“OPEN-EDvantage Tutors not only prepared our son for his Freshman year in high school with organizational support and tips to navigate this leap successfully, they are always there to provide additional coaching and support. OPEN-EDvantage Tutors invested additional time to help him become an outstanding writer. By spending time getting to know his personality and unique learning style, OPEN-EDvantage Tutors taught him critical thinking and communication skills that has guided him through his entire high school career. We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with OPEN-EDvantage Tutors.”

“The session was important because I learned that what I do in high school is important for college and I need to start taking steps for my future freshman year.”

“Listening to OPEN EDvantage Tutors at the parents’ meeting opened my eyes to all the tools and resources they have available to the parents, to help us, and guide our kids, through high school, and hopefully in the process, reduce the stress that we all feel.

OPEN EDvantage Tutors is a wealth of information, knowing how to maneuver through the high school years smoothly, and also to prepare for college. I hope I can use OPEN EDvantage Tutors as a resource throughout my sons’ high school years, for guidance and support.”

“OPEN EDvantage Tutors’ perspective as a teacher gave me insights into how to succeed in high school. Organization and study techniques are so important. I benefited during my freshman and sophomore years from her class.”

“My daughter had a very successful and positive freshman year because she felt prepared for high school. She learned that organization is the key to success in high school. Note-taking techniques were helpful and OPEN EDvantage Tutors shared several websites that students can use to find information quickly when writing essays or studying for tests.”

“I feel like the session is really going to help me feel prepared for high school this year!”

“OPEN EDvantage Tutors was an amazing resource for our family. ‘Tutoring’ does not accurately describe their services. Yes, they help your student with homework, but they also help your student get organized, stay motivated, and set short and long-term goals. OPEN EDvantage Tutors help students who excel in high school and those who may need additional support services. We are so grateful for their help and highly recommend OPEN EDvantage Tutors!”

“Organization is key in high school, and the tips to stay organized that I learned in this summer’s class have helped me stay on top of everything this year and will all throughout high school.”

“Spent a few minutes on the phone with an OPEN EDvantage Tutor after she has had some time to work with my daughter. First, my daughter has truly loved working with her and I can see more energy and life from her. Second, she was upbeat, professional, and intuitive with me today. She had a great suggestion for my daughter to keep a time journal so she can track her time (as she easily loses her focus) and we collaborated on some ideas/messages and accountability for her moving forward.

So helpful to have this new resource. Just wanted you to know. Thanks to you both.”
