Smart Study Strategies

Combining both instruction and independent learning, we help ensure smart study skills become deep-rooted habits. These are life-long habits kids and teens can carry with them long after graduation!

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Every child is unique. That means there's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution for their education, especially when it comes to behaviors and attitudes that affect performance in every subject. Rest assured our Personalized Tutoring program caters to your son or daughter’s particular needs. Here are just some of the skill sets we focus on:

  • Techniques for active reading: Strengthened comprehension skills means better understanding in all classes.
  • Key writing competencies: We can help students communicate more clearly through writing.
  • Smart note-taking strategies: We can help make study time as productive as possible through practical techniques like flash cards and color-coding.
  • Time management: As with any challenging workload, it can be overwhelming knowing where to start. We’ll help your child learn how to effectively organize and prioritize homework.
  • Research skills: We take a look at specific subjects and explore the ideal ways to evaluate sources and prepare bibliographies.
  • Cyber safety: We can help your budding learner find, evaluate and share digital information in a safe and responsible manner.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

From setting goals and reinforcing study habits to developing advanced research skills, we help teens strengthen key competencies that will serve them well into their adult years. Our tutors inspire ambitious students to study smarter, work harder and reach their full potential. Features of our Advancement & Test Prep program include:

  • Sharpen the right skills: This is a modular program. You get to decide which areas we focus on, ensuring we attend to your teen's most important needs.
  • Develop lifelong skills: Our students enjoy plenty of opportunities to apply their new strategies. This reinforces concepts and turns good habits into lifelong assets.
  • Feel more confident: We know how to foster positive behaviors, resulting in confident teens that prepare, persevere and meet big expectations.
