Academic Tutoring

As schools begin the year with distance learning, you can count on Compass for any extra support your student may need. Many students are looking for ways to stay on pace with the school year.

Compass has a deep and talented team of subject-specific experts ready to begin custom programs for the 2020-21 school year. Our one-on-one academic tutors will supplement your student’s school classes by providing individualized instruction, attention, and support with subject content.

Study Skills and Organizational Coaching (SSOC)

Now more than ever, students are being called upon to take responsibility for their own learning experience. Compass’s Study Skills and Organizational Coaching is designed to help students develop the study, time management, and organizational skills to help them stay on track. 

Where academic tutoring is focused on helping students learn material that is being taught in class, SSOC is focused on helping students apply systems like the Pomodoro System of Time Management or the Cornell Note-Taking Method. A Compass-trained SSOC tutor will work with your student to develop a system of studying and organization that works for your student: no more missed deadlines, last-minute cram sessions, or wasted time searching through unintelligible notes. This program goes beyond just monitoring schoolwork: our goal is to equip students with skills they can take with them to college and beyond.

Compass focuses exclusively on customized, one-on-one tutoring. We take the time to evaluate your strengths and weaknesses, then make personalized recommendations. Your college goals, your learning style, your schedule, even your extracurricular interests—we take all of this into account in matching you with the ideal instructors. Read more about our approach.

Success Stories

We are so grateful for all you did to help Crystal understand how to study with dyslexia and be the best student she could be. Your tutors were exceptional and so caring about Crystal's needs and challenges. The good news - she has gone on to graduate with honors and will attend her first-choice university. Thank you so much!

Our three kids each attended different high schools and had unique strengths and challenges. We used Compass for tutoring for the ACT for all three kids, and also for some supplemental math tutoring for our daughter. Each or our kids’ ACT scores improved dramatically as a direct result of the Compass tutors’ guidance. And our daughter’s understanding and achievement in her school math class also improved noticeably. Perhaps best of all, Compass managed to match our kids with tutors who perfectly fit each of our kids’ unique personalities and learning needs, in addition to being talented, courteous, and reliable. And the Compass directors and office staff was always accessible, attentive and responsive. A 100% pleasant and positive experience all the way around.
