Study Skills and Writing

Study Skills

Study skills are essential for every learner; however, they look different for each student.  We offer a two-hour study skills program, broken down into two sessions.  

  • In the first hour session, we focus on the student’s area of need: test taking skills, test preparation skills, organization, daily work, self advocacy… Together, we design a program to help the student succeed based on the latest brain research and “tried and true” methods: AVID strategies (time proven strategies that focus on retention of learning), All Kinds of Minds (brain research) and EPIC  strategies (research backed motivation and study skills).  

  • Two weeks later, we meet for the second hour to see how the new program is working and to modify it as necessary.  Then, we are available for weekly, monthly, and as needed check-ins to ensure success.

Writing 

Another new program we offer is helping students to write college entrance or other essays. A good essay can be what makes a student stand out in a crowd. The charge for this is $95/hour. If it is necessary for the student to send one of our tutors their essay to look at online after working together, that is an additional $20. Please email Jill or Lauren to make an appointment for Writing services.
