Help Teens with School in McKinney, Tx

Academic Coaches and Tutors are our Specialty! We Help Teens with School in McKinney, Tx

Every week, students face uncertainty. Projects, papers, tests-these all determine a grade in a course that can ultimately help or hinder their progress in school. The mounting pressure to do well can cause some students to withdraw or shut down. We are here to walk along with them, helping them navigate the multiple demands on their time, create a workable plan, and organize their materials for success.

Each coach and tutor has an extensive background in education and can identify key elements your student can improve upon both immediately and over time to see results. Weekly snapshot reports will allow them and you to keep track of progress and note any areas of concern.

No more surprise assignments or missed due dates. 

Student will learn to proactively and incrementally plan each day to get the most value for their efforts. Understanding a balance and working a plan becomes habitual, leading to growth both in out of the classroom.

Staying Ahead vs. Digging Out

It has been proven many times over that staying on top is significantly easier than digging out once behind. Tutoring and coaching services can help students dig out faster if behind, but more importantly, they can help teach them the skills and techniques necessary to keep them on top once they get there.
Strategies that focus on incremental goal achievement and proactive planning are unique to our program and are what differentiates us from the competition. With an ACS coach, your teen can learn how to actively get organized and what it takes to stay that way. We joke that we have a “bad business model” in that our goal is to teach students how NOT to need us! We move our students from a healthy interdependence, understanding how to utilize resources and advocate for their needs, to a independence that can turn into leadership. Let us show you how we can get your teen there.
