Study Smart from Day One

The evolving demands facing kids and teens at school require well-developed study habits. 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)

There's no such thing as a "one-size-fits-all" way to instill positive academic behavior and instill life-long study skills — after all, every child has unique needs. That’s where our Personalized Tutoring program can make a difference. Special attention will be paid to the following skill sets:

  • Time management: Your child will learn how to organize and prioritize, developing more efficient study skills along the way.
  • Active reading strategies: Developing better comprehension skills will help your child across all subjects.
  • Effective note taking strategies: Using tools like flash cards and color coding can make studying more effective.
  • Research skills: Focusing on a particular subject including evaluating sources and writing a bibliography.
  • Mastering the writing process: With practice, your child will become a stronger, more engaging writer.
  • Online safety: Including learning how to locate, evaluate and share digital informational 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. Our tutors know exactly how to motivate your teen to study hard and strive to meet — and exceed — expectations. With Advancement & Test Prep, your teen will:

  • Sharpen the right skills: You decide the skill areas to focus on — such as note-taking or presentation skills — so we're concentrating on the areas most relevant to your teen.
  • Apply the skills in the real world: Out students enjoy plenty of opportunities to apply their new strategies to projects and big tests.
  • Gain more confidence: We encourage positive behaviors and attitudes to help teens gain the confidence to persevere and meet big expectations.
  • Develop skills for the future: It's understandable — you want to see your teen succeed through college and beyond. We can help him or her work on public speaking, goal setting and even job interview preparation.
