Getting ready for college is a process you should start early in your high school career. College prep is learning to be independent and study on your own, how to think critically and be motivated to succeed are all valuable skills you need to master prior to leaving school.

 You can and should continue your education beyond a high school diploma or GED.

Why is college prep important?

  • 81% of job openings for Colorado “Top Jobs” typically require some education/training after high school, whether apprenticeship, certificate, two- or four-year degree.
  • Americans with four-year college degrees made 98% more an hour on average in 2013 than people without a degree.

Why start early?

  • Real learning takes time. Starting with a tutor with college prep early in the semester gives your student a chance to learn concepts slowly and solidly.
  • Early work with a tutor helps your student grasp foundation concepts on which more difficult work may be build. Getting the basic building blocks early can prevent difficulty later in the semester; it’s a proactive approach.
  • Beginning early with college prep and  a tutor means that there is time to change tutors if that is necessary. All tutors are not alike. If the match-up isn’t right, there is time to make changes before crunch time occurs.
  • Beginning early means that your student and his tutor will have time to get to know one another. They will have time to establish the rapport that can make a difference in how they work together. The more that the tutor works with your student, the more he will get to know her strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles. This means that the tutor will know best what areas need to be addressed and what style of approach will work best.
  • Early work will mean that early homework assignments will be done correctly. This translates to a higher grade average and less jeopardy occurring later in the semester. It lowers the stakes for one major event such as a midterm or final exam.
  • A tutor will hold your student accountable for completing work. This will help your student with time management skills and will also mean that your student may simply be spending more time with the material than she would otherwise.
  • Your student will learn early some of the important study techniques of successful students. The tutor serves as an important role model as your student learns how to “do college” successfully.
    The professor will see that your student is taking the course seriously and working hard to do his best work. That message of effort is important.
  • Your student will receive constant feedback on his work. In some college courses, continual feedback may not come from the professor. There may be only one or two major tests or papers. Receiving early and continual feedback from a tutor helps your student stay on track.
  • Your student may build confidence in his learning abilities as he successfully navigates work that the tutor may assign. This may help with his motivation to continue to do well.
  • When the busy tutoring season of midterm or final exams occurs, a student who has an established relationship and schedule with a tutor may be given priority of time. Tutors who are extremely busy or in demand are more likely to give priority to regular students.
  • Your student will establish a relationship and make a new friend – a role model of good academic skills as well as a role model of helping others.

Subject Matter and Skills

Brush up on skills you did not do well on in the final exams. If your math, science or Language Arts skills need work, it’s best to brush up before going to college. Getting a tutor is the most effective way to do this. A tutor can work at your pace and provide help in the areas that you need to improve rather than covering stuff you already know. A tutor can really help to shore up your foundations in preparation for college. Remember that college and university curriculums move at a blistering pace. You will have so much more work to do than you did in high school and there will be no time to play catch-up. Working through the summer also keeps you in study mode and will make the transition to college seamless.

Study Methods

You must be able to study independently and consistently. There is just far too much work to cram before exams and students who have not got great study habits will soon find themselves floundering. If you need help with your study methods, consult a tutor. Tutors will help to find a study method that suits your way of learning and your personality. Tutors can also help with ways to improve your memory, create study schedules and monitor your progress.
