Reading, Writing, and Research

Whether students are enthusiastic budding authors or hesitant writers in need of a boost, our Reading/Writing tutoring courses are a perfect fit. Each course is tailored to meet students where they are and build confidence and independence in each step of the writing process.

English Enrichment

In a typical Reading/Writing enrichment course, students learn to read quickly without losing comprehension, summarize, and analyze. They practice engaging in literary analysis, writing research papers and persuasive essays, and completing timed writing assessments. Students also enrich their writing with advanced grammar and vocabulary.

Science Research

Students choose a book that matches their interests—psychology, statistics, neuroscience, etc.—and use it as a springboard for a research paper.

Expect to explore challenging books, fascinating articles, statistics, and the art of writing.

Past research projects have included an analysis of technology in medicine and an exploration of the lifelong impacts of poverty in early childhood.

Study Skills and Psychology

Everyone, from middle school through graduate school and beyond, can benefit from learning cognitive science-driven study skills. All Mind the Test tutoring courses are designed based on principles of cognitive science, helping students develop psychology research-based study skills and metacognition: thinking about thinking. In a dedicated study skills course, students take a deep dive into their own brains and develop a complex understanding of what it means to learn. Students learn to take ownership of their education and apply these study skills to help them succeed in high school, college, and beyond.

Every course is bespoke, tailored to meet each student’s needs.

History tutor

History & Humanities

In our history tutoring or enrichment programs, students choose a topic aligned with their school’s curriculum and explore it in depth through videos, activities, books, and essays, culminating in a research paper.

Math

In addition to SAT and ACT-focused math education, we offer middle school and high school math tutoring. Whether students love math and want a fascinating enrichment class or need to catch up and fill in gaps in their knowledge, we can create a tutoring program that fits their needs.
