Ch 25: Physical Science - Sedimentary Rocks - A Deeper Look: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Sedimentary Rocks chapter of this High School Physical Science Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about rocks formed by sediment deposits. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the essential sedimentary rocks concepts required in a typical high school physical science course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other high school physical science work.
  • Identify the sedimentary rocks concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our high school physical science tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about sedimentary rocks and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding lithification of sediments, detrital and chemical sedimentary rocks, how to determine the origin of a sedimentary rock or any other sedimentary rocks topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
  • Prefer learning science visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their sedimentary rocks unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in high school physical science
  • Don't have access to their science teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning about sedimentary rocks simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live physical science tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about sedimentary rocks on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.
