Description

This is an optional class accompanying the general Chemistry course. This highly interactive class allows students to ask questions and strengthen their understanding of content as presented in the TPS general Chemistry course. The class time is used to review and reteach important concepts through recitation, repetition and guided practice. Content objectives, homework, labs, and tests are the main topics of discussion. The class also enhances study skills, nurtures critical thinking, and affords much practice in problem solving. Each session provides opportunity to create a study guide for upcoming Chemistry assignments and tests.

“This course may have been the only reason I made it through my chemistry class. Most subjects come easily to me, chemistry being the exception. This class helped me immeasurably with understanding concepts, practicing problems, and preparing for tests and quizzes. I would strongly suggest taking this course alongside TPS Chemistry.”

“This course is super helpful for those taking chemistry. We always went over more problems and slides from class, and the teacher always helped us prepare for tests. I did not start the semester taking this class, and I found that I was struggling with chemistry because of that. I quickly joined it, and it has really helped my knowledge and understanding. For anyone thinking about taking chemistry, I really recommend taking this as well.”

“This course helps to clear up anything that was taught in class and adds extra information. While it was very informative, it was also very relaxed. I 100% recommend this course to anyone taking Chemistry. This will make the whole experience much more enjoyable, and you will master the concepts much more thoroughly than if you had just taken Chemistry on its own. The teacher is the most encouraging, and will meet you wherever you are and find fun and engaging ways to teach you the concepts.”

“I would recommend this class to anyone who is planning on taking chemistry. It is a really great way to get the most out of your chemistry class and do well in it, and it never hurts to get more practice in. I had a lot of fun and the teacher did a very good job. I don’t think I would have done as well in chemistry if I hadn’t taken this class.”
