AP Curriculum

AP Chemistry


The AP Chemistry course cultivates the student understanding of chemistry through inquiry based investigations, as they explore topics such as: atomic structure, inter molecular forces and bonding, chemical reactions, kinetics, thermodynamics, and equilibrium. Review the course content in the next tab List of Topics.

Each student is assigned to a Stutorialz-selected AP Chemistry tutor to help and guide them throughout their AP Chemistry online course. The course is a blend of digital one-on-one sessions with the student’s designated AP Chemistry tutor and self-guided study online. Each week leading up to the AP Chemistry exam, students will have one or two sessions with their tutor. In between the live sessions, students will engage with the lectures, interact with online resources, and take AP Chemistry practice tests. Computer-based activities and assignments reinforce concepts taught in the course and may signal where the student needs extra AP Chemistry help. Students and parents can use the site to check progress and access tools, including chapter quizzes, midterm exams, and a cumulative final.

If you’re having trouble committing concepts like the four laws of thermodynamics, chemical equilibrium, forward reactions, and reverse reactions to memory, our expert Stutorialz AP Chemistry tutors can help are here to help. Available around the clock and a match for your student’s learning style, our tutors offer AP Chemistry help online during one-on-one sessions and through individual study. In a course as difficult as AP Chemistry, having a resource to answer your questions leading up to the AP Chemistry Exam will be invaluable on test day. Our AP Chemistry tutors can explain concepts from kinetics to the ratio of masses in a way that’s easy to understand. The AP Chemistry online course combines individualized digital tutoring sessions, and self-guided study using a number of online resources, including lectures, live lessons, AP Chemistry practice tests, chapter quizzes, and more. Students and parents can use the site to check progress and access tools, including chapter quizzes, midterm exams, and a cumulative final.
