HOW THINGS WORK
Study Hall offers both tutoring and work-study sessions. Tutoring options include small group (4 students), semi-private, and private lessons for most subjects. Work-study sessions are a great companion to tutoring and also very effective on their own. Work-study sessions are teacher supervised and take place in two-hour intervals. They allow students the opportunity to work uninterrupted under the guidance of a teacher for maximum productivity. Work stations are separated by tall dividers for better focus, noise reduction, and germ containment.
Please ask about financial assistance if needed.
Study Hall is meant to fill a need for parents who are eager to find secure and affordable educational assistance for their children.
