You won't find the routine suggestions on this blog. We all know the ubiquitous advice -- have a quiet place to do homework -- use an assignment planner -- turn in homework. Here we want to explore the strategies and learning tools that will inspire "normal" students to let the "genius" within them explode onto the academic scene.
Articles will be in three categories: tactics for learning classroom subjects, clues for excelling on standardized tests, and special postings for parents who want to know more than their teens do about anything scholastic. Topics will be drawn from the experiences of the tutors at Tutoring Resources in Barrington and Northbrook, Illinois. Feel free to suggest topics of special interest to you.
