Students Feedback of Their First Session:


"Oh my god, no tutor I've ever worked with has given me worksheets, past exams, and a folder... I learn really well in that way where everything is very concise and clear cut and color coded...so it was really helpful"
- Student in CHEM 241 UMD Tutoring with Dr. Daniel Falvey Fall 2016


"I feel better already...I really learn better 1-on-1. My notes that I take in class, with all my chem professors so far look like a foreign language to me. They don't give all the details, like you (tutor) started with 'Oxidation means this, and Reduction is this...' I literally feel better already"
- Student in CHEM 241 UMD Tutoring with Dr. Daniel Falvey Fall 2016


"That is a lot easier, thank you! I've been at this for hours and you did it in 5 minutes"
- Student in CHEM 241 UMD Tutoring with Dr. Michael Montague-Smith Spring 2018


"This way is definitely easier (lesson learned with tutor), makes more sense. The way he (Dr. MS) does it, it just feels like reaction after reaction after reaction. They're just all separate things you have to memorize - that's more overwhelming than this way."
- Student in CHEM 241 UMD Tutoring with Dr. Michael Montague-Smith Spring 2018


"I'm getting everything so this is a miracle. I work a lot better when it's just one-page (summaries provided by tutor), read that, understand it, do it again and you're fine...I've tried to read Loudoun (textbook), and he's just a mess - I never understand what Loudoun is saying and it's really confusing so this is a lot better"
- Student in CHEM 241 UMD Tutoring with Dr. Daniel Falvey Fall 2016


"I think I need this, because I had no idea what I was doing before today. (tutor) Do you feel more confident about attacking the problems? (student) especially about those that we just went over....there is a pattern that you can recognize"
- Student in CHEM 241 UMD Tutoring with Dr. Michael Montague-Smith Spring 2018


"This was extremely helpful you have no idea. At least now I know when I"m studying I'll know what I'm actually studying about"
- Student in CHEM 231 UMD Tutoring with Dr. Joseph Houck Spring 2015


(tutor) "Was this helpful at all?" (student) "A thousand percent!"
- Student in CHEM 231 UMD Tutoring with Dr. Joseph Houck Fall 2015


"I wish I had called you before the 2nd exam - that would've been really helpful'"
- Student in CHEM 231 UMD Tutoring with Dr. Lee Friedman Fall 2015


"This filled in a lot of holes for me, and I think that's what I'm missing, I think the biggest problem is that I'm trying to do all these problems without a basis to do so...I think this helped a lot"
- Student in CHEM 241 UMD Tutoring with Dr. Herman Sintim Fall 2015


"That helped so much I understand more than I have this whole class"
- Student in CHEM 135 UMD Tutoring with Dr. Monique Koppel Fall 2015
