GradePeak has been wonderful. I signed up for sessions after I received a 60 on my first calculus exam. With their help, I was able to score a 95 on my second math 110 calculus midterm. I know this would not have been possible without tutoring. They are incredibly knowledgeable and very eager to help students learn. I would definitely recommend GradePeak to anyone looking for extra help! -Kelly
Have you been to a GradePeak review yet? Me and some friends tried it out for chem 110 and it was by far the best experience. We learned more in three hours than all semester or anywhere else. It also prepared us well for our future classes. We continued to go to GradePeak for chem 112, chem 210, and chem 212. Thanks for the help and getting us all good grades. -Katie
I signed up with GradePeak after my first Math 141 test that i got a 43 on. With their help I almost doubled my score to an 85 on the second exam which was supposed to be the harder of the two. Without the tutoring, there would of been no way of me doing so well. I also asked some questions on physics 212 since I got a 65 on the first test. After working for just a little over an hour, I was able to raise my grade to an 82. I definitely suggest GradePeak for tutoring, it will help you out. -Mike
I found gradepeak to be really helpful. It also made me a lot less stressed out about my courses Math 140, Math 141, Chem 110, Chem 112, Phys 250, and Phys 251. They are really good at explaining the material. -Rachel
I have been going to Gradepeak for a few months now and I have to say that the only reason I am passing Phys 212 is because of their help. I would have never understood electric and magnetic fields without them! As an engineering student, I am of course taking insane classes and usually you would need a separate tutor for all of them. The instructor can answer my questions for all of my math (Math 251, Math 231) and science courses (E Mch 211, E Mch 213) so it definitely saves me time and money. I can work on Calculus for a half hour and then Engineering Mechanics for the remainder. Thank you so much! I couldn't be an engineer without you! <3 Jackie
Went to review sessions for math 140 and math 141 and loved them all, now coming back for math 251. They present the material in such a way that it is very easy to grasp and it makes you wonder how you didn't understand it before. Definitely recommended!!! -Jill
GradePeak has helped me so much!! The first time I came, I pretty much had a crash course in Math 141, and now I am here for 3 of my classes, Chem 110, Phys 212 and EMch 213. The best thing is that I can ask questions from all 3, or if there's an exam coming up, spend the whole time working on that subject. The tutor is very flexible and great when it comes to adding extra hours for exams/finals. Coming to GradePeak has definitely helped my grades, and the best part is that I actually understand what I am being taught here, unlike learning the material from elsewhere. -Lindsay
I tried out a free review session with the competitor and absolutely hated it. The competitor did not answer any questions and didn't seem to really understand the material. Then I tried GradePeak and loved it. They are very knowledgeable and do not avoid answering questions. It was a way better experience and well worth the money. -GM
Prior to tutoring with Grade Peak I was using other tutors, office hours, and the math center to struggle through the first couple weeks of Math 141. I started going to Grade Peak only a week before the second test and managed to learn and understand all of the material on sequences and series while getting an A on the test. I have never worked with such a knowledgeable tutor who could decipher calculus in such a straightforward, easy to understand way. Thank you so much for all of your help!! -Melania
As soon as I came to a gradepeak review session, I wondered why I ever tried anywhere else out. This place is by far the best and helped me get an A in many courses. -Samantha
This is the second time I went to gradepeak for help. I got tutored in Emch 210 this time, and with his help, increased my grade from a low C or D to a B+. He explains the subject extremely well and really helps me understand the material. Thanks to him, I did great in both Emch, and last semester Math 141. -Mark
The VERY best review sessions around, they have helped ace many exams! I came for phys 211, phys 212, emch 212, math 141, and math 251. My grades definitely improved drastically. -Jared
The person I met with was a great tutor, and he has helped me with many difficult classes including Phys 211, Phys 212, Math 220, Math 230, Math 250, and E Mch 210. He simplifies information and makes even complex material easy to understand. GradePeak is an excellent tutoring service! -Grace
I have tried another tutoring service and hated it, I went to gradepeak and it was a completely different experience. They make sure you are prepared to do well, and more importantly get their problems CORRECT! -Phil
After failing my midterm in PHYS 214, I started going to GradePeak and meeting with the instructor a couple times a week. The instructor clearly explained the material to me and helped me with difficult concepts I could not understand. I ended up getting an 87 on the final and did well in the class. Thanks for all of your help! -Laura
I have attended reviews for chem 110, chem 112, and phys 211 with gradepeak. I recommend to anyone who wants to perform better. Thanks! -Matt
GradePeak has helped me sooo much! I started going here last year when I was failing Phys 211. Since then they helped me with PHYS 212, Math 220, Math 231, and Emch 211. They are able to teach me what I have to know in a simple manner which is really nice. Also, after meeting I do all my online homework and I always get 100% on them. I definitely recommend going to gradepeak if you are struggling in any class. Everyone is super nice!!! -Christie
After hearing all the horror stories about organic chemistry (chem 210), I felt very uneasy about how I would do in the class. I signed up with GradePeak the very first time taking the course, not wanting to drop it and retake it again and met with him a few hours each week for private instruction on the class. The course is a lot of work but with gradepeak the class actually started to seem interesting. I happily ended up obtaining an A for a final grade in the course and know that a grade like that would have been unlikely without him. Thanks for all your help with chem 210 and last semester chem 112! -Eric
I attended the free Math 140 review session and learned more than I have in class. The instructor explains everything so thoroughly offering alternative ways to find solutions and takes the time to offer help with any additional homework problems as well. He is very knowledgeable too. Definitely worth my time and I will continue to use gradepeak for all my courses! -Natalie
I decided to give gradepeak a try for Phys 211 after hearing great things from others. I now see what they are talking about, I have since been to review sessions for Math 141, Math 220, Math 231, Math 251, Phys 212, Phys 213, Phys 214, E Mch 211, and now E Mch 212, E Mch 213. At these review sessions they do not just show you how to do well on an exam. They actually teach and explain the material so that you can not only understand the class itself, but also be prepared for future classes. What a great place for an engineering major! -Steve
I have attended gradepeak for both private instruction and review sessions in stat 200, econ 102, econ 104, and acctg 211. They are not only intelligent there, they know how to explain concepts in all classes very well. Thank you for all the help! -Ally
You know when they say you get out what put in? It really applies to the big lecture classes at Penn State. If you just go to class, and the University review sessions, you will get an average grade. If you want to go above and beyond, you need more than what the University has to offer. I attended all of the Chem 210 gradepeak review sessions and it really made a difference. I understood the material so well after these sessions, I was able to teach it to my friends. gradepeak is probably one of the best bargains I have come across at State. -Christopher
Tutoring with GradePeak was a great experience. It helped me gain a full understanding of my physics and engineering classes, and helped me earn a much better GPA. -Mike
Dude, your assistance over the years has been incredibly helpful. I am still amazed at the scope of knowledge you continue to demonstrate at the variety of subjects I managed to bombard you with. -Tom
As a Pre Med major, I have had to take many difficult classes including chem 110, chem 112, chem 210, chem 212, phys 211, phys 212, math 140, and math 141. I have attended all parts of the gradepeak review sessions for each of these classes and they have helped me sooo much! It is great to have one person lead all of these reviews. You rock! -Lauren
After struggling through math 140 and physics 211, I decided to look into getting a tutor. I came across gradepeak and I'm so glad that I did. After signing up, I watched my grades rise from the average B-/C to the B+/A range. They are very knowledgeable in the maths and sciences and present the information in a clear and understandable way. -Mike
Thanks for everything! gradepeak is the best! -Allison
When should I start?
The best time to start meeting for Private Instruction is at the very beginning of the semester. No single action will make a bigger difference to your grades than this! We will schedule any student at any time during the semester, but those that start at the beginning do much better overall. We can even schedule your appointments for before the semester begins. If you feel that an upcoming course is going to cause you trouble, contact us today!
Why should I pay for Private Instruction or Review Sessions?
Unlike tuition, our rates have remained capped and will continue to be so for years to come. A semester with us does cost considerably less than a single class tuition. Meeting with us will benefit you in many ways:
- You will not have to take the class again.
- You will not have to pay for the class again.
- You will not have to be stressed out by the class again.
- You will not have to fall behind in your course curriculum.
- You will not have to see a withdraw or worse grade on your transcripts.
- You will not have to consider changing your major because of the class.
- Instead, you can make it through the first time, often with a good grade.
- This helps build both your confidence and your GPA!
