ACADEMIC MANAGEMENT RETAINER:

  • Educational Support

HIGH SCHOOL JUNIOR YEAR

 
EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT RETAINER

An advising support retainer, designed to compliment the efforts of parents and students who are navigating what has become a disrupted educational process during the time of COVID-19.

Pre-COVID educational expectations for students: pay enough attention in class, complete homework, commensurately compensated with good grades and college admissions, graduating into prosperity—where parents intervened rarely—are being challenged

Since March 2020, parents and students are bereft of essential information, and even a familiar school structure from which they can devise and execute an effective academic plan

When families retain Creative Marbles experts: 

  • Parents and students gain on-demand access to advisors, as well as timely, forward-looking guidance, tailored to each family’s specific educational needs.
  • Parents learn how to transform partnerships with teacher(s) to best support their students’ effort to learn from home. 
  • Students learn how to manage a digitalized educational process.
  • Students gain a sounding board to better direct their learning process to gain greater confidence in one’s inherent ability.
  • Families can either define or revise college admissions strategies, utilizing our nationwide network of university staff to support students’ higher education goals.

A diverse advisory team, including a Harvard trained expert with a decade of high school teaching experience, now directly counseling families regarding a variety of educationally related topics.
