Students at CIP Berkshire achieved a Grade Point Average this Spring term of 3.07, a nice improvement from last term.
Congratulations to students who worked very hard to earn many A’s and B’s. One might think that these were easy courses or introductory courses, but many courses were advanced and demanding.
Two students took Network Fundamentals and Routing Protocols, computer science courses, and received A’s. Students received high grades in courses such as Systems Operations, Intro to Electricity and Electronics, Racial & Ethnic Minorities, Biology, Business Law, Anatomy & Physiology, Psychology, Algebra, Economics and Western Civilization.
Good grades require commitment, dedication, and of course, time spent in tutoring and studying independently. It is nice to see that study skills and executive functioning skills are being learned and practiced.
Tutors also invest their knowledge, skills and dedication toward helping students to learn and acquire knowledge and new skills. There are often many ups and downs throughout a term when tutors serve as an academic coach to resolve issues such as calling or emailing your professor, talking to your professor, advocating for your special needs, asking for extra credit, pulling up a really bad grade, getting it all done in the time you have, getting assignments and knowing where they are, among many others.
I want to commend the tutors at Berkshire for doing a great job. They are invested in their students and go above and beyond to assist students in achieving their academic goals.
We wish all of our students growth and success and will continue to teach and guide them toward their goals.
