Study Skills Tutoring for 6th-12th grade students

Stan’s How to Study tutoring provides students with one-to-one, personalized study skills coaching and tutoring in order to optimize their performance in school.

Our tutoring services are offered in-person or via video conference. You can buy a one-time tutoring session or take advantage of our discounted 5-hour and 10-hour subscription-based tutoring packages. With a subscription-based tutoring package, parents, for instance, pay a one-time, flat subscription fee for their student. In turn, the student is able to access our tutoring services on a weekly or on an as needed and flexible basis — without having to deal with the administrative tasks associated with account set-up or billing. When your student depletes the hours in his or her subscription account or “bank of time,” parents can re-up the subscription.

Testimonials

“We are grateful to Mr. Lemons for sharing his program/system with our son. It helped to close the door on old habits and open the door to new, productive ones. His system helped to view all of the educational experience through the lens of organization which paves the path to success. His system has built in life-savers as well with self-advocacy as its thrust. Our son has never approached school through this lens until now and we are excited to see the fruit it yields! Mr. Lemons is well-grounded and easy to approach which made the delivering of his system unintimidating and absolutely manageable. Thank you.”

Stacy Cianciulli, Parent and Dallas Independent School District Teacher
