Students that tend to struggle in a specific section of the high school curriculum are often having a hard time because they have yet to develop a skill that makes success in those subjects possible. It's really hard to thrive in English or History classes if you don't read very much or write very well, and it's equally difficult to handle advanced Math classes if you're shaky on basic arithmetic or algebra. And each year you go without developing those skills will make it harder and harder to catch up.
It is never too late to learn how to read or write well, or how to master basic math, or even how to study.
We specialize in coaching students who want to excel, but don't know how yet. We help them develop the skills they need to excel in high school and beyond. Once our kids buy into our approach to learning, and once they put the work in, they report better grades, better SAT or ACT scores, less anxiety and frustration in their "difficult" classes, and more confidence and self-reliance in every area of their lives!
Whether you've "always been bad at standardized tests," or you get too anxious to do your best work on big exams, or there's one specific weakness in your skill set that's holding you back, you're not alone.
"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."
