Collegewise Academic Services (CAS)

College readiness goes beyond just admissions. Students need a solid academic foundation, sharpened study skills and time management, and the right tools to become confident learners. Our test prep and tutoring program options work together seamlessly by leveraging expert advice and personalized study strategies—which is why Collegewise Academic Services (CAS) is so effective. Students can participate in one-on-one tutoring, small-group test prep courses, and have access to classroom options that will ensure their success.

Tutors are available in-person and online. Currently, we have local tutors in New Jersey (Millburn, Fanwood, and Bernardsville); California (Redondo Beach, Irvine); North Carolina (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill); and Texas (Austin). Even if the closest Collegewise office is hundreds (or thousands) of miles from where you live, you’ll still have access to top-notch courses and tutors. Our online experts conduct student meetings from across the country using platforms like Skype and Zoom.

Test Prep

Our test prep and curriculum tutoring go hand-in-hand. We believe that helping students understand the academic material they need to succeed on a test or in the classroom is far better than teaching only test-taking tricks (though we teach those too!). For example, we show students how to read between the lines before we ever present them with an SAT/ACT reading section. We believe that students feel most confident with a solid academic foundation, supplemented by smart test-taking strategies. Just as important, we’re thrilled that many of our test-prep students begin to thrive in the classroom as a result of their improved academic preparation.

Private Test Prep (SAT, ACT, & SAT Subject Tests)

Our private tutors provide the tailored prep needed to meet a student’s personal testing goals. We hire academic experts and then train them to customize the pace and focus of each program to meet the needs and learning style of each individual. Lessons and homework assignments are created for each student. Collegewise also has a proud track record of helping students with diagnosed learning disabilities succeed on standardized tests, including teaching students how to use extended time effectively.

Tutoring

Collegewise curriculum tutors don’t just “tutor.” We identify your child’s strengths, encourage academic curiosity, and improve critical thinking skills. We customize all curriculum lessons for each student so that the student succeeds in the classroom and learns the academic skills that will take him/her through college. Plus, we make study topics more fun! Tutors only teach the subjects they love and our students catch their enthusiasm.
A tutor’s understanding of the way a student thinks happens naturally over time, so we ensure that students see the same tutor each week, and that homework assignments are tailored to them. Collegewise also has a proud track record of helping students with diagnosed learning disabilities succeed in school.

Elementary School

Elementary school years provide the foundation for all subsequent learning. Sometimes a student needs help learning how to learn, how to study, or how to progress academically. We have tutors who specialize in teaching and motivating younger students.

Middle School

The academic workload and degree of difficulty increase dramatically as students move from elementary to middle school. Our tutors are trained to help with this transition, as well as preparation for high-school-level work. Study skills coaching is frequently an especially important component of tutoring middle school students. Often students have missing skills that hinder their academic progress. Our tutors can identify which skills are lacking and help build a strong foundation.

High School

Our curriculum tutoring for high school students is designed to provide enrichment and/or remedial help. Collegewise tutors have specializations in every subject and level, through AP/IB. We can provide the academic safety net that even the most confident student needs once in a while. Our tutors’ enthusiasm for higher-level subjects motivates students to explore beyond the established curriculum.

College

Collegewise has tutors who can teach many college subjects—including tough subjects like organic chemistry, differential equations, calculus, 400-level literature and history courses, and engineering. Former students have even been known to send in their first college writing assignment to make sure it is good enough to turn into the professor.

Enrichment Curriculum

Our tutors are quite frankly amazing people with fascinating pursuits and talents. (Beekeeping and playing professional trumpet, anyone?) If a student wants to explore areas of interest that schools generally do not cover, here are just some of the enrichment subjects our tutors can cover: computer programming (including database creation and web design); European military history; Shakespeare; songwriting; science fiction; environmental science and organic farming; documentary filmmaking; and engineering. Ask us about any subject—we probably have a tutor who knows it!

Study Skills/Organizational Help

If homework causes fights in your household or your student procrastinating is making you anxious, we can help take the stress away and restore student confidence by teaching him/her study skills and how to manage time/organize. Our tutors have extensive experience with helping students with diagnosed learning disabilities. Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant (LDTC) is also on staff.

Assistive Technology

We offer help in learning how to use iPad apps and Internet tools for writing, reading, and brainstorming. Our tutors can teach students to utilize their equipment effectively by leveraging cloud-based tools and organization apps to help him/her become more organized and engaged in school.
