$80,000 IN GRANTS PLUS MULTIPLE SCHOOLS-OF-CHOICE

NOVEMBER 21, 2013:  EARLY ACCEPTENCES TO SCHOOLS OF CHOICE!

Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences joins the roster of early acceptances here at NorthStar, with specific thanks from parents and students for help in the application process (especially the essay!) and previous hard work here in SAT and the like.  Other schools-of-choice achieved by our NorthStar students:  West Point, Duke, Syracuse and many more.

FEBRUARY 27, 2013:  30 POINTS = $40,OOO

One of our HCRHS seniors just raised his SAT Critical Reading score another 30 points.  Clemson immediately doubled it's scholarship offer, to a total of $80k over four years!  This student took NorthStar's full SAT prep course during junior year and increased greatly.  He decided as a senior to come in for a 5-hour refresher before one more stab at reaching a "magical" level.  He did it!  The parents' $2K investment in tutoring has yielded $80K in scholarship offers.  Not bad!

ISEE/SSAT SUCCESS IN 2016

"Thanks, Reid!  I had no idea some kids study & tutor for years for ISEE.  Just six hours with NorthStar, Wow!  She got into Pingry and Oak Knoll.  We're so proud of her!  We will see you in August with our younger daughter.  Again, thanks!

Note:  Our Child Study Team, each and all state-licensed:  School Psychologist, L.D.T.C., L.C.S.W., Masters' of Ed, Early Reading & Writing specialist.  We've effected several formal Child Study Evaluations to universally positive effect, elementary through h.s.  It's never too late to learn objectively how your student's ability stacks up to actual performance.  

ONLINE TUTORING AND ASSESSMENTS A DEVELOPING STRENGTH

 

Our strength and advantage will always take the form of 1:1 tutoring right here in our immaculate NorthStar Center.  We're committed to the highest standards, not least a consistency in maintaining the individual tutor match with your student.  

All of our tutors are adept at Skype.  We see an increasing trend -- once our tutor and student have established a working style -- in the use of Skype and basic document transfer as an equalizer for bad weather, hectic athletic or work schedules and such.  

As we embrace on-line work, our approach will ALWAYS be one of active interaction and not one of impersonal on-line test-taking in the manner of Khan and others. 

NorthStar is all about the individual student!
