Students that tend to struggle in a specific section of the high school curriculum or on standardized tests are often having a hard time because they have yet to develop a skill that makes success in those subjects possible.
Has your teenager struggled in this area for some time? Are they concerned that weakness in one area could prevent them from getting the SAT/ACT score they want and limit their college choices?
Has it gotten to the point where they've decided they're just "bad at" the offending subject matter?
Your teenager can learn to approach math, or reading, or any other academic challenge, as a game of skill that they can master and enjoy—instead of a brick wall they're being forced to run into year after year.
We teach our students how to form a new relationship with reading or math, and develop newfound confidence and ability.
Whether they've "always been bad at standardized tests," or get too anxious to do their best work on important exams, or there's just one specific weakness in their skill set holding them back, we've been there to help them learn new skills and thrive.
"I had been struggling with math ever since 6th grade. When I began to work with Much Smarter, math became much clearer to me. I not only improved my grade, but I learned new ways to approach a problem and gained the confidence I needed to do well. I'm so grateful to Much Smarter for not only improving my grades, but helping me understand and approach problems and difficulties with an open mind, and confidence that I can do anything."
