I can provide affordable coaching sessions in the following areas: study skills, college application, transition from high school to college, from school to work, course selection, responsible decision making, and making effective educational goals. I improve study skills by identifying students' learning styles by testing, creating an effective study schedule and plan that meshes well with other priorities, gives adequate time to retain information, and works best for the student, introducing effective memorization techniques such as mnemonic devices, establishing student accountability, using effective note taking strategies such as the Cornell method, emphasizing the importance of daily revision to retain information and avoiding cramming when tests are approaching, creating goals that align with the students' study plan and monitoring consistency, maintaining organization, and engaging in all pertinent assignments and readings to become a successful test taker and maintain a good grade point average.
I help students apply for college by helping them search for schools through CommonApp, Collegeboard, emphasize the importance on what colleges look for in applicants such as a course of study that aligns with the desired major, extracurricular activities and sports, internships, and educational volunteer experience.
