21st Night is really, really good at helping tutoring clients achieve their goals. In fact, that’s why it was designed.
In my own graduate exam tutoring practice, I wanted a central place to:
- Assign my clients work
- See their proficiency on the problems I assigned
- Make sure they were actually remembering what I taught
Hence, 21st Night!
It has flashcards for the homework, proficiency analytics for mastery, and a spaced repetition algorithm to get concepts from the problems I assigned into their long-term memory.
To see it in action, watch the video below, or read on!
Let’s start with how I set it up. Here’s an example deck that I’ve created.
When I click through, I get to see how each student is doing on the questions, including any notes they’ve taken for themselves explaining the problem or giving themselves hints (which, depending on the quality of their explanation, can be a good place for me to step in).
I can also assign them additional questions just for themselves.
Using this app (available on mobile or desktop, by the way), I can achieve much better outcomes for my students with minimal effort on my part.
Our tutoring sessions are more productive, as I know exactly what my students are having trouble with.
On their own time, my students’ self-studying is much more productive, as 21st Night forces them to review and redo the questions that they have the most trouble with.
Last, my clients are even happier than before because they can see the progress they’ve made. They can see every question they’ve mastered right in 21st Night.
