Study & Executive Functioning Skills Coaching
A letter from our ceo.
Dear Parent - In the 1990's 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. Today those skills are collectively referred to as "Executive Functioning Skills," and they're more important than ever. To a degree unlike that of 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 study and executive functioning skills 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 8 th or 9 th grader. If you think your son or daughter might benefit from organizational and study skills tutoring, please keep reading the information below to learn more about our unique approach to study skills instruction.

A note on covid-19:.
Dear Parent - the last year has presented challenges on so many fronts, and perhaps nowhere more so than at school. For a generation of kids who already feel more pressure than any before them, the pandemic has thrown everything into disarray - and in doing so has dramatically increased the anxiety around school and college admissions.
Against this backdrop, the most important thing for you to know about StudyPoint is that we're a national leader in both online and in-home tutoring. We've been doing in-home tutoring since the 1990's, and began offering online tutoring a decade ago. In total we've completed more than 650,000 hours of in-home tutoring and over 500,000 hours of one-to-one, online instruction.
In most locations, if your family is ready to move back to face to face instruction, we have fully vaccinated tutors who are able to meet with your child in the convenience of your home. If you prefer online, we have a great team of instructors who can meet with your child in our custom virtual classroom that was purpose-built for live, online tutoring. We've invested heavily in custom technology to make online instruction more effective, and in a typical year more than half of our programs are online.
And keep in mind that through years of collecting data we have found that our in-home and online student outcomes are basically identical. Whichever format is the best fit for your family right now, you can have the peace of mind that your child is working with a national leader.
We're your partner in navigating these challenging times and ensuring that your child feels like things are under control. We're here to help, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you need it.

One-to-One, Private Study Skills Tutoring
In class the teacher needs to keep moving whether your child understands the concept or not. Your study skills tutor will work at your child's pace and will review material until it's clear that he or she has mastered the concept.
Our focus is developing your child's study skills so he or she can apply those skills to current school work. The tutor's key responsibility is to provide your child with the neccessary tools to prepare for and succeed on important exams, papers, and projects throughout his or her academic career.
Our goal is to help your child earn a stronger grade through better study skills, but equally important, our study skills tutoring will help your child take ownership of his or her learning and become a more successful, independent student.
An Expert Team of Carefully Selected Study Skills Tutors
Subject Specific Expertise
Our experienced study skills tutors have degrees (and often advanced degrees) from some of the country’s best colleges and universities.
Extensive Teaching/ Tutoring Experience
They’re experienced, passionate teachers, and they know how to engage students and break down difficult concepts.
Thoughtful, Flexible Teaching Styles
Being smart isn't enough—our tutors are able to listen well and communicate clearly, and they adapt their approach to fit your child.
You (and your family) are busy
To be effective, an educational program has to work with your family's schedule. We make life easier by bringing the tutoring to you through two convenient options:
In home study skills tutoring
Our flagship program, which we launched in the late 1990's, our in-home tutoring option provides you with the unparalleled convenience and personalized attention of a private tutor who will work with your child right at your kitchen table. All lessons are one-to-one, and your instructor will ensure that each session is highly focused on your child’s unique needs.
Online study skills Tutoring
Instead of meeting at the kitchen table your child and the tutor meet in a custom online learning environment. This innovative tool enables them to talk through strategies and complete practice problems, just as they would on a workbook at your kitchen table. Online tutoring replicates the in-person tutoring dynamic, and it’s remarkably effective.
Happy, Successful Students
Students spend 50% of their waking hours at school or doing homework and something that occupies such a large amount of time inevitably plays a big role in their happiness. School is tough—there are social, emotional, and academic challenges.
Ultimately, the end goal of a StudyPoint tutoring program is improved performance in school, and that improvement is easily measurable—an A on quiz, an outstanding test, or a grade worthy of the refrigerator door. We believe the best measure of your child’s understanding and progress is the grade on his or her report card, and that is how we measure our success with clients.
Yet there is an added benefit—something that is difficult to measure but easy to recognize. It is the sense of accomplishment that comes from working to improve something and seeing positive results. Few smiles are as big as the ones that company a strong report card.
Our greatest reward is the positive feedback we get from parents who report their children are now confident and happy in school as a result of our study skills tutoring.
40,000 success stories. Start your story today.
"We were extremely pleased - with the communication, the flexibility, and really working with us to get results in a tight time period."

"I can't say enough about the impressive results our son achieved in raising his ACT scores as a result of working with StudyPoint. The Program Manager and our tutor were both highly professional and genuinely interested in our son's success throughout the process."

Without the proper skills, approaching a task — any task — can be confusing and frustrating and rarely leads to the desired result.

That’s why Oxford Learning® builds study skills into every program — to help students learn to study using a systematic, organized approach so that they know where to start, what to study, and when they are test-ready!

Studying isn’t about memorizing. instead, proper studying is about deepening comprehension. when materials are understood, students don’t have to rely on their memories, which means more confidence when writing tests, and better test scores. oxford learning®’s study skills programs help students develop stronger study skills, including:.

Is Your Focus on Tutoring?
Quit your day job.
Everyone wants a piece of you. You, Subject Matter Expert, you! You, Experienced Educator, you! You have a fan base spanning into the hundreds. You’re widely sought after. In demand. You set the price.
You, my friend, are a ROCKSTAR!
Everyone wants a piece of you!
Wake up from your dream. You’ll get there soon!
You have some work to get started. That’s what brought you here, right? You’ve been digging around the internet for information on starting your own tutoring business. You’ve been looking for ways to make your existing methods and practices more effective and gratifying.
You have a love and passion for students and you want to see them succeed! You also have some expertise which you’d like to market.
There’s no question that tutoring is right for you!
But You’re Wondering, “Where Do I Start?!”
- “How do I get my first client?”
- “How do I get more clients?”
- “How much should I charge?”
- “How do I effectively help students?”
- “What do I tutor?”
- “How do I know what to cover?”
- “How do I communicate plans and progress with parents?”
Let’s begin with the most important part – how to start and grow your business.
Build Your “Rockstar” Status
If you’re a subject-matter expert, it’s easy to address specific problems in a subject area – such as geometry or chemistry. But what about the students who struggle in multiple subjects? Who are disorganized? Suffer from test anxiety? Who hate school, in general?
Most parents don’t know where to turn. They are searching for answers.
Wouldn’t it be great if they could turn to you, you Rockstar Tutor!
Tutoring Is BIG Business!
According to FranchiseHelp.com, there are an estimated 74 million K-12 students in 2015. And, the global private tutoring market is projected to surpass $102.8 billion by 2018, according to a market-research study published by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (GIA). Tutoring is an industry that is highly in demand and growing!
To differentiate yourself from your competitors, you can equip yourself with a fundamental set of skills. You will attract clients, and transform your students’ lives! These skills will be your sought-after secret and your students’ VIP backstage pass towards educational achievement!
More enticing, these skills provide almost immediate success. Because they are SO fundamental, they are easy to teach and applicable to every one of your students! Whether they are struggling in just one subject area, or many.
Shout-Out For 80/20!
Have you heard of the 80/20 Principle? 80/20 is simple, universal rule that governs our lives. This philosophy states that roughly 20% of our actions produce 80% of our results, or 80% of effects comes from 20% of causes.
For decades educators and psychologists noticed a common 80/20 pattern in traditional classrooms:
- 80% of students pass classes with “normal instruction.”
- Of the remaining 20% who do not pass, 80% will pass with additional assistance. Which means 20% will still struggle.
- Of those remaining 20% that continued to struggle, 80% will finally understand the information with alternative instruction.
- But, 20% will still struggle…. and the pattern continues.
Study Skills are the 80/20 in education, the 20% that has 80% of the impact. You can deliver the solution that so many parents are desperately seeking.
Tough Times Call For Tough Measures
Parents have tried everything and they need you now. You’re a Rockstar! Their children just aren’t getting it. Parents are frustrated and desperate to improve their students’ grades. Now, they’ve come to you for help. And they need you to lead them to success.
Don’t be intimated by the big-box tutoring establishments. You can accomplish more in less time, and be more valuable to the students and families you serve.
Most tutors and tutoring curriculum only put Band-Aids ® on issues, targeting symptoms of one problem, in one subject-area.
Study skills cover the big picture… and represent a major gap in the tutoring industry.
Get In The Spotlight!
What if you were in such demand that you have groupies camping out, waiting for you? Okay, that’s probably not going to happen. But there is a different way that you could reach your groupies – er, students – and teach them a better way. This unique approach would ensure their success and drive your business.
This new way is a proven and reliable system that will allow you to guarantee results. This different, better system will increase your effectiveness. It will reach the students and make them more confident. And the parents will be happy to pay you because your way is making everything golden.
“I was getting C’s and D’s. Now I am getting A’s and B’s! I learned how to be organized and how to study…it has made such a difference!” -Katie H., 11th Grade Student
A Tutoring Curriculum Done For You!
SOAR ® Study Skills Tutoring Curriculum is your secret solution that will give you that number #1 hit, that platinum status. They provide an advantage over your competition; study skills are almost totally ignored in schools. The big box tutoring franchises claim they offer study skills, but their skills are “bulky,” very time-consuming and confusing for students.
How SOAR ® Stays “Student-Friendly”
All SOAR ® strategies must meet our strict, “student-friendly” criteria. All strategies must:
- Be effective… obviously! All of our strategies are aligned to the natural workings of the human brain.
- Be efficient! Students won’t bother with strategies that take a long time to implement; that works against the brain. Since our strategies are aligned to the natural circuitry of the brain, our strategies are as humanly simple as possible… literally!
- Apply across content-areas. If you go to the Big Box tutoring franchises or research study skills on the internet, you’ll find millions of tips and strategies. But, the vast majority are specific to one type of assignment or learning situation. Students can’t possibly determine when to use these strategies. When strategies are so specific, the only way students can discern the best one to use is if they understand the content very well. But if they understood the content that well, they wouldn’t need the learning strategy. So… that’s a problem! We solve this problem by presenting only basic learning and organizing strategies that apply across content areas.
SOAR ® also sticks to the most fundamental skill areas that determine success. Topics covered include how to:
- Get organized. How to organize school papers, backpacks, lockers, and even a helpful chapter for easily organizing the bedroom.
- Manage time.
- Determine priorities and plan accordingly.
- “Think forward.”
- Work with teachers.
- Read a textbook … in half the time with double the comprehension.
- Write papers quickly and with ease.
- Take notes effectively.
- Study for tests , without any anxiety.
- Take tests with confidence.
“Everything is practical and easy to do. Great tips! My son set up a SOAR ® Binder and it is working for him!” -Janet C., Elementary and Middle School Parent “Kurt is more focused about his time management. The jar of priorities made a big impact on how he uses him time on a daily basis.” -Lachele M., Middle School Parent

Why You Need a Study Skills Tutor
Every student has different needs when it comes to studying. Some parents are focused on ensuring that their child is consistently earning good grades, while others may be focused on organization, note taking, and strategies for getting ahead in school. As your child moves through one grade after the next, workloads increase and homework, quizzes, as well as tests, get much harder. The expectations of our young students have grown to new all-time highs and the pressure keeps piling on. A one-on-one study skills tutor can help your child become more independent with their studying while being able to better manage time and balance responsibilities.
Studying is something that absolutely has to be learned. We are not just born with knowledge of these study skills inside of us. You have to be around individuals who have these types of skills in order to ever pick them up in the first place. So if you have a child who is in school and studying is becoming increasingly important yet challenging for them, you know “I need a study skills tutor.” Teachers may not be able to help your child develop these types of skills or they just do not have the best study skills themselves. When you find a study skills tutor you will work with someone who is a professional and knows what it takes to develop your child’s ability to study well. Your child will be working with a tutor who is college educated, which means they have studied for and passed tests on the highest level. These skills will be easily transferable to your child and their needs, and they will be able to be used until your child gets their college degree. Working with study skills tutoring will truly help them achieve academic success.
As mentioned, study skills are not just natural for all of us. If you never went to college and struggled in high school but now currently need to take a test for a job, you understand how frustrating it can be to aimlessly study. “Study skills tutoring near me” is something you have probably begun searching for so that you can get the help you need. Our professional tutors will be able to make sure you organize all of your notes and study materials into something that is more digestible. No matter what you are studying for, it can feel overwhelming. Taking in all of this information and then being able to take a test can leave you feeling depleted. In order to eliminate this worry, you need to work with a one-on-one study skills tutor. You will learn all types of study skills which can be used toward you getting the grade you know you deserve. Hard work and dedication are what it is going to take to reach your goals and that is also what you will get from our tutors. If you put in the time toward learning these skills like they will make sure you are learning, you will achieve things you never thought were possible.
If you are in college and having problems with your studies this can truly feel like a hindrance. If studying is difficult it might feel like college just is not for you as it is at the core of every single class that you will take. However there is no need to get hasty, what you need to do is find a private study skills tutor. This way you can get tools that will work in all of your classes and have the confidence you need to know that you are studying in the right way. It may be hard to believe, but there is such a thing as good studying and bad studying. If you just read the textbook you are not going to put yourself in position to pass. It is rare that a class covers an entire textbook, what happens is the professor picks and chooses what they go over in lectures. So if you just read it in its entirety you will be wasting your time. Your mind will be crammed with unnecessary materials and when you start the test you will be lost or confused. Getting this type of individual help will work with you at your own pace. The consistency of working with a professional tutor who can fine-tune your study skills is invaluable.

Benefits of Hiring a Study Skills Tutor
Having a reputable study skills tutor means that your child will be prepared for any type of test or quiz that is coming up. Study skills tutoring gives your child a major advantage to approaching test taking with a newfound knowledge of helpful strategies and tools. Improving a child’s study habits helps to improve grades, and ultimately leads to a jump in confidence, it’s a win-win situation. With a simple search of "study skills tutor near me," we ensure that you will have a tutor that provides a lifetime of great study habits early on which will continue to have a positive impact in school for years to come.
Transitions are always challenging, but especially when you go from middle school to high school. Your child might not have had to study all that much while in middle school, or when they did it was the bare minimum. This was good enough for them to get the grades that they wanted to skate by, but in high school that is not going to be the case. Classes are not as easy and the workload increases almost tenfold. When this happens your child might find that they are in over their head and do not have the study skills that are needed to find success. High school is important toward getting into college and if your child’s grades are slipping away this could hurt them in the long run. So your child needs the assistance of a private study skills tutor who can help them build on the skills that they will use for the remainder of their studies.
The best thing about test preparation tutoring that it does not matter what grade level is or what your struggles are as a student. They will be able to help guide you toward being the success you know you are capable of becoming. However, you just are not getting the personalized attention that you need to create necessary study skills. Although we learn several things while in school, it is rare that there are any courses or classes entirely dedicated to your success as a student through studying. To build upon these skills you are going to have to work with someone who is going to be committed to your success. They are going to create a curriculum that is based on exactly what you are looking for so you are able to reach all of your goals. There is no reason why you will not be able to study in a way that is beneficial to you if you follow the instructions and do the work assigned by your tutor. This is because what your tutor is giving you is designed to make sure that you succeed.
Since study skills are not something that is typically offered as a class, as a teacher you might notice a trend with your students. If you are teaching and you start to notice that your class has bad study habits you might be interested in working with a study skills tutor. They will be able to teach you study skills that you wish you would have known while you are in school. But not only will they be able to teach you these skills but they will inform you on how to teach them to your students. This way both you and your students are getting the most out of these sessions. With that being said, in order for this to happen our professional tutors really prioritize two things. They want your student to have fun but also they want them to be comfortable. When these two things happen your child is being set up to learn in the best possible situation. Learning should not be something that is hard or causes a ton of frustration. When this is happening you as a parent need to take a step back and reevaluate the learning style your child is being exposed to. This is exactly what you will be doing when you step away from the typical classroom setting and work with a one-on-one tutor. Your student will start to enjoy themselves and really become the best possible student. Studying is going to be something that they are absolutely going to have to do, so they might as well find a way that makes sense to them and is a good time. Our tutors understand this and are committed to making it happen for your student.
HeyTutor offers study skills tutoring for elementary aged children all the way up to college! Even if your child is an excellent student our tutors work with each and every one of their scholars to build a strong foundation of self-assurance while maximizing grade averages. Let our team of experts take the reins and find the best study skills tutor for you or your child today.

Coaching vs Tutoring?
Does my child need better study skills or tutoring?
“When would I want an Executive Function / Study Skills Coach vs. tutoring?”
This is a good question, and an important one.
Some Background: The Executive Function Gap
Over the last 10 – 15 years, schools have gotten more and more competitive. The curriculum has ramped with increasingly rigorous “content”. Foreign language is being taught earlier, math “paths” have gotten more aggressive, more Honors and AP classes are “required” to get in to the most competitive colleges. And while, students may be intellectually prepared for this content, their executive function (aka “organizational readiness”) is often not prepared to manage this load.
Who taught our kids how to study?
As more and more “content” was pushed in to the curriculum, the time previously devoted to teaching students “how to study” was pushed out. Very little time is devoted to teaching our students how to break down their homework into manageable “chunks”, how to properly take notes, make a study guide, or how to prioritize which work is most important to do and when. As a result, many students hit an organizational “wall” at a certain point of intellectual challenge, regardless of how smart they are or how well they have done in the past.
So while schools ramped up the curriculum, they didn’t consider that students’ frontal lobe development may not be ready for managing that workload. Once they realized that there was a problem, they never added study skills back in to the curriculum. What we see as a result are students struggling with “process” (across their subjects) vs. “content” (aka need for specific subject-matter support).
Ever had a bad manager?
The analogy is very similar to a newly appointed manager in a job. While they may have “mastered” their sales, accounting or engineering skills, they may not have learned the managerial skills to manage a broader set of people or to plan and manage projects. They may not need a “tutor” for their day job, but instead, they can benefit from a “coach” to learn the tools and strategies for how to manage the newer aspects of their work.
Consider these three questions when determining if your child would benefit most from coaching or tutoring.
1. Is your child challenged in one particular subject or across several subjects? Students who are having challenges grasping a new math or science concept, or need additional help in a foreign language present a different challenge than one who has difficulty planning, managing, and/or completing work across many subjects.
If your child is showing signs of stress due to:
- an inability to break work down in to smaller pieces to make it more manageable,
- planning and effectively managing their workload,
- understanding how long a project will take, and/or
- communicating, retaining or retrieving information,
they will need to learn skills and approaches around the PROCESS of learning vs. the CONTENT in one particular subject.
2. Does your child need to learn to become a more independent learner? The goal of an Executive Function coach is to help a student take charge of their own learning. We call it “learned independence.” The goal is to move the conversation from “How can I help you?” to “What do you need from me to help you on YOUR plan?” We focus on providing the skills that transform a student into a more effective, independent, and motivated learner and to transfer the responsibility of that success from the parent (or tutor) to the student.
3. Is your child undergoing a significant transition? Whether transitioning to a new school, a new grade, or now taking honors or AP classes, when curriculum gets more challenging and schools are demanding higher performance, students gain confidence through learning new strategies for managing their work. Strong Executive Function and study skills are the key to consistent academic achievement and will allow students to carry that heavier load.
A strong “study skills” foundation gives students an edge by teaching them how to best:
Organize thoughts and materials
Plan and prioritize work
Stay on track
Remember what to do and do it
Problem solve, and
Learn from mistakes
Many students graduate from our our 5-day program and are fully prepared to take on the demands of their academic workload with no additional coaching required. We think that is great!
Others, may want or need more “practice” with these skills. In our “Coached” Homework Center:
- We use student’s current academic assignments – be it a research paper, a test, or a project – to practice the skills that they have learned.
- We help students establish new, positive habits that put them in charge of managing and completing their work.
- We help them learn to advocate for their own academic success.
For those who desire more individualized help, we provide 1:1 Coaching in conjunction with our Homework Center.

What Does a Study Skills Tutor Do?
Study skills and executive function coaching utilizes educational psychology and practical skill development to help students become better learners..
Someone asked me recently what subjects I tutor, and I ran through a list of familiar ones before mentioning something called “study skills.” He looked puzzled and asked the obvious question, “What is study skills tutoring?” In short, I told him, it’s learning how to learn.
His response was indicative of both the value of study skills and a common misconception many of us have about what academic success looks like: “I didn’t realize when I was in school that, essentially, that’s what I was doing—learning how to learn. I wish I had realized that earlier!” The misconception is to think that school is all about content. Classes can be taught this way, as if you actually need to know bivariate calculus or the impact of the War of 1812 on mercantilism for your future life. Of course, many facts are worth learning, but a much more foundational, lifelong skill you should be developing is simply knowing how to succeed as a student of anything.
HOW WE DEVELOP STUDY SKILLS
In our proprietary study skills program, we look at four foundational pillars of study skills:
working smarter; and
Students can work at any one of these areas independently, but real growth comes from cumulative, sustained development in each area, starting with a good foundation (more on that below). Throughout the curriculum, we focus holistically on both the practical skills needed to be a successful learner and the deeper, underlying psychology that shapes how we approach learning. We also take advantage of the latest research in brain science, executive functioning, and educational psychology to develop reliable, expert advice. In study skills tutoring, we help students develop study skills by presenting them with sound research, reflecting on their existing attitudes and habits, modeling best practices, and providing tools to make lasting, impactful change.
As a preview of the kind of work that goes on in study skills tutoring, I’ll highlight a couple skills you could start developing right now .
One of the most important skills a middle schooler or high schooler can develop is regularly setting their own goals. Because so much of secondary school has built-in structure, students sometimes miss this opportunity, but setting your own goals gives you a sense of ownership a prescribed task rarely does. Goals also present a way to organize your time: if you want to get an A on an upcoming Chemistry exam, you need to chart out the steps that will lead you there. Once you identify these steps, schedule them into your week. We encourage students to set goals that have a concrete “what, when, and how,” which makes working towards a goal and measuring its success easier and much more effective.
Setting goals is a big-picture practice. What about something more concrete? Let’s talk about taking effective notes. The primary value of learning to take good notes—or any notes at all—isn’t where most students think it lies. Many of us think notes are for referencing later on. We need to look up a piece of information, and unless it’s in our notes, we won’t know it. This is half true at best.
The value of taking notes has more to do with active learning and engagement. Taking hand-written notes, in particular, leads to better comprehension and long term memory retention. How? When you take notes, you have to decide what information is important, since it’s impossible to transcribe everything. Deciding what’s important means you have to be critically engaged with the material. This also means that typing notes tends to be less useful, as most of us are too good at typing, so we mindlessly record as much as possible.
Similarly, merely listening to a teacher or reading a presenter’s detailed slides is fundamentally passive and thus an inefficient and ineffective to truly learn.
Working with a private tutor can help you shape these practices to suit your own circumstances and needs, as few of us are able to achieve meaningful changes in our habits without experienced guidance and encouragement. Get in touch to learn how an expert study skills coach can support your student’s academic success. Ultimately, what we seek to develop is confident, self-sufficient learners that are experts at learning, no matter the subject.

Private Study Skills Tutoring
Receive personally tailored Study Skills lessons from exceptional tutors in a one-on-one setting. We help you connect with the best tutor for your particular needs while offering flexible scheduling to fit your busy life.
A personal study skills tutor can be an essential asset for your continued academic success. You may be a parent with a young child who cannot focus on his or her school work, a college undergraduate looking for advice on how to undertake the rigors of post-secondary education, or a non-traditional student seeking help to develop a program of study in the midst of a hectic life. Varsity Tutors is familiar with many of the options available.
Many times, problems in particular courses are caused by poor utilization of time and resources. Whether this is due to an improper study technique or merely because you are not working on the material for an appropriate amount of time, each case is unique and often difficult to assess. Therefore, you can greatly benefit from help in assessing your current studying habits and crafting an improved set of practices for academic success.
It also helps to know what effective study habits are. In fact, they can vary based on the subject you are studying, and there are many subjects as you move up the academic ladder. As your scholastic environment changes, the demands only grow, and studying can become even more of a challenge with the stress. You might need different strategies for different subjects. The critical thinking skills, for example, are different for math than they are for history or English. It might also be necessary to accommodate your individual learning style, which may vary from one subject to another. As you move on to more advanced topics such as chemistry or psychology, engineering or computer science, a private tutor can be invaluable in helping you find the right study strategies.
But what are good study skills? That's a question many people ask. The process involves much more than just reading a textbook and memorizing information. A whole set of skills go toward proper studying. Listening and taking notes during lessons are important skills. So is reading comprehension, but you also need individual skills such as time management, stress management, and the understanding of how to approach taking a test, in order for your study efforts to be worthwhile. A tutor might provide you with tips for better memorization, or even alternative ways to take notes. Oftentimes the way you learn in class contributes to better retention, so you learn the material while studying, and spend less time later on trying to internalize all the information.
Private tutoring can help you identify and correct your general and specific study regimens. Helping you to set concrete goals, your tutor can discuss your short-term and long-term aspirations, as well as the current constraints that limit your ability to execute those goals. Based upon this evaluation, your tutor can assist you in creating a disciplined, but appropriately flexible, schedule for your studies. With these parameters in place, your tutor can help you continually improve your general study skills, allowing you to craft a more disciplined academic persona for the years ahead.
Study skills tutoring is particularly useful when a student is changing learning environments. When a student passes from middle school to high school or from high school to college, things can really change for them. At these important transition times, the increased difficulty and independence of studies can create an overwhelming experience, even for the best of students. Do not let such important transitions happen without guidance. Find an able tutor to tackle such transitions with as little disturbance as possible.
With such convenient help available, why hesitate? Contact us today to discuss the options available in your area or online face-to-face tutoring. No matter your study skills needs, we can help you find individualized help available just for you!
