AP Tutoring

Dogwood’s tutors help students with over 30 Advanced Placement (AP) courses that teach college-level material to high school students. Many students come for help throughout the school year but more need help with the AP exams at the end of the courses.

AP courses are optional but high-performing high school students often need them to be competitive in college admissions. Some highly selective colleges like UGA are admitting applicants who take an average of nine AP (or IB) courses in high school. The result is that AP students tend to study longer hours and experience more stress than students who take less rigorous courses.

AP Exams in May 2021

The good news is the AP exams will return to their pre-Covid formats in 2021.

  • Tests will go back to the typical lengths of two to three hours
  • Tests will be taken at school where possible. If a school is closed due to Covid, students will be allowed to take AP exams at home
  • Students will take tests early in May (5/3-5/14) — with makeup dates later in May
