While social issues become a challenge for the middle school student, so do academic and organizational skills. This is especially true for the sixth grader who now has multiple teachers, numerous assignments and diverse expectations. Therefore, organizational skills and study habits become crucial. Mentaur Learning recommends a Study Skills Course to help middle schooler’s understand how to learn, which will help them throughout their intermediate and high school years. During these years, a student should be reading and writing more, as well as working on building a vocabulary. Mentaur Learning utilizes a vocabulary and writing series curriculum in workshops or in combination with subject tutoring. For math, Mentaur utilizes an effective series that builds toward high school level math concepts.
