As a comprehensive, private educational services company, SolutionSkills, Inc. has provided a broad range of innovative services and programs to students, parents, teachers, and schools. Beginning primarily as a tutorial service, this company has grown each year by adding new programs to help meet the diverse needs of a rapidly changing educational establishment.
We believe that individuals can learn skills to be successful and self-sufficient. We also believe that educational and related services should be geared toward helping a person reach his or her potential through a caring, personal intervention with concerned educational professionals at a reasonable cost.
We pride ourselves on our personal approach to our customers, students and parents. As a small business, we strive to help each person by determining the need and creating a customized solution. Whether it is to improve an SAT or ACT score or to help an individual academically or personally succeed, that is what we are about. We have a professional but flexible approach that is designed to help the individual to succeed.
In addition to our tutoring and test prep programs, SolutionSkills offers a variety of education related programs such as study skills/motivational workshops, community parent workshops and school based test prep centers.
