SAT Prep, Writing & Subject Tutoring
The Landry Learning Center offers a wide array of academic coaching, standardized test preparation, teaching, and tutoring services that focus on student-centered learning and improve overall student performance. Our teaching fosters intellectual curiosity, improves critical thinking, and better prepares students for the rigors of a university education. Our educators take a holistic approach to learning - The Landry Method. We teach students how to learn rather than to simply memorize information. In doing so, we create independent, resourceful, and motivated students with the skills to use their minds effectively. We work with students from elementary school to graduate school across a large field of subjects in both the social and hard sciences.
Teach. Tutor. Think.
Our philosophy of standardized test preparation centers on helping students master concepts, learn test taking skills, and maximize performance.
We offer one-on-one tutoring geared toward helping students reach their full academic potential on standardized tests and across a wide variety of school subjects.
Strong writing skills are imperative to high school and college success no matter the degree program. As such, we offer a variety of courses to meet all students' needs.
Our philosophy of standardized test preparation centers on helping students master concepts & then focusing on test taking strategies to maximize performance. First, we assess each student's learning style and identify aspects of the test with which the student is struggling. We track the student's progress through an initial diagnostic exam followed by subsequent intermittent practice exams. We then adjust the study plan according to the student's progress. Our students consistently improve their SAT scores by 200+ points, and some have even increased their scores as much as 350 points.
We are a small collective of teachers, tutors, academic coaches, and education counselors who take a holistic approach to creating independent, resourceful, and motivated students who will ultimately become lifelong learners. We work with both high school and college students to maximize their academic potential by engaging them in the learning process and encouraging a love of learning.
Our master teachers, tutors, & academic coaches will prepare you for the SAT, teach you better time management skills, & help you improve your study skills .
