Study Skills and Test Prep
Test Preparation and Study Skills are essential for the best performance in school. We integrate these skills as much as possible at each tutoring session. We offer specialized classes for the unique skills needed for the jump to high school and AP class study.
Comprehensive skill set learning to: take notes, keep a notebook, test preparation, reading speed and comprehension, schedule planning, how math and science require unique skills to learn. Using multiple methods to learn. How to use media and electronic resources including calculators.
AP STUDY SKILLS
This course prepares students for AP/College level classes. In these classes, much more material is covered at a much faster pace. Students are given less guidance as to what material is important, and are expected to “learn on their own.” That’s how you learn in college, and to some extent, in real life. Our classes are inline with the Cornell Method as put forth by Walter Pauk in his book “How to Study in College,” now in its eleventh edition.
SAT & ACT
We have been helping raise SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) and ACT (American College Testing) scores in Georgia for over 10 years. There is a specific strategy and a method of review that maximizes each student’s score. We like to keep review classes small to give individual attention to students. We utilize review material published by the companies who administer the tests. We focus on strategy and timing as well as actual subject review. We’ve seen much success in SAT/ACT prep!
