SmartStart Workshop Information
SmartStart Workshops help students reach new heights by teaching them top-notch organizational and study skills!
Private classes include six hours of one-on-one instruction in the SmartStart program and are available on a limited basis. Classes are scheduled with the teacher and usually take place at the teacher's home or office. Cost is $495 per student.
Students in all Study Smart workshops receive a student manual, organizational tools and a four-color pen. All students also receive Study Smart's custom-made dividers and planners.
We ask parents to attend for 15 minutes at the end of the last class so we can go over the materials learned and explain how to reinforce those skills at home.
Students can be registered by phone or by mail. For information or registration, call at 281-265-3828.
To register for any Study Smart workshop, you must pay the required registration fee of $279. Of this, $90 is a non-refundable deposit. (You may opt to pay only $90 when you register, but you will be charged an additional handling fee of $10.00. The balance of $189 would then be due at the start of the first class and would be payable only by cash, check or money order.)
If you need to transfer to another workshop for any reason, as long as you give ten business days' notice, there is no charge. Without ten days' notice, you will be charged $90.
Any returned check is subject to a charge of $25.
If you miss one class in a series, you may make it up within 6 months, but must pay a $25 make-up fee.
So that students may learn optimally, we reserve the right to dismiss disruptive students. In this instance, no refund will be given. If your student is disruptive, you may be asked remain in the building or to attend the class with your student.
In most instances, parents are not allowed to remain in the classroom during instruction. (We don't mind eavesdropping, though!)
Please be sure your student is on time!
