Just as a professional athlete might engage the services of a fitness expert, the same can be said for students who wish to exercise their minds. Depending on the student’s needs, his or her academic training regimen may be designed with the sole purpose of keeping pace with the classroom. However, there are often underlying factors such as poor time management, test taking or study skills that contribute to a student’s performance. By addressing these concerns as well, the tutor can help build an infrastructure capable of supporting the weight of the curriculum. Also, any student wishing to reach ahead can do so with a series of summer prep sessions designed to familiarize him or her with some of the key concepts that lie ahead.
