Since 1991, Professor Ha and his tutors have counseled generations of students on how to get into the college of their choice, what career to choose, and how to be successful in school. We emphasize on developing a bond of trust with our students so that we can find out their personal struggles and help them overcome them. College is one of the major events that determine one’s course in life. It is never too early to start preparing for it. We often find that the successful students in college are those who have defined a path for themselves during grade school, have a solid plan to achieve their goal, and stick to it with steadfast resolve.
Unlike the school teachers who only get one year to make their mark on a group of learners, the staff at the Professor Ha Tutoring Center have the benefit of monitoring a student’s progress as they grow up. Education is always a long term endeavor. It takes time to develop a bond between the teacher and the student. We continually identify our kids’ shortcomings and take steps to address them. We help mold them into efficient and motivated students. We give them the tools to be successful in class as well as to make the right choices in life.
For those committed to a path of higher education, we will help them develop a plan of the classes to take and the activities to engage in that would maximizes their chances. The goal is to maintain good grades in school and participate in a variety of extra-curricular activities. We specialize in preparation for major tests such as the SAT, the AP, and the ACT. These tests are major challenges for any students. The good news is that they are all standardized, so with a systematic approach and hard work, any one can score well on them.
When it’s time to apply for college, we will sit down with the students and discus about what universities would be a good fit for them. We will go over each school’s requirements and narrow down the choices. Next, we will help the students organize their application and write the required essays. The essays are a vital component of the application because they help the students distinguish themselves from other well-qualified applicants. We will make sure all the timelines are met and the students present themselves in the best possible light. Furthermore, we will assist them with applying for scholarships and federal aids, which will definitely alleviate the burden of college tuition.
We often maintain contact with our students who have gone onto college. We counsel them on what to expect in college classes, and how to live independently on their own. Many of our successful graduates have come back to the Center to share their experiences with the younger generation. As teachers, there is nothing that brings us more joy than to see our students succeed. Our goal has always been to help each child reach his or her potential and be able to pursue the career they love.
Please schedule a private meeting to discuss how we can help your child reach the educational goals. All of our meeting are confidential, and we are always available for our students to consult on any matter.
