Ryan was very prompt and provided meaningful feedback on a history paper assignment.Jun 13, 2017Verified
A few weeks into it and it's been great! Dr. Bates is extremely helpful and gets you thinking beyond what you need. He's super supportive and is easy to talk to! He provides help beyond his sessions and takes time out of his personal life too before to prepare for the session.Feb 28, 2017
Approximately once a week, a 30 minute session was scheduled. Since I am in AP Seminar, each session involved the discussion on how to further improve my paper, fix my line of reasoning, and provide proper explanations and evidence. At the beginning of the writing process, the paper was pretty rough, but with the help of Dr. Bates, my paper was in great condition. Every time we had peer review in class, my paper was barely ever commented on because Dr. Bates had prepared me to cover all the points necessary to possibly receive a high in each category of the rubric. Everything about the process of the tutoring sessions went very well and the advice and aid provided was extremely helpful. If there was one thing that did not go smoothly was the planning according to my schedule as there were always things coming up, but Dr. Bates did an amazing job of accommodating for these instances and ensuring that proper guidance was offered.Apr 5, 2017
