Better Strategies for Studying Smart

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

The right approach for instilling positive attitudes towards studying and smart study habits depends on each child’s unique needs. Luckily, our Personalized Tutoring programs take that into consideration. Special attention will be paid to the following skill sets:

  • Reading comprehension: Active reading is a useful skill across all subjects
  • Time management: Better prioritization and organization skills can add to study skills.
  • Research skills: How to focus on a single subject, judge sources and write a proper bibliography.
  • Note taking tips: Using color coding and flash cards as aids can help make study time more effective.
  • Mastering writing skills: With practice, your child will understand the writing process and how to use it effectively.
  • Online safety: How to locate, evaluate and responsibly share digital information.
