"Knowledgeable but Impatient"

- Krissy from Sachse, TX on 3/23/13
Bruce replied on 3/30/2013:

Krissy, Thank you very much for having provided feedback concerning your recent tutoring experience with me for General Chemistry 2. Several issues that were raised in your correspondence require further clarification in order to put the whole experience in its proper context. First, you informed me from the beginning that you were weak in General Chemistry 1 and received a subpar grade in this course. The topics in General Chemistry 2 were becoming increasingly more complex and would continue in that fashion as the course unfolded. Problems required a higher level of critical-thinking skills and also incorporation of a number of key concepts from General Chemistry 1. In addition, mathematical skills such as handling logarithms, solving quadratic and simple Algebra 1 equations, and setting up and solving proportions all required mastery in order to successfully handle current problems. Second, as our sessions progressed, my assessment was that there were just too many past weak links that required remediation in the limited amount of session time I could devote to have eventually brought you up to speed for success. Not having read a chapter (or at least its summary) due to lack of time and prior to a session only compounded matters. Since many students, particularly those planning to enter the medical field, require an additional year of Organic Chemistry, it becomes even more vital for success to have acquired a strong mastery of both General Chemistry 1 and General Chemistry 2 core topics. Yes, I admit that sometimes I appear tough, but this comes from many years experience of knowing the necessary skills for success and having had an intense personal interest in both the short- and long-term welfare of all of my students. I was just attempting to be honest and open. Accordingly, based upon the aforementioned, I was not your best fit for your overall situation. Best wishes, Bruce H.

"Thorough and Patient Tutor"

- Susan from Richardson, TX on 6/6/12
Bruce replied on 6/17/2013:

Susan, After the positive experience in having worked with your son in Pre-AP Algebra 2, I wish to thank you so much for, once again, having selected me to guide him to success in Precalculus over the majority of this recently-concluded schoolyear. It was very satisfying to know that my style of breaking down complex concepts in both Algebra 2 and Precalculus into simpler parts will serve him well when he proceeds into Calculus. Best wishes! Bruce
