We do not always provide all these services. Each student has different needs and benefits from a personalized service from us.

There is no general profile of the type of student we work with. We work with all types. Some are in desperate need of help because they are making bad judgment calls and are not equipped with the tools to continue on to college. Some are typical underachievers who need someone to show some interest in them succeeding. Some do well in school and are relatively well rounded but are content with going through school without challenging themselves to reach for more. Others are high achievers who want to take advantage of all that is out there in order for them to get to where they want to go.
