SCIENCE TUTORING FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL & HIGH SCHOOL
It's no secret that science can be a particularly tricky subject for students of all ages. A field that covers a vast array of subject matter, the study of science involves a great deal of memorization, analysis, comprehension, and creative thinking. Despite its challenging nature, science is undoubtedly an integral part of learning, helping students of all ages understand their past, present, and future.
Throughout middle school and high school, students will be introduced to a variety of science courses including earth science, biology, chemistry, anatomy & physiology, physics, and more. Keeping up with all this information can be daunting, however the assistance of an experienced science tutor can help transform the subject into one that is approachable and fun. At Huntington Learning Center, we are committed to providing the support every student needs, in order to help them succeed in their science classes.
Why Science Tutoring at Huntington?
Because science involves such a diverse set of concepts, the study habits that work for a student in one field may not be applicable to another. For example, the way a student learns and understands anatomy is unlikely to transfer to the way he or she learns and understands chemistry. For this reason, science can be incredibly challenging and, at times, frustrating for students to grasp. If the right study skills are not set in place early in the school year, your child's grades might suffer, impacting his or her overall grade point average. Not only is a lack of academic success harmful to grades, it can also diminish a student’s confidence in their abilities.
Science tutoring programs are an incredibly useful resource to help students keep up with science tests, quizzes, homework assignments, and problem sets. Within an individual classroom, it is unlikely that a single teacher can cater to the unique learning style and pace of each student. Therefore, science tutoring should be used as a method to fill in any gaps in scientific knowledge and understanding.
During the middle school years, students receive their first introduction to the more complicated science concepts and math equations that they will be expected to fully comprehend as they advance through school. Because scientific theories and equations typically build upon one another, it is important at this stage that your child has a strong foundation of knowledge from which to begin. Without this base, students often find themselves slipping behind. With a science tutor, homework assignments, lab reports, and chapter study become less intimidating.
Science tutoring programs for middle school students address your child's weaknesses when it comes to learning science, and set in place the tools he or she will need to perform at a high level. It is essential during middle school that students are confident in their ability to learn, and a science tutor is capable of building this self-assurance.
Upon entering high school, students are expected to understand some of the most complex scientific concepts, not to mention the vocabulary and equations that go along with them. Grasping such intense lesson plans can be particularly difficult during these years when teens also have to juggle extracurricular activities, college essays, and social obligations. They may feel helpless when they don’t immediately understand a science lesson being taught, and, without proper guidance, can quickly fall behind.
Science tutoring programs for high school students are invaluable to giving teens an edge in school. Working with a science tutor will help your child learn and internalize methods to approaching science lessons, and allow for a deeper recognition and understanding of scientific theories. Whether your child has enrolled in AP courses or basic introductory classes, the benefits of science tutoring are clear.
The Huntington Science Tutoring
To make science subject tutoring as impactful as possible for a student, we ask parents and students to provide information and materials about their current class. Our science tutor will then assess the student’s level of understanding using previous assignments, tests, and quizzes. Our tutors typically begin with a student's current homework or upcoming test or quiz. Then, they can back track if the tutor identifies a particular area of weakness. All of this hard work will lead to a boost in your child’s grades and, just as important, a boost in his or her confidence.
We are proud to offer science tutoring centers in hundreds of locations across the United States, ensuring that all students have access to top quality science tutors excited to help them reach their goals.

"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!"
