High School Students

Academic & School Support

For high school students, the dilemma can be one subject, or several. It can be switching into a course in mid-stream, a long absence, or illness. For some, boosting a B to an A in an honors or AP subject can make all the difference in college acceptance. For others, it’s motivation, study skills, organization or other learning issues. We tease out the factors that apply to you and help you conquer the course, learn how to learn, and achieve the best possible grade.

CP, Accelerated, Honors and AP level courses: Our tutors have the expertise and familiarity with course content to teach (or re-teach) math courses from algebra through calculus; the sciences (earth science, biology, chemistry and physics) at all levels. Kids find sessions engaging, whether for enrichment or reinforcement. You will too!

College Entrance Exam Prep for the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and the subject area tests

English, writing and projects: Our tutors are familiar with your curriculum and the literature you are assigned. We’ll guide you through the material. If you’ve done the homework, our tutors gently review the material, help shore up the soft spots and reinforce content as needed. You’ll find sessions rewarding and productive. Long term (or even week long) writing assignments can become a challenge. We sort out the requirements, help you get papers started, and get them done!

Math: Algebra I & II, Geometry, Trig, Pre-Calc (Analysis) & Calculus

Organizing assignments: We work with you to help you identify your learning style and the strategies that work best, whether for learning or organizing time, material, or other tasks. Together, we untangle the chaos and set up a system that works. The result: assignments are completed and handed in!
