Advanced Science

Physical Science
In addition to using computer programs that help model problems, our tutors will teach your children about engineered systems, natural systems (subsystems, parts, inputs, processes and outputs), unit conversions and quantities, matter and the particle model of matter, physical changes in matter, motion and speed, forces (magnitude and direction), energy wave properties, and types of energy. We demonstrate approaches to solving problems so kids can work independently.
Life Science
Your children will learn about the process of science through scientific investigations and experiments, natural world using maps and satellite images, atom and molecular make-up of matter, cells and their role in tissues, organs and organ systems in the human body, cell contents and cycle, ecosystems, organism roles and interactions, photosynthesis, food webs, inherited vs. acquired traits, fossil record and extinction events, and human diseases.
Earth Science
Our tutors teach Your child will learn about the process of science using logic and reasoning, men and women in science history, natural world using maps and satellite images, physical properties of metals and non-metals, mixtures and pure substances, chemical changes and properties, energy waves, tectonic plates and earth layers, Minnesota’s landscape, global climate and Earth’s tilt, weather, water cycle, our solar system, and fossil fuels. We demonstrate how to approach and solve problems and recognize when to apply which formulas.
Biology
AP Biology is an introductory college-level biology course. Students cultivate their understanding of biology through inquiry-based investigations as they explore the following topics: evolution, cellular processes — energy and communication, genetics, information transfer, ecology, and interactions.
Chemistry
The AP Chemistry course provides students with a college-level foundation to support future advanced course work in chemistry. Students cultivate their understanding of chemistry through inquiry-based investigations, as they explore topics such as: atomic structure, intermolecular forces and bonding, chemical reactions, kinetics, thermodynamics, and equilibrium.
Physics
AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students cultivate their understanding of Physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore topics such as Newtonian mechanics (including rotational motion); work, energy, and power; mechanical waves and sound; and introductory, simple circuits. AP Physics 2 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students cultivate their understanding of Physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore topics such as fluid statics and dynamics; thermodynamics with kinetic theory; PV diagrams and probability; electrostatics; electrical circuits with capacitors; magnetic fields; electromagnetism; physical and geometric optics; and quantum, atomic, and nuclear physics.

Student Feedback

“Great Results”
– Abdirahman, Minneapolis Thomas can make everything seem easier. When he explains it, things just make more sense. I started getting A’s on my tests for Algebra II and Precalculus, and then he helped with Calculus the next year.
“Thorough and Effective”
– Kristen K., Wayzata Thomas worked with our son to identify the areas of the ACT Math he wanted to focus on, then developed a customized plan to improve those scores. As a result, our son achieved his target scores on his most recent test, and learned key strategies that helped him improve on all sections. He really enjoyed working with Thomas!
“Very Organized! Lots of Resources.”
– Joy, Dalbo, MN on 4/28/14 Thomas helped my teen to make great strides in Algebra, Geometry and beyond. He was great to help with real understanding and test prep for both the ACT and SAT Math. He was very patient, easy to reach, and easy to deal with. Thanks Thomas!!
“Big Improvement with Thomas’s Help”
– Andrea Z., Edina, MN on 1/23/14 Thomas was extremely good at explaining PreCalculus; He’s extremely knowledgeable, especially when it comes to Trig, everyday applications and proofs. We enjoyed working with him.
