It's never too early to develop strong study habits. With our Study Skills program in Shawnee you can help your son or daughter learn how to take on every academic challenge with ease, from elementary school to college and beyond. If your child is starting to fall behind or is looking for ways to get ahead, our tutors can provide valuable study tips that will encourage growth.

Better Strategies for Studying Smart

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)

Each and every child has unique learning needs, which means there are multiple ways to instill practical academic behaviors and effective, life-long study skills. Luckily, our Personalized Tutoring programs take that into consideration. Special attention will be paid to the following skill sets:

  • Effective note taking: Aids like color coding and flash cards can help make studying more effective.
  • Research best practices: From evaluating sources to writing a proper bibliography.
  • Time management: Organizing and prioritizing are the keys to efficient study habits.
  • Mastering the writing process: With practice, your child will learn how to become a stronger writer.
  • Active reading: Better comprehension skills will improve your child's scores across all subjects.
  • Online safety: How to choose reliable sources and share digital information responsibly.
