Get Smart About Studying

Combining both instruction and independent learning, we help ensure smart study skills become deep-rooted habits. These are fundamental habits that children can take with them long after they graduate!

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Each child is different. This is why we never take a one-size-fits-all approach to learning, especially when certain behaviors and attitudes can have a big impact on every subject. You can feel good knowing our Personalized Tutoring program zeros in on your child’s unique needs. Here are a few of the skill sets we teach:

  • Active reading techniques: Reading comprehension skills play a key role in all school subjects.
  • Conquering the writing process: We can help students become more skilled and proficient writers.
  • Helpful strategies for taking notes: Get smart about study time with practical and effective techniques like color-coding and flash cards.
  • Time management skills: Sometimes knowing where to begin is the hardest part. We’ll help your child learn how to successfully organize and prioritize a heavy workload.
  • Research strategies: We take a deep dive into specific subjects and look at the best ways to write bibliographies and evaluate sources.
  • Internet safety: We help kids learn how to use the internet safely and effectively, including finding, evaluating and sharing digital information in a responsible manner.
