BASIRI Tutoring offers science tutoring (chemistry, physics and biology) to grades K-12 in Vancouver, North Vancouver and West Vancouver.
Science offers students the ability to access a wealth of information and knowledge to explain how and why things work the way they do. Many students find science inspiring and interesting, and the study of science offers a sense of intrigue and curiosity. However, when students begin to fall behind or struggle in their science courses, they may lose motivation and interest in the subject. After working with BASIRI Tutoring, students regain their sense of interest and curiosity in learning science, thereby opening doors to many post-secondary majors in fields such as medicine, dentistry and pharmacy.
In grades 11 and 12, science courses in Vancouver schools branch out into separate subjects, such as chemistry, biology, physics and earth sciences. Based on their post-secondary and career plans, students can select the applicable courses from the available options.
Grade 1 Science Tutoring
In first grade science, students learn about the natural world and are introduced to concepts in various fields of science. Some lessons are tangible, and students explore through experimentation and models. Other lessons involve non-tangible ideas, such as living things being made up of small parts.
Grade 2 Science Tutoring
In grade 2 science, students practice making predictions and finding patterns in the world around them. They also learn about the natural resources and the importance of these resources for living things.
BASIRI Tutors instill a love of learning and exploration in our students so that they gain a strong foundation in their scientific knowledge and critical thinking skills.
Grade 3 Science Tutoring
Grade 3 science students explore the plant life cycle and human-built structures and learn the relationships between the sun, earth, moon and the planets.
BASIRI Tutors instill an appreciation for learning science at a young age. Our tutors work with students to help them plan, organize and present their scientific thinking to prepare them for higher grades.
Grade 4 Science Tutoring
Fourth graders work on projects that encourage them to create hypotheses and predictions. Science topics include learning about the food chain, lights and sounds, as well as weather components and patterns.
BASIRI Tutors help students instill a strong knowledge of science concepts, encouraging them to use critical thinking and science knowledge to analyze cases and make predictions.
Grade 5 Science Tutoring
Fifth graders can observe and experiment to gather data and draw conclusions. In grade 5, students learn about the different parts and systems of the human body. They learn about and experiment with simple and compound machines. They learn about renewable and non-renewable resources by observing the environment.
Grade 6 Science Tutoring
Sixth grade science curriculum builds upon students’ increasing knowledge of math concepts to introduce more complex science topics. Students working through an inquiry based model of teaching experience hands-on exploration through project-based learning or small experiments.
While students are exposed to inquiry based learning in school, BASIRI tutors ensure that they have a strong grasp of the concepts learned and are able to recall and use the knowledge through test-based tutoring.
Grade 7 Science Tutoring
For students who have not learned and practiced study skills, science can become intimidating in 7th grade as students are introduced to more complex concepts. At BASIRI Tutoring, our test-based approach teaches students to recall and use the concepts they learn in order to increase retention. Our tutorials help students with testing by reducing test anxiety in higher grades.
Grade 8 Science Tutoring
Eighth grade is a crucial time to eliminate deficiencies in all academic areas as well as to get organized and learn the study skills necessary for high school and beyond. At BASIRI Tutoring, we emphasize a strong knowledge base of the science concepts so that our students can successfully participate in their classwork and projects while preparing for higher grades.
Grade 9 Science Tutoring
Ninth grade is a crucial time to teach and practice study skills and test-taking skills in science courses. These skills become increasingly important as students prepare for their high school graduation and post-high school life. At BASIRI Tutoring, we emphasize a strong knowledge base of the science concepts so that our students can successfully participate in their classwork and projects while preparing for higher grades.
Grade 10-12 Science Tutoring
Grade 10 science encompasses all three fields of chemistry, physics and biology. Students explore these different fields to gauge their interest and expand their knowledge of how things work around them. In grades 11 and 12, science is divided into individual courses, and students have the option of taking chemistry, biology or physics, or any combinations of these fields.
Students in grade 11 and 12 will diverge in their science education based on their future academic plans. Whether the student decides to take one science course or all the major science courses, BASIRI tutors help their students succeed in these courses and prepare for post-secondary education using a test-based approach.
