Developing strong study habits early on is essential if you want your child to succeed. The goal of our Study Skills programs in Catonsville 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

For kids and teens facing growing demands in the classroom, developing good study habits is essential. We ensure that good habits become second nature by combining personal instruction with independent practice—and plentiful opportunities to put developing skills to the test!

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.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

Our expert tutors know that teaching your teen things like smart study habits, good time management, how to set goals, digital literacy and strong research and writing skills are essential for success well into adulthood. We inspire ambitious students to study smarter and reach their potential in all subjects. With Advancement & Test Prep, your teen will:

  • Focus on the most relevant areas: You choose the skill areas — such as time management or presentation skills — so we can focus on them and make the biggest difference.
  • Apply new skills in the real world: We give students lots of opportunities to apply their new knowledge and techniques to actual schoolwork. This encourages the development of lifelong habits.
  • Be more confident when tackling new challenges: We foster positive behaviors so your teen can feel good about overcoming big academic challenges.
  • Develop future-ready skills: We help teens achieve more in the here and now, but also prepare them to succeed long-term. That can include public speaking, goal setting and even job interview preparation.
