PROVIDING YOU WITH THE BEST SERVICES
WE OFFER A VARIETY OF SERVICES FOR BOTH STATE SIDE AND INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
“Time management is life management”. Robin Sharma, Writer
Often times a student will find themselves trying to juggle different aspects of their academic lives only to find themselves falling further behind. Our team will help the student implement planning and the means to exercise conscious control of time spent on homework and school activities. Good time management skills have been proven to increase effectiveness, efficiency and productivity.
IDENTIFYING STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES
“Success is achieved by developing our strengths, not by eliminating our weaknesses”.
Every student has their own learning style; visual, auditory, tactile and kinesthetic, to name a few. Our goal is to help identify the specific learning style of each student to further assist them in their academic studies. We focus on the student’s strengths in order to minimize their weaknesses.
PLAN OF ACTION
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. Nelson Mandela
Students seeking “the best fit” for their future endeavors oftentimes find themselves frustrated and confused. We focus on finding the right setting and exploration of programs that will suit their needs with a customized plan.
“Research is creating new knowledge”. Neil Armstrong
Books, websites, and lists of resources will be available for our students to research colleges to find “the right fit”. Students will be encouraged to examine their own interests, goals and plans for the future. Parents will be an integral part of this important transitioning process.
COLLEGE DRAFT LIST
ESSAYS THAT STAND OUT
“Keep calm and write the essay”.
College essays greatly influence admissions decisions. Essay coaching is an invaluable resource. We will work with your student to produce a college admission essay that ensures they will be a strong candidate, and will stand out among other applicants.
BEYOND THE APPLICATION
“Why fit in when you were born to stand out!?” Dr. Seuss
Beyond the college application, and/or portfolio, we will coach the student in building an online presence, following up with contacts and conduct mock interviews that will help finalize the applicant profile.
SCHOLARSHIPS, GAP YEARS & INTERNSHIPS
“Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly”.
Would you like to teach English in Japan for three months? How do you feel about joining a theater company in London? Taking a gap year before college is on the rise! There are also many resources for scholarships that will aid in funding that gap year. What better way to impress a future employer, than a story about being a volunteer in another country? We can provide that information to help make that happen.
HIGH SCHOOL ENGLISH MENTORING
CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOPS
“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart”. William Wordsworth
Creative Writing expresses thoughts and emotions using critical thinking skills. We will assist the student in developing characters, setting the scene, and adding dialogue through a variety of writing genres. The workshop will be offered on weekends or as a tutoring session as requested. Our students will be encouraged to submit their work to writing contests. Having a published piece of work stands out on a college application.*No written piece will be submitted without the consent of a parent or guardian.
“You have what it takes”.
Your future college student may opt for a non-traditional school setting. We specialize in creating portfolios for art, photography, writing and acting. A portfolio showcases a student’s finest work along with other college application requirements.
COACHING THE ACTOR
“Stop wondering if you’re good enough. Know you are and start acting like it”. Simon Black
