Benefits of Group Lessons

  • Live instruction with an exceptional tutor who can answer questions and clear up any confusion

  • Organized lessons to ensure mastery of all topics for AP® Physics 1

  • Access to hundreds of practice problems and detailed video solutions

  • Nearly all the benefits of a private tutor at a lower cost

How It Works

I host a 1-hour weekly Zoom call at a set time each week. When you sign your student up for a class time, they will get access to the Zoom link. 
 

Each week there are set topics that we will go over. The lesson will be split into a short mini lesson (15-20 minutes) followed by going over different examples. The students will always have a chance to ask questions to clarify any points of confusion, or even ask about similar problems they're facing from their classroom.

 

The goal is for them develop the core conceptual understanding and necessary problem solving skills for the AP Physics 1 exam.

Subjects

Currently, I only offer group classes for the following subjects:

  • AP® Physics 1

These courses have standardized curriculum from the College Board, so it's easier for students to all be covering the same major topics on the exam.

Class Requests

Don't see a class or time slot that works for you? No problem. I create classes as long as I can get a minimum of 4 students. So if you have at least 3 other friends or families who would like a class together, then email me and I'd be happy to set that up for you.

Payment

The cost for the class is $139 per month (roughly $37 per week)..

Payment is handled via Stripe, which accepts Visa or Mastercard credit cards. The first invoice will need to be paid before getting the link to the Zoom sessions. Subsequent sessions will charge the credit card on file automatically at the beginning of the month.

Schedule

Group classes begin the week of August 24-28 and finish up the week before AP exams.

AP® Physics 1: Thursday 2:00pm PT / 5:00pm ET

                           

Frequently asked questions

How large are the group sizes?


The maximum group size is 10. If the class is full, then I will open up additional times/classes.




What happens if the student misses a class?


I record all lessons and make it available for all students to access.

To ensure privacy, I only record my own video/audio and screen. None of the other student's audio will be recorded.




How are breaks handled (Thanksgiving, Spring Break, Christmas, etc)?


There will not be any lessons during the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's. There won't be a pause for Spring Break because different schools take breaks at different times. If a student misses a lesson during their breaks, they can rewatch the recorded lessons.

There will not be a reduction in monthly fees for holidays. Some months will have 5 lessons, some may have 3 or 4. The payment fee is still monthly.




Can I take a pause or withdraw from the group lessons?


If you want to withdraw from lessons, please contact me and let me know. If you want to pause lessons, you can. However, I cannot guarantee there will be a spot available for your student if you want to resume lessons. Also, recorded lessons that occur during the pause will not be available for viewing.




How do you get students to engage?


There's multiple ways for students to engage on Zoom.

1) They can interrupt me anytime if they have a question. I don't mute any students unless they're having technical issues, or their background audio is becoming disruptive to the class.
2) It can be intimidating to interrupt a lesson. Another option they can do is "raise hand". Zoom has a button that allows a participant to raise their hand, and it will notify me that someone has a question. I can then call on that person and give them a chance to speak.

3) Type in a question. If a student prefers to type out the question, they can send it in chat. Zoom has the ability to send a chat to everyone in the group, or the student can message me directly.
