Study & Executive Functioning Skills Coaching

A Letter from Our CEO

Dear Parent -

In the 1990's we launched StudyPoint with a singular focus: to help students learn the basic study and organizational skills they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive academic environment. Today those skills are collectively referred to as "Executive Functioning Skills," and they're more important than ever.

To a degree unlike that of any previous generation, your child is expected to be a professional student—capable of learning large volumes of information; capable of performing flawlessly on high stakes exams; and capable of managing a calendar of extra-curricular activities and school deadlines that would make a professional administrative assistant tremble.

In short, the college admissions process and other factors have turned being a high school student into a job—and, yet, 99% of high schoolers have never received even the most basic training on how to be an effective student. Your child may well spend 16-20 years in school and never learn how to take effective notes, prepare for an important exam, or manage a busy schedule. Imagine if a company hired an employee, and in the span of nearly two decades never provided that employee a single day of training on how to do his or her daily responsibilities... It's a laughable proposition, and yet, it is likely what your child is experiencing right now.

Our study and executive functioning skills program is on the job training for students taking the critical step to high school. Developed with feedback from students, parents, teachers, and guidance counselors, it is designed to help your child better manage the increased academic expectations of secondary school. It's a fantastic program that we think should be mandatory for every 8th or 9th grader.

If you think your son or daughter might benefit from organizational and study skills tutoring, please keep reading the information below to learn more about our unique approach to study skills instruction.

Sincerely,

A NOTE ON COVID-19:

Dear Parent - the last year has presented challenges on so many fronts, and perhaps nowhere more so than at school. For a generation of kids who already feel more pressure than any before them, the pandemic has thrown everything into disarray - and in doing so has dramatically increased the anxiety around school and college admissions.

Against this backdrop, the most important thing for you to know about StudyPoint is that we're a national leader in both online and in-home tutoring. We've been doing in-home tutoring since the 1990's, and began offering online tutoring a decade ago. In total we've completed more than 650,000 hours of in-home tutoring and over 500,000 hours of one-to-one, online instruction. 

In most locations, if your family is ready to move back to face to face instruction, we have fully vaccinated tutors who are able to meet with your child in the convenience of your home.  If you prefer online, we have a great team of instructors who can meet with your child in our custom virtual classroom that was purpose-built for live, online tutoring. We've invested heavily in custom technology to make online instruction more effective, and in a typical year more than half of our programs are online.

And keep in mind that through years of collecting data we have found that our in-home and online student outcomes are basically identical. Whichever format is the best fit for your family right now, you can have the peace of mind that your child is working with a national leader.

We're your partner in navigating these challenging times and ensuring that your child feels like things are under control. We're here to help, so please don't hesitate to contact us if you need it.

One-to-One, Private Study Skills Tutoring

Your Pace

In class the teacher needs to keep moving whether your child understands the concept or not. Your study skills tutor will work at your child's pace and will review material until it's clear that he or she has mastered the concept.

Your Work

Our focus is developing your child's study skills so he or she can apply those skills to current school work.  The tutor's key responsibility is to provide your child with the neccessary tools to prepare for and succeed on important exams, papers, and projects throughout his or her academic career.

Your Success

Our goal is to help your child earn a stronger grade through better study skills, but equally important, our study skills tutoring will help your child take ownership of his or her learning and become a more successful, independent student.

An Expert Team of Carefully Selected Study Skills Tutors

Subject Specific Expertise

Our experienced study skills tutors have degrees (and often advanced degrees) from some of the country’s best colleges and universities.

Extensive Teaching/ Tutoring Experience

They’re experienced, passionate teachers, and they know how to engage students and break down difficult concepts.

Thoughtful, Flexible Teaching Styles

Being smart isn't enough—our tutors are able to listen well and communicate clearly, and they adapt their approach to fit your child.

You (and your family) are busy

To be effective, an educational program has to work with your family's schedule. We make life easier by bringing the tutoring to you through two convenient options:

In home study skills tutoring

Our flagship program, which we launched in the late 1990's, our in-home tutoring option provides you with the unparalleled convenience and personalized attention of a private tutor who will work with your child right at your kitchen table. All lessons are one-to-one, and your instructor will ensure that each session is highly focused on your child’s unique needs.

Online study skills Tutoring

Instead of meeting at the kitchen table your child and the tutor meet in a custom online learning environment. This innovative tool enables them to talk through strategies and complete practice problems, just as they would on a workbook at your kitchen table. Online tutoring replicates the in-person tutoring dynamic, and it’s remarkably effective.

Happy, Successful Students

Students spend 50% of their waking hours at school or doing homework and something that occupies such a large amount of time inevitably plays a big role in their happiness. School is tough—there are social, emotional, and academic challenges.

Ultimately, the end goal of a StudyPoint tutoring program is improved performance in school, and that improvement is easily measurable—an A on quiz, an outstanding test, or a grade worthy of the refrigerator door. We believe the best measure of your child’s understanding and progress is the grade on his or her report card, and that is how we measure our success with clients.

Yet there is an added benefit—something that is difficult to measure but easy to recognize. It is the sense of accomplishment that comes from working to improve something and seeing positive results. Few smiles are as big as the ones that company a strong report card.

Our greatest reward is the positive feedback we get from parents who report their children are now confident and happy in school as a result of our study skills tutoring.
