On another note, we are also getting back into SAT and ACT training. The first exam of the year takes place in October which many students are signed up for. 

We have diagnostic tests every other week on Saturdays at 8am for SAT/ACT/HSPT/ISEE. We had one on Saturday August 17th and the next one we have is on Saturday August 31st. 

We have had many students in here for consultations with our co-owner Rob going over scores and getting prepared for their prep. 

All our diagnostic tests are free as well as our consultations with Rob.

Our staff went to Parris Middle School for the week to help with registration Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday  from 8-12noon.

Summer Fun!

August 2nd, 2013

Summer School is ending… our SAT courses are underway and Fall is right around the corner! 

Many of the summer school classes ended this week and we have had a lot of students coming to the Study Hut for help through their classes. Geometry, spanish and government were three classes that many students were taking over the summer.

We have an SAT class going on at both our Manhattan and Redondo Beach locations. After the first 2 weeks, the students in Redondo went up an average of 100 points on their exams.

Many students have been starting SAT training so they do well on the SAT exams coming up in the fall. We have many families who are purchasing packages.

Remember, we have a 24 (12 – 2 hour) sessions, 32 hour (16 – 2 hour) sessions, and a 40 (20 – 2 hour) sessions packages! 

We also offer ACT Packages as well if you are interested!

We have a free diagnostic test for the ACT and SAT coming up this Saturday – August 3rd, and another one coming up in 2 weeks on August 17th!! 

With Fall right around the corner, students are calling in to reserve times and dates for the fall to come into the Study Hut. We have created a list and it’s first come/first serve.

We have also been really successful this summer with our reading/writing/math students who are in elementary and middle school that are preparing for their coming school year.

Contact us if you would like to know anymore information about any of these topics listed above.

Summer traveling plans!!

July 23rd, 2013

“Summertime,

And the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’
And the cotton is high

Your daddy’s rich
And your mamma’s good lookin’
So hush little baby
Don’t you cry”

We all know the famous song about Summertime! For many of our tutors, summertime is a relaxing few months and gives many of our tutors time to travel and plan fun trips to new places. Many of our girl tutors planned a fun camping weekend in Big Bear and had a great time out in the wilderness.

Our office managers and assistant managers including Co-Owners Rob and SP, MB Office Manager Sam, MB Assistant Manager Kristen, El Segundo Office Manager Adam, RB Office Manager Justin and RB Assistant Manager Tara took a rode trip to the Green River in Utah and canoed for 3 days and over 80 miles down the river. They came back with sunburns and many of them in pain – but also with unforgettable stories and great bonding moments.

One of our tutors went to Europe for a month and a half to backpack through the European Union from the beginning of June until the middle of July.

Other trips included places like Hawaii, San Francisco, music festivals, Mexico, Nashville, and many more.

We are gearing up for Fall and keeping a list of students who want certain days and times during the fall semester – so let us know if you want to be added to our list.

As August slowly approaches, we are getting ready to say goodbye to some of our amazing co-workers here at the Study Hut.

Our MB Office Manager Sam – who has worked at the Study Hut since the beginning – is leaving for Grad School in Nashville soon .

Our El Segundo Office Manager Adam is leaving soon for Texas and our RB Assistant Manager Tara is leaving for Grad School in Northern California soon as well.

We are sad to see them leave, but they are a huge part of our Study Hut family.

Assistant Manager Kristen is learning Spanish!!

May 4th, 2013

One of our two assistant managers at the MB Study Hut is learning to speak Spanish!

Kristen has decided that since many of our tutors and both our co-owners speak Spanish, that she would learn the language as well.

Behind her desk, we have created a “Spanish Word of the Day” section, where it lists all the new words she has learned.

Other sections behind her desk include important fliers that we put up with important information regarding what’s going on at the Hut and courses that we are offering! She also has artwork and notes that her students have made for her.

Each day she is given a new word of the day, either by one of us that works at the Study Hut, or by a student that goes to the Study Hut. The students love it and many of them quiz her when they come in for tutoring to see if she remembers them.

She does well with the vocabulary words but she gets confused when we try to teach her to conjugate verbs. She is still trying to learn basic skills like the difference between the EL and LA articles before words for masculine/feminine.

 

Here are a list of some of her words:

Nadar: to swim

Bailar: to dance

galleta: cookie

la playa: the beach

Feliz Navidad: Merry Christmas

Gordo: fat

Gustar: To like

el juego: The game

Estoy en fuego: I’m on fire

Turquesa: Turquiose

dulce: candy

el barco: the boat

And many others!!

If you have any suggestions for words of the day.. you can e-mail samantha at samantha@studyhut.com

Or you can leave a comment below this post and we will be sure to make note of the new words of the day to add to Kristen’s wall.

We hope you have enjoyed this post!
