The first thing you need to consider is who will help you in getting your exam kinetics questions right. You should start by asking your AP Chemistry teacher for advice in finding an AP Chemistry tutoring center and then it is time to interview several potential tutors.
There are plenty of people on the Internet who claim to have expert knowledge of teachers’ expertise and experience. These individuals usually can tell you which tutors they have personally worked with in the past and whether or not they were able to get their student’s examinations to pass. Ask for a list of such teachers and then make a decision.
With so many places to interview, the most important factor to consider is how many students are in your class. What I would do is choose one teacher who has two or three students and then follow up with your teacher. What I am getting at here is that many teachers will give you their honest opinion on a tutor.
But when it comes to getting an unbiased opinion from your prospective teacher, you are out of luck. As a result, my preferred option is to interview a handful of potential tutors.
Questions: Interview each potential tutor and pick out his/her best points. Your final decision will not be based solely on the answers you get from the tutors, but you can’t really go wrong with a bunch of experts.
I had a tutor who could tell me where I was going wrong with my exam kinetics questions, and he was the only one who actually tried to help me in this regard. Some people were just “that” type of teacher, but I can honestly say that he was one of the best I have ever had.
Be careful not to jump into any agreements. It is a very human thing to look for other people’s opinions, but you must remember that you have to get your own first before you commit. Just because another individual does not share your opinion doesn’t mean that they have been wrong about something in the past.
Therefore, make sure you thoroughly ask each person if you are sharing their opinion, whether they are an instructor, if they have worked with the teacher before, what grade point average they might recommend, and anything else you may need to know. This is what you should do.
However, if your goal is to be a specialist who passes a lot of exams, then just focus on the subject matter and not the grade point average. Some teachers will give you a grade point average as a baseline, but if you want to be a specialist, there is no point giving them a minimum grade for your efforts.
On the other hand, I’ve had a good experience with some teachers who won’t even bother to give me a grade point average for my efforts, but instead, they will tell me where I went wrong, but not where I can improve. They are usually okay with not answering all of my questions because they know that you will never get to all of them.
With these few suggestions, you can save yourself quite a bit of frustration, and still get your exam kinetics questions answered. Of course, this is just one of the many factors involved in getting a tutor, but it may be one of the more important ones.
