You get the sense that he really gets to know each student and his or her learning strengths and weaknesses.
McLean, Va (PRWEB) July 29, 2015
Tripathi Learning and Enrichment Center, a locally owned tutoring, enrichment and test preparation company has been helping Washington Metro area and out-of-state students do their best on standardized tests as well in academic math and science subjects for over two decades.
Amid growing anxiety among students and parents about the new PSAT to be administered for the first time in October, on July 22, 2015 the Washington Post reported ("Three out of four high schoolers failed Algebra 1 final exams in Md." http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/education/three-out-of-four-high-schoolers-failed-algebra-1-final-exams-in-md-district/2015/07/22/d4ab97d0-2b0f-11e5-bd33-395c05608059_story.html) that 75% of students in Montgomery County, MD failed Algebra. The more than 50% failure rate in Algebra and Geometry was described as an improvement because the failure rate decreased slightly. At a time when news headlines highlight the fact that test scores are not going down, the SAT subject test results of the students trained by Tripathi Learning and Enrichment Center have become a testimony to old fashioned knowledge-based tutoring. On June 2015, of the eight students who took the Math Level II, five scored a perfect 800 while two scored 790 and one 770. Of the two students, who took Chemistry, one scored 800 and the other 780. Similarly, the only student who took Biology scored 800.
Students of Tripathi Learning and Enrichment Center have produced similar success since 1993. Student and parent reviews of Tripathi Learning and Enrichment Center on its Google+ page (https://plus.google.com/+TripathiLearningEnrichmentCenterMcLean/about) reveal the reasons for the success of its students.
One parent said, “Our son particularly appreciated Dr. Tripathi’s instilling in the students the understanding that there are multiple ways to solve any problem. If a student had difficulty understanding, Dr. Tripathi explained in multiple ways until the student grasped the concept. This approach to problem solving has served our young engineer very well. Dr. Tripathi does not coddle his students; he challenges them and gives them the tools for success that they need along with self-confidence to go with it.”
A student said, “What I've learned through a few years attending Tripathi's tutoring has helped me not only to achieve significantly higher marks on standardized tests (e.g. PSAT (NMSQT), SAT) but also to perform better in other academic areas. The testing skills I learned, though they were geared towards specific tests, have helped me in all tests and test-based competitions; the mindset fostered there has improved my ability to focus in classes, clubs, and sports; the seemingly unconventional methods to solve test problems have taught me to approach other problems in different (and generally more efficient) ways. What is more- and, perhaps, more valuable- Tripathi inculcates in his students both a genuine love of learning and an unparalleled drive to succeed.”
Another parent said, “Dr. Tripathi went above and beyond to help our son prepare for the test, tirelessly answered questions, and regularly offered feedback. You get the sense that he really gets to know each student and his or her learning strengths and weaknesses. Our son heads to TJ in the fall and we are very grateful to Dr. Tripathi for helping him get there. We highly recommend Tripathi Learning & Enrichment Center!”
