Academic tutoring, even more so than standardized test preparation, is driven by the student. Before beginning a study skills academic tutoring program, our instructors will try to find out:

What are your student's current study habits? Which study habits are (or are not) serving your student? 
Which classes or topics does your student struggle with the most? Which classes or teachers do they enjoy the most, and why? 
What kinds of projects or assignments does your student excel at? Which do they enjoy the most? Which are the most challenging?
