success is learned.

At Succes4School we believe success is learned;

even special skills like how to switch tasks or pay attention and your everyday skills of course, such as math, writing an essay, using good letter formation or completing college applications.

Where are YOU in your journey?

Success4School focuses on families-it is NOT business as usual there- we had a say, our teen learned about herself, how to finally study-but more importantly, we were a family again- our time no longer revolved around her homework & projects...

ACADEMIC SUPPORT

Subject Tutoring: Math, Reading, Writing, Phonics, End of Year Test Prep, Private School [SSAT & ISEE] & Specialty Test Prep [ASVAB, GRE]

Get Started

Our one on one, private tutoring provides academic support in all areas. Our methods are backed by research and achieve real results. Our specialists utilize materials already aligned to the exact practices being used in the classroom-using NC Standards. We encourage the use of thinking aloud, using tools, and solving problems in an individual way that works for the student. We make learning hands-on and provide manipulatives so learning integrates understanding with the abstract. We emphasize what students can do, rather than on what they cannot do, which leads to a very different approach regarding incorrect test answers. All our specialists are highly qualified teachers and session frequency is individualized to the student's needs, come for a while, or get single session help.

In addition to subject tutoring we provide one on one test prep for end of year, course or specialty testing. Private and Parochial schools often times require students to successfully pass an entrance exam in order to gain admission. At Success4School we see these exams as windows of opportunity for your child to show what they know and for you to see if the school is the right fit. Students need time for test prep and review of material- don't leave any exam to chance.

COLLEGE TEST PREP (SAT/ACT)

ONE TO ONE Test Prep sessions

All Ready?

Purchase five session-bundle

Purchase a single-session


Our SAT/ACT test prep enables students to become better test strategists, as well as bringing an added benefit of improving overall reading, math and writing performance. This in turn does not only improve SAT or ACT scores, but develops the student further for when they write a personal statement for college, read a college textbook; even building greater foundations for college level math. Students with learning differences will feel supported and successful each time they meet with an SAT/ACT Coach with not only a background in understanding, identifying, and remediating the skills but ones that have the backgrounds to help lock that understanding in, so your student can feel confident while taking one of the most important tests taken!  Our individualized preparation for SAT's and ACT's are provided on a one to one basis. Sessions are one on one: one student- one coach! No groups! You can book sessions at practically anytime, 7 days a week!

Students will learn how to hone their test-taking skills using proven strategies and multiple, valid, modeled questions. According to their individual needs, students will build vocabulary, improve reading comprehension, expand logical reasoning and cognitive skills, and write a compelling essay in the classic format. In Mathematics, we will individually target the concepts and skills your student needs tweaking or reteaching that came from their Algebra I, II, Geometry I classes, or their standard based integrated Math I, II, III coursework. 

Set up an initial consultation & we will complete a diagnostic to understand where to pinpoint preparation OR Buy a package of sessions and spread them out or pay as you go- one session at a time. Still not sure? We will even use previous score reports to help diagnose and recommend session frequency needed before the big test date. Choose ‘Analyze my scores’ using our I’M READY form and our Director will reply with her recommendation regarding your student’s needs based on data from a previous test date’s detailed score report.

SPECIALTY HELP

Orton-Gillingham-based corrective reading, handwriting correction, and kindergarten readiness

Get Started


Sometimes a student is not just struggling in reading or language arts-they are a struggling reader. Struggling readers, with or without a diagnosis of a reading disability or dyslexia need special corrective reading techniques. An Orton-Gillingham approach to correcting reading is the gold standard in the industry. Teaching the encoding and decoding of sounds and building phonological processing is key to changing a struggling reader to a thriving one. Multi-sensory, explicit, systematic corrective reading instruction is an alternative approach to teaching reading, writing, and spelling-that really works. It takes an investment in time-but the results are real.

Like ALL of our programs, our corrective handwriting program is research-based! Our curriculum draws from years of research to provide developmentally appropriate, multi-sensory tools and strategies to correct letter formation, orientation, spacing, and posture. Let us know if you would like to add corrective handwriting to your tutoring goals, or that handwriting is the focus of your tutoring as a stand alone goal.

Kindergarten Readiness: Our one to one program helps little learners transition from exploratory pre-school programs to big school by building essential big school skills like sustained attention, proper pencil grasp, understanding and responding to direction words- plus the readiness academically in reading, writing, and mathematics. 

 

BUILD ATTENTION, LEARN STUDY SKILLS, OWN THE LEARNING PROCESS- THROUGH THE POWER OF COACHING


F.O.C.U.S.

Focused Organized Children Using Strategies

Get Started

Using the power of neuroscience, Success4School's FOCUS coaching is an evidence-based program that children ages six through ten LOVE. Backed by research, FOCUS is a partner program arming child, teacher, and parent with strategies to strengthen focus, memory, attention, organization, emotional control, impulsivity and other executive functions. 


Academic & Executive Skills Coaching

Get Started

Maybe you are struggling with things like… staying organized, completing tasks, sticking to tasks, following through, emotional control, social issues, dealing with perfectionism, starting or shifting tasks, staying focused, time management, or more?

Study Skills a need?  Study Skills are more about changing behaviors and developing tools and strategies than they are about cramming down a way to study. Underachieving students are often very smart but lack the motivation or know-how or both.

Coaching works! Neuroscientists suggest that the brain is flexible in its ability to learn all the time and new research provides evidence of this when the brain is challenged or when new experiences occur. Coaching actually helps to forge new neural pathways in the brain, allowing it to develop competencies in areas that have been deficient prior. This is how new habits, attitudes, and skills are developed.

PARENT COACHING-HELP ME PARENT THE CHILD I HAVE!

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to being a loving, effective parent. Parent Coaching is a new method of coaching focused on ensuring a positive parent-child relationship through a compassionate, non-judgmental, collaborative partnership between parents and a trained, experienced coach.

This relationship allows a parent to successfully identify and navigate the challenges of raising children and striving for a healthy family. The parent coaching relationship provides the ongoing support and education needed to be successful in a process of change. Coaching is a strengths-based approach to reduce family stress; expand choices; and achieve positivity. Using powerful & effective tools for improving relationships, parents utilize coaching as a way to gain insights into their parenting, identify strengths, clarify goals, and to incorporate strategies to address challenges with respect to each family's specific needs.

Get Started!

GETTING STARTED IS EASY. NEXT STOP- INITIAL CONSULTATION !

 

Discovery-appointment #1-initial consultation

Everyone gets started with an initial consultation-it’s two appointments, one flat fee, and worth your time!

The first part is the Discovery Appointment. This is an appointment for the student. Our learning specialist will explore your goals and determine your child's learning and thinking style. Parents need to bring in a copy of the child's report card, teacher contact information, and any psycho-educational evaluations. After a brief chat, parents will then complete intake forms. Feel free to bring any discipline, academic, organizational or other concerns to the table- so we can provide support for the whole child and family in mind. We want to help you, regardless. Once we gather all the data-we will make recommendations.

STRATEGY & ACTION-APPOINTMENT #2-INITIAL CONSULTATION

The second part is the Strategy & Action Appointment. Results from the Discovery Appointment are shared as well as recommended services. If a family is invited to participate in services, we will walk you through every step of the way. You will find, as most parents do, that this consultation is not just some skills assessment like at big name learning centers- but it is a platform for change for every child & family. Take-away strategies will be discussed in the meeting, regardless if you move forward with services. Should either party decide not to move forward, the diagnostician is happy to complete a written narrative summary of the recommendations*, so you can implement other recommended strategies at home or seek related services. Those that move forward will receive a SuccessPlan for their child, so we are all on the same page.

PLACEMENT & COST-LAST STEP

After you decide you want to move forward with services, you will work with the Services Director to choose standing session times that work with your family-once set, sessions begin. The initial consultation is $195, flat-fee and includes both appointments. There are no other hidden fees- and you are under no obligation to move forward with services-just insightful data empowering parents to make decisions on their own terms.

Families can choose to schedule a free phone consultation to learn what we’re about, ask questions, understand costs, & more. However, some families are ready right now. If that’s you- skip this call and just move forward with the initial consultation. Just click ‘schedule’ to choose either.
