How Upper Level Science Support Works
The upper-level sciences are an interesting combination of reading and math — two of Sylvan’s strengths. Yet, no matter how strong your teen’s reading skills are, navigating a science textbook is much different than reading literature!
It’s normal for teens to need help from time to time to really understand new concepts.
Our science tutors in Downey will help your teen make sense of his or her science assignments and get ready for big tests. We’re experts in breaking down the terminology, concepts and mathematics within science, so your son or daughter truly understands it.
Biology is the study of the science of life — from plants to animals. Whether your teen is learning about molecules or the biosphere, we’re here to bring all the concepts together.
Our biology tutors are knowledgeable about topics such as molecules, photosynthesis, ecology and more.
Chemistry is the study of matter, energy and the interactions between them. Your son or daughter is likely getting a focused introduction to basic chemical principles and problem solving techniques. We love helping teens understand how these concepts and skills are relevant for day-to-day life!
Our chemistry tutors are knowledgeable about topics such as the periodic table, atomic structure, states of matter, and more.
Physics is the science that explores the physical laws of the universe. Our physics tutors are here to help your son or daughter learn basic physics principles and develop problem solving skills.
Our physics tutors are knowledgeable about topics such as mechanics, fluids, heat, sound and more.
