The B or Better Program.
There are three parts to the program.
PART #1 - During "instructional weeks": We provide ongoing help from the beginning of the semester via our signature "Group" tutoring sessions. They operate like a private high school classroom and are very conducive to learning the material in a way that it can be easily applied. Students must attend two of these sessions per instructional week; the first being on Monday or Tuesday and the second being on Wednesday or Thursday. Here are the available times for our "Group" sessions:
Session times for FINITE MATH-M118
Mon-Thurs 11:15am-12:30pm (with Bill), 2:30pm-3:45pm (with Brandon), 4:00pm-5:15pm (with Bill)
Session times for BRIEF SURVEY OF CALCULUS-M119
Mon-Thurs 1:00pm-2:15pm (with Bill), 5:45pm-7pm (with Brandon)
PART #2 - During "exam weeks": In the days leading up to each in-class exam, the Midterm, and the Final Exam, we provide comprehensive Exam Review Sessions. The purpose of these is two-fold: (1) to make certain all the relevant concepts and formulas are fresh going into the tests, and (2) to demonstrate common "exam-level" questions they will likely have to do. Since typically around 75% of the final course grade is determined by exam scores, it is simply impossible to do poorly on the exams and still do well in the course.
PART#3 - Progress Tracking and in-class accountability: Each Wednesday, students will complete a "grade submission request" such that we can track their progress. Students that are NOT performing at the requisite level on exams and homework will meet with Bill (the CTS owner) to discuss the errors being made and determine what problems occurred. Additionally, we monitor in class participation and attentiveness. Many parents would be surprised to know how much time their children spend on their phones during class. We do NOT tolerate that, and have no issue enforcing this policy for those who are "mailing it in", not really attempting to learn. Students who refuse to put their phones away (as opposed to on their lap or behind their bookbag) will be expelled from the program.
The unique part of The B or Better Program is the refund policy.
Students who successfully complete the program are entitled to grade based compensation if their grade at the end of the semester is lower than a B-. Students who enroll after the first Friday of the semester are not eligible for any grade based compensation should their final course grade be lower than a B-.
