Students learn differently.

 

When students understand the ways they learn and study best,

they develop skills that will help them succeed in school and beyond.

Misunderstanding material is often due to a focus challenge

coming from students needing to receive the material in a different way.

 

A spark of excitement is often the difference

between rote memorization and true, conceptual understanding.

Let's talk about how we learn.

 
 

Learning

to Learn

People have different strengths when it comes to learning. 

Understanding what study methods work best for you allows you to encode information to long-term memory efficiently. 

Analyzing scores is essential to dynamically guiding study and maximizing improvement.

WHAT STUDENTS AND PARENTS ARE SAYING

"I was really happy with my work with Jessica because we went through all of the material in a very organized manner. I also really liked how she kept the notes from every session in order to identify common trends, which really helped me, especially as the test day approached. I also was given plenty of material and practice to do every week, and the culmination of learning new grammar and practicing helped me earn a better understanding of the latin language in general." 

— Ami G., Latin SAT Subject Test student

"It was very apparent from the first session that Jessica was not only intelligent but also able to quickly evaluate my son’s areas of strengths and weaknesses and devise a plan of action. My son's SHSAT score improved 21 points."

— Amanda H., parent of SHSAT student

 

"Hi, oh my freaking gosh I cannot thank you enough - just got my scores back. 97th percentile in verbal, 99th in reading, and 99th in math!"

— Sophie G., perfect score ACT student
