Did Your Child Struggle With End Of Grade Tests This Year?

Summer is the time to assess or reassess your child's progress.  If your child struggled with EOG's we encourage an academic evaluation to determine age and grade levels in reading, math and writing.  Targeted and customized follow-up instruction by our professionals prepares your student for a more successful school year.


Study Skills assessments for middle and high school students can identify those strengths and barriers to optimal performance.  Doing well in school takes specific skills, motivation and self-regulation.


The effective student is:

  • able to remember information, draw conclusions and make inferences; select main ideas and knows how to study effectively for a test;
  • has the attitude and motivation to work hard, maintain interest, and manage anxiety;
  • is able to concentrate, manage time, review information and create outlines and summaries.

Following assessment, we offer multiple options to help your child become a more successful student.
