 ## High School ### Biology

Biology is the complex study of all life. From the tiniest organisms to the largest mammals, this natural science explores the similarities and differences of all living beings. Students learn the parts and functions of the cell, how genes determine physical and chemical characteristics, and why evolution moves existence forward. They begin to see how certain traits help or hurt the survival of a species and get a better sense of what a creature’s life cycle really entails. Tucson tutors are here to help biology students get more from every class. ### Algebra 1

After your student has conquered the world of Pre-Algebra, they’re ready to take the next step to Algebra 1. This course will expand on the skills they’ve already learned, so they can evaluate different kinds of equations and develop deeper problem-solving skills  that can be applied to a wide variety of topics. From inequalities to polynomials, Algebra 1 introduces complex expressions that will require a student to work with both letters and numbers to arrive at the correct answer. ### Chemistry

Covalent bonds, Avogadro’s number, and polyatomic ions are just the beginning of the world of chemistry. This exciting subject studies actions and reactions, helping students understand both the organic and the inorganic material around them. ### Algebra 2

Inching your way up the ladder in algebra means tackling complex numbers, logarithms, and polynomials. As the equations advance, it’s all too easy to become lost in a world of base factors and imaginary numbers. Untangling the mess to find a clear path forward  may mean getting a little extra help along the way. ### Physics & AP Physics

The study of physics examines the delicate forces behind movement. The subject applies different equations to determine how an object will move, how much energy it will use, and how long it will stay in motion. It’s a fundamental discipline used to better understand everything from atoms to planets. ### Geometry

Geometry is a shift for many students, taking them from a world of numbers and equal signs to a land where pictures rule their worksheets and textbooks. Instead of dividing numbers and isolating coefficients, students are expected to calculate angles, memorize formulas, and apply various theorems to different problems. ### Pre-calculus

As the name would suggest, pre-calculus is a full year of study devoted to preparing students to take calculus. It will cover a wide range of topics, including radians, angles, matrices, and analysis. Pre-calc draws on a number of previous concepts covered in past subjects, such as trigonometry, geometry, and algebra 2. However, the sheer amount of material may make students feel as though they’ve been thrown into the deep end. ### Calculus

Students who reach calculus have already demonstrated a proficiency in math, having taken and passed everything from geometry to pre-calculus. But even those who have excelled in the past might find that calculus has taken the basic concepts they’ve already learned into uncharted territory.
