Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's included in the tutoring session?

    Tutoring is completely personalized, and custom designed to every student’s specific needs.

    Some students prefer to loosely follow the course syllabus and customize it based on their practice exam results and progress.

    Other students may just want help conquering a specific section or question type.

    If you are unsure of what you need, Prof. Gordon will help you to identify your strengths and weaknesses and figure out a plan that’s perfect for you.

  • How many tutoring hours do I need?

    The number of hours, from 2 on up, and where to spend them depends on your specific goals and the span of exam topics you need to cover.

    Many Exam Success students use tutoring as a study supplement and they generally have a sense of what their strengths and weaknesses are and want to drill down on specific topics, concepts or questions they find challenging. With the focused attention tutoring delivers, they are able to get over the passing score.

    The decision as to how many tutoring hours to take ultimately will come down to your specific situation and needs — there is no set tutoring syllabus.

    If you think you might be interested in many hours of tutoring, it is suggested you start with one or two initial sessions to ensure that your coaching sessions are adequately useful.
