Frequently Asked Questions

Open When should I begin?
Close When should I begin?

The sooner the better. If you are anticipating a problem with a particular course, then you should begin sessions during the first or second week of class.

Open Can I start sessions after I've had trouble with one or two midterms?
Close Can I start sessions after I've had trouble with one or two midterms?

Yes. You can begin your sessions any time during the semester, but your expectations must be tempered by where you stand in the class when you seek help

Open How many sessions should I schedule a week?
Close How many sessions should I schedule a week?

Everyone is different, but for most students a single one hour session per week per course with extra sessions immediately before exams is enough .

Close I'm not currently enrolled in a course, but I'm scheduled to take one soon. Can you help me get ready for it?

Sure. Whether you are rusty on a prerequisite for a course you are scheduled to take and want to review or you want to make an early start on the material in order to hit the ground running at the start of the semester, we can help.

Open I have a learning disability. Will you tutor me?
Close I have a learning disability. Will you tutor me?

Yes. We have had several students with learning disabilities in the past and we have been able to accommodate their needs. Please let us know about your disability at the consultation.

Open I took an incomplete in a course. Can you help me get ready to take the exams I missed?
Close I took an incomplete in a course. Can you help me get ready to take the exams I missed?

Maybe. It depends on the reason that you took the incomplete. If you took an incomplete to avoid failing a course, we may not be of much help. On the other hand, if you took an incomplete for medical or personal reasons, then we may be able to help. In any case, you can arrange a free consultation after which we can tell you if we can help.

No. However, we can help you prepare just as we would help you for an in-class exams.

Open Can you guarantee that I'll get a certain grade?
Close Can you guarantee that I'll get a certain grade?

No. We will guarantee that we will work with you to help you to attain your goal, but ultimately your performance will depend on your own efforts.

Open What do I call you?
Close What do I call you?

Most people, including my clients, call me Rege (The first e is long, the g is soft and the last e is silent.) and that's what I prefer you call me.

However, some clients feel that they must use an honorific. If you are one of them, call me Dr. Serinko and not Mr. Serinko. Or even better, if you really want to use an honorific, call me Dr. Rege.
