  • Students will be led directly using the content of the science course.

  • Students desiring extra help or review outside their course (whether with Learning CTR Online or not) should consider the recitation class (Chemistry Recitation / Physics Recitation) or session as an inexpensive option or can set up an individual office hour for the tutoring fee.

  • Only students who desire to work hard and improve FOR THEMSELVES are candidates for tutoring.

Kara D

I was struggling in Chemistry class. I had a D average going into the last quarter of the course. After 4 sessions with Mr. Riesen, I received an 85% on the state exam and a B in the course! I had confidence and concentration like never before.

Daniel Z

I had failed the first 4 Chemistry tests of the year. I contacted Mr. Riesen for tutoring. He walked me through study skills, test taking, and critical thinking. By the end of the year, my test average was an 84%! I am taking college Chemistry and have an A!


Loreina T

Physics just didn't come easy for me. I was constantly confused and frustrated. So, I spent 4 sessions with Mr. Riesen. I was amazed at how the lights turned on. He would walk me through my tests and show me how to evaluate what I had done and then help me realign my thinking. Long story short, Physics became a whole lot easier for me.

Phillip C

Mr. Riesen has a way to make things simple and clear. He doesn't lecture or talk at you, but asks questions to lead you step by step into a proper understanding. I was skeptical that anyone could help me in Physics, but I was so wrong. Mr. Riesen showed me strategies for taking a test that had nothing to do with the course content, but raised my test average 13%!

Susie M

The best word to describe my tutoring experience is "wow"! I never knew what focus meant, but Mr. Riesen showed me session after session how to concentrate and block out distractions. By the end of the year I literally spent hours less time studying and understood more, resulting in a full letter grade higher for the course.

Matt B

Mr. Riesen instilled confidence in me. He emphasized concentration (blocking out distractions) and confidence in every session. He led me to understandings so that I could figure problems out for myself. The best part is that everything Mr. Riesen taught me about learning I am applying to every other class I take. It really works!
