Study Smarter!

Combining both instruction and independent learning, we help ensure smart study skills become deep-rooted habits. After all, kids and teens need these habits in school — and long after they graduate!

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. Fortunately, our Personalized Tutoring program accounts for every young learner's specific needs. You can expect your child to be equipped with a skill set that includes:

  • Active reading strategies: Boosted reading skills means better comprehension in all subject areas.
  • Honing the writing process: We can help students better express themselves through writing and become more skilled communicators.
  • Note-taking techniques: Get the most out of study time with effective strategies like flash cards, color-coding and more.
  • Time management: Challenging workloads can sometimes be overwhelming. We can help your child better organize and prioritize for more efficiency (and less stress!) come homework time.
  • Research skills: By focusing on specific subjects, we explore the most effective ways to assess sources and put together bibliographies.
  • Cyber safety: We can help kids learn how to find, assess and share digital information in a safe and responsible manner.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

From study habits to goal setting, digital literacy and advanced research skills, we empower teens to develop talents that are applicable well into adulthood. Our tutors know how to motivate and inspire students to reach their goals and get the best possible results. Features of our Advancement & Test Prep program include:

  • Gain confidence: By encouraging and reinforcing positive behaviors, we can help your teen feel more confident, more motivated and more prepared to take on big tasks.
  • Prepare for the future: We can help your teen get a head start on adult responsibilities by working on advanced strategies in goal setting, public speaking, job interview preparation and more.
