Private Study Skills Tutor
Dear Parent —
In 1999 we launched StudyPoint with a singular focus: to help students learn the basic study and organizational skills they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive academic environment.
To a degree unlike any previous generation, your child is expected to be a professional student — capable of learning large volumes of information; capable of performing flawlessly on high stakes exams; and capable of managing a calendar of extra-curricular activities and school deadlines that would make a professional administrative assistant tremble.
In short, the college admissions process and other factors have turned being a high school student into a job — and yet 99% of high schoolers have never received even the most basic training on how to be an effective student. Your child may well spend 16-20 years in school and never learn how to take effective notes, prepare for an important exam, or manage a busy schedule. Imagine if a company hired an employee, and in the span of nearly two decades never provided that employee a single day of training on how to do his or her daily responsibilities... It's a laughable proposition, and yet it is likely what your child is experiencing right now.
Our Transitions program is on the job training for students taking the critical step to high school. Developed with feedback from students, parents, teachers, and guidance counselors, it is designed to help your child better manage the increased academic expectations of secondary school. It's a fantastic program that we think should be mandatory for every 8th or 9th grader.
