Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you tutor and teach students?
Our deepest goal is to help students understand the math and science around them so they can be responsible adults and help advance the human race faster than we are currently.
We hope to make this as fun for students as possible because, well, it is fun!
This material is all around us and those that do not understand it do not realize what they are missing out. Anyone who says they don’t use anything they learned in school didn’t learn much in school.
How does the high school admissions program work?
First, a practice test is taken.
Then, we will email you the practice test results with a suggested group or individual tutoring based on the student’s needs.
How often do groups meet for High School Admissions, SAT Prep, ACT Prep, or Regents Prep Classes?
Groups typically meet once per week at the same day and time each week. Your student may join multiple groups if requested.
How is placement determined for the High School Admissions groups?
Placement into virtual groups is contingent on the student’s practice test results, targeted high schools, availability, academic aptitude, and academic rigor of a student’s elementary school. John wrote a program that determines optimal group times based on the schedule of everyone in the group. First, we group student’s together by goals and practice test scores. Then we find a time that overlaps with everyone. The student is allowed to move groups although this is not recommended.
How are the lessons accessed?
Prior to the first lesson, we will text or email you a link. This link is the same for each subsequent online lesson and where weekly homework assignments are accessed.
How long are the lessons?
Each lesson is approximately an hour to an hour and a half long depending on how many students are in attendance. If individual lessons, there are typically an hour but based on your needs.
How do I make payment for High School Admissions group lessons?
Payment can be made through a credit card subscription at the bottom of the page at https://www.masterofchemistry.com/high-school-admissions or https://www.
How do I make payments for any lessons?
Payments can be made at masterofchemistry.com/book-me.
What happens if my student misses a group lesson?
All lessons are vitally important! The student will either join another comparative online group or view a video recording of the missed tutoring session.
Homework assignments should still be completed.
Payment is expected for any/all missed lessons. You are paying for the time of the tutor.
Do you have anything to do with the college admissions scandal with Aunt Becky?
No. We prepare tutors as diligently as possible to prepare them not only for the exams but the real world. We will never do any work or pay administrators of the school for admissions. Admissions is completely based on your student’s abilities and how much they grow in our program. We also help prepare students for the SAT and ACT, which requires that students understand the high school admissions material learned in 7th and 8th grade.
Where can I find more info about you?
Do you also teach chemistry, physics, calculus, math, and science?
Yes. This is taking the material learned in 7th and 8th grade to the next level. Students who have a strong foundation in 7th and 8th grade can learn math and the science much more easily. I find that it’s best to teach them as young as possible to have the best long-term benefit.
