SOAR: Set goals! Organize! Ask questions! Record progress!

Created by Susan Kruger, M.Ed. to organize, engage, and motivate students for success, this nationally acclaimed program provides students in grades 6-12 with effective strategies to improve school performance.

Specialty Tutoring’s SOAR coach works one-on-one with students, using the SOAR curriculum to guide and motivate students to use effective time management and organization to achieve better grades and improved attitudes. One full semester of SOAR sessions is strongly recommended.

Parents are an integral part of this process! The first session is a meeting between SOAR coach, parent, and student, during which current study habits are discussed and goals are set. Ongoing communication between SOAR coach and parent is strongly recommended for optimum results.

Through the SOAR program, the student will:

  • Identify strengths, establish priorities & set goals
  • Manage time using a planner
  • Organize a binder for all classes
  • Learn strategies for organizing a home study space, school locker, and book bag
  • Work effectively with teachers and peers in the classroom setting
  • Meet weekly with a SOAR coach to monitor and reinforce use of strategies
  • Form habits that will be valuable assets in college and the workplace

Pricing for the SOAR program is as follows:

  • $35 supply fee due at enrollment
  • $40/hr. session fee (1 hr. per week minimum requirement; more sessions possible by request and dependent upon SOAR coach availability)
  • Fees may apply to missed sessions without proper notification
