When parents call us for a math tutor or reading tutor, they often comment that their child's main problem is with organization and focus. This becomes particularly apparent as children move from the nurturing environment of elementary school to middle school, when all of a sudden the child has to manage multiple teachers, each with their own teaching styles and homework expectations.
To address this need, In-Home Tutors is pleased to offer Study Smarter! -- a 5-week Study Skills program, designed for fourth graders and older. This program, consisting of five weekly 60- to 90-minute sessions, covers all the essentials, including time management, organization, note-taking, memorization techniques, Internet research tips and test-taking strategies.
Because all tutoring is one-on-one, our tutors will adapt the program to the age of the child. Students of all ages run into barriers because of poor study habits. We can help your high schooler, middle schooler or elementary school child.
Study Smarter! is currently offered one-on-one in your home and, occasionally, in a small workgroup environment. The total cost of the workshop is $279 (for one-on-one instruction), which includes a book-- Helping Kids Get Organized for fourth through sixth graders, Study Strategies Made Easy for older students-- as well as a binder full of helpful handouts.
