What Kind of Preparation do you Offer?
We offer individually tailored academic instruction to students preparing for or currently attending business school. Many students find business school to be particularly challenging. Additional preparation, instruction, and review can provide useful supplements for students facing new, demanding academic challenges.
General Content of Program
Our business school tutors engage students in a comprehensive review of the material. Through one-on-one instruction, we prepare students for the various forms of participation, exams, and projects in a business school curriculum. Our goal is to help make the business school experience deeply rewarding for our students, both academically and professionally.
Most business school curricula cover certain fundamental subjects, including those listed below. Our tutors may also be able to offer instruction in courses not included in the following list; contact us for more information.
