Content Structure

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.

 

Course Structure

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.
