College Application and Essay Coaching

We love helping students craft door-opening college application essays! Register here to secure a space with one of our experienced writing specialists. We can assist students with all stages of the application essay process from brainstorming to editing final drafts. We also are happy to look over your Common Application, particularly the Activities section, to make sure you're effectively showcasing your accomplishments and interests. 

Private and Small Group Tutoring

We offer private tutoring for test prep (SAT/ACT), any high school subject area, general study skills and college applications and essays. We are happy to work virtually with your student, and many of our specialists are willing to meet for in-person sessions following COVID safety protocols. If your student would like to work with a friend or two, we can arrange small group sessions around their schedules. 

Contact us to schedule private or small group meetings or for more information.

ACT vs. SAT Assessments

If you're unsure which test - SAT or ACT - is the better fit for your student, we can help! We offer SAT vs. ACT Assessments to help students select a test of focus. Colleges accept either test, so save time by deciding on a test that fits your skill set!

PreACT and PSAT Previews and Assessments

If you're a freshman or sophomore, these options are for you! We can help you prepare for the preACT sophomores take in the fall and the PSAT juniors take in October. We can show you what to expect on each test, provide basic strategies for all sections, and guide you through practice test questions so you can earn an accurate score on these pre-assessments.

Fall PSAT Seminar 

Join us for a one-day PSAT Strategies seminar this fall where juniors will learn verbal and math strategies to help them on all sections of the PSAT. Chapel Hill-Carrboro and surrounding area schools administer the PSAT to all juniors in October, so let us help your student feel confident on test day. High scorers on the PSAT can also qualify for National Merit Scholarships, so it makes sense to prepare for this test! We will provide practice materials and a link to a full PSAT for students to continue preparing on their own after the seminar. Registration opens in August.

We are always happy to schedule private tutoring sessions for your student. Contact us to work out a plan that fits your family's schedule.
