Earth Science Regents Prep
Earth Science Regents Prep
At Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring we keep our classes small to give each of our students the individual attention they require to review topics that need to be broken down further and to answer all questions. Smaller classes are statistically proven to positively affect learning.
Class Size: 10-15 students (max 18)
Time: 9am - 4pm EST (multiple short breaks and a 45-minute lunch break)
Location: The Murphy Center - across the street from Iona College Main Campus (taught in comfortable air-conditioned classrooms)
Students will receive a review book created by Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring containing worksheets, Regents questions, and thorough content review.
All our instructors are state certified teachers with multiple years of experience and exam prep experience as well. We take the time to interview our teachers and prep them to be fully able to cover complex subjects, answer questions, and have a strong classroom presence that helps our students feel comfortable and confident.
Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring teachers will review the content topics encompassing a full-year’s curriculum through mini-lesson. Each mini-lesson is followed by Regents practice problems, and the teacher will review the problems and answer questions after each topic session. Our teachers will answer student questions during class time, and break-time can be used for additional questions. Teachers will also cover strategies and best practices for the specific Regents exam that the students are taking.
For our students to have the best experience possible – please notify us in advance if a student has any special needs that may need unique accommodations in the classroom. Our goal is always to bring the best and most informative experience for all our students, so we will always abide by them and do what we can to accommodate every student.
[*If your child cannot perform well in a class of 18 or requires further individual attention in certain subjects, Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring offers private tutoring and small group sessions for 2-7 students, we're happy to suite the needs of all different learning styles and methods]

Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring gives a topic by topic review of the Earth Science Regents Exam. We review major topics like: Size, Shape, and Composition of Earth; Mapping, Rocks and Minerals, Weathering, Erosion, Deposition, and Landforms; Earthquakes and Tectonic Plates, Earth History, Meteorology and Climate, and Astronomy. After each section teachers will hand out practice questions, review answers, answer any questions and continue to the next topic. Students will also learn how to correctly read and use the Earth Science reference tables.
One of a Kind | Hands-on Lab Practical Review
Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring is the ONLY exam prep course that offers a hands-on lab practical review for students to experience and get ready for every part of this test. The lab part of the Earth Science Regents makes up 16% of the total grade – and therefore is a part that is quite important to review. We bring in rocks, materials, and teach students techniques like drawing ellipses and other crucial concepts. This part of the exam is given in school a week before the rest of the Earth Science Regents exam.
Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring’s Earth Science Regents prep course is set up as a small class capped at 18 students. Teacher that has years of experience and is currently a local high school or college teacher.
Class runs from 9am-4pm, with several 5-10 minute breaks, and a longer 45-minute lunch break.
Classes are taught close to exam dates so that students will retain more information and are designed for review of previously learned concepts with a focus on test-taking strategies and practice problems – we call these “mini-lessons”.
These mini-lessons are followed by questions and further review. Teachers walk around while students are working on the practice problems of each individual concept – which is another opportune time for students to ask individual questions about questions they are working on. We also welcome additional questions during breaks.
Our teachers are there to help you get answers and understand the material, not to “get through” the course.
