Boost your confidence & make faster progress

Is this you?

Do you feel that your faculty doesn’t have time to answer your questions? 

Or that if you ask too many questions, your classmates and faculties will judge you...? 

Do you have an upcoming exam and you need help right now? 

Have you failed the boards and feel completely lost? 

Even though you are doing your best, you still feel that you are not making enough progress.

Many dental hygiene students are feeling this way.

But the truth is that you can’t afford to waste more time.

That's why we're here to hold your hand and help you reach your goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the schedule?

Tutoring sessions are held every week on Tuesday at 6pm CST (7pm EST, 5pm MST, 4pm PST).

In a month, you will get about 8 group tutoring sessions. Each session is 2 hrs long. 

Q. Will this be recorded?

All sessions will be recorded and you will be able to watch them from your StudentRDH account.

The recording will eventually be replaced by the newest sessions, to allow more space for discussions.

Q. What will happen during the session?

1. Deep dive into the topic of the day (90min): This will be a topic that is extremely important for you to know (example, the furcation classifications)

We'll also cover any new updates that may affect you (example: new NBDHE guidelines).

2. Kahoot! (5min): Cement all concepts in your brain while having fun! 

3. Questions & Answers (30min): Get answers to all your headaches! We'll make sure to bring explanations from trusted sources and scientific evidence.

Q. What if I have questions during the week? Do I have to wait until next Tuesday?

As a member of the Tutoring Program, you get exclusive access to the Tutoring Discussion Board. Your questions will be answered by fellow students, and our faculties.

Example: “I am confused about the new AAP classification, how are staging and grading different?”

Please submit any questions you want to get answers for during the live sessions by Monday midnight, of the corresponding tutoring week.

Q. How much is it?

The Tutoring program is only $69/month! (It’s less than $9 per hour) 

Our group sessions are extremely helpful because you also get to learn from other students' questions. 

Q. What if I want to stop the program?

No problem, you can cancel your subscription anytime. This is a monthly commitment, so you can opt-in and out easily. 

For example, if you join on Jan 5th, and you wanted to take some time off during your finals in May, you can choose to not renew your program. Then, you can join again.

Q. Can I join anytime?

Yes, you can! However, we have a limited number of seats available so we cannot guarantee availability. 

Our group is small so we can provide personalized support. 

Q. What if I don’t have StudentRDH yet?

That’s okay! This program is for anyone who wants extra help. 

Q. Is this for junior or senior students?

Tutoring is for anyone who wants to be successful. It does not matter if you are in your first semester or in your last semester. We can all learn from each others’ questions!

Q. How does payment work?

Our Tutoring Program is a monthly subscription which means that it auto-renews every month (your credit card will be charged every month). 

If you ever want to cancel, you can do so anytime from your Dashboard. 

Please make sure to cancel before the renewal date! 

When you cancel your membership you lose access to everything including the live session replays. You can request a link to rewatch the last session (expires after 7 days)

Q. What if I want private tutoring?

We totally understand, sometimes you want to go the extra mile!
