Chemistry SAT Subject Test Tutoring

The Chemistry Subject Test covers a wide range of material that includes and may go beyond the content covered in a typical one-year high school chemistry course.

Our Chemistry Subject Test Tutoring Program

Our Chemistry Subject Test program is educational and rigorous. We develop individualized programs based on each student's familiarity with the core concepts in chemistry and ability to apply this knowledge. Because the subject of chemistry is so broad, we have found that not all topics on the exam are covered in a student's school curriculum.

In addition to reviewing familiar concepts and teaching new content, tutors help students develop analytical skills in interpreting figures and strengthen relevant reasoning skills so that students can interpret indirect questions on the test. Students are given homework, quizzes, and timed, full-length practice tests to reinforce concepts and practice problem-solving skills.
