Academic Mentorship

For many international students, the transition to American classrooms can be daunting — changes in expectations and teaching styles can be disorienting and can cause capable students to struggle with their coursework.

In Academic Mentorship, Prestans teachers work one-on-one with students to help them to understand and complete their current assignments, to fill in knowledge gaps, and to learn the study skills and strategies that lead to academic success in American schools. Our teachers provide feedback on drafts, craft lessons that reinforce concepts students struggle with in school, and anticipate and address weaknesses. This targeted, proactive tutoring helps students manage a challenging transition and achieve better academic results.
