"Study Smart, Not Hard" Workshops
Each summer, I offer workshops for middle and high school students. Each consists of a series of four consecutive two-hour classes that focus on the essential writing, study and organizational skills needed for success in middle and high school.
There will be four two hour sessions in each workshop series, at a cost of $400 per student with a $100 deposit, refundable only in the event that I must cancel the class. The price includes instruction, materials and individual assessment of student work. Students must bring a computer with internet capability to each class. Class size will be a maximum of ten students.
