Your teen isn't stupid, but poor study skills might make them feel that way...

Would you like to help your child achieve their goals and build a strong foundation for a bright future?

 Study Skills

Is homework a huge chore?

Is it like pulling teeth because your teen just
doesn't know what to do or fights the whole time?

Is your teen unhappy in school?

Dear “I just want my kid to be happy,”

    We regularly get calls from parents just like you asking how they can end the struggle and frustration of homework. They want to stop the chaos and tension, get their kids out of the failure mindset, and help them to be successful. They want their kids to build healthy self ­esteem and just be happier in school. If that sounds like you, then you are not alone.

You are in the right place.


“As a parent, I want what is best for my daughter. In addition to helping her, Tutoring Up­Grades helped give me peace of mind.  They want the best for their students and provide them with the tools that they need to succeed.”

~Kathleen, Mother of Tutoring Up-­Grades Student (Wappingers Falls)

     Study skills are not really taught in schools, and yet, they are such a needed skill for success in high school and college. We've had so many kids come to us needing these skills that we've put all our strategies together in one place.


Our course helps students know...

what to study so they don't waste time studying things they don't need;

when to study to get the most retention in the least amount of time;

where studying should take place to optimize their schedule and their scores;

how to study the material so that they are confident, capable, and of course – successful!

There are some students who just figure this stuff out. Somehow, through trial and error, they stumble onto something that works for them.

But who wants to stumble?

     For most students, studying isn't natural at all. It's a struggle for them and for you. We had one parent describe it as the beginning of World War III.

     The difficulty is, most kids really don't want to be in a war. They are kids after all! They don't want to struggle. They aren't choosing to feel stupid. It's not a character flaw in them or you.

Here's the thing – something can be done about it.

“My daughter comes home from tutoring so positive and focused. Thank you so very much. She is eager and excited. Seeing her calm and confident is so amazing.”

~Lisa, Mother of Tutoring Up-Grades Student (Poughkeepsie)

     In our private tutoring we address all the fundamentals of learning. And all our Study Skills videos are included with all private tutoring courses. Some students don't need help understanding algebra or catching up in chemistry. They get the concepts, but they struggle with the study part.

Our Study Skills Course addresses:

  • overcoming procrastination
  • preparing for tests
  • retaining information
  • study environment
  • note­taking
  • reading for comprehension
  • how to do homework so it improves scores and takes less time
  • how to use cutting edge techniques to grow the mind and overcome the obstacles that block
  • success
  • overcoming stress
  • paying attention in class
  • interacting with teachers
  • focus

     There is so much pressure for kids to do well, not just in school but in extracurricular activities too. It takes time to juggle that kind of schedule.

Even really bright kids can fall behind without the proper study skills.

     We all know studying is important for learning. But it's not enough to know why we study. Students need to know what to study, when to study it, where to study, and how. And now, they can.

“Yesterday our son was admitted Early Decision to Colorado College. We are THRILLED and so is he.  It was by far his first choice. We are so proud of him. Thank you for your role in helping him to achieve this important milestone!”

~Jen, Mother of Tutoring Up­-Grades Student (Lagrangeville)

We are all learners. From the day we are born, we are learning.
Homework doesn't have to be a war. Evenings can be peaceful. Your kids can feel good about going to school with all their projects and homework done, and ready for tests.

Give us a call, and we'll help you end the homework nightmare.
