Contact Us#### AP Physics 1 & 2 Test Preparation

AP Physics 1 & AP Physics 2 are college-level courses providing an introduction to the principles of Physics, providing a foundation in Physics for work in the Life Sciences, Pre-medicine, and other Applied Sciences. We emphasize intuitive understanding of the principles of Physics, experimental investigation, and creativity. We use open-ended questions to assess students’ ability to explain their understanding of concepts.

We emphasize using mathematical reasoning to illuminate a physical situation, interpreting physical information, describing and explaining the sequence of steps in the analysis, etc. Our course includes tips on laboratory-related questions for designing experiments, analyzing data, displaying data in the graphical or tabular form, analyzing errors, communicating results, and drawing inferences and conclusions from experimental data.

Students with concerns about success on the AP Physics Tests can benefit from our online tutoring program. The tutors at YG provide effective help for both the AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2 Tests. This program identifies specific areas that are a matter of concern and works on those to improve test scores.

#### AP Physics C Mechanics Tutoring

AP Physics C Mechanics is a capstone course in Physics for those students planning on majoring in Physical Sciences or pursuing a career in Engineering or Architecture.This rigorous course is a deep and intense discovery of Calculus-based Newtonian Mechanics as described in the AP Calculus BC course. AP Physics C Mechanics tutors are available for your tutoring needs.

Students will have to investigate topics in Kinematics, which includes Vectors, Vector Algebra, Coordinate Systems, Displacement, Velocity and Acceleration, Motion in one dimension and two dimensions including Projectile Motion; Newton’s Laws of Motion, which include Static Equilibrium, Dynamics of a Single Particle and Systems of two or more Objects; Work Energy and Power, which includes the Work Energy Theorem, Forces and Potential Energy, and Conservation of Energy; System of Particles and Linear Momentum, which includes Center of Mass, Impulse and Momentum, Collisions and Conservation of Linear Momentum; Circular Motion and Rotation which includes Uniform Circular Motion, Torque and Rotational Statics, and Rotational Kinematics and Dynamics; Angular Momentum and Conservation; Oscillations and Gravitation which includes Simple Harmonic Motion, Mass on Spring, Newton’s Law of Gravity, and Orbits of Planets and Satellites.

YG tutors help our students to build up a deep understanding of the core concepts in AP Physics C Mechanics and the Laws of Physics through the application of accurate mathematical techniques. Our highly competent online tutors assist the students in solving complex Physics problems using both Differential and Integral Calculus. Our tutors aim at developing a detailed analytical approach in our students, which facilitates recognition of mathematical patterns and the application of this understanding in solving problems that require mathematical rigor.

#### AP Physics C Electricity Tutoring

The world of Electricity and Magnetism is accessible only through the concepts of Physics using the tools of Math and Calculus. Physics 1 and 2 are adequate choices for most students who plan to pursue studies in Life Sciences, Pre-Medicine, and some Applied Sciences, as well as other fields not directly related to Science. However, if you are planning to pursue a career in areas such as Physical Sciences, Engineering, Math, or Computational Sciences, the AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism course will put you on the pathway towards accomplishment. Due to the rigor and pace of the content, this course is intended to challenge extremely motivated students who have a strong curiosity about Physics.

It is expected that students will have a command of mathematical skills for basic Differential and Integral Calculus, as these concepts are used throughout the course. This course covers Electrostatics, which includes Charge and Coulomb’s Law, Electric Field and Electric Potential, Gauss’ Law and Fields & Potentials of other Charge Distributions; Conductors, Capacitors & Dielectrics which includes Electrostatics with Conductors, Capacitance and Parallel Plate; Electric Circuits which includes Current, Resistance & Power, Steady State Direct Current Circuits with Battery & Resistors, Capacitors in Circuits and Transients in RC Circuits; Magnetic Fields which includes Force on a Moving Charge, Force on Current carrying Conductors, Fields of long Current-carrying Wires, Biot Savart law and Ampere’s law; and Electromagnetism, which includes Electromagnetic Induction, Faraday’s Law, Lenz’s Law, Inductance, LC & LR circuits, and Maxwell’s Equations.

The proficient online tutors of YG will engage our students in the analysis of physical situations and problems, interpreting them both mathematically and verbally. Our specialist online tutors of AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism encourage positive collaborative learning, which involves constructive discussion of problem sets and concept questions. This approach enables our students to visualize an equation for a problem, to gain valuable problem-solving skills through the process of analyzing data, and to solve problems with a high degree of complexity, learning to associate given information with a corresponding Physics principle.

#### AP Statistics Test Preparation

Statistics has the power to improve decision-making accuracy, to test new ideas, and to form the mathematical basis for quality control. It is an analytical tool used in Education, the Social Sciences, and Business Administration, and is often a required subject for many College Majors.

AP Statistics introduces students to the concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. We expose our students to four broad conceptual themes, helping them to master the concepts and techniques of Statistics and equipping them to communicate methods, results, and interpretations using the vocabulary of Statistics.

We encourage our students to familiarize themselves with the form and notation of formulas. We expose them to multiple-choice questions, open-ended free-response questions, and investigative tasks involving more extended reasoning.

Any student with concerns about the information and skills needed for success on the AP Statistics Test can benefit from our online tutoring program. The tutors at YG provide effective help for learning this branch of Applied Mathematics. This program identifies specific areas that are a matter of concern and works on those so that test scores will rise.
