Resources for Parents and Students

We hope you find these resources useful in supporting your student’s growth as you engage in one of the toughest, most rewarding jobs on the planet: parenthood!

Parent/Student Assessments        

If you are scheduled to work with one of our tutors, please complete the assessment below. This will help us prioritize the work for your child. Parents have one version to fill out, and students have another. The assessment covers general academics, organization, time management, study skills, and stress management. The assessment takes about 15 minutes to complete and will be reviewed and shared, per your request, by the tutor after tutoring begins. Thank you for taking the time to provide this important information.:
