What We Do
Our fundamental belief is that children learn best in the context of supportive relationships. We are committed to helping students better understand how they learn and how they can take ownership of that learning. Our team provides educational solutions for adolescents and children through individual assessment, personally tailored learning programs, and one-on-one coaching.
Our approach to standardized test preparation was influenced by the founders’ collective experience working in cognitive science at Yale University. Their method was formulated based on years of working within the public school system to help develop and research effective models for aligning student evaluation with school curriculum.
Our approach teaches critical thinking, applied reasoning, and problem solving strategies. We help students understand fundamental principles about how the world of information is organized and how they can interact with that information. This process does not involve the rote memorization of vocabulary or inundation of practice questions that many associate with “test prep.” Instead, we focus on teaching students effective strategies for gathering, sequencing, categorizing, and classifying information from text and visual sources. These processes contribute to a student’s ability to reason, solve problems, make inferences, and draw conclusions.
Who We Are
Our staff is composed of educators from around the country whose collective experiences strengthen us as individuals and as an organization. We work closely together to create and execute individualized learning plans, meaning that you’ll continue to develop your instructional, relationship-building, and analytical skills in a way that will allow you to consider the whole child – their learning profile, personality, and environmental circumstances.
Who You Are
The ideal candidate is smart, honest, and has some experience in coaching for standardized exams and content areas related to standardized testing in a competitive metropolitan market.
Preference will be given to candidates who have had experience working with students on the SAT or ACT, Math, or students with diagnosed learning differences and accommodations on standardized testing.
Candidates should be proficient in providing instruction for both verbal and quantitative portions of the SAT and ACT.
