Many students are not successful in school due to a lack of time management and organization skills.  Others simply do not know how to study.  Each person has a specific learning style that will enable that student to maximize his/her learning potential and abilities.  Study skills tutoring sessions are designed to assist each student to discover his/her personal study style, maximizing strengths and compensating for weakness.  Time management, organizational skills, and study strategies can be learned in isolation but need to be practiced in the real world setting of actual school assignments.  Therefore, study skills’ tutoring is often paired with academic tutoring allowing the tutor to coach the student through meeting actual timelines and test preparation.  As the student realizes success, the tutor/coach gradually releases control to the student as he/she becomes an independent learner.
