HOW WE WORK
Find out more about our rigorous ¨class of one¨ experience.
Our approach to optimizing your test performance was designed to meet the unique learning challenges of our students. You can’t just study material. You can’t just work on your process of elimination technique under pressure. And you can’t just meditate or do breathing exercises. You need to do all three.
Our Integrated Approach Focuses on ALL Areas of Test-Taking Success.
You can have a library of test material stored in your brain, but without an effective test strategy and test-day focus, it can feel impossible to “check out the right books” during your exam.
Through our years of teaching experience, we have discovered that mastering any test involves mastering not just the content and test strategies, but also having the mental clarity needed to overcome any testing anxiety.
Shana's programs are structured properly according to how the human mind learns. My LSAT score improved 20 points. I cannot speak highly enough of this service.
137 --> 157 LSAT Score
Let's start out by stating Shana and her team are absolutely phenomenal! I had to reach out to Shana to pass my high school Praxis Math 5161 exam which I had taken four times. The program started out with a phone call from Shana who calmed me down after my fourth fail. She assured me that my problems with test anxiety and failures were normal and she was able to help. Over just three short weeks, my comfort level with the test problems rose and on test day I rocked it. To this day I am still thankful for the duo. Let's just say that fifth time's the charm.
Finally passed Praxis Math!
WHAT TO EXPECT
SCHEDULE A 15 MIN CONSULT
We'll get to know each other a bit and also review the test you want to take, your deadline and goal (point increase) and any learning challenges. You'll leave with a recommended high-level study plan.
DEVELOP YOUR INDIVIDUAL CURRICULUM
If you decide to start working with us, the next step is a comprehensive evaluation of your learning history, testing challenges, and testing goals. We’ll identify the areas that need the most improvement for the biggest score-boosting gains. We'll then come up with a rigorous study plan for you focused on the areas that are most challenging to you.
BEGIN YOUR STRUCTURED LESSONS
Each tutoring appointment is structured just like a real class. You receive a syllabus and course outline focused on content mastery and test strategies. Each class is focused on the guided practice of each lesson. Our workbooks and test materials designed by certified teachers and attorneys and use official test questions. After each class, you are given homework to complete that is focused on independently practicing that lesson. In the following class, we review your homework and mistakes. You won't move on to the next lesson until you've mastered the lesson.
LEARN MENTAL CLARITY TECHNIQUES
We are realistic about what it means to perform where you want to and this is why we take mental clarity so seriously. Students with test anxiety, for example, generally underperform by 12%. We have experience working with students with learning disabilities and provide specific coaching for each individual student's needs.
