Smart Study Techniques

When kids and teens face growing demands kids at school, it's critical to have well-developed study habits. With a combination of instruction, independent practice and plenty of opportunities to put developing skills to the test, we can ensure habits become a way of life!

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Since no two children are exactly alike, the best approach for encouraging smart study habits and reinforcing positive attitudes and behaviors won’t be the same across the board. Luckily, our Personalized Tutoring programs take that into consideration.

  • Active reading: Better comprehension is an important asset in any subject area.
  • Effective note taking strategies: Using tools to make study time more productive, including flash cards and color coding.
  • Time management: Higher scores are possible when your child learns how to organize and prioritize his or her workload.
  • Research skills: Including how to evaluate sources and write a bibliography.
  • Mastering the writing process: Our students are taught to be effective, engaging communicators.
  • Online safety: Including learning how to find and assess digital informational, and share it in a responsible fashion.
