, we find that students sometimes find it challenging to grasp the highly conceptual ideas and theories inherent to the study of physics.
Whichever the case, a private physics tutor can be the difference between a good grade and a great one. Take, for instance, the common situation in which a student is too shy or embarrassed to admit that he or she didn't understand a point the teacher made. One of the primary responsibilities of our physics tutors is to slow things down for your child and ensure that he or she fully understands a concept before moving on.
Whether they spend lessons reviewing difficult ideas, practicing and drilling on problems, or preparing for upcoming quizzes and tests, the primary goal of StudyPoint physics tutoring is to ensure that your child understands the material and earns a good grade. Achieving this goal often requires as little as one 90-minute session a week.
We are very good at what we do, and we would love to help your child. If you are interested in learning more about our services, the first step is to continue browsing our website. A great place to start is the page below, which provides details on our personalized approach to physics tutoring.
CEO & Co-Founder
In class the teacher needs to keep moving whether your child understands the concept or not. Your physics tutor will work at your child's pace and will review material until it's clear that he or she has mastered the concept.
Our focus is your child's schoolwork, and a key responsibility of our tutors is to help your child prepare for and succeed on important tests and quizzes. This involves reviewing homework, discussing concepts, and completing practice problems.
Our goal is to help your child earn a stronger grade in physics class, but equally important, our physics tutoring will help your child take ownership of his or her learning and become a more successful, independent physics student.
Our experienced physics tutors have degrees (and often advanced degrees) from some of the country’s best colleges and universities.
They’re experienced, passionate teachers, and they know how to engage students and break down difficult concepts.
Being smart isn't enough—our tutors are able to listen well and communicate clearly, and they adapt their approach to fit your child.
To be effective, an educational program has to work with your family's schedule. We make life easier by bringing the tutoring to you through two convenient options:
Our flagship program, which we launched in the late 1990's, our in-home tutoring option provides you with the unparalleled convenience and personalized attention of a private physics tutor who will work with your child right at your kitchen table. All lessons are one-to-one, and your instructor will ensure that each session is highly focused on your child’s unique needs.
Instead of meeting at the kitchen table your child and the tutor meet in a custom online learning environment. This innovative tool enables them to talk through strategies and complete practice problems, just as they would on a workbook at your kitchen table. Online physics tutoring replicates the in-person tutoring dynamic, and it’s remarkably effective.
Students spend 50% of their waking hours at school or doing homework and something that occupies such a large amount of time inevitably plays a big role in their happiness. School is tough—there are social, emotional, and academic challenges.
Ultimately, the end goal of a StudyPoint physics tutoring program is improved performance in school, and that improvement is easily measurable—an A on quiz, an outstanding test, or a report card worthy of the refrigerator door. We believe the best measure of your child’s understanding and progress is his or her physics grade, and that is how we measure our success.
Yet there is an added benefit—something that is difficult to measure but easy to recognize. It is the sense of accomplishment that comes from working to improve something and seeing positive results. Few smiles are as big as the ones that accompany a strong report card.
Our greatest reward is the positive feedback we get from parents who report their children are now confident and happy in school as a result of our physics tutoring.
"We were extremely pleased - with the communication, the flexibility, and really working with us to get results in a tight time period."
"I just wanted to share the happy news with you. [Our daughter] got a 30 on her ACT. We could all not be any happier. I knew from the minute she started working with you she was going to improve. Whatever you did was magic and just what she needed."
"I can't say enough about the impressive results our son achieved in raising his ACT scores as a result of working with StudyPoint. The Program Manager and our tutor were both highly professional and genuinely interested in our son's success throughout the process."
"Our tutor was wonderful. He was very flexible in scheduling, he was calm and encouraging to our son. And, he really had great advice on the whole process. He is a credit to your organization."
