Developing strong study habits early on is essential if you want your child to succeed. The goal of our Study Skills programs in Chicago is to provide your son or daughter with the tools that will help them tackle growing workloads starting in elementary school all the way to college and beyond. If you’ve noticed your child is falling behind or he or she could use some guidance to get ahead, our tutors are available to provide study tips that will ensure progress.

Study Smart from Day One

The changing demands kids and teens face at school call for a foundation of strong study skills. By combining independent activities with personal instruction — and lots of chances to practice new skills — we ensure that good study habits quickly become second nature.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

When every child has specific needs, instilling positive attitudes and study habits can’t be a matter of one size fits all. That’s where our Personalized Tutoring programs can be of assistance. A wide range of skills are covered, including:

  • Research skills: Finding and evaluating relevant sources, and writing an accurate bibliography.
  • Effective note taking strategies: From color coding to flash cards, study aids can help material stick.
  • Active reading skills: Better reading comprehension will be valuable to your child in every subject.
  • Time management: Supplement strong study habits with good prioritization and organizational skills.
  • Master the writing process: Encourage your child to become a stronger, more effective writer.
  • Online safety: Tips for locating and evaluate relevant sources as well as how to share digital information responsibly.
