About the AP Exams

The Advanced Placement (AP) exams are a set of standardized tests given at the end of each school year that measure knowledge and skills in a specific area.  High scores on AP exams often allow students to receive college credit for their high school AP courses. 

How We Can Help

For AP Exam Prep sessions, our tutors will come to your house or any other convenient location.  Students will work with a tutor who has completed the college-level course at a top university.  In general, we recommend weekly 1-hour sessions for 3-4 weeks leading up to the AP Exams.  Outside of sessions, students can expect 1-2 hours of homework per week.  

We help students prepare for the following AP Exams:


AP Biology

AP Chemistry

AP Physics


Calculus AB

Calculus BC


AP English Language

AP English Literature 

Social Sciences

AP Macroeconomics

AP Microeconomics
