I recently read an article titled After-School Activities Make Educational Inequality Even Worse by Hilary Friedman.

This essentially perpetuates class divisions. The article... read more

Study Skills is quite the buzz word these days in the tutoring world, but what exactly are study skills? I decided to do a little research to see what others are saying about study skills and it turns out there are as many study skills as there are tutors. As I wondered how to choose which ones to write about I decided it boils down to my experience as a student, a teacher, and a tutor. I also... read more

I have been using a planner since the beginning of my elementary education. Clearly, in Elementary school it was more of a way for my teacher to update my parents on my assignments, and I couldn't really understand the personal benefits of it yet. In high school, when my work load became more complicated by seven classes, which each had a different teacher, my planner became invaluable to me.... read more

I want to make it very clear of my cancellation policy to potential students as well as other tutors as I think it is important that all sides are clear on this topic. I take my tutoring of you and/or your children very seriously. Tutoring is like any other appointment and is not something that you do when you feel like it. Your education is important to me as well as it should be to you as well... read more

Unless you are traveling in a spaceship and moving close to the speed of light, time passes at the same rate for everyone. The Earth takes approximately 24 hours to complete one full rotation on its axis, which has resulted in a day being 24 hours long. So why do some people seem to be able to accomplish so much more when we all have the same amount of time in our day? Simply, they have mastered... read more

When we talk about time management we are inevitably thinking externally. There is this thing called time, which hangs out in the corner of your eye, always present yet elusive. Strategies for time management are thus often externally focused: Use software like Leechblock, an add-on to Firefox. This software blocks access to social media and other websites that tempt us to waste... read more

I talk to a lot of people who struggle to bring sanity to their schedules. Time management is one of those areas in life where we can become very ingrained in our patterns of thought and behavior, like King Arthur's thoughts at the very end of The Once and Future King. He sits in his war pavilion, having lost two battles, his round table, and the people closest to him. Struggling to make... read more

Your schedule is congested: walll-to-wall study, activities, community service. You're lucky to have time for food and sleep.   And you have to be ready for class the next day. But how?   There are many things you can replace if lost or stolen: smartphones, laptops, tablets, to name a few. You cannot, however, replace lost time. Whether an hour, a day, or a year--lost... read more

Finding a way to give yourself adequate time to study can be daunting, especially for those who are working, or have children. Below are four important concepts to keep in mind: 1.

As summer comes to an end, we see the crazed effects that the back to school season brings with it, a chaotic maelstrom of bodies flying about through the campus bookstore, the enduring lines of disgruntled faces waiting to be served by the cashier, a babe crying while the mother withstands the impatient glances around her. If you are anything like me, you would cringe at the thought of having... read more
