I signed up to take AP Chemistry my junior year in high school and knew it would be tough, so I preemptively decided to be tutored in the subject before the year began. I was paired up with Cyril, a med school student at Yale. He was efficient and effective as a chemistry tutor, helping me in all aspects of the course – there was a clear emphasis on making sure I actually learned the material before moving on to the next topic. Many of my friends and peers found themselves struggling with the course material mid-way through the year, but with Bulldog Tutor’s help, it was a breeze. This being said, the true benefit of my experience was not in the tutoring, but in the relationship I built with Cyril. We discussed college, standardized test taking strategies, and time management, but we also talked about friendship and life. I found our discussions to be mutualistic too. It seemed as if we could both help each other to learn something new, whether it was inside or outside the classroom. Bulldog Tutor’s offers excellent tutoring, but so do dozens of companies. What sets it apart from its competition is that it offers a unique opportunity for students to find a mentor and a friend and, to me at least, that is invaluable.
