Hermosa Beach ACT & SAT Students

February 21st, 2016

Spring is around the corner and that means many high school students will be taking college admissions exams. Understandably, this can be a stressful time for these Hermosa Beach ACT & SAT Students, and as many of you may have heard, the SAT will be changing formats in March. The new SAT will now feature four sections: Reading, Writing, Math with calculator, and Math without calculator. Additionally, to the relief of many, there will no longer be a penalty for incorrect guesses. This means that, similar to the ACT, you should make sure to not to leave any questions blank. In fact, the new SAT looks very similar to the ACT in its structure with the important note that the SAT does not contain a science section, but instead contains two math sections.

LSAT Tutoring-improve your score!

November 8th, 2015

With the opening of Hut Educational Consulting across from Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach, our team of tutors and counselors here at Study Hut has expanded its range of services to include some of the tougher post-graduate admissions tests, including but not limited to the LSAT. While some of our team members have been doing LSAT tutoring for several years, others are brand new to it and have had to commit to a full-scale refresher in order to get caught up to speed with recent changes to the test, as well as the specific tutoring strategies that are critical for students in each of the sections on the LSAT. When tutoring a student for the LSAT, it is absolutely critical for LSAT tutors to understand their specific students’ strengths and weaknesses. A specific strategy or time-management approach that may work for a student who has just begun his or her training may not be effective for a high-performing, well-prepared LSAT student looking to bump up his or her score by just a few points.

LSAT tutoring

Although students often report that the dreaded Games sections is the most difficult section and accordingly think that the majority of training time should be allocated toward practicing those exercises, that is not always the case for every student. Oftentimes, students think that they need the more LSAT tutoring in the Games section, but they actually just need to get a few basic concepts clarified. Many students are able to bump up their scores quite significantly in the Reading Comprehension and Logical Reasoning sections through hard work, consistent practice, and some support on tough questions from an LSAT tutor. At Study Hut Tutoring and Hut Educational Consulting, we are her to help answer those tough questions and give our students an edge with LSAT tutoring that will yield real results.

Tutoring for the Youngsters

February 28th, 2011

Young children are often overlooked when it comes to the tutoring industry. At the high school level, parents work hard to motivate and challenge their children academically. They pressure their child to work hard and get good grades at the hopes of the acceptance into a prestigious and well renowned school. Why not start at a young age?

Learning good study habits is imperative to the success of a student; not only in the school setting, but outside as well. Children need to learn study skills, reading skills, and good work ethic from the beginning. In the primary grades, students’ brains are developing at such a rapid rate that this time period proves to be the most crucial in a student’s life. By setting that foundation, the student will have a more transparent view of how to be an outstanding scholar. At study hut, we provide tutoring to all ages. In the younger grades, a student’s academics are primarily focused on literacy. We cater to children by assisting them with fluency, comprehension, and accuracy. The extra practice allows them to feel more confident and motivated in the classroom which produces overall better grades. Needless to say, extra tutoring for young students in the primary grades is extremely beneficial and should not be dismissed.
