FREE Tutoring Night was a Blast!

Our first ever Free Tutoring Night event took place on Wednesday of last week at the East Millcreek Library, and it was a MAJOR success. We had five of our incredible tutors available all evening and drew a crowd of about 20 students from as far north as Layton and as far south as Springville. We helped in a wide variety of subjects such as ACT prep, Algebra, Calculus BC, AP Physics, and Differential Equations. We gave out free snacks and prizes, and we had some interesting puzzles for students to work on. We were pleased with all of the great learning that happened. Take a look at the cool things that went on that night.

ACT Prep

Victor explains the use of colons, semi-colons, and dashes. Knowing the rules of punctuation is essential to earning a high score on the ACT English section.

I worked in a room of 6 students who were seeking extra help in preparation for the ACT on December 9th. We had a lot of fun together, and everybody came out learning a ton of new tricks and fundamental concepts. We went over several essential math and language topics. We talked about timing and elimination strategies that have helped hundreds of our former students drastically improve their ACT scores. Occasionally, we would pause to have a snack and talk about some interesting science topics such as gravitation waves.

Each student received one of our packets containing ACT practice problems, important testing strategies, study tips, and a list of recommended resources. Some students won small prizes by being the first to answer some challenging questions.

At High Performance Tutoring, we have exceptional, one-on-one ACT Prep courses in Utah in which we teach students the important concepts and strategies proven to raise ACT scores. We have an amazing curriculum and structured programs for students of all ability levels. We can work around busy schedules and we always travel to the student’s location.

Math & Science Tutoring

Our tutors worked one-on-one with students to help with a variety of topics. Some students needed help with problems on their homework, some were studying for midterms, and others were getting ready for standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, GMAT, and ASVAB.

The was no question too challenging or topic too obscure for our tutors; they helped with it all. One student needed help proving the Triangle Inequality for n-dimensional vectors using the Cauchy-Schwarz Inequality. Another had trouble using Kirkoff’s law to solve for the current across the resistors in a complex circuit. Others had more basic questions such as solving a quadratic equation by the factoring method. Every student got all their questions answered and had a great time while learning.

Our tutors are highly knowledgeable, they know how to explain concepts clearly, they have great personalities, and they are extremely reliable. High Performance Tutoring is known for having the best team of tutors in the state of Utah. At any of our Free Tutoring Night events, you can meet our tutors and experience what a difference it makes to work with learning professionals who are High Performance Certified.

Fun Logic Puzzles

Tim is taking a shot at the Tower of Hanoi puzzle we brought to this event. It can be solved in as few as 127 moves. The larger challenge is figuring out the right move sequence.

We brought several fun math and logic puzzles to Free Tutoring Night including a Tower of Hanoi puzzle, 3x3x3 and 5x5x5 Rubik’s cubes, a 12-sided Rubik’s cube, Sudoku puzzles, and a number of fascinating brain teasers. We challenged students to solve whatever puzzles or brain teasers they found fun or interesting and gave out prizes to those who were successful. These puzzles are a great way to exercise reasoning and critical thinking skills. They were perfect for students who finished their work early or needed a short break.

We will bring lots of cool puzzles to every one of our Free Tutoring Night events. As fun as solving a puzzle is understanding how and why the solution works. We love helping students understand the mysteries behind challenging problems.
