With 21st Night, you have it. 21st Night is the app I designed to help me with my own tutoring.
21st Night will let you know when your students study, how much they study, and which questions and topics they struggle with.
Plus, it’s a central place to keep all the questions you’ve worked on with a student, so you, the student, or a parent can see exactly what you’ve done together.
The app itself is like a 3-sided collaborative flashcard. Together with a student, you can work on creating a card, with a question, an answer, and an explanation. The student reviews that card for homework, and marks how difficult they found it. As 21st Night uses a spaced repetition algorithm, more difficult cards are resurfaced more often.
As the student reviews cards, 21st Night logs analytics on how long they spend, which cards they review, and how difficult they find them. These analytics are available to the student, the tutor, and the parents.
So, if a student is having particular difficulty on a certain topic or question, you’ll know to focus your tutoring session on that. On the other hand if a student is simply not spending enough time on their questions, you’ll know to focus on that as well.
How to use 21st Night
21st Night is an app designed by a tutor for tutors. In my tutoring practice, we tutor all the graduate exams, which include math, verbal, and content-focused exams.
We use 21st Night to:
- Assign our clients work
- See analytics on the work we assigned them
- Make sure they actually remember what we taught
To see how 21st Night works, watch the video below, or read on!
Let’s start with how to 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, or they can add cards to their own personal deck.
Last, if I want to see how my students are performing on the categories I assigned, I can get either a quick look at their proficiency or a detailed look at the analytics.
Using this app (available on mobile or desktop, by the way), we can achieve much better outcomes for our students with minimal effort on our part.
Our tutoring sessions are more productive, as I know exactly what my students are having trouble with.
On their own time, our 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, our 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.
“Your method of preparing for the GRE has been by far the best method I have encountered to succeed in this exam. If I were to take any other standardized examinations in the future, 21st Night would be the first tool I reached out for.”
