Middle School and High School Administrators:

We would love to serve families in your community. There is no cost for you, a school or community organization, to host Stan’s How to Study Class: After School Program. See the three easy steps below to set up a program. 

WHAT IS IT?

  • An in-person after school class designed to help students succeed in school

  • The one-day class is conveniently located at the host school and typically is scheduled from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. — we provide snacks for the students.

WHO IS THE HOW TO STUDY CLASS FOR?

  • Middle School Students (6th grade and up) – improve your academic performance in middle school and likewise get a head start on fine-tuning the study skills you’ll need to be successful in high school. The study skills you develop in middle school play a critical and direct role on your academic performance in high school

  • Bonus: Parents/guardians of enrolled students are invited to sit in on the class at no charge. We want parents/guardians to be able to reinforce the material at home.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE CLASS?

  • Improved grades in school (which, by the way, increases your chances for scholarships, admission to academic programs, and future job opportunities)
  • Less stress, particularly with regard to completing school assignments
  • Greater confidence on the part of the student in terms of his or her ability to do well in school

CASE STUDIES

Case study#1

Situation

Richard is a “B+” student. Yet his parents and teachers know he can easily be an “A-“ or “A” student. What can Richard do?

Thoughts

Stan’s How to Study Class can provide Richard with strategies to improve his study habits, which stands to positively impact his results on school assignments and ultimately improve Richard’s grade point average (GPA). Stan’s How to Study Class will not only help Richard perform well in high school, but also the class will give Richard a competitive advantage by preparing him to meet the increased demands and rigor of college.

Case study#2

Situation

Tyler is in middle school and is just learning how to study. Her parents recognize the importance of good study skills in order for Tyler to be successful in both middle school and high school. Tyler’s parents want her to go to college. Her parents are willing to invest in Tyler’s education and personal development at an early age because they know it will pay off in the future.

Thoughts

Tyler’s mom and dad are spot on. Tyler’s parents know that 50 to 60 percent of a student’s success in school results from strong study skills, not raw intelligence.

COST

Stan’s How to Study Class: After School Program is generally structured as a parent self-pay program. Schools may also choose to establish a contract with us for their students. The average cost per student ranges between $75-$125, which includes the class instruction, program packet, and snacks. The price variation is based on some customization that might be required at different school locations. The after school program focuses on the high-impact points of our full-day program, and for that reason, we are able to offer the after school program at a lower price.
