AP Tutors in NYC - Ivy Tutors Network

AP Exams

Given in May, Advanced Placement (AP) exams are both challenging and a great way to show universities that you can excel in college level classes. Even better, scoring a 4 or 5 on AP exams can even exempt you from taking those classes as a freshman in college! Also a little known fact: students are allowed to take AP exams even if they aren’t offered at their school, which is particularly useful especially if you’re a wiz-kid in a specific subject like History or English. Whether you’re looking for tutoring to bolster what you’re learning in your AP Class, need to practice your standardized test-taking, or are looking for support as you taking an AP exam not offered at your school, our tutors have helped countless students score 5s and 4s on AP exams, earning them college credit at many universities! We offer tutoring in all AP Subjects: AP History (Art, US, World, European); AP Government and Politics; AP Language (English Literature & Language, French, Spanish Literature & Language, Japanese, Italian, German, Latin, Seminar); AP STEM (Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Computer Science & Principles, Human Geography, Environmental Science, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Physics, Psychology, Statistics, Research); AP Art & Design and AP Music Theory.
