Please explain what was most helpful about your tutoring sessions.
"My tutor ensures that I do all the work myself so that I'm actually learning the material and she's not just giving me answers."
"The tutor reassured me that I was on track and provided me with the assistance I needed with specific problems."
"[The tutor] broke down the information in terms that were more understandable than those in the book."
"He taught it in groups, which was great because other people addressed problems I would have overlooked and not studied."
"My tutor is very good at explaining 'why' and can explain reasons behind processes. Additionally, he is good at identifying what I am doing wrong [so I'm] able to fix it."
"My tutor, Nicole L., was always available to meet me no matter what.
She helped me drastically in math from my first test being a 52 to my
next test being a 102! She broke down the information for me in a way I
could comprehend it. She worked with me for almost 4 hours every week
and was extremely flexible! She is the best!"
