Taking academically rigorous high school classes and performing well in those college preparatory courses are ranked by many colleges as the most important components of a student’s application. To that end, we support our students by offering both broad and subject-specific academic coaching. We strive to be more than tutors who are concerned only with grades: students often achieve their greatest successes when they understand HOW and WHY they learn! We challenge our students to reflect on their academic experiences with curiosity and develop their own individual knowledge, tools, and techniques that will guide them into college and beyond. This transcends day-to-day lessons and can include guidance on how to communicate with teachers, recover from a poor start in a class, form a productive study group, and plan ahead for upcoming exams.
