Tips for Studying Smart

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)

  • 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.
