Tutoring Help For Middle School Science
Middle school will probably be the first introduction your child has to higher science concepts. From here on out, the science classes your child will be expected to take will become increasingly more difficult with the introduction of complicated science concepts and the math equations that accompany them. It’s easy to get behind in science class if your child isn’t grasping the concepts quickly or keeping up with homework assignments, lab reports, or chapter study.
If you notice that your middle schooler is struggling with science, now is the time to get help. Huntington has highly trained tutors ready to help your child understand science and set them up for a foundation of science success throughout middle school and into high school and beyond. We offer comprehensive tutoring for each of the middle school basic science programs.

- Chemical processes and reactions
- Liquids and solids
- Structures and properties of matter
- Force, momentum, energy
Earth science is the study of Earth and its atmosphere. Knowledge of earth science helps us understand the land, water, and sky in our everyday world. Tutoring builds skills in the following concepts:
- Earth's surface
- Earth's energy
- Earthquakes and volcanoes
- Soil and rocks
- Earth's fresh water and oceans
- Earth's atmosphere, weather, and climate

Read what our many happy parents and STUDENTS are saying...
"Shawn was on the brink of failing science. This was just not his subject. Huntington developed a tutoring program for Shawn and also asked permission to speak with his science teacher about the situation and how together they could help improve his performance. Shawn improved his grade from a C to a B+, and now is on his way to honor roll! Huntington really gets results!"

How Do I Know if My Child Needs Help?
Most of the time it will be obvious when your child needs help. Often, you can see when they are struggling. You’ll see warning signs, such as low grades, poor test and quiz grades, struggles with homework, avoiding homework, changes in attitude or behavior, or becoming disorganized or quiet and withdrawn.
Your child’s teacher may also notice issues and tell you that your child is a day dreamer, a class clown, or is acting out. The teacher may be concerned about your child's ability to succeed, or that important school skills are missing.
